The BMW X3 will soon receive a mild facelift. Of course, the X3 M is not skipped. At the Nürburgring, our spy photographer saw the prototype tear past. Don’t expect big changes; the infamous grille of the new M3 and M4, for example, is not present.
The prototype of the X3 is still quite well packaged, but details such as the mirrors and the four tailpipes clearly indicate that this is the X3 M. The first contours of the facelift are visible through the camouflage. At the front, the headlights seem to be sharper, with modified LED units in them. The shape of the grille seems to be fairly unchanged, its interpretation is likely to resemble that of the current X5. No M3-like grille for the X3. At the rear, new LED lighting also shines through the packaging, but the design of the rear lights appears unchanged. Also from a motor point of view, probably little or nothing changes. Not that the current X3 M Competition with 510 hp was a bit too short, by the way.
BMW is expected to pull the curtain off the facelifted X3 next year. The current generation has been around since 2017. In addition to the slightly modified exterior, the interior is completely up-to-date. The X3 will probably also have Live Cockpit Professional, BMW’s digital instrumentation, in line with its family members. In addition, new leathers and moldings will be available again, according to good practice for facelifts. What all this will look like exactly will follow later.
