2017 Model Year F25 BMW X3 Changes, Ordering Guide, and Pricing Guide

X3 family,

I was browsing through our friends over at Bimmerfest and thought this might be of interest to you fine people. I apologize if this information is redundant or has previously been posted.

Note: This is essentially a post-rip from Bimmerfest

2017 BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle

The MY2017 X3 starts production in April 2016. This is likely the last year of production for the current generation F25 X3 before the G01 replaces it. For the last year of production BMW has made a series of changes. Key changes for the MY 2017 X3 include:
  • New, innovative features available including Navigation with iDrive 5.0
  • Wireless Charging, and WiFi Hotspot
  • Design change for the optional standalone 19" wheel
  • New exterior paint color

I don't understand why it took them this long. The current M-Sport steering wheel doesn't look that sporty. The one in the 3-series and X5 is the real deal. My other half loves it and I'm even contemplating retrofitting one.

Just saw a 2017 X3 yesterday. They also have the upgraded Nav system with the menu layout from the G12 7 series. Pretty cool.

Awesome! Does this mean that an X3 I ordered with production in KW 31 will have the new system?

Doesn't it seem odd that they would incorporate this 2017 change into a "technically" 2016 model though?

Yes. BMW would loved to have waited to release new Idrive with new model design.

But, I suspect since the major telecoms are phasing out 3G, BMW wants to get all products moved over to LTE.

Was this also with the touchscreen? Or just the menu layout in the F25 X3? Is the screen size the same?

It seems like it's just the menu layout which will be side by side tiles according to a press release. Don't know about the new idrive controller and doubt there will be touchscreen. Anyone can confirm or update on this please?

Thanks for the reply and document Harroldv. For those interested, here is the relevant information from the press release. It's still rather ambiguous, as it is unclear if the new controller and touch screen will be available:

BMW X3 and BMW X4: extended standard equipment, new
equipment lines, innovative options.


From April 2016 the standard equipment of the BMW X3 and
BMW X4 will also include multifunction buttons on the steering
wheel, rain-sensing wipers and Cruise Control with Braking function.
And new equipment lines will create additional scope for
individualisation. The range of variants available as an alternative to
standard specification will include the new Advantage model
alongside the xLine and M Sport models. The Advantage model will
include Park Distance Control (PDC) with sensors at the front and rear, two-zone automatic climate control, the storage package and, in
the case of the BMW X3, also automatic tailgate operation (already
part of standard equipment for the BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupe).
The Chestnut Bronze metallic shade will be introduced as a new
exterior paint finish for the BMW X3 and BMW X4. And new variants
will also be added to the selection of optional light-alloy wheels. New
equipment options available for both models include telephony with
wireless charging and the wi-fi hotspot function. Working together
with the optional Navigation system Professional, the iDrive operating
system now also offers innovative menu graphics for the Control
Display in the BMW X3 and BMW X4, using tile symbols arranged
side-by-side

Would you wait to buy a new X3 now or just wait another nearly 2 years for the new model?
