2017 BMW X6 The Only News You Need

Despite falling a bit short in terms of utility, the new 2017 BMW X6 is engaging to drive and is seen as a cross between a high-end coupe and an SUV. Some of the highlights that define it include a comfortable and whisper-quiet ride quality, potent engines, ample storage, and a top-quality interior laden with upscale material and technologies.

The BMW X6 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017 for the USA market.

Quick Summary

According to BMW, several updates and changes should be expected to sport the new X6 especially on its interior and exterior facets. Performance wise, however, the new model remains pretty much the same with the same power and torque as before.

Some might argue that the BMW X6 was arguably the first vehicle that changed the way SUVs work in relation to utility. A while ago, crossover SUVs were meant to haul both people and cargo, were-boxy-looking, and had larger dimensions. Now in its second-generation, the X6, redefined the whole concept but falls short in its fundamental aspect – utility. This is quite apparent especially if you want to bring pets or pets along.

Good Things Last Long

Despite these apparent shortcomings, there’s still nothing like it on the market. It is downright athletic, and boasts of a daring exterior design. The lack of ample roomy interior accommodations can be attributed to the sloping roof line, which cuts substantial headroom especially for the backseat passengers.

Breathtaking Interior And Even Better Performance

BMW says the reason it increased the rows to a maximum of three was because of customer demand. This tells you that the BMW X6 is an appealing and compelling crossover, its downsides notwithstanding. To wit, the 2017 BMW X6 interior furnishings are simply breathtakingly appealing, as are its performance specs.

Possible Alternatives

But the BMW X6 2017 isn’t the only vehicle that has received refreshments in its class. Other alternatives worth your while include the similarly appealing Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe. It is flattery, elegant, sophisticated, and undoubtedly a performance mogul on its own right.

Bu even in its current form, the new model is still a pace setter in its class courtesy of features such as a potent engine, a well-equipped interior, a sharp and responsive handling and steering, a laudable ride quality, and stout brakes that bring it to halt in a couple of seconds.

Lack Of Originality Is Not A Problem For The BMW

There’s no denying the fact that the automotive segment has grown in leaps and bounds over the last couple of decades. This has resulted in a significant rise in the number of vehicles being offered for sale every year. Traditional market leaders and new entrants alike have hard to constantly innovate and come up with exclusive ideas that can result in making their vehicles retain their competitive edge.

But even with such an inhospitable competition mounted by its peers, BMW seems to be unperturbed judging by its meteoric rise in the number of vehicles sold each year. In this context, the new 2017 BMW M4 is the perfect illustration of how well an automaker can build a high-performance luxury coupe and convertible with minimal or no concessions at all. For starters, the new BMW M4 is a high-performance version of the BMW 4 Series.

What Is It All About?

The “M” is the distinction between the two models and features a 425-hp – generating turbocharged 3.0L six-cylinder engine that mates to a slick-shifting six-speed manual or an M-DCT. With all this power under its belt, expect a 0-60 mph acceleration in just under 4.0 seconds.

2017 BMW M4 front angle, headlights and grille

Other components that draw the line of distinction between the regular 4 Series and the BMW M model include carbon-ceramic brakes, aluminum suspension underpinnings, staggered-width 18-inch wheels, sportier carbon-fiber trim, and active rear differential. Again, the BMW M4 2017 boasts of nicer interior materials, and M logo badging. Performance wise, you’ll notice that the M4 brakes hard, corners tenaciously, and accelerates ferociously.

The bottom line is the 2017 BMW M4. It is a cool car that arguably deserves your attention especially if you’re shopping for a race-ready sports car. Well, we’d be lying if we said the M4 is the only fine choice available, in stark contrast however, the segment is home to tons of other great choices. These include the Lexus RC F, Ford Shelby GT350 Coupe, Chevrolet Corvette, and the rakishly-styled Mercedes-Benz AMG C-Class Coupe.

When Is The 2017 BMW M4 Going To Be Released And For How Much?

According to some whispers in the four-passenger high-performance segment, the new BMW M4 release date should be expected sometime in the second half of 2017. Price details are still under wraps as it is too early to start speculation, but this hasn’t stopped some of the finest industry’s pundits from offering the possibilities. One such theory that makes better sense intimates that the BMW M4 price will start from around $65,700. Leasing is available too.

2017 BMW M4 Exterior Changed Mostly In Color

2017 BMW M4 exterior, silver color, headlights and alloy wheels

The exterior hasn’t changed a bit apart from the several paint colors that are rumored to be added to the existing color palette. Otherwise, the exterior profile remains pretty much the same as that of the previous model. Some of the features to expect include exclusive exterior body panels, a sport-tuned suspension system, eighteen-inch alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, and a sport body kit.

Total Rework Of The 2017 BMW M4 Interior

Don’t get us wrong however, as the current model’s interior is still a masterpiece by conventional standards. Accessories to expect include a dual-zone automatic climate control, driver memory settings, an 8.8-inch central display screen, Bluetooth connectivity, a heated 10-way power front seats, and smartphone app connectivity.

All You Need To Know About The New 2017 BMW i3

The new 2017 BMW i3 is a luxury-brand that offers some sportiness and versatility in a small electric vehicle package. It is practical, surprisingly, given its pocket-size dimensions. Be my guest today on this informative piece about the BMW i3 release date, interior accessories, exterior pictures, and price.

Black Sheep Of The Family?

The BMW i3 2017 makes a strong proposition for buyers looking for great exterior visibility, passenger space, impressive maneuverability, big cargo area, and interior refinement. However, it falls short on range and performance, especially in comparison to regular plug-in hybrids.

