2022 BMW X3 vs 2021 BMW X3

Serving Atlanta, GA

The X3 is BMW’s compact luxury crossover SUV, a top pick among many drivers in the Atlanta area for almost two decades. In 2018, the X3 broke into its third generation with extensive improvements from end to end, and BMW has continued to enhance the X3 with additional enhancements since that time. Are you trying to decide between buying the 2021 BMW X3 or the 2022 version? A closer look at their many differences will help you to make an intelligent selection.


The X3 is a sports activity vehicle that is designed to deliver a fantastic experience behind the wheel. For 2021 and 2022, the X3 carries the same base-level engine. This is a 248-horsepower TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. The 2022 BMW X3 M40i now comes with a six-cylinder powertrain with mild-hybrid equipment and a superior starter-generator.


When you compare the 2021 X3 to the 2022 version next to each other at our Atlanta-area auto dealership, you will see that the headlights and taillights are defining features. The headlights have a scalloped, elongated look that is easy on the eyes. At the rear, the taillights have a key-like quality that makes them easy to spot on the road. Both model years have lower-body molding and horizontal definition through the sides. They also have keyless entry, LED lights, heated side mirrors, a sunroof, and other equipment.


Before you wrap up your comparison of the 2021 and 2022 BMW X3 crossover SUVs, you need to take a look inside their cabins. These models both come with the Driving Assistance Package, but this package now has Traffic Jam Assist for the 2022 model year. The other included and available features are unchanged. These include the iDrive 7.0 system, heated seats, an auto climate control system, a high-end sound system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 12.3-inch display screen, premium materials, a cloud-based navigation system, and more.
