INSIDETRACK MAY 2012: MORE FEATURES. MORE POWER. MORE EFFICIENCY. THE 2013 X3.

THE NEW X3 xDRIVE28i: FASTER 0 TO 60. SLOWER FULL TO EMPTY.

It sounded like an impossibly tall order: how could BMW improve upon the latest-generation X3? But the engineering wizards in Munich thrive on challenges and now they proudly present the 2013 X3 xDrive28i.

Building on the X3’s already dynamic performance, thisnew model is even more desirable. Now equipped with BMW’s award-winning four-cylinder engine – a 240-hp, 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo – and an 8-speed automatic transmission, its 260 lb-ft of torque launches the X3 from 0-60 in just 6.6 seconds.1 Fuel consumption, however,is decreased considerably, thanks to innovations like the new Auto Start-Stop function.

The drive characteristics of both the X3 xDrive28i and X3 xDrive35i can now be personalized through Driving Dynamics Control. Select COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT+ modes, which change settings for Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), accelerator pedal response and power steering assist. There is also an ECO PRO mode for even greater fuel savings, as displayed in the dash.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – February 16, 2012… BMW of North America announced today a continuing evolution of efficiency, power and technology with the introduction of the new TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine (N20) to the X3 xDrive28i. The new engine replaces the outgoing normally aspirated inline 6-cylinder engine (N52) as the next step in BMW’s EfficientDynamics strategy. It is scheduled for April 2012 production as a 2013 model with delivery to US BMW Centers in May along with the continuing BMW X3 xDrive35i. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Prices, including $895 destination and handling, are $39,395 for the X3 xDrive28i and $44,495 for the X3 xDrive35i. This represents an increase of $1,400 and $900 respectively.

In addition, the updated X3 xDrive28i and the X3 xDrive35i, now in its second year of production will offer new technology never before offered on the X3 by introducing new combinations of package and equipment options – a new Driver Assistance Package option (ZDA) will include Lane Departure Warning; and the optional M Sport Package will add 19” wheels to the X3 xDrive28i. The X3 also has several upgraded standard equipment enhancements as a recipient of 5, 6 and 7 Series technology. The new standard equipment offerings for both models are Auto Start-Stop, and Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO and the Power Tailgate. The 2013 X3 xDrive28i also receives 18” wheels, and chrome tailpipes tips previously standard only on the X3 xDrive35i.

The BMW X3 significantly extends its impact on the segment by establishing even newer standards created by its predecessor. The X3 xDrive28i and X3 xDrive35i builds on the success of the original X3 by incorporating new technology, options and packages that were previously only available on BMW 5, 6, and 7 Series cars. More technology, options and packages for both X3 models will now be available providing more agility, efficiency and comfort in the class segment that the X3 started and defined back in 2004.
