The third generation BMW X3 is just around the corner. When it arrives in 2017, the G01 BMW X3 will bring a new design language that will eventually be implemented across the BMW family.
These renderings by AutoBild illustrate a muscular X3 with aggressive lines on the front fascia, more angular shapes and a new design of the headlights. This X3 features sleeker lights which end in a 3D shaped chrome outer edge of the kidneys. The lower fascia features large and sporty air intakes. The front design was adjusted due to the new pedestrian safety regulations and now sits a little straighter than before.
The rear quarter shows a more aggressive body with a slightly lower roofline and it will retain the one-piece tailgate.
The new, rear-wheel drive flexible modular system offers more interior space and a redesigned seating system also ensures higher variability and greater comfort. Sources say the G01 X3 is about 100 kg lighter than the F25 X3.
For the first time, BMW will offer an extended wheelbase for the X3, likely catering to markets like China.
