BMW Makes Two North American Premieres and New Technology at 2010 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey – The all-new BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle® and BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe will make their North American debuts at the Los Angeles Auto Show November 19-28. The all-new BMW X3 boasts enhanced dynamics, ride comfort, interior space and versatility. The BMW Concept 6 Series Coupe is a design study for a premium-class 2+2-seater and is the embodiment of a passion for aesthetics and dynamics. Also previewed will be BMW ConnectedDrive, which offers new innovations and functions that connect the driver and vehicle with the wider world.

The All-New BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle

In 2004, BMW introduced a new concept to the market: the small, premium Sports Activity Vehicle with all-road capability and unparalleled driving dynamics. This first generation BMW X3 became a best seller in the BMW line…both in the United States and in Europe. The new second generation BMW X3 builds on the success of the original by developing its core competencies while adding new technology to establish new benchmarks for agility, efficiency and comfort. The new BMW X3 will be produced in an expansion of the BMW Spartanburg, South Carolina plant and is expected to arrive in US BMW Centers by the end of 2010.

Exterior Design

The design of the new BMW X3 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 sweeping 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 BMW SAV design.
