BMW has explained that the testing procedure of the 2018 X3 was done just 56 kilometers (34.7 miles) South of the Polar Circle, which is a cold place. There’s a small town over there, and it is called Arjeplog. An abundance of snow characterizes it, and temperatures are low enough to make a popsicle impossible to enjoy.
The Bavarian brand has explained that these conditions are perfect for developing and calibrating the electronic and mechanical elements of the new X3, which will come with the company’s xDrive permanent all-wheel-drive system.
The ice, snow and sleet providing the perfect conditions for the engineers to monitor the vehicles dynamics and driver assist systems, such as Stability Control and Traction Control.
The latest gossip indicates BMW will unveil the new X3 in August prior to a public debut a month later at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Production will take place in United States at the Spartanburg factory as well as in South Africa at the Rosslyn plant.
