Just three years after its official launch and the second-generation BMW X3 is preparing for a mild refresh that will debut in June of this year. The F25 LCI will bring subtle exterior and interior updates, similar to the F10 5 Series LCI.

The spy photos from Arjeplog show changes to the front apron and the inner workings of the headlights. The exterior mirrors are also getting the built-in side indicators like other newer BMW models.

The kidney grille appears to remain unchanged.

Of course, the BMW X3 facelift will bring interior changes that will maintains its status of a premium midsize SUV. So we expect to see the new BMW iDrive Touch Controller as well as the latest generation iDrive Navigation System with 3D display.

For the full year 2012, BMW X3 sold to 149,853 customers worldwide and increased year-over-year by 27.1 percent. BMW aims to sell more than 150,000 units in 2013.

    From what I have seen from other sources, the new idrive is supposed to roll out for the X3 April 2013 with the official start of build of the 2014 model. http://x3.xbimmers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=716978

    It doesn’t make much sense that the 2014 model is already available for order and supposed to start being built April 1st and then they would do a facelift 2 months later???

    Other sites are reporting the LCI as a 2015 model likely to debut in a year.
