The next generation BMW X3 has been long awaited with the current model having been around for a long time. It might have even been thought that it was not coming at all but these recent spy shots of it testing in wintery conditions show that it is still being developed.
The spies also had some information about the platform of the car, stating that it would provide more space inside as well as better visibility. It is also expected to get B-series engines, with four and six cylinder options. There will be a hybrid option released later as well, it is thought. It is also rumoured that there will be some performance orientated options with a X3 M40i model coming afterwards and then a X3 M in the future too. It looks like the car will be slightly bigger as well. There is a lot of camouflage on it though so the photographs do not reveal very much about the styling details.
