-BMW hasn't totally redone the X3 since it came out, but that's just change at the Paris 2010 show where the second gen vehicle debuted.
And well at first glance it doesn't seem real different, but notice those two feature lines on the side of the body that dipped down toward the front, a distinctive and quick way to spot the new one.
Under the similar skin though, rear seat room has improved quite a bit, headroom too, which a lot of X3 owners howled about.
And overall the vehicle's been pulled an inch or three in every direction and its now closer to the original X5 in mass.
There will be a 35i model with a Turbo in line 6 and a 28i version with a non-Turbo motors similar to the three series.
Those motors both spin the input shaft of an eight speed automatic now.
Moving up market a bit, the new X3 can be fitted with active suspension, dynamic drive control, and BMW's new iPad headrest mounts which aren't all that techie but should be real popular.
But stuff like night vision and head up display will remain the domain of its higher end BMW.
