2011 BMW X3 M-Sport Package Unveiled

After the world premiere of the 2011 BMW X3 yesterday, the first photos of the 2011 BMW X3 M-Sport Package were unveiled. It is quite unusual that photos are released one year in advance, but it is always nice to have a sneak peak of what the M-Sport Package for the 2nd generation X3 will look like.

Based on these photos, there are various exterior enhancements that bring out the sportiness and aggressiveness of the vehicle. BMW describes the 2011 BMW X3 M-Sport package as follows:

Dynamic and compelling, the M Sports package drives the sporty nature of the BMW X3 to even greater heights. The rich Carbon Black metallic paint finish and powerful 19-inch M light-weight alloy wheel rims set the tone, while the sports suspension tuning delivers the experience.

More Driving tools: the M multifunction leather steering wheel and variable sports steering. The M gear selection lever boasts particularly short throws. In the BMW xDrive35i with standard eight-speed automatic transmission Steptronic, the M leather steering wheel also features gearshift paddles. The sporty suspension settings give you stiffer dampers and deliver precise feedback.

Ergonomically shaped sports seats provide side support against strong lateral forces, such as when cornering at speed. The Pearlpoint cloth-leather upholstery offers a beautifully tactile surface; matching the BMW Individual roof liner, it comes in sleek Anthracite.

With the M Sports package, the side skirts, wheel arches and front and rear aprons are in body colour – for example, the Carbon Black metallic paint finish that is exclusive to the M Sports package. Window surrounds and roof rails are in the high-gloss BMW Individual Shadow Line.

Available from the second quarter of 2011 (subject to change).
