Second generation BMW X3 made its world debut today at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Along with the “standard” model, BMW also introduced, early in the game, the M Sport package designed exclusively for the X3.
The M package was developed by the M division and it is due to be released in Spring of 2011. The package includes chassis, aerodynamics, exterior and interior components that allow for further optimization of the dynamics of the new BMW X3 as well as enhancing its visuals.
The range of features includes the M aerodynamics package, chromed exhaust tailpipes and BMW Individual High Gloss Shadow Line for the side window surrounds and roof railing.
The front, side and rear body components of the M aerodynamics package come in body colour, and the inlay in the rear apron is painted in Dark Shadow metallic. Sports suspension tuning and 18-inch M light-alloy wheels, along with Performance Control for the standard-fitted xDrive all-wheel-drive system, boost the dynamic potential of the Sports Activity Vehicle.
In the new BMW X3 xDrive35i they are complemented by a sports automatic transmission featuring steering wheel shift paddles and variable sports steering including Servotronic.
As an option, 19-inch M light-alloy wheels are also available with differently sized front and rear tyres, while the accessories range also offers 20-inch M light-alloy wheels with different front and rear tyres.
