The new BMW X3 M debuted in February last year and has finally reached our shores. Recently, the SUV was snapped getting tested on the streets of Mumbai. We expect BMW X3 M to launch in India in the second-half of this year. BMW will offer the new SUV in two different variants, namely- Standard and Competition. Both the trims can be recognized from the colour shade of the kidney grille frame. The entry-level X3 M will feature a chrome frame, while the top-spec Competition trim will employ the same grill in gloss black colour.

The frame of the SUV is under camouflage, but the 20-inch alloy wheels equipped on the standard sub-variant are visible in the photograph we have above. The X3 M Competition, on the other hand, will be offered with 21-inch units as standard. The BMW X3 M and X3 M Competition share components like BMW’s conventional kidney grille with black double bars, aerodynamically-optimized side mirrors, twin tailpipes on each side and aerodynamically-optimized apron upfront.

Moreover, both the models share some interior components, like sports seats, knee pads on the side of the centre console, redesigned gear selector lever, instrument console, steering wheel and aluminium carbon structure. The top-spec BMW X3 M competition also features piano black side mirror caps, gloss black grille, tailgate spoiler, specially designed door sill plates and M Sport exhaust system. The SUV derives power from a 3.0-litre, twin-turbo inline six-cylinder petrol mill that produces 480 PS (standard)/510 PS (Competition) of maximum power output and 600 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission along with an all-wheel-drive-system. One can expect the upcoming SUV to be priced between Rs 1.2-1.5 crores (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
