2012 BMW X3 spied
With the work on the compact crossover X1 done, BMW has moved their attention on to the next SUV planned for their lineup, the next generation X3. Internally known as the F25, the new BMW X3 will make its world debut sometime in 2011.
The new X3 will be built on the same platform as the next generation 3-Series and will feature much more conservative bodywork than before. The X3 will feature improved aerodynamics, thanks to a number of clever aero tweaks to the underside of the car, as well as a few flaps that direct air flow into the intakes. When the crossover utility vehicle does go on sale, expect for the engine lineup to include everything from a 175 HP 2.0 Liter diesel unit to the twin turbocharged straight six displacing 3.0 Liters and producing 305 HP.
