The X3 SUV has been updated with a larger kidney grille at the front in an all-black layout contributing to its sportier and more muscular appeal. The new single-frame grille is flanked by a set of reworked LED headlamps. Moreover, there is also a reprofiled front bumper and new vertical vents that distinguish the car from the earlier version.

Other notable additions to the exterior profile of the car include new alloy wheels, reprofiled LED taillights that now come tinted, along with a redesigned bumper with a tweaked diffuser.

As far as interiors are concerned details are yet to be revealed. In terms of mechanicals, the India-spec model may get the same 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. These units are likely to be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
