Explore the Trims and Options of the BMW X3 near Cedar Rapids, IA

The BMW X3 isn't your typical luxury compact crossover. In fact, BMW prefers to call it their Sports Activity Vehicle®. It's a fitting name when you consider the potent engine options, voluminous and versatile cargo capacity, an ample array of standard and available features. It's important to note that those features aren't divided into standard trim levels like on most vehicles. Instead, they are differentiated by powertrain and then customized with available packages. To make things easier to understand, we've broken it down, below.

BMW X3 Powertrains

The BMW X3 is offered in three main versions, differentiated by their powertrains: sDrive30i, xDrive30i, and M40i.

The sDrive30i and xDrive30i models features the same turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (248 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) matched with an eight-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The main difference between the two is that sDrive models are rear-wheel drive and xDrive models are all-wheel drive.

The M40i is set in motion by a more powerful turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine rated at 355 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
