2014 to 2015 x3 horsepowe

The 2014 hp base was 240 while 2015 dropped to 180. Is this same model or different which is why the significant difference?

The 2014 and 2015 BMW X3 28i both came equipped with the N20 engine in the USA. The HP rating remained unchanged at 240 bhp for both model years. Perhaps you or your source mistakenly looked at the power rating in kW rather than HP for the 2015 model year which is 179 kW as it is for the 2014 year.

Thats the diesel version.

The 2015 BMW X3 28i models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission is standard on all BMW X3s, along with an automatic stop-start system. The latter saves fuel by shutting off the engine when stopped and then starting it when you take your foot off the brake. In BMW-speak, sDrive equals rear-wheel drive, while xDrive equals all-wheel drive.

In Edmunds performance testing, the X3 xDrive28i went from zero to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds, which is slightly better than the overall average for the segment and as quick as some six-cylinder crossovers. EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at 24 mpg combined (21 city/28 highway) for both the sDrive28i and xDrive28i.
The xDrive28d is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 180 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. BMW estimates it will go from zero to 60 mph in 7.8 seconds, which is slow for the segment but typical for a diesel. EPA-estimated fuel economy rings in at an excellent 30 mpg combined (27 city/34 highway).

So I have 2019 x3 30i and it's 4 cylinder turbocharged . But how come it's 8 hp more then the one that was 240 hp with same 4cylinder turbocharged. Obviously common sense says aeryodynamics and other components but not sure what is the huge factor making the difference

The G01 has the B48 engine.

The F25 has the N20.
