Spied: BMW X3 in Pune

Kaustubh

Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!

After successfully launching its entry level SUV – BMW X1, the company is getting ready to launch its rival in the mid-size SUV segment – BMW X3. The BMW X3 will rival the likes of Audi Q5, Land Rover Freelander and Volvo XC60.

Indian Autos Blog has been told by sources that BMW will assemble the X3 in India at the Chennai plant. Currently the X3 is a CBU. The assembly operation could begin very soon for a mid 2011 launch. The X3 is basically an SAV that sits between the X1 and X5

Globally, the X3 is available in petrol and diesel engine options such as

  • 2.0-litre Diesel engine producing 184bhp
  • 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine producing 302bhp
