Even though a BMW X3 M model is certainly not coming with this generation X3 SAV, rendering artists from around the world are playing with the M design language to create a sporty model of the midsize SAV. The current generation X3 went through a design refresh in early 2014 with the reshaping of the front fascia and the connection of headlights to the kidneys.
The compact and premium X3 looks more modern in the facelift and at the same a bit more aggressive on the road.
The rumormills churns out that the third-generation BMW G01 X3 is due out in 2017.
Built under the codename G01, the 2017 BMW X3 will offer an M40i model and a full M-developed X3 M. BMW X3 M40i will be powered by a 3.0 liter inline-six turbocharged engine producing 360 hp, while the X3 M is expected to inherit the S55 3.0 liter engine from the new M3/M4 which outputs 425 horsepower.
