World premiere in Paris: the new BMW X3.
The new BMW X3 steps up for its world debut at the Paris Motor Show as the successor to a genuine top seller. Compared with its successful predecessor, the new Sports Activity Vehicle delivers that bit more agility as well as driving comfort. A similarly palpable increase in interior space and stowage capacity benefits rear-seat passengers in particular, but is also welcome in the luggage compartment. With its load capacity now expandable from 550 to 1,600 litres … CONTINUED

While no press test drives for the new X3 have been available yet, David Thomas from Cars.com recently had an opportunity to poke around a preproduction 2011 X3 at the BMW Championship at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club. He came away very impressed at its upgraded quality, design, and size from the first generation X3.
The 2011 BMW X3 makes its worldwide public debut at the Paris Motor Show at the end of this month.
The German BMW X3 Brochure has been released. English speakers unable to read the text can nonetheless gleam the X3 features, options, accessories, and packages from the photos. We will bring you the US version when available.
To better capture the U.S. market with the new BMW X3, BMW spent more time and effort on new North American owner friendly upholders than anyone would ever expect. Big Gulp fans rejoice. Seriously though, if this proves helpful to North American X3 sales, then it was money and time well spent.
Now that the 2012 X3 has been officially announced and shown by BMW, X3s are free to roam the streets naked, without their constricting and stuffy camouflage coverings. Spotted here in Munich are black and white X3s, the first real life photos of uncovered 2012 X3′s.
The all new BMW X3 has proven to be very positively recieved by the BMW community at large. We continue coverage in our official BMW X3 thread with some new videos and new wallpapers!
We bring you the world debut of the 2011 BMW X3 (F25)!! This new X3 has improved greatly upon the first generation X3 both cosmetically and dynamically. Check inside for full info and photos, videos and wallpapers surrounding the new X3.
Here are the very first OFFICIAL 2011 X3 (F25) photos! The X3 has turned out to be more attractive than any rendering based on spy photos. Its official reveal will be tomorrow, so stay tuned shortly for the full set of official specs and photos!
A few shots of the new interior for the F25. It looks like the X3 will recieve a similar tach to the 7 series and 5 series, which is really awesome news. The new interior style is of course one of the best traits of new BMWs and theres no signs that BMW has cheaped out at all on the X3. I can’t wait to not only see this new X3 but feel the quality as well.
Its coming soon. I swear
Comparing these photoshops of the upcoming BMW X3 to the large amount of available spy shots (and officially released "spyshots") of the car, these photoshops done by AutoZeitung and a French Car Magazine, seem to be an almost 99% accurate depiction of the real car. We shall of course find out as not only all the real photos but also all the fine details of the next generation F25 BMW X3 is said to be released in the month of July……
Following spy pics of the next generation BMW X3 is getting tiring now that we know basicly what the car looks like. We are all ready to see the real deal, even more so that we believe this car will be a segment leader with the new upgrades. These photos by PalBay bring some closeup and some interesting angles…they just might be the last spy pics prior to the reveal.Hopefully it wont be long before I can post up some "Full Monty" real … CONTINUED
This BMW X3 teaser site has been in a holding phase for nearly a month now, possibly because it was released too soon? Regardless, all signs and whispers point to a full reveal and release of the X3 in the month of July, possibly even next week sometime. I certainly hope so, because I actually think its a nice model that bucks some trends in its category while at the same time upping the quality levels that are lacking in the current X3. … CONTINUED
Ive heard a few folks on the X3 forums who want to see the 2nd Gen in a " real life " size comparison vs the current X5.All of the size comparisons so far for the 2nd Gen X3 have been against the current X3. Could not deliver the X5 but a few pics with an X6 and a couple of Fords.Enjoy and Thanks. PalBay
