At its core, the BMW X3 configuration comes with a 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline-4 engine, with standard sDrive rear-wheel drive. You have the opportunity to upgrade to the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system. Speed, control, and a smooth ride are guaranteed while you make your way through Lowell, MA.
