And is that the most important news will come on the market, technical and mechanical.

Under the hood, the engine range will be composed by a selection of blocks of the latest generation of both diesel and gasoline. Engines of both three-and four-cylinder as well as a hybrid variant plug-in. It will be the first time that the BMW X3 has a variant of this kind in its history.
