Yes, it’s got an M in its name but it’s not actually an M car. This is something you and I must come to accept together. But besides that, what do you want to know about the 2018 BMW X3 M40i?
I just got out of the M240i a few weeks ago (review coming soon) and I loved that car, mostly because of the engine. The X3 M40i also shares the same 3.0-liter turbocharged straight-six. It is by far a larger and taller car, so I’ll be eager to see how the engine still feels with all the extra bulk added on.
MSRP comes to $54,300, but my test car has options like the premium and executive packages, which means a heated steering wheel, heated seats and additional safety sensors. Then the price comes to $65,045.
