2020 BMW X3 M40i Specs

BMW X3

The top trim-level of the lot boasts the most powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter engine of the X3 family and adds M-Sport styling as standard. It also boasts exclusive access to two exterior paint options, but loses access to others and allows for some extra performance bits in the way of an available adaptive M Sport suspension as well as an M Sport differential. However, standard features aren’t extremely different from base-level, which is quite surprising considering the large price hike. Nevertheless, some added extras include a sunroof, keyless entry, and M-badged steering wheel along with an aerodynamic kit and this model delivers a much better driving experience than others and this goes hand in hand with worse fuel economy than its smaller-engine based siblings. It’s a great overall performance SUV and bests rivals in terms of fuel economy, though its interior is not as memorable as competitors.
