2025 BMW X3 M50i Looks to be Larger than BMW X1. Are you ready for BMW X3? BMW is working on the latest generations of X3, as evidenced by a camouflaged prototype of the SUV captured by spy photographers for the first time during transport.
While the fourth-generation X3 is presumably still in the works, the prototype appears to be wearing its production body. The new model seems to be a larger version of the recently revealed 2023 BMW X1, with similarly shaped headlights and a familiar window line.
2025 BMW X3 Exterior Design
BMW’s signature connected kidney grille doesn’t appear much more significant than on the current X3, which is a good thing; in fact, we suspect it may be slightly smaller, at least on this early prototype. The profile is still recognizable, but it incorporates the latest BMW design language with cleaner surfacing, pronounced front and rear fenders, and slightly boxy wheel arches, as seen on the predecessor.
A new set of alloy wheels with a more complex iteration of the classic five-spoke design can also be seen. The taillights appear to be dummy units at the back, concealing the model’s LED signature. We anticipated that they would be smaller than in the current X3, mimicking the angular shape of the X1. Still, the quad exhaust tailpipes with a round shape and the extended rear spoiler point to a performance-oriented variant. According to our sources, the pictured prototype is the M40i variant, which is a step down from the full-fledged X3 M.
2025 BMW X3 M50i Specification’s Prediction
The new 2025 X3’s specifications are unknown, but we believe it will share its architecture with the 3-Series. The SUV will be available in ICE, plug-in hybrid, and fully electric (iX3) variants, similar to the current model but with cleaner and more efficient powertrains. We believe there will be an updated version of the current X3’s CLAR design, which means rear-wheel drive with all-wheel drive as an option.
Look for turbocharged 2.0-litre inline-4 and 3.0-litre inline-6 engines with mild-hybrid technology as standard. Plug-in hybrid powertrains should also be available, possibly in the next X3 M. This is consistent with BMW’s strategy of providing numerous options for each model. However, we suspect this will be the last X3 with an ICE under the hood before the Bavarian automaker goes fully electric.

The current third-generation BMW X3 was introduced in 2017 and will be refreshed in 2021. This means that a new model could be unveiled as early as 2024, possibly as a 2025MY, indicating a seven-year lifecycle typical of BMW products. The X3 will almost certainly be followed by a coupe-style BMW X4, as will the performance-focused M-branded models, which will almost certainly live on to the next generation with a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2025 BMW X3 M50i Release Date
The redesigned BMW x3 2025 will be available with various gasoline, diesel, and plug-in hybrid powertrains, joining the zero-emissions iX3. The coupe-SUV version of the next-generation X4 is codenamed “G46” and has an SOP date of December 2025. A later model, the X4 M (G98), will be introduced.
2025 BMW X3 Production Project
The redesigned X3 will be manufactured at BMW Group’s Spartanburg, South Carolina plant, which also produces the current X3. The electric version could be built at a BMW Group plant currently under construction in Debrecen, Hungary, which will produce Neue Klasse vehicles. As said above, this car may come in early 2024 or 2025. There isn’t clear information about the latest BMW X3, but some people predict that the price will be higher than the previous generation due to some new features inside the car. Fact BMW sold 75,858 examples in the United States alone in 2021. It makes BMW the most popular vehicle in the country.
