We got to see some spy pictures of the new 2017 BMW X3. What we saw of this most affordable crossover from the German automaker other than the sub-compact X1 certainly impressed us.

The car is currently being tested somewhere in Europe and will be the 3rd generation and is expected to have the same design lines as the X5 and the X6.

The earlier models have sold well and this has motivated the German carmaker to produce this vehicle in 6 different generations and 5 different body styles.
You can expect the interiors to be very luxurious and comfortable as well as stylish. There is plenty of space at the back to accommodate passengers and the cabin overall is also very large as well as roomy.

On the outside, the 2017 BMW X3 is large in size and its body makes it look very impressive. The tailgate is truly impressive and the large wheels and brakes are other impressive features that help to make the BMW look and feel very special. The LED headlights and a sunroof as well as top quality front wheel air curtains are other interesting features. The best part is that the carmaker is offering buyers a whole host of body color options to choose from.
