The new BMW X3 has been given a new set of grilles that feature sharper angles, are wider at the top, and connected in the middle. That middle bit also houses a front-facing camera, which BMW calls the iCam, and hides it rather well.
The new X3 also gets new headlights, which are slimmer than before and feature new lighting elements, including BMW’s optional laser lights. The slim headlights combine with the sharper kidney grilles to give the new BMW X3 a sportier look than the current, outgoing model. Not only does it looks sportier, it looks more mature and more premium as well.
BMW also updated the front apron of the X3. The BMW X3 exterior also has the same underbody protection and side sill plats from the pre-LCI xLine trim. You can opt for the BMW X3 M40i Sport package, which brings larger front air intakes, black accents, and high-gloss black trim. M Sport models even get black kidney grille trim and roof rails.
As nice as it is to get some updated looks, modern customers care about technology above all else. Thankfully for X3 owners, the new BMW X3 brings new technology and driver-focused features. The 2022 BMW X3 discarded its old half-analog gauges for new digital ones and replaces its old iDrive screen for the current iDrive 7. The iDrive screen is also much larger, at 12.3 inches, which will make customers happy, and the old-style rotary controller was replaced for BMW’s more modern one.
The 2022 BMW X3 has a suite of powertrain options. The entry-level model, the BMW X3 xDrive20i, has a 2.0-liter turbo-four with 184 horsepower and 221 lb-ft of torque. It gets an eight-speed auto and xDrive all-wheel drive. BMW claims a 0-62 mph time of 8.4 seconds, with a fuel economy of 28-30 mpg.
The X3 xDrive30i has a similar turbo-four, just with 245 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. In the BMW X3 xDrive30i, 0-62 mph happens in 6.6 seconds, with a fuel economy of 27-30 mpg.
The top-of-the-line BMW X3 M40i comes with a 3.0-liter turbocharged I6 engine with 360 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. It also has an eight-speed auto and all-wheel drive but hustles from 0-62 mph in 4.9 seconds.
All BMW X3 engines get 48-volt mild-hybrid systems, which means they all get 48-volt starter generators that can help start the engine, add 11 horsepower to the engine for additional response and increase efficiency. It even helps with automatic start/stop, as the engine actually shuts down while coasting to a stop and the starter generator handles the rest. Then, the starter generator helps the car take off smoothly while the engine is still firing up, which helps make auto start/stop less jarring. And because the starter generator is essentially a small electric motor that can power the crankshaft, it can actually allow the engine to switch off while coasting at high speed and send just enough power to the wheels to maintain that speed.
