New Entry Level BMW X3

BMW is now offering a new economical entry-level model X3 in the form of the BMW X3 sDrive18d. Powered by a 143hp, 2.0-litre diesel engine, and available with either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox, the new model is the only model to come exclusively with rear-wheel-drive model.

Thanks to an extensive suite of EfficientDynamics technologies, the new BMW X3 sDrive18d emits just 135g/km of CO2 , and has a combined fuel consumption of 55.4mpg, making it the cleanest and most fuel-efficient model in the X3 range. These figures allow the sDrive18d to occupy a Tax Band B.

There is an impressive balance between performance and fuel economy and the 2.0-litre diesel engine developing 143hp, with a peak torque of 360Nm between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm, resulting in the BMW X3 sDrive18d accelerating from zero to 100kms in 9.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 195kms.

The introduction of this new entry-level model sees the engine range for the BMW X3 expand to four diesels variants. The BMW X3 is a compelling proposition whichever powerplant is chosen thanks to its dynamic styling, luxurious quality and its sheer versatility. Folding down the rear seats increases boot space from 550 to 1,600 litres, while the BMW X3 sDrive18d can also be ordered as an option with a trailer coupling offering maximum towing capacity of 2,000kg.

This latest addition to its model line-up gives the BMW X3 everything it needs to build on its history of success. More than 74,000 units of the Sports Activity Vehicle were sold in the first half of 2012, a rise of 38.4 per cent on the same period last year.
