After a major redesign for the 2018 year model, the 2019 BMW X3 is not going to suffer big changes. At least it seems like from today’s viewpoint. Its features and styling are at top level. Also, elegant styling doesn’t require further updates. However, this model might get a hybrid variation. Also, huge changes on the 2018 year model might show that we are getting closer to a new generation of the BMW X3. Well, it is not happening prior to 2020. The 3rd generation will most likely wait for another model to come out of production in 2019. Amongst the things that stay the very 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 details are divided in between discussing future of hybrid X3. For a while, we can hear gossips about the plug-in version. However, these are constantly unlikely and doubtful. Now, when all fans expect to see 2019 BMW X3 in a hybrid variant, there is another possibility. An all-electric model might spoil the look of plug-in X3 and take the show. For a hybrid, BMW prepares to match a xDrive30e engine with an electrical motor. The more powerful version would be if batteries are mated to a xDrive40e. Because case, the crossover is going to be able to produce around 330 hp.
2019 BMW X3 Specs
By the time we hear official information about hybrid and electrical SUV, the 2019 BMW X3 will get a standard petrol unit. For the base model, it is 2.0-l 4-cylinder engine or xDrive30i. It sends power through the 8-speed transmission to all wheels. The AWD is readily available with another drivetrain. However, the M40i model can produce more power thanks to a 3.0-l V-6 turbo engine.
2019 BMW X3 Release Date
With a new model still fresh on the market, German carmaker will have some time to think of further upgrades on its compact crossover. So, chiefs are not going to rush with a launch date of 2019 BMW X3. It is possible that we won’t see its launching in 2018. However, even if that occurs, it can be extremely late. Our company believe it is most likely to occur in 2019 at some huge car program in Europe.
