BMW X3 Towing Capacity & Weight


The BMW X3 is a mid-size SUV and has always been highly competitive - even among the premium brands. The Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLC set the standard in terms of quality and comfort but the BMW X3 holds its own against these big players. The latest model of the X3 is visually only slightly changed. It now has standard 18-inch tires, the front is steeper and the engine is a bit more powerful. It size proportions have hardly changed, but because it is now on the platform of the large sedans, it has become seven centimeters longer and almost two centimeters wider and higher.

Is BMW X3 good for towing?
Eight engines are currently available: four petrol engines with an output of 184 hp in the xDrive 20i up to a crazy 510 hp in the X3M Competition, three diesels, whose spectrum ranges from 190 hp in the xDrive 20d to 340 hp (M40d) and the 292 hp -Plug-in.

How much can a BMW X3 tow?
If you are looking for the towing capacity for a BMW X3 car then we're here to help. The towing capacity is a term used to describe the maximum weight of a trailer a BMW x3 car can tow.
