BMW X3 M 2019: caught Erlkönig with reduced camouflage

With huge air at the Front and four massive tailpipes the new BMW X3 M 2019 is inlets in the vicinity of the plant in Spartanburg. Erlkönig-hunter Palbay has caught the prototypes with reduced camouflage, and provides us with some further information on the Design of the first mid-size SUV in the full M-Look, and especially with the full M-technic. Clear indications also provide the specific M wing mirrors and the brake system with perforated discs at the front and rear.

The BMW X3 M F97 together to make his debut with the BMW X4 M F98 in the spring of 2019, both use the same technology package and to speak in principle, a similar target group. Just like in the case of the weaker base-models, the customer between a typical SUV Look, and a large item of Luggage space on the one or extroverted dynamics in the style of an SUV-coupe on the other hand, decide.

The focus of the technology-Interested parties should, however, not the Design, but the powertrain of the new BMW X3 M in 2019. Under the hood of the new M six-cylinder S58 celebrates his debut, a few months later, the engine is in the BMW M3 G80 and BMW M4 G82. In addition to three liters of displacement and two turbochargers, it will be mainly the water injection, which ensures the prying eyes of technology enthusiasts and of course for more performance as in the case of the current S55, only in his 500-HP Version for the special model M4 GTS via water injection.

For the new BMW X3 M in 2019, we expect values to start with no such power, realistic indication of performance appears to be more in the range of 450 to 475 HP. The power is transmitted with the help of the Performance-oriented all-wheel drive M xDrive, in addition to a-stage and fully variable power distribution between the axles for optimum distribution between the rear wheels.

The aim of the M GmbH, the same as in the case of M3 and M4 is: Even if competitors such as the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S 4MATIC+ or Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV throw over 500 HP in the Ring, to the superior driving dynamics of the BMW X3 M F97 and X4 M F98 for better lap times and, ultimately, more fun to drive. If this Plan works, we learn in 2019.
