The interior of the 2022 X3 SUV is also going to several updates as far design is concerned. One of the most prominent changes is going to be a larger infotainment unit. Besides the new 12.3-inch free-standing touchscreen infotainment system with the latest iDrive connected technology, the SUV will get a digital instrument cluster and redesigned switchgear. The SUV will get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity as well.

There is not going to be much change under the hood of the new BMW X3. The German carmaker is expected to continue with its 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-petrol and turbo-diesel engines used in the current models. The engines, mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, will be paired with BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

Globally, BMW offers 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with the X3. However, tho those larger 3.0-litre engines are unlikely to be available with the India-spec model.

When launched, 2022 BMW X3 facelift will rival the likes of 2021 Audi Q5 facelift, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Volvo XC60. The 2022 BMW X3 facelift is expected to be launched at price ranging between 55 lakh and 70 lakh (ex-showroom).
