2022 BMW X3 M40i First Drive – The SUV That Can Do It All

After taking a 2021 BMW X3 on a year-long test the crew at MotorTrend have taken the newest version (2022) on a First Test. 

Abstract art seems to have a strong influence on BMW’s styling approach, and changes made to the 2022 X3’s exterior better align it with the strange forms permeating the marque’s portfolio.

The headlights are slightly slimmer while the signature kidney grille grows and is outlined by a single frame. Lower down, sharper-edged air intakes are enlarged. At the rear, slender horizontal vents suggest aerodynamics are at play. More noticeable are the redesigned taillights, which BMW describes as having “a three-dimensional-modelled pincer-claw contour.” Right. A multitude of M badges remain, and side mirrors with tiny winglets are a new detail cribbed from the full-fledged X3 M.
