UNIQUE PERFORMANCE, HIGH EVERYDAY SUITABILITY.

Discover the high-performance components of the BMW X3 M40i.

More pull: 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.

The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, adapted to meet the highest sport requirements for the M Performance automobile, offers incredibly sporty gear changes. Whether automatic or manual using gearshift paddles or gear lever - for comfortable coasting or incredibly dynamic driving. In SPORT mode and with the gear lever in the lefthand S/M position, the gear shifts are configured for maximum performance.

Sporty configuration: the chassis.

The optional Adaptive M suspension can be electronically adjusted at any time to suit the road and driving conditions. The driver can also adjust the suspension characteristics via the Driving Experience Control to enable their preferred driving style at the time – from comfortable to extremely athletic with markedly agile handling.

More traction: BMW xDrive.

The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system, adapted to the M Performance automobile, impresses with its rear-emphasised driving handling and especially dynamic driving performance. It smoothly and variably distributes drive power to the front and rear wheels for maximum traction, driving dynamics and safety in every driving situation. For even better agility, the electronically controlled power distribution for instance counterbalances oversteer or understeer on bends. This is ensured by Performance Control, which distributes the driving and braking forces on the individual wheels when taking the curves. The outer wheels get more power, the inner wheels less, whereby all wheels use their maximum traction.

Gripping: M Sport brake.

The M Sport brake has four-piston fixed callipers at the front and one-piston floating callipers at the rear in blue with the M designation and features large brake discs to ensure an outstanding braking performance.

Even more precise maneuvering: the steering.

The Variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and ensures less physical effort is required to turn the wheel. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel with varying steering ratios. This improves handling when driving more dynamically and reduces the effort needed to steer when parking and turning.

Increased efficiency: intelligent lightweight construction.

Intelligent lightweight construction at BMW means using the right material for the right parts of the vehicle. For every single component, the most suitable material is selected. This philosophy, also known as BMW EfficientLightweight, is integral to BMW EfficientDynamics and applied to every BMW M Performance vehicle.

BMW Individual exterior highlights.

Specially developed for the BMW X3, the BMW Individual paint finish Sunstone metallic is in a silver colour with nuances of gold and, thanks to special pigmentation, has an intensity that varies with impressive effect according to the fall of light. The result: The powerful silhouette of the BMW X3 M40i sets the scene with even more striking impact. The optional 21" BMW Individual light- alloy wheels V-spoke style 726 I further underscore its sporty elegance.

BMW Individual interior highlights.

A masterful interplay of colour: With the Bicolour version of the BMW Individual extended fine-grain Merino leather, the intense Fiona Red in combination with deep Black makes an exceptionally sporty impression in the interior of the BMW X3 M40i. Stitching in a contrasting colour adds an extra dynamic dimension. The high-gloss BMW Individual interior trim in Piano finish Black is another compelling highlight.

SMALL GESTURES. BIG IMPACT.

SMALL GESTURES. BIG IMPACT.

The operating concept of the BMW X3 M40i inspires with outstandingly intuitive user guidance. Clearly arranged controls and short distances between them and the steering wheel take the driving experience to a new level. Specific functions can be operated via the intelligent BMW voice control or BMW gesture and touch control. Movements such as “swiping” or “pointing” are all it takes to control phone calls or the navigation system.
