All-wheel drive, or xDrive in BMW parlance, is now standard, while a diesel engine option is no longer on the table in the US, where the vehicle is produced. In this short video, you can see how well the xDrive system works, how it deals with the split of touque. Despite mirroring the displacement of the outgoing X3’s gas-sipping engines, the 2018 X3’s two engines are entirely new to this model line, though they are shared with other BMW products such as the 3-series and the 5-series. The engines are both more powerful and torquier than their predecessors, with xDrive30i models making 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque—a gain of 8 hp over the old inline-four (but 2 fewer lb-ft). More impressive is the M40i’s output: 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque, increases of 55 ponies and 69 lb-ft. Both engines pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters; the M40i adds a launch-control function.

The optional Parking Assistant Plus in the new BMW X3 2017/2018 makes parking and manoeuvring the vehicle easier. It features Surround View including Top View, Remote 3D View and the Parking Assistant with linear guidance, which parks the vehicle parallel or perpendicular to the lane completely automatically. The system works by measuring potential spaces while driving past them at a low speed.
The vehicle tested here is no mere entry base level crossover; this is the M40i performance edition which marks the marks the first M Performance version of an X3. New for 2018 is the 3rd generation luxury crossover with prices ranging from $42,650 for the base xDrive30i model up to $54,500 for the M40i model seen here. There are 2 engine options available on the 2018 BMW X3 with the first being a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that makes 248 horsepower and the second engine equipped on the M40i model is a 3.0 liter turbocharged 6-cylinder that makes 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy ratings check in at 20 MPG in the city and 27 MPG on the highway. The real magic is in the way it drives. The BMW M40i is surprisingly good. BMW engineers have tweaked and refined the chassis, suspension, and steering.
