BMW Developing an X3 M Variant with 500-HP
  • Sources claim BMW has been developing an X3 M variant!

BMW is allegedly developing a next generation X3 M. BMW is developing the vehicle to compete with the Audi RS Q5 and Mercedes GLC 55 AMG. The allegedly planned X3 M is based on midsize SUV.

The X3 would be a true M variant. The X3 M will be powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six turbocharged engine. The X3 M will be able to deliver close to 500 horsepower.

If the X3 is being developed then it is currently being tested in the Northern parts of Europe. Sources claim BMW will release the G01 X3 before the end of 2017. 

The new X3 will grow and strive for a more powerful appearance. Since the current model X1 is larger in size than its predecessor, sources claim the X3 will be slimmer and that it will pack power. The 2017 X3 is expected to shed almost 100 kilograms. The loss in weight will be possible due to a new rear-wheel drive platform. Similarly the use of lightweight materials will further shed the weight.

Sources have also disclosed to Focus that the front-end won’t be flatter in the X3. The X3 will have a beefier front-end and a new set of LED headlights.

The X3 will also have a character line running from the front wheel arch on both door handles. The X3 will retain the typical M design and will have an aggressive front fascia.

The bumper will be sculpted along with large air curtains. As for the interior the X3 will also come with an innovative interior. The new X3 will be technologically advanced and luxurious at the same time.
