10 Dec 2021

BMW Asia, Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos today announced the availability of the new BMW X3 and BMW X4. For the second phase of the model cycle, BMW has refreshed its successful Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) BMW and the Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) BMW with a new look, improved equipment and a range structure which has been optimised for customers. The redesigned front end and revised rear section lend even clearer emphasis to the robust off-road look and sporty appearance of the third-generation BMW X3. Its coupé counterpart, the second-generation BMW X4, adopts the new front end, adds its own accentuation with the exclusive BMW mesh kidney grille and offers a particularly dynamic rear end. The refresh is rounded off with a modern interior with new equipment features and updated infotainment. BMW M GmbH has also upgraded the M models of the BMW X3 and BMW X4 at the same time.

Modern drive technology and a clearer product structure.

The introduction of mild hybrid technology with a 48-volt-starter generator ensures a broad drive portfolio at the cutting edge of technology. These include the new BMW X3 xDrive30e and, at the top of the range, high-performance models from BMW M GmbH. In Singapore, the new BMW X3 and BMW X4 are fitted with the all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive as standard. A new range structure ensures a greater focus on sportiness and “X-ness” as well as enhanced clarity through deliberate reduction. The M Sport package and the familiar M variants are available as an alternative to the standard equipment enriched with high-quality X elements. The new BMW X3 and BMW X4 are produced at the Spartanburg plant in the USA.

New BMW X3 with classic X elements and sporty genes.

The new BMW X3 has a more modern appearance that conveys a more powerful presence, with design changes to the front and rear and an emphasis on classic X-elements. The BMW kidney grille and headlights have been redesigned along with the front apron and rear bumper, while new graphics have been applied to the rear lights. High-quality X elements such as underbody protection and specific side skirts in the style of the previous X Line are already standard. The sporty genes of the SAV are underlined by the M Sport package and the new BMW X3 M40i.

New BMW kidney grille and flatter headlights.

With the redesigned BMW kidney grille, headlights that are around ten millimetres flatter and the new front apron, the new BMW X3 looks almost like a new vehicle. More strikingly shaped, especially in the upper area, the BMW kidney grille is larger than before and now comprises a single-piece frame. A black bar in which the iCam is positioned if fitted ensures visual separation of the grille. The front headlights feature adaptive LED headlights with Matrix function, where the adverse weather light takes on the function of the previously separate fog lights while the BMW Laser Light with a range of up to 650 metres is now also available as an optional extra.

Front apron and rear apron redesigned.

Below the headlights, vertical air intakes arranged in a triangular interpretation frame the front bumper. In the new front apron, taut and amply-sized surfaces in body colour and the robust underbody protection reinforce the presence and high-quality aura of the SAV. The new BMW X3 xDrive30e with plug-in hybrid drive also bears an “electrified by i” emblem on the front wing, while an additional blue ring adorns all BMW logos on this engine version, including those on the wheel hub covers. The rear section of the new BMW X3 offers greater clarity as a result of various measures. A black border gives the full LED rear lights a more precise appearance, while the narrower light graphic now includes a three-dimensionally modelled pincer contour and

horizontal turn signals integrated in filigree style. The emphasis on horizontal lines, for example in the concave area at the lower end of the tailgate, contributes to the tidy impression of the rear. The newly designed and elaborately painted underbody protection provides a powerful finish to the road. The new, flush-fitting free-form tailpipe trims are larger and sportier, conveying a more powerful presence.

M Sport package with specific exterior details.

The M Sport package gives the new BMW X3 a sportier orientation. The specific front apron features significantly larger air inlets and inserts finished in high-gloss black, as well as more pronounced air curtains. The window graphics, roof rails and BMW kidney frame and bars are optionally available in high-gloss black. The sportier rear bumper includes a more striking diffuser finished in Dark Shadow along with two additional side air-curtain-panels in high-gloss black. The standard trim includes the new 19-inch Y-Spoke 887M alloy wheel in Midnight Grey Bicolor with 245/50 R19 tyres. Additional wheels in 20 inches (standard on the new BMW X3 xDrive30i M Sport) and 21 inches (standard on the new BMW X3 M40i) are available as an option, as well as the M Sport brake with blue or red brake calipers.

Further M insignia in the M Performance cars.

Further visual differentiation is offered by the new BMW X3 M40i, which shows its affiliation to the BMW M GmbH portfolio with a specific BMW M kidney. In addition to a chrome frame, it bears the typical M double grille bars in high-gloss black and with an M logo. While the same aprons as in the M Sport package are to be found at the front and rear, the aerodynamically optimised M exterior mirrors in high-gloss black, the free-form tailpipe trims in black chrome and the striking “Two Teeth” design ensure a distinctive look. The new BMW X3 M40i is fitted as standard with 21-inch M light alloy wheels double-spoke 718M in Bicolour with the mixed tyres 245/45 R21 at the front and 275/40 R21 at the rear.

