BMW's fourth-generation X3 compact crossover will feature the brand's upsized signature kidney grille and slimmer LED lights, according to photos of a heavily camouflaged prototype spied in Germany.
The X3 is BMW's top-selling model in Canada, accounting for 34.8 per cent of total sales in the first half of 2022. It's the second best-selling model in the United States.
The redesigned model should go into production in August 2024 at BMW's factory in Spartanburg, S.C., with North American deliveries beginning in late 2024, according to AutoForecast Solutions.
BMW will offer multiple versions of the upcoming X3 globally, including all-electric, plug-in hybrid and M performance variants.
It's unclear whether BMW will build the next-generation battery-powered iX3 on the current model's Cluster Architecture platform or hold off until 2025, when the automaker unveils an all-electric Neue Klasse architecture.
