Introducing the BMW X3 M Competition
Blend together the off-road capabilities of a BMW X3, take performance and power from the iconic BMW M division and you are left with a properly impressive performance SUV. Introducing the thrilling BMW X3 M Competition.
The distinctive SUV looks are sharper than ever thanks to BMW M enhancements, and it has all of the practicality, space and comfort provided by the regular X3, only with the levels of power and performance heightened beyond all expectation.
The TwinPower Turbo 3.0-litre petrol engine produces north of 500 bhp, allowing the xDrive all-wheel drive system to power the X3 M Competition to 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds.
Already a handsome SUV, the BMW X3 has never struggled in the looks department. However, when BMW M were allowed to put their mark on this popular X Series SUV, the vehicle's dynamic nature gets dramatically enhanced, along with the iconic M details and design.
The well-known kidney grilles are gloss black, along with more gloss black detailing on the bumper, side panels and trim around the window for a more sinister motorsport look and feel.
21-inch M light alloy wheels give the X3 M Competition a more purposeful stance, allowing you to see the large blue M brakes that sit behind. Quad exhaust tailpipes and a lower stance ensure onlookers realise this is not just your everyday SUV.
Technology and Safety
Such a clean and dynamic motorsport-inspired look could have you thinking that the interior is a stripped out affair. But fear not, the X3 M Competition features true comfort, state-of-the-art technology and premium materials.
More motorsport-inspired touches such as the bucket style seats are perfectly complemented with comfort enhancements, along with a stunning two-tone finish to ensure the interior is just as handsome as the exterior.
High-definition, clear instruments, along with a sharp infotainment screen and beautifully crafted switchgear ensure the X3 M Competition invites the driver to experience fine comfort, with enhanced sportiness and perfect ergonomics.
Engine and Performance
Following on from other legendary BMW M cars, the X3 M Competition SUV features true M Power performance, only in a more unfamiliar SUV package. This is thanks to an M TwinPower (two turbochargers) turbo 3-litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine with a colossal 510hp, along with 600NM of torque.
This ensures the BMW X3 M Competition can complete the 0-62mph sprint in just 4.1 seconds, making it one of the fastest medium-sized SUVs available.
This blistering performance enables this practical, sports utility vehicle to be able to outrun many sports and performance cars. This is a M Power in a different, but equally as impressive package.
