After a major redesign for the 2018 year model, the 2019 BMW X3 is not going to suffer huge changes. A minimum of it looks like from today’s perspective. Its features and styling are at top level. Also, luxurious styling doesn’t need further updates. Nevertheless, this model could get a hybrid version. Also, big changes on the 2018 year model might show that we are getting closer to a brand-new generation of the BMW X3. Well, it is not occurring before 2020. The 3rd generation will probably wait for another model to come out of production in 2019. Among the things that remain the exact same are competitors. A compact crossover will deal with Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC in the fight for more purchasers.
2019 BMW X3 Hybrid
Reports and information are divided in between talking about future of hybrid X3. For a while, we can hear chatters about the plug-in version. However, these are constantly unlikely and questionable. Now, when all fans expect to see 2019 BMW X3 in a hybrid version, there is another possibility. An all-electric model could ruin the look of plug-in X3 and steal the show. For a hybrid, BMW prepares to combine a xDrive30e engine with an electrical motor. The more effective variation would be if batteries are mated to a xDrive40e. In that case, the crossover is going to have the ability to produce around 330 hp.
2019 BMW X3 Specs
By the time we hear official information about hybrid and electric SUV, the 2019 BMW X3 will get a standard gas system. For the base model, it is 2.0-l 4-cylinder engine or xDrive30i. It sends out power through the 8-speed transmission to all wheels. The AWD is offered with another drivetrain. Nevertheless, the M40i model can produce more power thanks to a 3.0-l V-6 turbo engine.
2019 BMW X3 Release Date
With a brand-new model still fresh on the marketplace, German carmaker will have some time to consider additional upgrades on its compact crossover. So, chiefs are not going to rush with a launch date of 2019 BMW X3. It is likely that we will not see its launching in 2018. Nevertheless, even if that takes place, it can be extremely late. We believe it is most likely to take place in 2019 at some huge car program in Europe.
