The third generation BMW X3 has been launched in India at Rs 49.99 lakhs (All-India ex-showroom). This car was unveiled for India at the 2018 Auto Expo and is being offered across two variants - Expedition and Luxury Line, and both the variants share the two-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine.

The design for this third generation model is an evolutionary one where BMW has retained the essence of the X3 range, but updated some of the elements to give the car a new look and also to bring it into their latest design scheme.

Highlights of this third generation model include a larger kidney grille, lower roof line and full LED headlamps with a curved design as compared to the sharp look of the previous model. The car also moves to a new platform which allowed it to shed 55kgs over its predecessor.

It´s standard BMW fare inside the cabin and you get all the goodies and toys that one would expect from BMWs or even cars in this segment. Some of these include full digital instrument cluster, three-zone climate control, powered tail gate, Sat-Nav, ambient lighting and touchscreen for the iDrive system.

The BMW X3 in India is powered by a two-litre, four-cylinder diesel engine that generates 187bhp of power and 400Nm of torque at 1,750-2,500rpm. Mated to an eight-speed Steptronic transmission, the car accelerates from 0-100kmph in just eight seconds. .

It takes on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Volvo XC60, Jaguar E-Pace, Audi Q5 and the Lexus NX. These are mid-size SUVs in similar price ranges and have been traditional rivals for a long time.

Prices for the BMW X3 (ex-showroom, Delhi) –

BMW X3 xDrive 20d Expedition – Rs 49.99 lakhs

BMW X3 xDrive 20d Luxury Line – Rs 56.70 lakhs
