BMW extends X3 engine range

From autumn 2011 BMW will be adding two models to its X3 SUV range; the BMW X3 xDrive20i and the BMW X3 xDrive35d.

Producing 184 hp and 270 Nm of torque from its twin-turbocharged 2.0L four cylinder unit, the BMW X3 xDrive20i will be the range’s entry-level version. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, though an eight-speed automatic can be specified as an option.

The diesel-engined BMW X3 xDrive35d is powered by a 3.0L straight-six unit, again makes use of the company’s TwinPower Turbo technology – two-stage turbocharging (Variable Twin Turbo) system. This results in 313 hp and 630 Nm of torque which is available from as low as 1,500 to 2,500 rpm down the rev range. Eight-speed automatic transmission comes as standard on the BMW X3 xDrive35d, as does the Auto Start-Stop function.
