Since this is still an SUV that weighs more than two tons, it will also require plenty of stopping power, but it is significantly less than what would be found on the M40i.
Another difference, when compared to the M40i variant, is the fact that the rear of the vehicle does not have any visible exhaust pipes, although the internal combustion engine can be heard. The difference could be justified by the fact that this model is an entry-level one, which would not put an emphasis on horsepower, but rather on the practical aspects of owning a BMW X3, such as interior space, comfort, and others.
On top of what we have already seen, this set of spy shots provides us with a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming X3 when the interior is concerned. As you can observe in the photo gallery, the dashboard is different, and this can be noticed even without lifting the camouflage that is on it.
For example, the gauge cluster area does not have the traditional raised cowl, as it used to have, but it seems to have been replaced by a TFT screen.
The same can be said about the central multimedia screen, which seems to be placed in line with the gauge cluster. It is important to note that this is an early prototype and that things might change until the production version is ready, though.
Our analysis of the changes made to the dashboard and interior is only based on what we have seen on this prototype, so things may be different for the production car. Yet it would not be surprising to see the traditional gauge cluster area getting replaced with a screen.
