The X3 has four different drivetrains available to choose. The base engine is a V4 with a turbo that is rated at 248 horsepower. It has plenty of power and a slick automatic transmission so that many customers will be happy with it. The second engine is a V4 plug-in hybrid model that gets 288 horsepower. It is the only hybrid available, and the 40 hp power boost gets it into the sporty zone of road feel. The third engine is a turbo V6 with 382 horsepower, which makes a significant difference to the acceleration. The top engine is a twin-turbo V6 that reaches 473 horsepower, and it feels like a drag racer. The smaller engines get better fuel economy, while the most efficient drivetrain is the hybrid. It has steady and stable handling at any speed, both for the steering and the brakes, so it always feels agile and under control. The X3 also has a smooth, cushioned ride.


The BMW X3 has four trim levels for Culver City drivers to choose from, and each one corresponds to one of the four engines as well as their own distinct feature set. The base trim is the xDrive30i. It has a ten-inch touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, onboard navigation, Wi-Fi, synthetic leather seating, active driving assist features, and more, plus a long list of optional add-ons like genuine leather, wireless charging pads, seating upgrades, sound system upgrades, more tech and driver assistance, and all-wheel drive. The second trim, the xDrive30e, uses the hybrid drivetrain but otherwise is the same as the base trim. The third trim is the M40i. It has the same options list but uses the 382-horsepower engine with a range of upgrades for the suspension, brakes, and wheels, plus upgraded seating and a moonroof. The top trim is the M. The M has the top engine, the performance upgrades, and a new package of additional performance changes that boost horsepower to 503.

Configuring the X3 is easy because it all comes down to the engine you want. The trims all have a good standard list of features and plenty of options to pick and choose what you want and what fits your budget. It is a great way to build your ideal SUV and make it work with your needs and preferences. Keep in mind that the larger engines use more gas and are less efficient.
