After a major redesign for the 2018 year model, the 2019 BMW X3 is not going to suffer huge changes. A minimum of it seems like from today’s point of view. Its features and styling are at leading level. Also, glamorous styling doesn’t need more updates. However, this model might get a hybrid version. Likewise, big changes on the 2018 year model might suggest that we are getting closer to a new generation of the BMW X3. Well, it is not happening before 2020. The third generation will most likely wait for another model to come from production in 2019. Among the things that remain the same are rivals. A compact crossover will deal with Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLC in the battle for more purchasers.
2019 BMW X3 Hybrid
Reports and information are split in between talking about future of hybrid X3. For a while, we can hear chatters about the plug-in variation. Nonetheless, these are constantly not likely and questionable. Now, when all fans expect to see 2019 BMW X3 in a hybrid variation, there is another possibility. An all-electric model might spoil the look of plug-in X3 and take the show. For a hybrid, BMW plans to combine a xDrive30e engine with an electric motor. The more effective variation would be if batteries are mated to a xDrive40e. In that case, the crossover is going to have the ability to produce around 330 hp.
