Meet the Magnificent, Motorsport-Inspired 2020 BMW X3 M


Discover the All-New, First-Ever, M-Powered SAV

Although it’s technically in the SUV class—or more accurately, the Sports Activity Vehicle® class—the 2020 BMW X3 M can hold its own just as well on a racetrack as it does chauffeuring the kids to their soccer game, thank you very much. In fact, one gets the sense that the X3 M and its upgraded X3 M Competition sibling were actually designed for those soccer-playing kids who’ve grown up and are now ready for some serious power and performance—the no-holds-barred, in-your-face driving thrill that until now hasn’t been the typical SUV experience.

At BMW of Columbia, our team welcomes the opportunity to show you all the exciting features in the new 2020 BMW X3 M and let you discover its amazing ability for yourself: just call, come by or schedule a test-drive online today.

The Dynamics Are in the Details

It’s no accident the X3 M is systematically breaking all the usual boundaries of traditional SUVs. With a forged crankshaft and additional oil coolers, its all-new, distinctive, inline 6-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology is intentionally built for motorsport performance. Offering a jaw-dropping maximum output of 503 horsepower, this extraordinary machine can rocket from 0-60 MPH in four seconds. And the BMW X3 M looks the part as well, with motorsport-inspired M Quad Exhaust, M Roof Spoiler, and aggressive bumper air intakes.

Plus, not only does that unique M Sport exhaust system add a nice touch to the sporty design, it boosts the already powerful engine performance and gives the 6-cylinder bi-turbo engine a beefier sound—all the better to further command everyone’s attention when it streaks by.

Ultimate Control of the Ultimate Drive

Anticipating that these singular niceties wouldn’t satisfy the truly performance-obsessed, BMW created an innovative M xDRIVE with a reinforced drivetrain system that works with the Dynamic Stability Control and Active M Differential to maximize traction. Or in layman’s terms: if you want even more performance—and control—when you’re out on the open road, simply switch over to the 4WD Sport mode and you’ll instantly see an increase in both, compliments of the Adaptive M Suspension. Ready to slide back into easy Comfort mode? Done.

Speaking of instant results: they’re a given with BMW X3 M’s 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, which provides instantaneous and flawless shifts in both automatic and manual modes. Naturally, even this feature can be optimized for the ultimate overachievers, thanks to a Drivelogic button that effortlessly tweaks the shift characteristics for quicker, crisper gear changes.

Time to Head Inside

With so much excitement going on in every other area of the 2020 BMW X3 M, it’s understandable if the stunning interior isn’t explored immediately. Once you slide into the exclusive M Sport seats with adjustable backrests and side support, however, you’re totally focused on all the extraordinary offerings inside. Like the standard 12.3″ screen of the M Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster that displays key driving info and changes designs when you switch between drive modes. Or the M-specific Head-up Display which conveniently projects speed and navigation details and much more directly onto the windshield. Of course, the X3 M’s standard Harman Kardon® Surround Sound System with 16 speakers, 600-watt digital amplifier and an individually adjustable 9-channel equalizer is designed to hold your attention for hours as well.

Without a doubt, the new 2020 BMW X3 M is a one-of-a-kind driving machine that’s best explored—and admired—in person. Stop by our BMW dealer in Columbia and test-drive one today.
