Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The 2015 BMW X3 facelift which made its global premiere at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year will be launched in India next month, reports

The new X3 subscribes to the brand’s current design philosophy with a revised kidney grille and headlamps that flow into the grille. The bumpers and taillights are also tweaked to give the SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle as BMW likes to call it) a modern appeal. The updated interior gets new color themes and trim materials.
