Performance & Efficiency
2.0 Liter, BMW TwinPower Turbo Inline 4-Cylinder Engine, 240 hp
Small is the next big idea in engines - namely, BMW's mighty TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder. Displacing just 2.0 liters, this 240-hp marvel generates 260 lb-ft of torque at just 1250 rpm, for potent thrust that kicks in right from the start and continues all the way up to 4800 rpm. Lightweight and smooth-running, it incorporates BMW's award-winning High Precision Direct Injection, Valvetronic and double-VANOS technologies. Its dynamic performance is equaled by spectacular fuel efficiency, taking you further on every gallon of gas.
8-Speed Automatic Transmission
The 8-Speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic system actually makes efficiency audible with its smooth and quick gear changes. Closer spacing between the additional gears reduces the engine's rev interval between shifts, meaning the gear-changes are hardly noticeable. And at higher speeds, the eighth gear reduces the number of revolutions per minute, ensuring an overall quieter and more fuel-efficient ride.
Choosing a BMW X3 with rear-wheel drive means you will be able to enjoy typical BMW agility and driving pleasure - namely precise handling, flawless cornering ability and incomparable dynamics. The BMW X3 sDrive is the perfect choice for those seeking a thrillingly sporty driving experience.
Brake Energy Regeneration
To supply a battery with electrical energy, the generator (alternator) is usually driven using engine power, which requires fuel. With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator produces electricity when the driver brakes or takes a foot off the accelerator. Kinetic energy that was previously unharnessed is transformed into electrical energy, then fed into the battery. In this way, electricity is generated without consuming fuel.
Dynamic Damper Control
Dynamic Damper Control lets you easily switch between the Comfort, Sport or Sport+ gear settings with just the push of a button. Using the data collected by sensors, the system calculates the best setting for each individual wheel and continually adjusts its suspension accordingly.
Safety & Security
BMW Assist eCall and TeleServices
In an emergency, BMW Assist eCall, now standard in all BMWs, automatically sends your location and relevant information to police and EMT services, saving critical time when you need it most. Also standard, with BMW TeleServices, your BMW knows exactly when the next servicing appointment is coming up and informs you about any maintenance requirements. Your BMW Service Center will call you to arrange an appointment. Wherever you are, your BMW Service Center is at your side.
Full Color Head-Up Display
Projects important travel information, such as vehicle speed and check control warnings, onto the windshield directly in your field of vision. For the first time, all Head-Up Display data is shown in full color, making information more precise and easier to process. Additional information including Navigation directional arrows and instructions, Lane Departure Warning messages, and updates on Entertainment information can also be displayed.
Displays video images of approaching traffic on the Control Display. Side-view cameras positioned in the front bumpers show traffic approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The top-view camera provides video images of the road alongside the doors, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors.
Active Driving Assistant
Active Driving Assistant brings the latest safety technologies to drivers with features like Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation and Pedestrian Warning. Lane Departure Warning alerts the driver when he or she is about to exit a lane unintentionally or when approaching the curb. The driver is alerted by a vibration in the steering wheel so drivers can respond accordingly. Frontal Collision Warning prevents collisions by warning the driver when approaching a vehicle ahead too quickly. The driver is alerted by an optical warning and an additional alarm. In addition, City Collision Mitigation helps prevents collisions by priming the brake system to reduce stopping distance. Pedestrian Warning has the same functionality but specifically prevents pedestrian collisions.
Active Blind Spot Detection
Looking forward isn't just a metaphor for our insatiable desire to innovate. It's also quite literal. The available Active Blind Spot Detection system helps eliminate blind spots to avoid collisions when changing lanes. Using radar sensors at the rear of the vehicle to monitor the traffic behind it, this system alerts drivers if a vehicle is in their blind spot by displaying a light on their side-view mirror housings. And on the chance the driver does not notice the warning and signals to indicate changing lanes, the light on the mirror housing begins to flash and the steering wheel vibrates.