BMW mesh kidney grille as an exclusive distinguishing feature of the new BMW X4.

The new BMW X4 adopts the new front end of the new BMW X3, but adds an exclusive distinguishing feature in the form of the mesh kidney familiar from other sporty BMW models. Just like the new BMW X3, the adaptive LED headlights with Matrix function are also standard, while the BMW Laser Light, which is particularly light-intensive and has a long range, is also available as an option for the new BMW X4. Featuring flat full LED rear lights that emphasise the vehicle width and protrude strikingly from the vehicle body in their three-dimensional design, the rear section now has an even more clear-cut shape in the new BMW X4 revision. The new rear apron has a tidier appearance, with an increased proportion of painted surface and reflectors now placed vertically and lower in the bumper. The wide free-form tailpipe trims echo the horizontal lines of the upper section.

M Sport package with striking rear apron in the new BMW X4.

In M Sport guise, the frame and inserts of the new BMW X4’s kidney grille can be painted in high-gloss black on request. In addition, the car comes with a new rear apron with a wide, offset insert in the shape of an anvil. Like the side air-curtain-panels, this is finished in high-gloss black and gives a powerful overall impression that is distinctly road-oriented. As with the new BMW X3, the M Sport package includes the new 19-inch alloy wheel Y-Spoke 887M in Midnight Grey Bicolor with 245/50 R19 tyres as standard. Additional 20-inch (standard on the new BMW X4 xDrive30i M Sport) and 21-inch wheels (standard on the new BMW X4 M40i) and the M Sport brake are available as options.

BMW M insignia for the new BMW X4 M40i.

The new BMW X4 M40i is based on the appearance and standard equipment of the corresponding BMW X3 model and bears typical BMW M insignia such as the specific BMW M kidney with chrome frame, double kidney bars in high-gloss black and M logo as well as the aerodynamically optimised M exterior mirrors in high-gloss black. The rear apron with its anvil-shaped insert is complemented by air curtain trim in high-gloss black. Analogous to the new BMW X3 M40i are the free-form tailpipe trims in black chrome with the two "teeth" and the tyres.

11 paint finishes for the new BMW X3 and one exclusively for the new BMW X4.

Following the redesign of the BMW X3, BMW offers a total of 11 paint finishes in the regular range. The metallic paint finish Skyscraper Grey is new, and as is M Brooklyn Grey metallic from the M Sport package upwards, along with the two BMW Individual paint finishes Aventurine Red and Tanzanite Blue. The new metallic finish Piedmont Red is available exclusively for the new BMW X4. For the first time, there is also a choice of numerous special BMW Individual paint finishes for the two models, including matt finishes such as Frozen Deep Grey. The range of special finishes available is to be further expanded in the future.

Significantly revised interior.

The new BMW X3 and BMW X4 adopt the centre console of the current BMW 4 Series. The free-standing, central Control Display with touch function now comes standard with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches in all vehicles. The significantly improved standard equipment now also includes Leather Vernasca sports seats, as well as automatic climate control with 3-zone control. In order to make the vehicle configuration process clearer and more straightforward for customers, not least reducing the number of conflicts, the complexity of the equipment lines and optional extras has deliberately been reduced by 30 per cent. In addition to the cupholder and a model-specific emblem, the centre console accommodates the newly designed control island with the gear selector lever, buttons for the start/stop system, the electric parking brake, hill descent control and various driving experience functions as well as the BMW Controller. The engine start button is positioned here, too. New electroplated trim elements on the air vents add a touch of elegance while emphasising the horizontal lines in the interior. Additional functions are offered by the standard Ambient Light, which features contour lighting above the decorative trim in the dashboard and ambient lighting that shines gently downwards below the accent trim to create a particularly high-quality, relaxing atmosphere in the interior. 

Hybrid technology for all engines.

The new BMW X3 and BMW X4 demonstrate increasing electrification with modern hybrid technology in connection with all the drive systems available in Singapore. In addition to the BMW X3 xDrive30e with plug-in hybrid drive, which has been in production since December 2019, all 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder engines in the two model series now use 48-volt mild hybrid technology, including a 48-volt-starter generator, ensuring even better driving performance with lower fuel consumption and increased driving comfort. The energy obtained by means of recuperation and stored in the 48-volt battery can also be used for an electric boost of 8 kW/11 hp in addition to supplying the 12-volt on-board network.

Three petrol engines on offer.

