Kuwait welcomes third gen BMW X3
Kuwait, August 31, 2014
BMW has introduced the new BMW X3 with a new sporty design, improved driving dynamics and efficiency along with the four-wheel drive system in Kuwait.
The new model is powered by xDrive28i four-cylinder engine with 180 kW/245 hp and the xDrive35i top-of-the-range engine with 225 kW/306 hp that goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds, a statement said.
The new BMW X3 is now available at Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive’s BMW showroom, Kuwait.
Major design upgrades include a re-designed kidney grille, modified twin headlights and new front and rear bumper that make the car look more sporty, dynamic and powerful, it said.
In addition, four new exterior paint colours and five types of alloy wheel designs are available for more individuality.
The new X3 offers both interior spaciousness and rear load capacity (550–1,600 litres). Understated chrome finishes, centre console with automatic climate control system in high-gloss black-panel look, and wood panelling with pearl-effect chrome highlights contribute further to the surroundings. The modern interior design also includes new trims, high-quality materials with an outstanding level of spaciousness and comfortable seating for five people, the statement said.
The new vehicle has two additional individualisation options: the xLine package features matt aluminium inserts in the bumpers, aluminium satiated side cladding and bars in the air intakes. It also allows customers to choose from additional cloth or leather upholstery in a variety of different colours with contrasting stitching, it said.
The dynamic qualities of the new BMW X3 can be showcased by specifying the optional ‘sport package’, with the aerodynamic package and BMW individual high-gloss shadow line trim maximising the car’s sporty presence on the road.
Customers can choose from six exterior paint colours including carbon black metallic and exclusive light-alloy wheel options in 18 and 19-inch, the statement said.
Among the new features from ‘BMW ConnectedDrive’ on board the BMW X3 is the ‘iDrive controller’ with integrated touchpad (for text input using finger movements). The other optional features includes parking assistant, the full-colour BMW head-up display, the anti-dazzle function and high beam assistant for improved visibility in the dark and driving assistant plus, including lane departure warning that detects vehicles in the driver's blind spot. Active cruise control with stop and go function and surround view (360°) for optimal visibility are also available when manoeuvring in tight spaces, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
