German automaker BMW is expected to launch its new facelift version of the X3 in the country on January 20. The luxury carmaker has also started bookings for the BMW X3 2022, according to a Live Mint report.

According to news reports, people who pre-book the SUV will have a chance to win special 20-inch M alloy wheels, worth Rs 20 lakh, for free.

The new BMW X3 2022 features reworked exteriors and interiors, including aluminum finish on roof rails and window frames. The SUV also gets a new front profile, along with sharper LED headlights. The car also gets a bigger kidney grille.

The luxury SUV is expected to come with updated exhausts and bumpers. The X3’s taillights will also get a new look, as they’re much slimmer than the outgoing model.

According to news reports, the BMW X3 is expected to come with 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines, which were also part of the outgoing model.

While the luxury carmaker will offer 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with the X3 model, the larger engines are unlikely to be part of the India-spec model, according to Hindustan Times.

The India model X3’s 2.0-litre engines will be mated to BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive, according to reports.

In addition, the facelift of the BMW X3 also gets a digital instrument panel, updated shifting gear, a new 12.3-inch free-standing infotainment system with touchscreen and many other new features. The SUV also gets a revised center console, which is similar to that found in BMW’s 4 Series.

The BMW X3 2022 facelift will be priced between Rs 55 lakh to Rs 70 lakh (ex-showroom) according to a Hindustan Times report.

It will compete with other rivals in the sector such as the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5 facelift, Volvo XC60 and Land Rover Discovery Sport.
