The 2018 BMW X3 will come completely redesign. The company prepares this redesign for some time and it looks like the new model is in the late stage of development. The third generation had been spotted several times and we already have some info about a new model. First of all, it will adopt CLAR modular platform, which debuted last year in 7 Series. Upcoming X5 and X7 models will also ride on this platform. Due to massive use of light materials, the new model will come a little bit larger. This will provide more space inside, better center of gravity and some other benefits. When it comes to styling, we will see new appearance, which will be even more attractive. However, do not expect some radical turnarounds. The Same thing is about the interior, which will besides new design also feature many latest technologies.
