The design of the BMW X3.

The BMW X3 founded the Sports Activity Vehicle class, and the latest version retains the model’s unmistakeable character. In fact, the BMW X3 appears more athletic than ever before ,and, on the inside, features selected materials that underline the vehicle’s outstanding quality.


The exterior of the BMW X3 comes with sportiness as standard. Thanks to the wide bumper with powerful air inlets, the front develops a commanding presence. The large double kidney grille makes a clear statement with its prominent central position and is brimming with self-confidence. Distinctive headlights extending from both sides to the kidney grille add the finishing touch to the front and are Xenon as standard or optionally available in full LED technology. Integrated inside them – and in the exterior mirror housings as well – are the indicator lamps. The standard-feature fog lights are also optionally available with LED. 
From the side, the silhouette has the unmistakeable BMW X3 look. A character line extending to the rear emphasises the hint of a wedge shape, which adds a further air of dynamics. The unique interpretation of the Hofmeister kink identifies the vehicle unambiguously as a BMW X3. With its dominant bumper, the rear rounds off the overall appearance and emphasises the solid, stable stance. Another striking detail is the underbody protection, which, in conjunction with the xLine package, is in Aluminium look.

Adaptive LED Headlights.

The Adaptive LED Headlights include low-beam and high-beam headlights and turn indicators with full LED technology. The LED turn indicators are placed clearly above the characteristic LED daytime running lights, which give off light from the three-dimensional light tubes typical of BMW. The Adaptive LED Headlights also feature the anti-dazzle High-Beam Assistant, LED fog lights, cornering lights and Adaptive Headlights with variable light control for optimal road illumination and enhanced visibility at night – making driving almost as relaxing as during the day.


The interior of the BMW X3 combines a high-quality atmosphere with ingenious functionality. Exciting lines divide the instrument panel and the inside of the doors. Together with the vertical curve in the centre console, they emphasise the modern look while retaining BMW typical driver orientation. Thanks to the elevated seating position, all passengers enjoy an outstanding view. In addition, the BMW X3 impresses with equipment options of a quality that you can see and feel immediately. Selected materials with details such as chrome trims and highlighted accents emphasise the modernity and quality of the interior.

Colours and materials.

The selection of colours and materials for the BMW X3 offers a range of high-quality options. The spectrum for the exterior ranges from classical variations such as Mineral White metallic to expressive tones such as Deep Sea Blue metallic. This is the perfect way of underlining the self-confident, robust appearance of the BMW X3. The vehicle impresses with first-class materials and designs on the inside, too. Many different decors are available for the interior surfaces, for example, Fineline anthracite with accent lines in Pearl-Gloss Chrome for a modern ambience. Or exclusive wood designs, such as Burled Walnut, that lend the interior an elegant note. A selection of leather seat covers is available to add an individual finishing touch to the interior. These include Leather Nevada Mocca with striking contrast stitching in Active Red.


As soon as you get into the BMW X3, you’ll be mesmerised by the atmosphere. Ample space and the elevated seating position convey a feeling of safety. The excellent all-round view is augmented by the large optional panorama glass roof, which allows plenty of light into the interior. Thanks to outstanding sound insulation, there is no disturbance from loud noises outside. Instead, you can enjoy your favourite music with the optional harman/kardon Surround Sound System. High-quality materials, numerous storage possibilities and comfort functions increase the feel-good factor in the BMW X3 − and turn even the longest journey into a comfortable pleasure.
