So, let’s delve into what we already know about the highly anticipated 2025 BMW X3 Hybrid.

Design Updates

The 2025 BMW X3 Hybrid reveals an evolutionary design that builds upon the current model. The upcoming generation of the X3 features sleeker, swept-back headlamps and a taller kidney grille, giving it a more assertive and expressive appearance. The design updates seem to be inspired by the third-generation BMW X1 but adapted to suit the larger dimensions of the X3. The overall result is an SUV that exudes confidence and style.

The spy media also confirms the presence of flush-fitting door handles on the next-gen X3 Hybrid, adding a touch of sophistication to its exterior. Additionally, the charging port for the plug-in hybrid system is securely located under a flap on the front left side wall. While it’s unclear if the redesigned model will have DC fast-charging capability, this feature is relatively rare among plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs).

The U.S. launch of the 2025 BMW X3 Hybrid could take place in the second half of 2024, while the new all-electric iX3 is projected to arrive in 2025. Expect the plug-in BMW X3 Hybrid variant’s prices to be in the USD 50,000-55,000 orange

Interior & Features

Inside the 2025 BMW X3 Hybrid, we can expect a cleaner and more elegant design. Drawing inspiration from the BMW iX, the new X3 Hybrid is likely to feature the BMW Curved Display with the BMW Operating System 8 (BMW OS 8)-based eighth-gen BMW iDrive control/operation system display.

This display consists of a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and a 14.9-inch control display, both merged behind a glass surface angled toward the driver. The BMW Curved Display is expected to be a standard feature in the next-gen X3, adding a high-tech touch to the cabin.

According to reports, the 2025 X3 Hybrid will be more premium than its predecessor. It is anticipated to come with standard Comfort Access (passive keyless entry), an ‘Iconic Glow’ exterior, and more sophisticated interior materials. The advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) functions will match those found in the current X5 model.

BMW is leaving no stone unturned to make the final gas-powered X3 generation as attractive as possible to potential buyers. The sporty X3 M50i variant, for example, will include M Sport suspension, distinctive wheels, and M parts as standard, with the option of an adaptive suspension.

BMW X3 Hybrid 2023 Specifications

The BMW X3 Hybrid will be based on an improved version of the current CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform. BMW is committed to reducing CO2 emissions and plans to use sustainably produced aluminum from Rio Tinto’s hydro-powered operations in Canada. This sustainable aluminum will be exclusively used in body components of vehicles at BMW’s Spartanburg plant. This eco-friendly approach demonstrates BMW’s commitment to environmentally conscious manufacturing.

The range of the 2025 X3 Hybrid is expected to include different powertrain options. The xDrive20i variant is likely to feature a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, while

 the xDrive20d will come with the same mild-hybrid system. For higher performance, the M40i variant will likely have a 3.0-liter six-cylinder gasoline engine with mild-hybrid technology, producing around 360 horsepower. There may also be an M40d diesel mild-hybrid variant available in select markets. These engines will be cleaner and meet the stricter Euro 7 emission norms.

The pictures have also revealed that BMW is developing a plug-in hybrid version of the 2025 X3. The next-gen X3 PHEV is expected to offer three different variants, including at least one rear-wheel-drive (RWD) model and two all-wheel-drive (AWD) models. It is rumored that one of these variants will have a pure-electric range of up to 62 miles on the WLTP cycle.
