For the 2022 season the BMW X3 sports activity vehicle has a facelift to give it a sportier look.

The BMW kidney grille now has a single-piece frame. Below the headlights, vertical air intakes arranged in a triangular interpretation frame the front bumper.

The BMW X3 xDrive30e also bears an “electrified by i” emblem on the front guards and blue ring sits around all the BMW logos, including those on the wheels.

The rear, black borders give the lights a more precise appearance, while the narrower light graphic now includes a three-dimensionally modelled pincer contour and horizontal turn signals integrated in a filigree style.

The newly designed and painted underbody protection combines with the new design, flush-fitting free-form tailpipe trims that are larger and sportier in appearance.

The emphasis on horizontal lines, including in the concave area at the lower end of the tailgate, contributes to the clean impression of the rear.
