BMW X3 F25 range to be extended With Specification And Prices With Reviews and pictures images
BMW decided to introduce two more versions for the new BMW X3 F25, two versions which can be also ordered together with the earlier revealed M Sport package. We talk about a petrol and a diesel engine, more exactly the xDrive28i and xDrive30d versions.
The entry level model is offered with diesel power, summoning the impressive 2.0-litre N47 D20 four-cylinder variable geometry turbo diesel to provide propulsion. Outputs are identical to the F10 520d, producing 184hp @ 4,000rpm and a max torque of 380Nm @ 1,750 – 2,750rpm for the xDrive20d variant. BMW claims a century sprint of 8.5 seconds en route to a 210kph v-max.
Alternatively, petrol power can be supplied with the aid of twin-scroll turbocharging and direct-injection by the 2,979cc N55 B30 engine that currently powers the 535i. Powering the xDrive35i, the N55 is rated to produce 306hp @ 5,800rpm and 400Nm @ 1,300rpm. A slightly different set of figures are quoted for the US market however, being 300hp @ 5,800rpm and 300 lb-ft (406Nm ) @ 1,200 – 5,00orpm.
