BMW India have removed the petrol variants of the X3 from their website. The carmaker will soon launch the X3 M40i, which is a sportier version of the regular X3. Read on to know more details about the 2023 BMW X3.


BMW X3 Petrol Variants Discontinued

Last month, BMW launched new diesel variants of the X3 — the xDrive 20d xLine and xDrive 20d M Sport. Now, BMW have discontinued the petrol variants of the X3 SUV. Thus, the X3 is currently only available with a 2.0L turbo diesel engine in xLine and M Sport variants. The prices of the BMW X3 now start from Rs. 67.90 lake and go up to Rs. 69.90 lakh (ex-showroom).

The reason behind the discontinuation of the petrol variants of the X3 is unknown. It could be BMW’s tactic to motivate prospective buyers of the X3 petrol to shell out extra and get the upcoming X3 M40i. BMW may reintroduce the regular petrol variants of the X3 after the launch of the X3 M40i.
