The X3 has been the car that basically started the compact luxury crossover market.
Ever since it was released it remained one of the best-selling models and even though more recently this is no longer true, it still is one of the better cars out there. In order to get back on top, an all-new version is going to be released with the 2018 BMW X3. This new car will finally get to use BMW’s brand new CLAR architecture which also underpins the new 7 Series. With it, the X3 will weigh a lot less than before. In fact, some rumors suggested losses of as much as 200 to 300 pounds.
