The design of the new 2012 BMW X3, for sale in Rochelle Park, conveys elegance, agility and ruggedness. Up front, the forward-slanting BMW kidney grille and large headlight assembly combine with a powerful-looking front apron and hood-boasting six contour lines that sweep down to meet at the kidney grill, giving the X3 a bold presence.
The twin round headlights combined with the round fog lamps form the triangular light pattern that is characteristic of the BMW SAV design. The upper edge of the headlight assembly sports an accentuating chrome trim, creating the focused design representative of BMW vehicles.
BMW’s signature “Corona Rings” are again illuminated to function as the daytime running lights. When equipped with the optional Xenon headlights, the Corona Rings and daytime running lights are illuminated by bright white LEDs.
A generous and versatile spatial concept, high-grade materials and a characteristic three-dimensional surface design provide the interior of the new BMW X3 with a modern, premium ambience and intelligent functionality. The horizontal lines of the instrument panel accentuate the width of the interior.
NJ BMW X3 owners will enjoy a driver-orientated cockpit, a poster child of BMW design. This is further cemented by the asymmetrically designed center console. The Central Display of the optional navigation system with fourth generation BMW iDrive is harmoniously integrated into the instrument panel.
