New BMW X3 and X4 2020 pricing and specs detailed: Mercedes-Benz GLC rivals get dearer

The M Competition is the only X3 variant that’s avoided a price rise.

BMW Australia has adjusted the pricing of its two mid-size SUVs, the X3 wagon and X4 coupe, by up to $4000.

The M Competition flagships of both models are the only versions that go unchanged. The X3 and X4 ranges have otherwise risen from $3000 to $4000.

As such, the former now stretches from $68,900 to $157,900 plus on-road costs, while the latter covers $80,900 to $164,900 (see full pricing tables below).

Speaking to CarsGuide, a BMW Australia spokesperson confirmed no changes have been made to standard specification, as the company “constantly reviews its pricing structure, factoring in the exchange rate, inflation and changes to material costs”.

The X3’s sDrive20i and xDrive30i variants are therefore still motivated by the same 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, albeit in two states of tune: 135kW/300Nm and 185kW/350Nm respectively.

The xDrive20d has a 140kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder unit, while the xDrive30d upgrades to a 195kW/620Nm 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine.

Meanwhile, the M40i and M Competition muscle in with a pair of 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder petrol units: a 285kW/500Nm single-turbo and a 375kW/600Nm twin-turbo.

The X4 is a mid-size SUV with coupe style. The X4 is a mid-size SUV with coupe style.

The X4’s xDrive20i, xDrive30i, M40i and M Competition versions have the same engines as their X3 counterparts.

It’s worth noting, however, the X3 sDrive20i is rear-wheel drive, while the X4 xDrive20i features BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which is also used by all of the other aforementioned variants.

Either way, an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission is standard.
