We are all getting geared up for the debut of the third generation of the 2018 BMW X3 G01. In fact, earlier in the week, the upcoming model has spotted in Germany, adding more information to the previews that are already making everyone filled with excitement.
We’ve already seen some cool prototypes of this model, including the high performance X3 M Model.
But the latest photos that have been seen aren’t released by any spy photo vendors. They have been released by BMW itself, and they reveal photos of the X3 during its testing. These pictures seem to be a teaser of sorts, making us anticipate the release of the series even more.
2018 BMW X3 G01 – Testing at Snow-Covered Arjeplog
The temperatures of the frigid testing were at minus twenty degree Celsius and the testing was done in snow-covered Arjeplog, which is situated at a distance of 56 kilometers south of the polar circle. One of the reasons of testing in this extreme cold is to make sure that the car functions normally in even extremely cold temperatures and can withstand tough environments.
The engineers are also focused on making sure that the dynamic behavior of the cars is fine-tuned by testing them on the ice frozen lakes around the Arctic circle.
From the pictures, the design seems to very similar to that of the latest BMW X1. There have been some changes in the design with the more muscular and bigger in size than the older versions.
There have been a few subtle changes in the series, to make it more stable than its predecessors. In keeping with the new pedestrian safety regulations, the 2018 BMW X3 G01 has received an adjusted front design which is now a little more upright that the series that is currently in the market. The rear part has a one-piece tailgate and a slightly lower roofline than the ones that exist.

The car will also be roomier, wider and longer on the inside, making seating space more comfortable and enjoyable. The people will also get new engine options, such as the B58 3.0 litre turbo inline six.
The exterior design will also have changed slightly as mentioned above, along with an increased trunk capacity and with the presence of even more high-tech and advanced safety features; this is another series that is poised to become a very popular one.
According to the latest gossip, the production of 2018 BMW X3 G01 will take place in the United States. The exact location is said to be at the Spartanburg factory in USA.
