The specs of the BMW X3 trims differ according to the engine, of which there are two - a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 hp and 258 lb-ft and a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with 382 hp and 369 lb-ft. The RWD sDrive30i and AWD xDrive30i trim levels use the four-pot and are the only ones to give you a choice of drivetrain configurations. The six-cylinder M40i comes in AWD only.
Standard specifications at the base level include 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic LED headlights, a roof spoiler, and a power liftgate. Other standard features include keyless entry, push-button start, a manually tilting/telescoping steering wheel trimmed in leather, Sensatec leatherette upholstery, power front seats, dual-zone climate control, and dual 10.25-inch digital displays - one a gauge cluster and one the infotainment screen, complete with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, navigation, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 12-speaker audio system. Standard driver assists are forward-collision alert, lane-departure alert, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The M40i gets larger 12.3-inch digital displays and a panoramic moonroof. Items such as heated and/or ventilated front seats, a trailer hitch, a wireless charger, and a Harman Kardon audio system all reside on the options list. Many options can be had separately or are bundled as part of a package.
