The big news here is the X3 M and its twin-turbo, 3.0-litre inline-six that produces 486 horsepower, but also the 503-hp X3 M Competition that blasts from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds. Otherwise, the xDrive30i and M40i are more rational, more affordable and more fuel-efficient. Aside from the M Sport package enhancing the look and the drive of the X3, a choice of interior accenting is offered and richer materials are available with the BMW Individual packages.
