The first teaser images of the brand new 2011 BMW X3 have appeared on the company's website in the Netherlands.

The all-new 2011 BMW X3 can be expected within a few months if the company's marketing machine is to be used as a yardstick. An official public reveal is expected at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. These teaser photos revealing the compact SAV's bonnet, rear lights and some rear details have appeared on BMW's Dutch website.

Over the past couple of years we've spied the new-shape vehicle in various places and guises. Just recently a good deal of its camouflage came off and our spies were able to capture the front bumper, grille, headlights and greenhouse.

Engines will of course be shared with other cars at BMW, including the 2.0-litre twin turbo diesel making 400Nm and the 3.0-litre straight six with various power configurations.
