A prototype for the next-generation BMW X3 has broken cover, hitting a frozen lake in the Arctic Circle. The prototype was caught testing with a current X3, and a check into German records has confirmed this prototype as registered as an X3.
The next X3 is expected to use a version of the RWD BMW F30 3-Series platform, with an AWD version obviously part of the package. The X3 will continue with a diesel powertrain, along with a new addition of a hybrid-drive system and with the familiar range of BMW engines available in the 3-Series range.
