The biggest competitors for the BMW X3 are the Audi Q5 and the Mercedes GLK - and both of them have just entered the market in their facelifted versions. So as no surprise BMW has decided to do the same for the X3. And our spy photographers have caught the upcoming X3 facelift taken out for a test session.
And as you can see from these spy shots, the changes will be limited to front and rear bumper, grille and head lights - the only items that are being camouflaged. The front bumper will get new air intakes and the grille will be more upright as on the current version. What we can not tell for sure is if the headlights will go all the way to the grille now, just like on the 3-series, but we will find that out pretty soon.
The BMW X3 facelift will be making its official debut in March 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show.
