The upcoming BMW G01 X3 was spotted in Germany earlier this week, giving us yet another preview of what’s to come in June of this year. Over the last few months, a series of X3 test mules were spotted around the world, with BMW engineers behind the wheel testing its capabilities and adaptability to weather conditions.

As seen here, the G01 X3 will maintain its compact proportions and stocky look, which will clearly differentiate it from the rest of X family. The front design was adjusted due to the new pedestrian safety regulations and now sits a little more upright than the outgoing model. The rear quarter features a slightly lower roofline than the current model and a one-piece tailgate.

The new BMW X3 will be longer, wider and roomier on the inside, while also being lighter and stiffer. It will also come with new engine options, ranging from the new B48 2.0 liter turbo-four to the B58 3.0 liter turbo inline-six. The latter will power the upcoming X3 M40i variant.

Along with a new exterior design and a more premium cabin, high-tech and safety features, and advanced telematics, are poised to make the G01 X3 another big seller for the Bavarians.
