Itís well known that the BMW 3 Series is a brilliant car. The potpourri of sport, luxury and technology blend perfectly to make a desirable and solid car for anyone shopping in its price point. But those who need more practicality and family friendliness will look at the platform-sharing X3 xDrive28i to fill that void.
Fortunately, thereís hardly a better starting point than the 3 Series sport-sedan, and the X3 really proves this point. It feels solid, yet spritely and feels far more capable than its spec sheet would hint at. For 2013 BMW transplanted the 240-hp turbocharged four-cylinder engine out of the 328i and put it into the bigger utility vehicle.
The engine is still packaged with BMWís eight-speed automatic transmission like last yearís model, which does double duty to help keep the engine in its sweet-spot and fuel-consumption low. Yes, the older car made more power, but the new engine helps make more twist; a total 49 extra lb-ft of torque helps the X3 stay exciting. In fact, itís hard to see the need for the more powerful engine in the xDrive35i.
Ahead of its debut in a few weeks time in China, the first photos of the baby X6 have surfaced.
Based on the BMW X3 platform the X4 Concept aims to capitalize on the demand for coupe-styled crossovers, a segment BMW created with the controversial (though surprisingly well received) X6.
While technically a concept, itís really just a thinly veiled version of the production car with some added accents and larger wheels. When it does arrive, expect a selection of engines including a 240 hp turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cyliner as well as a turbo inline-six making 300 hp.
Look for the X4 Concept to make its official debut at the Auto China show in Shanghai on April 21st.
