The 3-Series replacement will give birth to a new X3, which it’s rumoured may take things to another level.
Although nothing is official from BMW, their M Division might get its hands on the mid-size SUV according to Focus.de. This source says it will feature a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder engine producing close to 374 kW.
Initial data indicates towards a possible use of the current M3/M4 powertrain. If that’s the case, the the alleged X3 M will be competing with Audi’s RS Q5 and a possible AMG version of the new GLC.
Spy photographers have already caught several prototypes of the new BMW X3, which is expected to hit the market in 2017 with an engine lineup that will include updated 2.0-liter four-cyclinder and new 3.0-liter six-cyclinder petrol and diesel units.
