2015 BMW X3 Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the BMW X3 Concept. 2015 BMW X3 changes is one brand new car from Audi that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 BMW X3 Release Date.
The 2015 BMW X3 is a luxury compact SUV that receives some changes this year. The base 2015 BMW X3 has rear-wheel drive and is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower. All-wheel drive and a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower are available. A turbodiesel 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is newly available for 2015, which produces 180 horsepower. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard, and a sport transmission with paddle shifters is available. Exterior highlights include redesigned headlights and front and rear bumpers.
The BMW X3 helped launch the compact luxury crossover segment more than a decade ago, and the model has grown even stronger over the years. The 2015 BMW X3 is one of the standouts in this competitive class, and is an ideal match for shoppers seeking both sporty driving dynamics and family-friendly utility.
In true BMW fashion, superior handling and performance are at the heart of the X3’s appeal. The typical luxury SUV is uninspiring on winding canyon roads, but the X3 breaks the mold with sharp reflexes that make it a top pick in its class for driver engagement.
The X3 faces impressive rivals, each with its own strengths. The Audi Q5 is the most synonymous with the X3, as it offers a similar blend of driving fun, utility and engine variety. The 2015 Porsche Macan is the class leader in handling and performance but it’s significantly more expensive than the X3 and offers less cargo capacity. On the other end of the spectrum, the 2015 Acura RDX and 2015 Volvo XC60 are among the most spacious and family-friendly, and offer better value as well. The Mercedes-Benz GLK350 impresses with its uniquely angular elegance, but it’s not as family-friendly as the X3, falling short in both cargo space and rear legroom.

Pricing for the new 2015 BMW X3 has been set at $38,400–$45,100 based on current exchange rates. If there are changes on the 2015 BMW X3 we will notify you as soon as possible, so keep follow our blog.

BMW Assist eCall, which automatically sends the vehicle’s location to a BMW call center after air bags deploy in a crash, comes standard. The 2015 BMW X3 starts at $39,325.
2015 BMW X3 Interior
The BMW X3 might not have the heady enthusiast reputation of the esteemed 3-Series sport sedan, or the sexier shape of the upcoming (and closely related) X4, but it adds up to what makes sense for a lot of image-conscious families: styling that’s smart and suave; a versatile layout; responsive road performance; and impressive fuel efficiency. Altogether it’s one of the best picks in its class, all considered, and for 2015 the X3 gets a mid-cycle refresh that brings a set of significant changes, as well as some new variants in the model lineup, while for the most part preserving all the fundamentals.
The sDrive28i model comes standard with 18-inch wheels, rear privacy glass, automatic headlights, LED foglamps, automatic wipers, a power liftgate, auto-dimming mirrors, cruise control, dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power front seats with driver memory functions, “SensaTec” premium vinyl upholstery, a 40/20/40 split-folding rear seat, a leather-wrapped tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, the iDrive electronics interface with touchpad controller, and a 12-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, an iPod/USB audio interface and an auxiliary audio jack.
2015 BMW X3 Exterior
This year as part of a light refresh the X3 gets new twin-circular headlights (with optional LED lamps, plus a more flamboyant version of the BMW kidney grille, exterior mirrors with integrated signal lamps, and some other minor changes to the front and rear appearance. Inside, the X5 is elegant but soft, calming, and decluttered–actually blending a driver-centric cockpit feel with the brand’s warmer interior look. This year brings some more chrome and brightwork, plus high-gloss black trim.
Headlining the changes is the availability of a new xDrive28d model, packing BMW’s punchy 2.0-liter TwinPower turbocharged diesel four-cylinder. Rated at 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque (with maximum twist available from just 1,750 rpm), the diesel X3 can hit 60 mph in under eight seconds, and will likely score well on EPA fuel mileage tests.
The Driver Assistance package adds front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. On top of this you can add the Driver Assistance Plus package (requires navigation), which has rear- and top-view parking cameras, a blind-spot detection system, a collision mitigation system and a lane-departure warning system. Adaptive cruise control is available with this package for additional cost. With the Lighting package, all trims except the xDrive35i get automatic xenon headlights, while adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams are added to xDrive35i models. Adaptive LED headlights are available with this package for sDrive28i, xDrive28i and xDrive35i models at additional cost.
The M Sport package features 19-inch wheels, roof rails, special exterior trim, sport front seats, special interior trim and headliner, unique door sills and footrest, and a sport steering wheel. All trims except the sDrive28i get an enhanced torque-vectoring version of the all-wheel-drive system. Also, all models except the xDrive28d get an eight-speed sport transmission with shift paddles. The xDrive28d gets the shift paddles minus the transmission upgrade.
2015 BMW X3 Engine
The 2015 BMW X3 28i models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on all BMW X3s, along with an automatic stop-start system. The latter saves fuel by shutting off the engine when stopped and then starting it when you take your foot off the brake. In BMW-speak, sDrive equals rear-wheel drive, while xDrive equals all-wheel drive.
In Edmunds performance testing, the X3 xDrive28i went from zero to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, which is slightly better than the overall average for the segment and as quick as some six-cylinder crossovers. EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway) for both the sDrive28i and xDrive28i.
A range of capable engines is available, starting with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel that’s been added for 2015. This engine delivers 180 horsepower and a robust 280 pound-feet of torque, but more importantly boasts the strongest mileage in the engine lineup at 30 mpg combined. Most X3 buyers, though, will likely opt for the energetic yet frugal 240-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder found in the 28i models. Rounding things out is a turbocharged 300-hp 3.0-liter inline-6 that makes the X3 xDrive35i one of the quickest in its segment, with minimal compromises in fuel economy.
