Performance Specifications

The BMW X3 offers two powerful engine options, starting with a standard 2.0L inline 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine. This standard engine, which works alongside an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission, makes a respectable 258 lb-ft of torque and 248 horsepower.

You’ll also get plenty of efficiency with this power thanks to the X3’s standard Auto Start-Stop function.

The X3 also offers two drivetrain options for you choose from. Stick with the standard rear-wheel drivetrain or upgrade to the available xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system. This available system enhances your traction on the road, no matter what kind of conditions you’re driving in.

Spacious & Luxurious Interior

The 2019 BMW X3’s interior sports five spacious seats and plenty of cargo room, even when you leave all five seats in place. Regardless of its status as a compact SUV, this model offers more than enough wiggle room for every passenger in the X3 with these spacious passenger area dimensions:

With this kind of space, you’ll be able to pack in a weekend’s worth of camping supplies, the kids’ sports equipment, full-size suitcases, and more.

On top of all of this space, you’ll also have quite a few comfort features to take advantage of. This model is standardly equipped with 10-way power-adjustable front sports seats that can also be heated or swapped out for premium 14-way power-adjustable front seats.

You’ll also have an automatic 3-zone climate control system, which allows you to set three different temperatures to keep everyone comfortable, and a heated steering wheel to keep you hands nice and warm during the winter months.

Top-of-the-Line Technology

The interior of the 2019 BMW X3 is packed with all kinds of handy technology features. Standardly, you’ll have an iDrive infotainment system with a wide display and plenty of helpful features. For starters, you’ll get a BMW Navigation Professional system that provides turn-by-turn directions and advanced real-time traffic information.

This system also offers Bluetooth®, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, smartphone app integration, and even real-time weather updates. With split-screen capability, you’ll be able to access three of these features at a time so you’re always in the loop.

Either use the touchscreen to navigate through the iDrive infotainment system or available Gesture Control. Gesture Control uses state-of-the-art sonar technology to pick up on your pre-selected hand gestures and perform selected functions, including rejecting phone calls and changing the audio volume.

The X3 also offers a wireless charging pad to keep all your devices juiced up for when you reach your destination as well as an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. Use this hotspot to stay connected and in the loop, no matter where you’re heading.
