This model received a facelift in 2014, but there is not much changed since 2010. The next-gen 2018 BMW X3 G01 is reported to be different. First, it is going to be built on the new CLAR platform. It means the entire weight can be reduced. Even though weight reduction is estimated to achieve 100 kg, this car is likely gaining more weight as the interior is going to be sophisticated.
During the prototype testing video, we should notice new exhaust tips, in the oval shape, on each side of the rear bumper. In addition to it, the front brakes are now twin-piston as well. From what we can see so far, this prototype can be the M Performance variant of the car, or what is called as 2018 BMW X3 G01 M40i.
Second, there will be few tweaks on the outer look as we can guess from the prototype. It is going to be a little sportier while it is still muscular. Third, the interior will receive the major update. Most likely, it will be built to rival Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class.
