Paris Autoshow 2010 Live Coverage: BMW X3

World premiere in Paris: the new BMW X3.
The new BMW X3 steps up for its world debut at the Paris Motor Show as the successor to a genuine top seller. Compared with its successful predecessor, the new Sports Activity Vehicle delivers that bit more agility as well as driving comfort. A similarly palpable increase in interior space and stowage capacity benefits rear-seat passengers in particular, but is also welcome in the luggage compartment. With its load capacity now expandable from 550 to 1,600 litres (19.4 to 56.5 cu. ft.) and a rear seat bench that folds down at a ratio of
40 : 20 : 40, the new BMW X3 delivers more room and versatility than any competitor in its class.

The body design of the new BMW X3 radiates urbane elegance and robust agility. The combination of a flat front end and a raised rear end creates a dynamic wedge shape when viewed from the side, underlining the model’s sporting credentials. The convex and concave surfaces are accentuated by striking lines, lending the main body the appearance of a meticulously modelled sculpture. The front view of the new BMW X3 signals a self-assured presence with its forward-thrusting BMW kidney grille, its large headlight assemblies, a powerful-looking front apron and a bonnet boasting six contour lines that converge on the twin-kidney grille.

A generous and versatile spatial concept along with high-quality materials and characteristically contoured surfaces lend the interior of the new BMW X3 a modern, premium ambience and intelligent functionality. The raised seating position facilitates entry and optimises the view of traffic on the road. Both in the front and in the rear, the new BMW X3 boasts numerous generous storage compartments, trays and cup holders, while the three rear seats offer outstanding long-distance comfort thanks to significantly more legroom and elbowroom compared to the outgoing model.

LOVE the x3 35
The M-sport kit looks amazing on it.
I'm glad to see a red interior option too...very sporty.

so I like it, but the wood trim doesn't match with the seats color. But I am actually surprised that this thing came out looking good.

Looks Sick!

But I think it needs tires with a higher sidewall.

I don't see the PDC sensors, they are well hidden on the X3 20D.

It looks better in a dark color. The M-Sport package helps a lot.

The front seats in the M-Sport leave a lot to be desired, they look quite flat, and no extension?

Hope those are not the actual sport seats...

How can you tell that without even seeing an interior picture of the M sport X3???

Those red/orange seats are from the X3 20d.

Chrome eyebrow and reflector in the headlamp are a letdown. These screwed those headlights. The LED rings are the only upside.
