A choice of three different trim levels is available with the X3 and these include the sDrive30i, xDrive30i and M40i. All models share an eight-speed automatic transmission and the only RWD model in the X3 range is the 30i sDrive, while the other two trim levels boast all-wheel drive.
A 2.0-liter four-pot graces the 30i twins that manages 248 hp. Standard features include 18-inch wheels as well as a multifunction steering wheel, three-zone climate control, and 10-way power-adjustable front seats. Infotainment features include an 8.8-inch touchscreen that enables HD Radio, Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth streaming as well as a single USB port. A 12-speaker premium sound system is also added to the list. Standard safety features include a rearview camera, park distance control in the front and rear as well as automatic collision mitigation, pedestrian monitoring, and forward-collision warning.
The M40i sees the addition of a bigger, turbocharged inline-six that churns out 382 hp and adds some extra sporty bits in the way of M-Sport suspension and brakes, as well as satellite radio. This model also receives the M-Sport specification as standard.
