The All-New Fourth-Gen BMW X3 Unveiled: Arriving In India Soon


BMW has officially introduced the fourth generation of the X3 SUV, boasting a comprehensive redesign inside and out, alongside a wider variety of powertrain options.

2025 X3-Exterior Design Refreshed:

The new X3 features a completely revamped front fascia. The most striking element is the enlarged kidney grille with its unique diagonal and vertical slat design. The headlights are now more aggressive with L-shaped DRLs that double as turn indicators. The sportier bumper design complements the overall look. Similar to the new 7 Series and i7, illuminated borders are standard on the M50 variant and optional on the 30e variant. The rear boasts new, slimmer taillights that share a design resemblance with the XM SUV. Standard equipment includes 19-inch alloy wheels, with optional upgrades to 20 and 21 inches available.

New X3-Dimension Adjustments:

The 2025 X3 has grown slightly in size compared to its predecessor. It now measures 4755 mm in length and 1920 mm in width, representing a 34 mm and 29 mm increase, respectively. The wheelbase remains unchanged at 2865 mm.

New X3 – Modernized Interiors:

Stepping inside, the 2025 X3 adopts a minimalist design approach. A new curved display dominates the dashboard, featuring a 14.9-inch infotainment system and a 12.3-inch instrument cluster. A flat-bottom steering wheel replaces the previous round design, and a new drive selector replaces the conventional gear knob. Ambient lighting adds a touch of personalization to the cabin.

The infotainment system runs on BMW’s latest iDrive 9 operating system, controllable via touch, the iDrive rotary controller, or steering-mounted buttons. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity comes standard, along with a panoramic sunroof, advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), and various other features.

Powertrain Options:

The 2025 BMW X3 offers a range of powertrain options catering to various driving preferences. Efficiency-minded drivers will find the X3 30e xDrive plug-in hybrid variant appealing. This model combines a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with a 48V mild-hybrid system, delivering a combined output of 255 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque.

For those seeking a more traditional gasoline option, the X3 20i xDrive comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 205 horsepower and 330 Nm of torque. Diesel enthusiasts can opt for the X3 20d xDrive, featuring a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine generating 194 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque.

The top performer is the new M50 xDrive, boasting a powerful 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged petrol engine that produces 398 horsepower and a staggering 580 Nm of torque. This powerhouse propels the SUV from 0 to 100 km/h in a mere 4.6 seconds, with a limited top speed exceeding 250 km/h.

All powertrain options are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission, and BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system comes standard across all variants.

Indian Launch And Pricing:

The new BMW X3 is expected to arrive in India by the end of 2024 or early 2025. Pricing information for the Indian market has not yet been revealed. However, considering the current generation’s price range of Rs 72.50 lakh to Rs 87.70 lakh (ex-showroom), the new model can be expected to carry a slight premium.
