Serving Seaside, CA

The BMW X3 made a big impact when it hit the market in 2018. This compact luxury crossover SUV stands out from the crowd with its head-turning style and exciting features. In 2020, BMW released the X3 M, which is a high-performance version of the X3. With BMW's focus on automotive evolution and improvement, it has made a subtle improvement to the 2021 model. Are you eager to get familiar with the X3 M and to pick out your next high-performance SUV from our inventory at BMW of Monterey?


The 2020 BMW X3 M is equipped with a twin-power turbo I-6 engine that will impress you with 473 horsepower. It is tied to an eight-speed auto transmission that features Drivelogic shifting. If you crave more power, you can choose the X3 M with the Competition Package add-on. With this equipment, your BMW X3 M will give you 503 horsepower. Additional mechanical features in the X3 M include xDrive, intelligent all-wheel drive, anti-locking brakes, paddle shifters, electronic throttle control, Launch Control, an Air Breather system, and other equipment. When you compare the capabilities and equipment for the 2020 BMW X3 M to the 2021 model, you will see that they are identical.


BMW also kept the appealing style of the X3 M the same for 2020 and 2021. The front end has an aggressive, dominant look with commanding headlights and a three-piece lower-front fascia with black mesh. The grille mounted in the center of the front end is outlined in chrome and has BMW's signature look. Powerful air vents sit next to the front wheel fenders, and the sides are sculpted to perfection. The exterior of the BMW X3 M for both model years may be equipped with 20-inch Y-shaped wheels, M quad tailpipes, heated and powered side mirrors, a rear spoiler, roof rails, a power sunroof, and a few additional features.


The expressive interior design in the 2020 BMW X3 M is unchanged, and one important improvement has been made for the 2021 model year. If you choose to head home in the 2021 model, your X3 M will come with a wireless internet hotspot as a standard feature. This will be combined with all of the impressive features that carry up from the 2020 model year. Some of these features are red paddles on the heated steering wheel, high-performance seats, memory for the driver's seat, quilted stitching with leather material, a digital driver's cockpit display screen, a floating screen for the infotainment system, a navigation system, an auto climate control system and other items.
