TECHNOLOGIES THAT UNITE DYNAMICS AND EFFICIENCY.

INTELLIGENT LIGHTWEIGHT CONSTRUCTION.

A wide range of high-tech materials are used in the construction of the BMW X3. These include lightweight materials such as aluminium in the front of the car and the chassis, high-strength steel in the body as well as ultra-modern plastics and magnesium.
This intelligent lightweight construction reduces the weight of components and ensures outstanding body stiffness and excellent passive safety for drivers and passengers. It also improves the dynamic driving characteristics thanks to an even, well-balanced weight distribution between front and rear axles.

ENERGY MANAGEMENT.

The BMW X3 has standard-feature technologies on board that it uses intelligently for energy coordination. This energy management is the secret behind its high level of efficiency. Only when all these technologies interact is the vehicle able to achieve its impressive figures for fuel consumption and emissions.

  • Optimum Shift Indicator
  • Automatic Start/Stop function
  • Electric Power Steering
  • Brake Energy Regeneration

AERODYNAMICS.

The entire vehicle design is testament to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy.
Every BMW boasts excellent air resistance figures thanks to a range of mutually optimised aerodynamic elements, which in turn has a positive effect on efficiency and fuel consumption.
For example, the flat undercarriage cover with engine compartment and rear axle shield improve the car's aerodynamics. These new casing elements are not only highly advantageous in terms of aerodynamics, they also improve sound insulation and provide greater protection from rust.
Further innovations in aerodynamics include the defined rear spoiler lip and the aerodynamically optimised exterior mirrors. The latter improve the acoustics in addition to the aerodynamics and prevent the side windows from getting as dirty.

ECO PRO MODE.

The ECO PRO Mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by upto 20 percent, depending on their driving style.
The additional functions of coasting (only available with 8-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic), Route-Ahead Assist (with the Navigation System Professional only) and ECO PRO Route (with the Navigation System Professional and Business only) can reduce consumption by a further 5 percent.

  • Coasting
  • Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go
  • Route-Ahead Assist
  • ECO PRO Route

8-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION STEPTRONIC.

The 8-speed Automatic Transmission Steptronic sets a new benchmark in dynamic performance and efficiency and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics.
The particularly finely tuned gradation of the gears allows optimum power delivery – at both low and high speeds. This reduces fuel consumption significantly, while allowing the driver to enjoy increased sportiness and dynamic performance. At high speeds in particular, the additional gears reduce engine speed, in turn decreasing both fuel consumption and engine noise.

The converter clutch also helps, even if the car is changed to the manual mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides a very high level of shift comfort and reduces noise considerably.
