2010 BMW X3 caught alongside current model Spy Photos  

0 评论

The latest spy images show a car with completely finished headlights and tail lights, slightly expanded dimensions for added interior space and more X5-like styling. Bringing in the X5 resemblance could also be a calculated move to help some of the upcoming X5 M model's cachet rub off on the smaller sibling.

In addition to the revamped exterior, a full array of gadgets and features are expected to be available for the X3 to help keep its edge against Audi and Mercedes. It is even possible that BMW could make the night-vision heads-up display currently found in the X6 and other models available on the X3. Bi-xenon lights with around-corner capability and new seats that feature massage functions and ventilation are also expected for the new model.

Engines will remain largely the same, with a choice of four diesels ranging from 177hp (132kW) to 299hp (223kW), and most markets getting the option of two petrol engines rated at 231hp (172kW) and 306hp (228kW). A new hybrid model is also tipped to be on the table, though specifications are still forthcoming.

Spied alongside the current model, we can clearly see that two vehicles will be very similar bar a few minor styling changes. The new 2010 model will sport a rounder overall appearance and its roof profile will be slightly shorter.

Joining the next-generation X3 at the end of the decade will be a second smaller X1 SUV based on the recently revealed Concept X1, which you can see testing in our previous spy shot story by clicking here.
