2022 BMW X3 Exterior

The all-new BMW X3 has been launched in the international markets. It is the fourth generation of BMW's popular SUV. While the third generation was based on the X5, this one has been influenced by its larger sibling, the X6. The German automaker has kept the tradition alive in designing a premium car blended with luxury, performance, and agility.

What's new for The 2022 BMW X3?

A complete redesign for the 2022 BMW X3 brings fresh styling, a more extensive interior, and more power. The new X3 is about 2 inches longer than the outgoing model, and it has 1.2 inches more wheelbase length. The 2022 X3 will be built alongside the 4 Series at BMW's plant in South Carolina.

Trims & Features

The 2022 BMW X3 is a compact luxury SUV with stellar performance, a spacious cabin, and easy-to-use infotainment features. It's available in three trims: sDrive30i, xDrive30i, and M40i. The sDrive30i and xDrive30i come standard with rear-wheel drive (RWD), while the other two are standard all-wheel drive (AWD). There are a few notable differences across the trims. The main one is that the sDrive30i doesn't come with AWD, which is a must-have for certain drivers.

Horsepower

The 2.0-liter turbo-four returns with a bump in power to 248 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. BMW estimates that the all-wheel drive model will hit 60 mph in 6.0 seconds flat, about two tenths quicker than before. The rear-drive sDrive30i does the same deed in 5.8 seconds. Anyone with a lead foot will want to look at the M40i, which has a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six making 382 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. That's good for a 4.6-second run to 60 mph with all-wheel drive and 4.4 seconds with rear-drive only (BMW claims).

Safety

The 2022 BMW X3 is the newest member of a generation that debuted in 2018. The Insurance Institute has only tested it for Highway Safety, but that's enough to get us started.

The IIHS rates crash-tested vehicles on a scale of Poor, Marginal, Acceptable, and Good. The 2022 X3 earns Good ratings in all six crashworthiness categories, including headlight performance (Good is the highest possible score). It also earns a Superior rating for its ability to avoid frontal crashes thanks to forward collision avoidance technologies (Superior is the highest possible rating). The X3 comes standard with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Those are enough to achieve an advanced rating for front crash prevention (the highest possible rating).
