Last week BMW officially took the wraps off the F25 X3 for the international press and one thing within their presentation caught our eye. We all know the new X3 has grown but without getting the numbers in front of us it’s hard to understand what that really means. And even with the raw data sometimes it’s hard to visualize the change.
That’s where these slides help. The first of these size charts (from the official BMW presentation) give us our best look at how the X3 has grown from the first generation to the present in every direction.The second (after the break) shows us how it stacks up against the new X1 and X5.
The first slide shows that the new X3 really isn’t all that bigger than the original. Yes it’s grown but it’s certainly still an X3 as we’ve known it. The second slide gives us a look at the three sizes of SAV BMW offers. And surprise surprise the new X3 lies right in the middle of the X1 and the X5.
