It’s facelift time for the BMW X3. And even well before the hour since he unexpectedly unveils his new design.
New BMW X3 2021 – A few weeks before its official revelation, Bavarian SUV facelift reveals itself on social networks. An unexpected lifting of the veil, outside the official framework, which provides information on the new plastic of the X3, as it prepares to begin its second part of career.
It has been almost 4 years sincecurrent generation of BMW X3, competitor of Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC, travels our roads. It was time for him to refresh his face to stay in the game, while his rival with the 4 rings has just benefited from a facelift, and a few months before the introduction of a brand new album badged by the Star.
Earlier than expected
With all due respect to the communicators of the German manufacturer, the whole of the new facies of the BMW X3 is revealed in broad daylight, withoutno camouflage do not disturb the reading of this revised and corrected design. If the shape of the cover and the main optics remains unchanged, the look evolves via a new graphic design of light signatures, while the double bean extends vertically.
This new grille is not completely unknown to us since it takes the outline of the one inaugurated by the BMW iX3, the 100% electric variant, except that the thermal and hybrid range renews a traditional grid. More spectacular are the changes to the shields. For now, the photos show only one type of new bumper, but we can bet that they will stand out, depending on the finishes.
More opulent in detail
A new bow that seems to have abandoned raw plastics, generally dear to backpackers of this type, in favor ofblack lacquered elements, when the underbody and wheel arch protections generalize the body-color tint. On the flanks, new rim designs are emerging, when the stern undergoes a similar treatment at the front of the vehicle, in terms of the choice of materials and colors.
The lights darken and restyl their light signature, thicker than before, although the shape of these optics does not move. We especially note the arrival ofvertical air extractors, a priori fictitious, on either side of the base of the tailgate, thus relegating the reflectors at the diffuser.
New BMW X3 price
On board, few changes are expected, as well as under the hood. But last surprises are always possible. To find out, we will have to wait until the campaign of official communication, expected by the summer. Anyway, the prices will experience a slight increase to start beyond 46,000 €, according to our estimate.
