Miser the diesel not in every situation of hauling in absolute tonal restraint and good smoothness. In numbers: BBs is 8.5 seconds from 0 to 100, the torque is 380 nm and never and nowhere to charming of 210 km/h are the end of the flagpole. And with a highly ambitious average consumption of 5.6 liters. That are about 15 percent less than in the weaker predecessor unit. Official site: Glenn Dubin, New York City. The 2 l diesel engine is combined with the gentle and fast switching, but with around 2,500 euros rather high-priced 8-speed automatic transmission no more wish remains open. For the first time start-stop with automatic not the higher efficiency. The automatic transmission in the new X 3 is when it comes to consumption of manual six speed gearbox to nothing more.

The reason: For the first time at BMW the start-stop system with automatic transmission can be combined. So far, that failed on the loss of oil pressure when engine is switched off. A fast start was not possible. The BMW engineers with a pressure accumulator have solved this problem, which quickly closes the clutches necessary for the approaching or separates. The four-cylinder now produces 184 HP and can candidly as a 3 on the body tailored evaluated the X. Miser the diesel not in every situation of hauling in absolute tonal restraint and good smoothness.

And with a highly ambitious average consumption of 5.6 liters. The proven, efficiency-enhancing, start stop system there is now for the first time in combination with the finely-tuned 8-speed automatic transmission. So far, that failed on the loss of oil pressure when engine is switched off. A fast start was not possible. The BMW engineers with a pressure accumulator have solved this problem, which quickly closes the clutches necessary for the approaching or separates. More quality a point of criticism for the old X 3 was always that, let’s say, choice of material, not necessarily corresponding to the class of the vehicle. In this regard, there is the new no longer to cavil. When it comes to optics at first sight not very much has happened, the appearance of the material is no comparison. Hard plastic is no trace of, all soft rear fuettert, brushed aluminum looks like, whats it also. Price and launch recap we so: he is beautiful X, larger, more comfortable, more fuel efficient and high-quality, the new BMW 3. Cheaper can be not served with unfortunately. With a starting price of 43,350 Euro (20 d) X 3 continues to the absolute top League. The Audi Q5 is there with 40.550 euros already somewhat less expensive. And who whistles on all-wheel drive, which can enter 36,900 EUR in the Mercedes GLK. Fairness should be but pointed out that the latter with 4MATIC then but to approximately 1,300 euros more is than the X 3, is to buy it from the beginning of December. by Christian Zacharnik, autonet.at
