New 2018 BMW X3 Series Redesign and Release Date
As a favorite car, the new 2018 BMW X3 will be the third generation, and it will complete the battle on the market in the 2018 season. It is a mid-size crossover SUV that is quite attractive especially for its practicality and high-quality design. Many people highlight it as their option because of the luxurious cabin design and strong performance. Besides, it also has excellent engine efficiency and responsive handling. This new generation will be much better compared to the previous models.
2018 BMW X3 is expected to come out with a lighter design. The styling cues can be sharper than the predecessor. With the support of latest BMW technology, there is a big sign that the company wants to use a new platform. It has new lightweight and scalable CLAR-architecture. By using this platform, it means that the car has the same platform as the 2016 7-Series. It will be the first SUV that is designed with this structure, and the platform will be used for the X5 and X7 too. The new platform is good to cut the current weight so that it can be 220 lbs lighter than before. Based on the prototype spotted recently, it has an evolutionary look with the sharper-sculpted design. It will carry over the split kidney grille design, but it seems wider. The headlights are slender with the LED accents to bracket the grille, and the larger intakes will be added to the front bumper. It has a sharp profile with the rising character line and flared wheel arches. The lower roofline is good to give a sportier look like the final touch.
