2021 BMW X3 vs 2020 BMW X3

Serving Seaside, CA

The BMW X3 has consistently been a smart pick for crossover SUV shoppers who demand luxury and athleticism behind the wheel. At BMW of Monterey, our sales reps are excited to be a part of your next crossover purchase. We are thrilled to help you learn about the significant updates that have been made to the new X3 for 2021.


The BMW X3’s powertrains and supporting features are identical between the 2020 and 2021 model years. You can enjoy the feel of 248 horsepower through a TwinPower Turbo I-4, 2.0-liter engine. A 3.0-liter, I-6 variant is another option, and it gives you 382 horsepower. If you prefer to drive a hybrid crossover SUV, the I-4 engine is available in combination with an electric motor.


The X3’s robust, sophisticated façade that you may love about the 2020 model holds steady in the new model year. Its sportiness is accentuated by metallic accents that run along the lower sides and the lower front fascia. A two-part grille, piercing LED headlights, and air vents near the front fenders give the X3’s style an extra boost.


The most important differences between the 2020 and 2021 X3 versions are found in their included and available features. For 2021, Android Auto and numerous assistive safety features have become standard. At different trim levels, your new X3 may have a power liftgate, auto-dimming side mirrors, parking sensors at the front and rear, remote monitoring, a tri-zone auto climate control system, a navigation system, and other gear.

Our BMW of Monterey reps want you to appreciate everything about your next luxury crossover. The X3’s updates elevate its appeal and are worthy of a full review through a test drive. Please drop by the dealership today, or contact us soon to set up a time for an X3 test drive experience.
