BMW has unveiled the redesigned 2025 BMW X3, which gets more aggressive styling that features a look that designed with the same design language as the smaller X1 and flagship XM.

The new X3 is now larger than before, since it’s length as increased by 1.3-inches, it’s 1.1-inches wider and sits 1.0-inch lower. At the front there’s a new take on BMW’s kidney grille, which features vertical and diagonal lines that will definitely make it stand out. Fortunately the M50 model gets a more subtle grille. The outline of the grille is illuminated on the M50 model, while it’s optional on the xDrive30 version. The M50 also stands out with a more aggressive front fascia with larger air intakes.

Inside there’s a large curved display that features the digital gauge cluster and a touchscreen that runs BMW’s latest software, BMW iDrive 9. The new system allows for more of the controls to be accessed via the touchscreen, which has allowed for a more simplified interior. The new system supports apps for video streaming, music from platforms like Spotify, podcasts, news, and in-car gaming. The new navigation system features 3D and satellite views.

Other new tech features include a new Traffic Jam Assistant that allows for hands-free driving below 40 mph on certain highways. You can also move it in and out of a tight parking spot, while you stand outside the X3, using the My BMW app.

The X3 gets a flat-bottom steering wheel, while the gear selector is now a similar system that we’ve seen in the X1 and X2 models, on the center console.
