The MY2017 X3 starts production this month and this is the last year of production for the current generation F25 X3 before the G01 replaces it. For the last year of production BMW has made a series of changes, one of them is the addition of Chestnut Bronze Metallic which replaces the Sparkling Brown Metallic.

The 2017 BMW F25 X3 starts at $38,950 for the X3 sDrive28i, the X3 xDrive28i sells for $40,950, X3 xDrive28d $42,50 and the top model, the X3 xDrive35i is priced at $47,650.


Other updates to the MY2017 X3s include an upgraded navigation system with iDrive 5.0, Wireless Charging and WiFi Hotspot.

A Chestnut Bronze Metallic BMW X3 was spotted in Spartanburg showing the beautiful brown color in all its glory.


The next-generation G01 X3 will begin its production cycle in August 2017 and will arrive at dealers late that year and early 2018. When it arrives in 2017, the G01 BMW X3 will bring a new design language that will eventually be implemented across the BMW family.
