BMW’s smallest 4x4 model X 3 has been on the market since autumn 2003. Now BMW is preparing a major facelift for the X3, due for launch in coming July. The new X 3 will then be in the dealerships in September 2006. Customers had complained among others about the fake plastic noble look of the interior design. This will see a major change, complete with new bumpers at front and rear end.

The photos are showing a latest prototype without any disguise caught during tests in the streets of Munich. The front end has a smoother look with alterations at headlights and front and rear skirt. Also note the different new taillights on the white prototype.

At the same time the X3 will get the new fuel engines from the brand- new 3-Series, such as the 2.5 litre/218 HP and for the X3 3.0i a 3.0 litre/258 HP. The 3.0d is said to be equipped with a six-cylinder delivering 231 HP.
