2020 BMW X3 in Vancouver
Exceptional levels of luxury, industry-leading BMW technology, and world-class performance make the 2020 BMW X3 one of the most popular crossover SUVs on the road today. BMW offers the 2020 X3 in a choice of four trims - sDrive30i, xDrive30i, M40i, and the hybrid gas/electric xDrive30e.
2020 BMW X3 sDrive30i
The base model X3 sDrive301 (it's anything but basic) starts things off with a 248-horsepower 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine with high-precision direct injection. The standard 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission features Sport and Manual shift modes, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, and Launch Control. The rear-wheel-drive sDrive30i also comes standard with BMW's terrain response system with four drive modes - Eco, Pro, Comfort, and Sport. Comfort and convenience features include tri-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, and 10-way power front sport seats. Twin-tube gas-pressure shock absorbers, a multi-link front axle suspension with spring struts, and Servotronic power-steering assist provide an exceptional ride and handling quality for the sDrive30i. New 2020 X3 sDrive30i models start at $56,200.
2020 BMW X3 xDrive30i
The 2020 X3 sDrive30i and xDrive30i models look somewhat identical, excluding the addition of BMW's Intelligent AWD to xDrive30i trims. Both come with a variety of advanced safety features, including Brake Drying, Dynamic Stability Control with Brake Fade Compensation, Start-off Assistant, Dynamic Traction Control, and Brake Stand-by. Chrome exhaust tips, heated, power-folding side mirrors, and 18" Y-Spoke light-alloy wheels with run-flat all-season tires also come standard on both trims. The MSRP for the 2020 BMW xDrive30i comes in at $58,900
2020 BMW X3 M40i
Buyers seeking more power and a higher standard of luxury should find the 2020 BMW X3 M40i to their liking. The M40i gets a bigger engine - a 3.0-litre BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder - SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a one-year All Access subscription, and a micro-filter ventilation system with replaceable active-charcoal filters. All models also come with BMW's Live Cockpit Plus. The Live Cockpit Plus suite includes navigation, an iDrive 6.0 touchpad controller, a digital instrument cluster, and natural voice recognition. Upgraded M sport suspension and brakes provide a spunkier, more athletic driving experience. Larger 19-inch double-spoke bi-colour alloy wheels, sportier Aluminum Rhombicle interior trim, and Cerium Grey accents on the exterior help set the M40i apart from the other trims. New 2020 BMW X3 M40i models start at $74,900.
2020 BMW X3 xDrive30e
BMW's X3 hybrid edition - the xDrive30e - adds exceptional fuel economy to the lineup. The xDrive30e gets powered by a 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder that features an integrated electric motor. Even with standard xDrive Intelligent AWD, the X3 hybrid gets an industry-leading combined fuel rating of 2.4 litres per 100 kilometres. The plug-in hybrid goes up to 50-kilometres before its gas-powered engine kicks in. The integrated electric motor puts out 107-horsepower on its own. The gas/electric combination gets the job done with 288-horsepower in total. Excluding its hybrid power train, the xDrive30e and XDrive30i look virtually identical. The 2020 BMW X3 xDrive30e models start at right around $65,000.