Three drive options are available in Singapore for the new BMW X3 and BMW X4, covering a power range from 135 kW/184 hp to 265 kW/360 hp. These include the new BMW X3 xDrive20i and the new BMW X4 xDrive20i with 135 kW/184 hp, the new BMW X3 xDrive30i and the new BMW X4 xDrive30i with 180 kW/245 hp and the new BMW X3 M40i and new BMW X4 M40i with 265 kW/360 hp.

Plug-in hybrid with an electric range of up to 50 kilometres.

The new BMW X3 xDrive30e plug-in hybrid model is reserved for the SAV. Its system consists of a 4-cylinder petrol engine combined with an electric motor whose power is transmitted to all four wheels. Their joint system output of 215 kW/292 hp can be increased by up to 30 kW/41 hp by temporary use of the electric motor’s peak output. It has a lithium-ion high-voltage battery that enables a range of up to 50 kilometres.

8-speed Steptronic transmission and BMW xDrive as standard.

The new xDrive20i models are combined with 8-speed Steptronic gearboxes specifically matched to the respective engine characteristics while the new xDrive30i, xDrive30e and M40i models feature the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission including paddle shifts and Launch Control as standard. BMW xDrive all-wheel drive makes a significant contribution to the versatile sporty flair of the new BMW X3 and BMW X4. Its precise electronic control ensures especially sporty power distribution that is typical of the brand. Its rear-wheel orientation makes dynamic cornering in particular an especially intense experience. In addition, BMW xDrive optimises both driving stability and traction over rough terrain.

Driving Assistant Professional available for the first time.

In refreshing the BMW X3 and BMW X4, BMW has reorganised and once again significantly expanded the range of modern driver assistance systems to enhance both comfort and safety. The Driving Assistant Professional, available for the first time as an option in these model series, offers the driver comfortable relief and increased safety in driving situations where there is a conscious desire for assistance. The 3D environment visualisation Assisted View in the instrument cluster provides an overview of which Driving Assistant Professional assistance systems are activated and what functions they offer.

The cars come with functions such as Lane Departure Warning, plus Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function, the latest version of which also alerts the driver when a cyclist is detected, and Driving Assistant with Lane Change Warning, Rear Collision Prevention and Cross-Traffic Alert. The standard-fit Parking Assistant package also includes the Reversing Assistant, which helps retrace a completed line (50 metres) in reverse with the driver being able to keep a watchful eye via the surround view system. Another new feature in the new BMW X3 and BMW X4 is the optional BMW Drive Recorder, which takes videos around the vehicle.

BMW Live Cockpit Professional with 12.3-inch display as standard.

With the BMW Live Cockpit Professional as standard and intelligent networking including innovative digital services based on BMW Operating System 7, the new BMW X3 and BMW X4 now offer particularly close interaction between driver and vehicle. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional offers a fully digital display network: the high-resolution instrument cluster behind the steering wheel and the Control Display each have a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. 

Smartphone connectivity and integration of third-party services.

The BMW Live Cockpit Professional also features optimised wireless smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay. Here, the driver can view all the important information from the apps on the Control Display and – in intelligently processed form – in the instrument cluster and the optional BMW Head-Up Display (standard on the new xDrive30i and M40i models).

With Android Auto™, the BMW Group has added another customer-relevant service to its range of seamless in-vehicle connectivity, offering easy and safe use of smartphone functions such as music, media or messaging apps while driving. Highlights of the interaction between Android Auto and BMW include convenient and wireless networking and the intelligent integration of Google Maps™ navigation instructions in the BMW Head-up Display.

In addition, the My BMW App is a universal interface to the vehicle. It offers information on the state of the vehicle at all times and, depending on the options fitted, enables remote access functions such as vehicle location, locking and unlocking the doors or recording the vehicle’s surroundings via the Remote 3D View function (standard on the new M40i models).

Enhanced functionality for the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

The BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is also constantly gaining additional capabilities in the new BMW X3 and BMW X4, creating an even more intensive bond between driver and vehicle. With the digital companion, naturally spoken instructions can now be used to regulate the air conditioning, open and close the windows or change the driving experience switch modes, for instance. It can also access the new News app, which reads out the latest news to passengers, and learn routines that increase comfort and driving pleasure in certain situations. 

Remote Software Upgrade updates “over-the-air”.

Since 2018 and the introduction of BMW Operating System 7, it has been possible for drivers of BMW models to keep their vehicle constantly up to date with the latest software status using Remote Software Upgrade. In the new BMW X3 and BMW X4, too, upgrades can include different content from new services to improved vehicle features and can be loaded "over-the-air". Furthermore, intelligent networking offers the option to integrate additional functions into the vehicle at a later date. The options that can be retrofitted digitally include the high beam assistant and BMW Drive Recorder.

The new BMW X3 and BMW X4 are now available for viewing at the Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos showrooms.
