German luxury automaker BMW has confirmed the launch date for the 2018 X3 in the country. The next-gen of the luxurious SUV by BMW has been confirmed for the launch on 19th April this year. The BMW X3 has been one of the best-selling SUVs in the product portfolio of BMW that was first launched in 2003 and has sold over 1.5 million units in the last 14 years across two generations.
Under the hood, the BMW X3 is offered with five engine options, globally but for India it is expected to be offered only with two engine options, the xDrive20d and xDrive30i, initially. While the xDrive20d is powered by a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo diesel that is rated at 188 bhp of maximum power and 400 Nm of peak torque, the xDrive30i will get a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol unit that develops 248 bhp power and 350 Nm of torque. The transmission duties will be carried out by an eight-speed automatic gearbox with standard all-wheel drive system.
