BMW introduces the new BMW X3 for 2015. The X3 made its first debut in 2003, followed by the second generation in 2011 and then an updated model four years later. The car has a new revised styling, and an addition of rear-drive and diesel models.
Of all the changes, what remains the same is the driving experience. The BMW X3’s chassis is an adaptation of the BMW 3 Series. It carries levels of engagement and proof rare among the mother models. Besides that, the chassis offers a ride-and-handling balance to the crossover’s weight and height, and the steering is linear and accurate.
The 300-hp N55 turbocharged six is as smooth and manageable as in its countless other applications, providing great power throughout its rev range, and scoots the 4200-pound xDrive35i to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds. All-wheel drive is standard with this engine, a well-programmed and modest eight-speed automatic transmission.
What is the price that you have to pay to own one? The BMW 35i starts at $46, 025, and goes up to $54, 325 for example rang, $950 for Cold Weather pack, $550 red paint, $2200 premium packages and $3150 Technology. The rear-drive sDrive28i and turbocharged four-cylinder engine on the other hand costs you around $40k. So, you do the math.
