The new BMW X3 M40i is the first ever M Performance model in the X3 line- up and sets new standards with its sharper dynamics, high level of exclusivity and standout emotional appeal. Developed with an insatiable appetite for revs and superb pulling power, the 3.0-litre M Performance six-cylinder in-line engine ensures the X3 M40i sits at the top end of the model range. Output of 265 kW/360 hp (fuel consumption combined: 8.4 – 8.2 l/100 km [33.6 – 34.5 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 193 – 188 g/km)* propels the flagship X3 from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in an impressive 4.8 seconds. The X3 M40i also includes a wealth of model-specific set-up and equipment features, which both underpin and lend added impact to the exceptional performance credentials of this SAV.
The BMW X3 M40i leaves the factory equipped with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission complete with Launch Control. This transmission is a perfect match for the engine’s dynamic characteristics and can be operated using shift paddles on the steering wheel. In addition, its xDrive all-wheel-drive system has a far more pronounced rear bias than on the other model versions. The Performance Control feature integrated into the DSC system and acting on the rear wheels has been reconfigured to produce the dynamism, agility and traction for which M models have made their name.
