BMW Korea, the South Korean unit of German automaker BMW Group, on Thursday introduced the latest version of the BMW X3 in South Korea.
BMW Korea said the New X3 is a "sport activity vehicle" that offers the comfort and driving experience of a sedan, but is perfect for off-road use.
"The New X3 comes with a new, refined design and performance that are suitable for a second-generation car as it continues to maintain the unique agility, safety and comfort of a BMW vehicle while also demonstrating its off-road capabilities," the company said.
The vehicle comes with a V4, 2.0-liter turbo diesel engine that produces maximum horsepower of 184 and maximum torque of 38.8 kilogram-meters.
Still, the vehicle's all-new eight-speed automatic transmission enables high fuel efficiency of 17.2 kilometers per liter, according to BMW Korea.
The local price of the New X3 has been set at 59.9 million won (US$53,670), inclusive of value-added tax. (Yonhap News)
