BMW’s third generation X3 has arrived and is available in showrooms now. The range consists of three variants, the xDrive20d, xDrive30i and xDrive30d, with more models joining the lineup in 2018 including two-wheel drive and plug-in hybrid models.

The all-new BMW X3 lands with a raft of changes and improvements to help it compete against other German SUVs like the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class and Audi Q5.

All models feature partial leather interior trim, tri-zone climate control, an automatic tailgate, a 6.5-inch colour infotainment screen with sat nav, BMW’s Connected Drive concierge services, digital radio, Bluetooth and wireless phone charging and Apple CarPlay smartphone mirroring.

Starting from $68,900 (plus on-roads) the 20d has gone up $1100 over the outgoing model and comes standard with 19-inch alloy wheels and a comprehensive suite of active safety systems, including cruise control with emergency braking, lane departure and forward collision warnings, a reverse camera and semi-automated parking assistance

The 30i and 30d cost $75,900 and $83,900 (plus on-roads) respectively, both up $2900, and the models bring more gear, including full leather trim, larger 20-inch alloys, keyless entry, a fully-digital instrument cluster, a high-res 10.25-inch colour display with gesture control commands and top-shelf navigation and a 20GB hard drive as well as more semi-autonomous driving functions such as adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go and lane keeping assistance.

All vehicles are all-wheel drive and come equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The xDrive20d is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo diesel which produces 140kW and 400Nm and is the most economical of the range, consuming 5.7L/100km.

The 30i gets a more powerful 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol producing 185kW and 350Nm which offers middle of the road performance of 0-100km/h in 6.3sec but the highest fuel consumption at 7.6L/100km.

The 30d gets a more powerful 3.0-litre turbo six-cylinder diesel that produces 195kW at 4000rpm and 620Nm at 2000-2500rpm. It’s shuttles 0-100km/h in 5.8sec and consumes a reasonable 6.0L/100km.

BMW is also offering a number of packages to spruce up the X3 in appearance and technology.

The M Sport package ($4550 on xDrive20d, $3800 on xDrive30i and 30d) adds features such as adaptive suspension, leather upholstery with black or blue contrast stitching, aluminium interior trim, M exterior bodykit, 19-inch alloys on 20d models and 20-inch alloys for 30i/30d variants.

The $2500 Innovations package, available exclusively for the 20d, adds missing higher-spec kit such as keyless entry, parking assistant, multi-function instrument display and adaptive LED headlights.

The Exclusive package ($3800 on all variants) adds woodgrain interior trims, ambient interior lighting, front seats with lumbar support and heating function and HiFi sound system.

Finally, the Rear Comfort package costs $1820 and adds amenities in the rear such as roller blinds, seat heating and backrest adjustment.
