Various prototypes of it new BMW X3 they roam the streets for over a yearbut now the time for her is drawing near official presentation of the model.
The medium SUV of the German brand is slowly completing its testing and our partners spotted a prototype in snowy routes and, in fact, they had the opportunity to draw and two photos of its interior. Who you are loyal “followers” of the columnknows that this is not an easy condition.
What differentiates her next generation of X3 from the current one is single curved screen with which it will be provided, in contrast to the two independent that exist in the published versions. It integrates two screensone for the digital instrument panel and one for the infotainment system.
And if for the first we can distinguish some indicationsfor the second one we see nothing. He takes care of that protective filter, for which, in fact, there is relevant warning message to the driver not to remove it!
Another important difference is the replacing the traditional gear lever with one minimalist switchbut also one new controller for iDrive. In addition, the steering wheel is flat bottom and has red and blue stitchingwhich means that this prototype has the equipment package «M Sport»although externally no corresponding elements are evident.
If by now you are wondering if it is about electric version or thermalthe charging port on front left fender indicates that it is about Plug-in hybrid variantwhich is expected to offer pure electric range of up to 100 km.
Externally camouflage remains sharp but the overall design seems to adopt quite a few elements from X1with bold mask, new bumper with large air intake. On the side distinguishing the recessed door handleswhile at the back the lighting bodies have new graphics.
Except PHEV variant of this prototype, we expect a full range gasoline and diesel powertrains. In addition, do not forget that it is also being prepared the new electric iX3which will be based on brand new platform Neue Klasse.
THE presentation of its next generation thermal BMW X3 is expected within 2024maybe even in the spring.
