X3 Handles Whatever Winter Sends Your Way

With a whopping 8 inches of ground clearance, up to 355 horsepower and available xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, the sporty BMW X3 Sport Activity Vehicle is able to handle whatever winter might throw your way. Whether that just involves a weekly run to the big box store, taking the kids to soccer games or going over the river and through the woods to grandma’s house, the X3 offers the interior room, performance and sophistication that demanding drivers crave. Take a look at the X3 inventory and take a test drive when you visit Chapman BMW in Chandler.

Room to Spread Out

With the 60/40 folding rear seats up in place, the X3 can be the most popular choice in the office carpool with plenty of room for five adults. Put the seats down and it becomes a sophisticated cargo hauler, with 62.7 cubic feet of room for that new set of end tables, big screen TV or year’s supply of paper towels. Add in the factory trailer hitch and you can pull a light trailer or add a wide variety of accessories from the BMW catalog.

Work the Paddle Shifters

Every BMW X3 comes with a set of steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters to tempt you into channeling your inner LeMans driver. You’re perfectly free to leave the shifters alone and let the 8-speed Steptronic transmission take you seamlessly through the gears, maximizing the performance and efficiency from each power range. At your whim, feel free to try and outdo the computer programmed transmission, clicking through the gears as you straighten out the curves on an abandoned mountain road. Choose the 30i model and you’ll be commanding 248 horses from the TwinPower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Opt for the M40i and the horsepower goes to 355, with 369 pound-feet of torque at your disposal. The top speed on this model is recommended for track driving only, at a blistering 155 mph.

Three Different Body Styles

When you examine the X3 inventory at Chapman BMW in Chandler, pay attention to the three different available body styles. The xLine has a satin aluminum appearance with 18-inch Y-spoke wheels. The luxury model adds a little more shine to your drive with high-gloss chrome accents liberally applied from the grill all the way to the exhaust. A SensaTec dash delivers a little touch of sophistication to the interior of this model. The M Sport X3 was built for racing, featuring double spoke M wheels, a shadowy exterior trim and high-gloss roof rails. No matter how you build it, the BMW X3 is the Ultimate Driving Machine that is able to handle whatever transportation needs might come its way.
