Available from 11 November 2017, the new X3 will initially just offer the 187bhp 132g/km four-cylinder xDrive20d and straight-six 261bhp 149g/km xDrive30d but from December, these will be joined by a new four-cylinder xDrive20i engine variant.

Priced from £37,980 OTR, the model comes as standard with eight-speed Steptronic transmission and intelligent all-wheel drive technology, offering 181bhp and a peak torque of 214lb.ft.

December will also see the first ever M Performance X3 become available, priced at £48,950 OTR.
