The Ultimate
Driving Machine®
Now you can blaze
your own trails.
Rugged good looks are just the beginning.
Experience driving
260 spirited horses
that rarely get thirsty.
We call it xDrive. You’ll call it a joy to drive.
Built for fun – even in dry weather.
With the X3, there’s no question who’s the center of attention. You are.
The look and feel of luxury.
Plenty of room for all that matters.
This is how much has gone in.
And this is what comes out.
At BMW, we create dynamic vehicles that thrill you with quick acceleration, predictable handling and unshakable control. We are also busy
finding ways to sustain this level of performance while incorporating innovative fuels and technologies to help preserve the environment.
This is what we refer to as “EfficientDynamics.” This goal has led to the visionary CleanEnergy hydrogen-powered engine, which is currently
used in the BMW Hydrogen 7 Sedan. BMW Advanced Diesel with BluePerformance, which offers diesel power with quick acceleration,
increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions, is being introduced to the U.S. in 2009 in select models. In fact, every BMW on the road
today comes standard with technology that boosts performance while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
Double-VANOS
VANOS is BMW’s valve timing system
that can “steplessly” vary the points in
the combustion cycle when valves open
and close. Double-VANOS refers to the
fact that it operates on both the intake
and exhaust camshafts. Electronically
controlled in response to engine speed,
load and temperature, VANOS reduces
emissions, and enhances low- to mediumspeed torque, as well as fuel efficiency.
Valvetronic
Instead of using a traditional throttle,
Valvetronic technology lets the engine
breathe more easily by varying the lift
height of the valves to regulate air intake.
The result: improved cold starts, smoother
running, and a significant drop in fuel consumption. Using revolutionary technology
such as this, BMW has improved its overall
average fuel economy more than any other
manufacturer.
Aerodynamics
The more smoothly that air flows over a vehicle, the more efficiently it can
operate. All BMWs are designed for a low coefficient of aerodynamic drag,
which translates into quicker acceleration, more stable handling, quieter
operation and greater fuel efficiency. A BMW’s integrated front spoiler reduces
the amount of air flowing underneath the vehicle, minimizing front-end lift.
This allows a BMW to hug the road at higher speeds for excellent stability.
Efficient transmissions
Two highly efficient 6-speed transmissions
– a silken manual, and a STEPTRONIC automatic with Adaptive Transmission Control
– enhance performance, comfort and fuel
efficiency.
Lightweight construction
Our engineers use lightweight aluminum
throughout our vehicles – in the front section,
for example, or for the suspension. BMW’s
naturally aspirated inline six-cylinder engine
is an aluminum/magnesium composite – the
lightest in its class. Taken together, these
weight savings lead to lower fuel consumption and better axle load distribution for more
agility – especially in curves.
BMW models have low CO2 emissions today.
But that’s just for starters. We’re carrying on
our research in the quest to bring you greater
driving pleasure, with fewer emissions and
decreased fuel consumption.
BMW EfficientDynamics
Less consumption. More exhilaration.

s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment or included in a Package
o Xenon Adaptive Headlights optimize road illumination when the X3 enters a curve or bend,
helping to enhance safety when driving at night. Sensors continuously monitor the angle of
the steering wheel, the vehicle’s speed, yaw and other factors to determine the direction in
which the X3 is heading. The headlights swivel accordingly, up to 15 degrees left or right.
Xenon low- and high-beam headlights illuminate the road ahead and to the side with brilliant
clarity. Includes auto-leveling to adjust for varying passenger and cargo loads. The Corona
headlight-rings that circle both headlights and high beams also act separately as Daytime
Running Lights and parking lights. (shown with optional Cold Weather Package)
s Halogen free-form foglights are cleanly
integrated into the front air dam, illuminating
the road ahead in bad weather and poor
visibility.
s White indicator lights add a fresh,

signal to other drivers. The orange reflectors,
positioned on the forward part of the fender,
add to the X3’s sporty design.
s Roof rails, blending harmoniously with
the X3’s design, provide the foundation for
BMW’s (accessory) multi-functional roof
support system.
s Standard equipment
o Optional equipment or included in a Package
