BMW has already come up with a good solution to unexpectedly increased performance SUV competition from its premium brand counterparts by simply crowning its third-gen X3 line-up with the new 2017 BMW X3 M40i.
Initially set to withstand the Audi SQ5 as well as Mercedes-AMG GLC43, the newly-revealed range topping 2017 BMW X3 M40i shares the same driveline with the recently showcased X4 M40i M Performance. For 4.8 seconds it reaches 62mph. Its highest speed accounts for 155mph.
Disclosed here for the first time ahead of a start of British deliveries in November, the new vehicle has been drastically re-engineered for this year, with a fresh platform, forming the foundation for a incremental soar in dimensions, a loss in kerb weight over the outgoing 2010 second-gen X3 and a further increase in interior accommodation.
The car maker has stuffed its newborn with the new cutting-edge active cruise control as well as driving assistant plus package.
