As a relatively compact crossover, you might expect the BMW X3
to be available - in this climate even in the United States - with a four-cylinder engine. But that wasn't the case until now, as BMW
has announced the availability of its TwinPower Turbo four to replace the 3.0-liter six-cylinder mill in the X3 xDrive28i.
The N20 engine is the same unit that's already available in the Z4
and new 328i
, and joins the X3 along with a raft of upgrades for the 2013 model year. Auto Start Stop, Driving Dynamics Control with ECO Pro, and a power tailgate all join the list of standard equipment, while an optional Driver Assistance Package (with Lane Departure Warning) and an M Sport Package join the options list.
Production of the 2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i with the N20 turbo four is scheduled to begin in April, with prices starting at $37,995 (inclusive of destination), with MSRP on the carry-over X3 xDrive35i pegged at $43,595. Follow the jump
