    About the BMW X3

    The 2023 BMW X3 is up to $5800 more expensive than it was last year, as part of a wider-range price adjustment.

    This means the X3 range now starts at $81,700 before on-road costs for the sDrive20i, and extends to $175,300 before on-road costs for the M Competition.

    There haven’t been any specification changes to the X3 range as part of the 2023 model year price adjustment.

    The current, third-generation BMW X3 was first revealed and went on sale locally in 2017. It received a mid-life facelift last year that brought a revised exterior and interior design.

    BMW sold a total of 4546 examples of the X3 last year, making it the second top-selling medium luxury SUV if you don’t add together the sales of the Mercedes-Benz GLC wagon and GLC Coupe. It was outsold by the Tesla Model Y (8717 sales).

    How it Drives

    Our expert take on BMW X3 drivability?

    The 2023 BMW X3 sDrive20i is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 135kW of power and 300Nm of torque.

    It’s the only rear-wheel drive member of the X3 range, and BMW claims the X3 sDrive20i can do the 0-100km/h sprint in 8.2 seconds.

    The X3 xDrive20d is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel producing 140kW and 400Nm, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of 8.0 seconds.

    The X3 xDrive30i is powered by an uprated 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 185kW and 350Nm, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of 6.3 seconds.

    The X3 xDrive30d is powered by a 3.0-litre inline-six turbo-diesel producing 195kW and 620Nm, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of 5.8 seconds.

    The X3 xDrive30e plug-in hybrid (PHEV) pairs a 135kW/300Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with an 80kW/265Nm electric motor and a 12kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Total system outputs are 215kW and 420Nm, which is good for a claimed 0-100km/h time of 6.1 seconds.

    The X3 M40i is powered by a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six petrol engine producing 285kW and 500Nm, with a claimed 0-100km/h time of 4.8 seconds.

    Finally, the X3 M Competition is powered by an uprated 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six petrol engine producing 375kW and 650Nm, good for a 0-100km/h time of 3.8 seconds.

    All models use an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.
