BMW X3 Superior Engine Performance

The BMW X3 has a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine supplies the sDrive30i and xDrive30i with 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. This is also combined with the 8-speed STEPTRONIC Automatic Transmission with Sport and Manual shift modes. And along with Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO, COMFORT, and SPORT modes, this SUV is exceptionally smooth, and fun to drive.

The M40i generates even more power with 355 horsepower and 365 lb-ft of torque that is supplied by the 3.0L M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine.

 The 2019 BMW X3 is also equipped with Dynamic Stability Control, which can adjust the engine power and apply brakes to each individual wheel to keep things under control at all times. And the xDrive Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System, that comes standard with the xDrive30i and M40i, provides responsive handling and adequate traction during all driving conditions.
