2018 BMW X3: More Compact Crossover Love for Virginia Shoppers

With all due respect to the other models in the BMW lineup, the X3 has experienced a borderline meteoric sales surge. Why? Well, it's due to a variety of factors.

For starters, compact crossovers, especially in the luxury market, have seen sales rise exponentially over the past couple of years. Another factor is that the X3 embodies all the best qualities of a BMW model with the ruggedness and utility of a sport utility vehicle. Many luxury automakers attempt to straddle the line between these attributes, but few do it as well as BMW with the X3.

There's actually even more good news for X3 shoppers. BMW has redesigned the X3 for the 2018 model year. It's now bigger than the previous-generation model without losing one ounce of the nimbleness and agility of its driving dynamics. The increase in dimensions isn't exactly a surprise, as BMW already offers the smaller X1 crossover in the lineup and there are plans to release an all-new X2 model soon.

Curious to know what else is new on the 2018 BMW X3?

The manufacturer also included new 4- and 6-cylinder engine options under the hood of the compact crossover. Each one is turbocharged and delivers the legendary BMW performance you expect along with quality fuel efficiency ratings. The 6-cylinder engine version of the 2018 X3 is known as the M40i and represents the most powerful model in the lineup.

In addition to the M40i, you can also opt for the xDrive30i model. This is the 4-cylinder-powered version of the X3 and is also a great value in its own right. Whichever one ends up being the right choice for you, you can definitely rely on our Virginia BMW dealership to have the model you want.

The Versatile & Luxurious Interior of the 2018 X3

As noted earlier, BMW increased the width and length of the X3 with the 2018 redesign. They didn't waste those extra inches one bit, either. You'll find an incredibly open and spacious cabin with this compact crossover, as well as a surprising amount of cargo space for a vehicle of its size.

Interior materials are of the highest grade, just like you'd expect with any luxury vehicle like BMW. There's also plenty of technology, both infotainment-wise and safety-related. Available features include a Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging device station, and Apple CarPlay.

BMW offers a variety of packages to help equip the 2018 X3 even further, including the Driving Assistance Plus Package. This brings driver-assistance features like Active Cruise Control, Blind Spot Detection, Frontal Collision Warning, City Collision Mitigation, and Active Lane Keeping Assistance to the X3's long list of standard equipment.

The Redesigned Exterior of the 2018 BMW X3

The X3 has been one of the most consistent sellers in the automaker's lineup for a number of years. It had been seven years since the vehicle's last redesign, so the exterior changes to the X3 for the 2018 model year are subtle. Like - really subtle.

In fact, you might not notice a difference between last year's model and the 2018 version. That's all for the good, however, as our X3 shoppers at BMW of Lynchburg have always appreciated the design and style of the X3.
