BMWs mid-sized SUV, the X3, now boasts an entirely turbo-charged engine line-up with the arrival of the latest iteration of BMWs new four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo two-litre petrol engine in the X3 xDrive 28i.

The new X3 xDrive 28i sees its previous six-cylinder engine replaced with the new four-cylinder engine featuring a twin-scroll turbocharger with VALVETRONIC, Double-VANOS camshaft control and High Precision Injection. Producing 180 kW from 5,000 rpm and 350 Nm across 1,250-4,800 rpm, the X3 xDrive 28i sprints from 0-100 km/h in just 6.7 seconds, an improvement of 0.2 seconds.

Now also featuring the fuel saving automatic start/stop function, the X3 xDrive 28i fuel consumption has improved by 1.5 litres to 7.5 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions reduced by 35 grammes to 175 g/100 km, which is identical to that of the X3 xDrive 20i.

While performance and consumption has improved, so too has the level of standard specification. Coupled with the addition of the automatic start/stop function the X3 xDrive 28i also receives business navigation as standard along with the X3 xDrive 30d, and the entire range is also now equipped with Driving Experience Control which includes ECO PRO mode.
