After a significant redesign for the 2018 year model, the 2019 BMW X3 is not going to suffer big changes. At least it looks like from today’s viewpoint. Its features and styling are at top level. Likewise, luxurious styling does not need further updates. However, this model might get a hybrid variation. Also, huge changes on the 2018 year model could suggest that we are getting closer to a brand-new generation of the BMW X3. Well, it is not happening before 2020. The third generation will most likely wait on another model to come out of production in 2019. Amongst the important things that remain the exact same are rivals. A compact crossover will face Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC in the battle for more buyers.
2019 BMW X3 Hybrid
Rumors and details are split in between discussing future of hybrid X3. For a while, we can hear gossips about the plug-in version. However, these are always unlikely and doubtful. Now, when all fans anticipate to see 2019 BMW X3 in a hybrid variation, there is another possibility. An all-electric model could spoil the look of plug-in X3 and steal the show. For a hybrid, BMW plans to match a xDrive30e engine with an electrical motor. The more powerful variation would be if batteries are mated to a xDrive40e. Because case, the crossover is going to be able to produce around 330 hp.
2019 BMW X3 Specs
By the time we hear main info about hybrid and electrical SUV, the 2019 BMW X3 will get a basic gas unit. For the base model, it is 2.0-l 4-cylinder engine or xDrive30i. It sends power through the 8-speed transmission to all wheels. The AWD is offered with another drivetrain. However, the M40i model can produce more power thanks to a 3.0-l V-6 turbo engine.
2019 BMW X3 Release Date
With a brand-new model still fresh on the market, German carmaker will have some time to think about more upgrades on its compact crossover. So, chiefs are not going to hurry with a launch date of 2019 BMW X3. It is probable that we won’t see its launching in 2018. However, even if that occurs, it can be really late. We believe it is most likely to take place in 2019 at some big car show in Europe.
