sDrive30i and xDrive30i

BMW X3 MPG | White Plains, NY

The 30i powertrain of the BMW X3 includes a 2.0L TwinPower turbo I4 engine that produces 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission with sport and manual shift modes.

With this engine, you’ll have two drivetrain options, each of which will affect your BMW X3 MPG numbers as estimated by the EPA:

  • sDrive (front-wheel drive) MPG: 25 city/29 highway
  • xDrive (all-wheel drive) MPG: 24 city/29 highway

As you can see, this powertrain lets you choose between a lightweight front-wheel drive system, called sDrive, or a smart all-wheel drive system, called xDrive. BMW xDrive enhances your stability and traction control by automatically readjusting torque distribution as necessary based on your terrain.

Many local drivers find that this system helps them drive with confidence through any season while still keeping their fuel economy relatively high, especially on the highway.
