The 2020 X3 M40 has increased horsepower from 355 to 382. The torque remains the same at 369. This is an amazing SAV. This is the best bang for your buck on any BMW.

I love my 2020 BMW X3 M40i!

I love my 2020 BMW X3 M40i! WOW! I was amazed in all the changes that were made in 2 years from my 2018 model. The turbocharged six-cylinder engine went from 382 HP to 355 horsepower, the suspension upgrades, the larger steering wheel was again in the 2020. For some reason it was not in the 2018. The pickup, the starting & stopping, the smoother transition in the changing of gears; all made this the car I wanted. The car already had the standard driver assistance features to include a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, driver drowsiness monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and traffic sign recognition. I added the additional safety features to include a head-up display, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, front and rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, parallel park assist, and a surround-view parking camera system. To me it was worth the additional cost. The changes in the infotainment system, the touch screen display is larger, the Apple Carplay, the wireless charging. I paid extra for the Adaptive M Suspension. I live in West Virginia & the curvy mountainous road here make that a needed feature. I had it in my 2018 and loved it. What a change in the M40I in 2 years. I traded in a 2018 M40i with less than 17,000 miles on it. That car had issues almost from the day I picked it up at the factory.

This article is slightly wrong. The 2020 M40i has an upgraded B58 engine that packs 382HP compared to 355 in the 2018-2019 models. It is noticeably faster and pulls a lot harder. It also has some of the over engineered crackles and pops replaced with more natural sounding and more subtle burbles and less “look at me” feel.

Well as much as I love my vehicle it has sat in the dealership now for 2 months waiting for suspension parts that need replacement due to hitting a massive pot hole. I know this COVID-19 may have something to do with shipping but 2 months now is very disappointing to say the least.

X3 M40i is a Blast!

I have owned a half dozen sport utes and crossovers over the years. It is an amazing combination of great styling, good ride characteristics, excellent handling, powerful performance, and excellent fuel mileage. The torque of the turbocharged 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine is addictive! I specified the 19 inch tires and wheels on mine, for a more compliant ride. I love this vehicle, and highly recommend it.
