2025 BMW X3 (G45)

The Bavarian manufacturer has revealed the fourth generation of the X3 which is now bigger, better equipped and with a mild hybrid system and a new plug-in drive option, the BMW X3 G45.

With a refreshed two-volume body, the new X3 is slightly larger and wider than its predecessor (G01) but with the same wheelbase. It comes with new 19″, 20″ and 21″ rims, but also a few details that are reserved for the most powerful version of the M50, whose cabin is decorated with special seats and elements in the familiar colors of the M division. The car is spacious and now offers a luggage space of 570 liters. When when it comes to price, the new generation ranges from 65,230 to 82,500 euros.

The X3 has received upgraded petrol options with a 48-volt mild hybrid system, and the plug-in petrol option has also been upgraded. Each X3 comes paired with xDrive and an 8-speed automatic transmission, with the M50 at the top of the range powered by a 3.0-L inline-6 ‚Äč‚Äčturbo gasoline engine assisted by a mild hybrid system that produces 398 hp (297 kW) and 428 lb-ft (580 Nm) of torque. That’s enough power to push the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds with a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

The BMW X3 (30e) is powered by a 2.0-L four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine combined with an electric motor for a total output of 299 hp (223 kW) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. It is equipped with a 19.7 kWh battery that ensures a range of up to 90 kilometers (WLTP) without the assistance of an internal combustion engine. Another option is a 2.0-L four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine with 255 hp (190 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.

The cheapest option is a 2.0-L four-cylinder turbo petrol with 190 hp (142 kW) and 229 lb-ft (310 Nm) of torque, which is enough to get the car to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.8 seconds with the top speed of 215 km/h (133 mph).

Diesel fans will have to settle for just one option, a 2.0-L four-cylinder engine with 197 hp (147 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
