The BMW X3 xDrive30d model sits at the top of the local range above the X3 xDrive20d and the X3 xDrive28i. It is powered by a six-cylinder diesel engine with 190kW of power and 560Nm of torque, representing a 30kW/60Nm increase over the previous model.

The savings are the result of a range of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies, including brake energy regeneration, automatic start/stop, electric power steering and other engine revisions.

Additional features over the X3 xDrive20d include 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic tailgate, leather upholstery, electric seat adjustment and the X-Line package, which adds aluminium and titanium-look exterior highlights.

New features over the previous-generation X3 diesel include the eight-speed automatic transmission, rear-view camera, USB connectivity, 6.5-inch colour screen and 40/20/40 split-fold rear seats.
