2011 BMW X3 M Sports Package at the Paris Motor Show
The latest X3 will be exhibited at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, but with M Sport package. The crossover also features Auto Start-Stop function combined with a six-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The ///M Sport package includes a front bumper, new side skirts, a rear bumper with diffuser, sports exhaust system and rear roof spoiler.
The interior boasts a new M sports steering wheel with paddle shifters, new sports seats and aluminum pedals.
The package is complete by the new M wheels. 2011 BMW X3 is offered with 2.0d delivering 184hp at 4000RPM and 380Nm at just 1750RPM. The acceleration is satisfying – 0 to 100 km/h in 8.5 seconds and a top speed of 210 km/h. Furthermore, the engine uses just 5.6l per 100km./ (50mpg) and emits 149 g/km.
The top version is xDrive35i with the famous twin-turbo petrol engine delivering 306hp and 400Nm at 1300RPM. The other astonishing thing, besides the massive power is the fuel consumption – 8.8l per 100km (32mpg), which is nothing for three hundred horsepowers.
The previous X3 had huge success and there is no doubt that this one will have it, too.
