Following its international debut last year, the 2018 BMW X3 has reached India, spy shots published by CarToq have revealed. The all-new BMW X3 will likely have its local launch at Auto Expo 2018 next month.

BMW will likely launch the 2018 BMW X3 in India in the xDrive20d engine model.

The 2018 BMW X3 is the third generation of the mid-size luxury SUV. Underpinned by the CLAR platform, the redesigned BMW X3 is up to 55 kg lighter than its predecessor. It measures 4,708 mm in length, 1,891 mm in width and 1,676 mm in height. Its wheelbase spans a length of 2,864 mm. Internationally, the all-new BMW X3 is available with multiple 2.0-litre four-cylinder and 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines, all coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission. Drivetrain layout choices include sDrive RWD and xDrive AWD.

In India, BMW will likely launch the 2018 BMW X3 in the xDrive20d engine model. This would mean a 2.0-litre BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engine in the tune of 190 PS and 400 Nm of torque, the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission and the xDrive permanent AWD system. The spy shots suggest that our market will get the all-new BMW X3 in the Luxury Line grade.

The 2018 BMW X3 Luxury Line’s key highlights are LED headlights, LED fog lights, chrome kidney grille, bi-colour skid plates, chrome side window graphic, Frozen Gray side skirts, and 19- or 20-inch alloy wheels. The model seen in the images seems equipped with the 19-inch style 696 bicolour Ferric gray alloy wheels.