2017 BMW i3 rear view, taillights and alloy wheels

Touted as the dwarf of the BMW family, it comes in pocket-size dimensions but lurking inside it is a versatile, family-friendly vehicle that offers a lot more to like, besides its cute looks. Cute looks might be an overstatement but it all depends on how you decide to look at it. It is a back-to-basic electric vehicle that operates on both electricity and gasoline, with gasoline only kicking in once all the electric charge has been depleted.

Best Driving Experience?

It offers an impressive handling, acceleration, and precision that is unparalleled in its EV class, while comfortable cradling up four passengers in its avant-garde and luxurious cabin. Don’t however expect to occasionally head to long cross-country trips, as the miniscule i3 is designed to operate for short-to medium-length trips. Whereas BMW puts its range at an inspiring 81 miles on full charge, the range is prone to change if the i3 is running on different terrains. Again, temperature and driving style may also constitute disparities in its range.

2017 BMW i3 front angle, auto show, headlights and grille

If Range Is A Problem…

For those yawning for more range, there’s the i3 REX model that stretches a distance of up to 150 miles. Range for the electric-only mode takes a cut by 8 miles to a total of 72 miles due to the added weight of a bigger gasoline generator. Customer reviews of the previous model said the 2017 BMW i3 was a bit buzzy whilst on the road. The exact cause of this, we don’t know. At least yet.

Rivals hot on its heels include the Ford Focus Electric, Nissan Leaf, Mercedes B250e, and the Volkswagen e-Golf. True, the BW i3 may face an uphill task in trying to make its way up the segment’s ladder, however, its combination of easy athleticism, daring style, EV functionality, and an available extended range make it a distinct proposition.

2017 BMW i3 Release Date and Price?

2017 BMW i3 release date

Latest news has it that the new BMW i3 2017 release date should be expected sometime the next fall. Pricing information is under wraps for now, as it is too early to speculate. However, our moles say that the base model will probably cost around $42,000.

New BMW i3 Exterior Looks Like…

The exterior returns with sharp lines and body creases than before, at least judging from the spy pictures we have of the model. The grille and air intakes have slightly been redesigned, so have the taillights and the headlights. The color palette returns unchanged, however. Other exterior features include nineteen-inch wheels, automatic wipers, LED lighting, and optional 20-inch wheels.

What About The Interior?

The interior accommodations is cavernous and refined just like before. The dashboard layout is driver-centric. Accessories available include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, HD and satellite radio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 6.5” central screen. Heated manually-adjustable front seats, an auxiliary audio jack, a navigation system, auto-dimming mirrors, and cruise control. Others include an upgraded interior upholstery, keyless ignition and entry, adaptive cruise control, BMW’s Online and Apps services, and a navigation system.

Can You Afford The New 2017 BMW X3? Do You Need To?

For 2017, the BMW X3 returns with multiple changes and redesigns. The X3 was among the first models that BMW offered in the mid-size SUV segment. With its first debut taking place in 2003, the X3 quickly gained popularity thanks to the robust agility, premium ambience, and sporty dynamics it offered. First forward to 2017 and the X3 is still the go-to compact luxury SUV for most shoppers looking for a strong performance, responsive handling, top-notch crash test scores, luxurious and high-quality cabin, and fuel efficiency. Read on to get insightful info pertaining the 2017 X3 MSRP pricing estimates, release date, and redesigns.

2017 BMW X3 side angle, white color, alloy wheels

What To Expect

While the BMW X3 may not qualify as the newest vehicle in its class, it remains a top choice for anyone looking for a practical and luxury compact luxury SUV. For 2017, buyers should expect the following: an upgraded navigation system available on the iDrive interface, and optional Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity, and wireless charging. Also, the X3 xDrive35i gains a power lumbar adjustment, keyless entry and ignition, and satellite radio as standard features and accessories.

The Best In Its Class?

When you come to look at it, especially in terms of freshness, it’s pretty easy to conclude that the BMW X3 is one to defy expectations. It’s typical for a car to lose its appeal when it enters its seventh year on the market particularly when that car doesn’t get a full redesign. And more often than not, the differences between a fresh offering and the outdated one are no-brainer. Well, the BMW X3 defies all of these typical assumptions and cruises into the new model year with confidence. If this isn’t a magic spell then what is!

2017 BMW X3 exterior, overhead view

But even as you ponder whether or not it’s a magic spell or not, here’s what you should know: the 2017 BMW X3 is the most spacious, most practical, and most fun to drive SUV available on the market. Furthermore, its array of engines are the best-in-class in terms of performance and fuel economy – two virtues that more often than not are mutually exclusive. Then there’s the cabin, which comes stocked with up-to-date technology, high-quality materials, and a driver-centric cockpit design.

Cheap Or Expensive?

Well, certain compromises have to be made at the end of the day in order to come up with a vehicle as good as the 2017 BMW X3. One that stands atop the rest is the price. It doesn’t come cheap! You’ll have to part away with a minimum of $38,950 for the X3 sDrive28i SUV – without options I should add. But you’ll quickly realize the value equation isn’t son lopsided when you factor in such things as overall quality, sophisticated driving dynamics, and practicality.

Sporty Nature

More often than not, the “sport” portion of the SUV is quietly ignored and left to wither, while more emphasis is offered for the “utility” part. While we can’t confidently say that the BMW X5 offers a sporty driving feel the same way a sporty car would offer, it manages to integrate the sportiness virtue in its more dynamic road feel character.

The result is a vehicle that handles and steers around corners with precision, greater than what you can find on the rest of its class. Those who crave for an even crazier performance can check out the 2017 BMW X5 M. The “M” treatment offers the distinction. Its review is however offered elsewhere on our blog.

Actual Performance

When we come to the performance, the 2017 BMW X5 xDrive50i offers a 4.4L turbocharged engine behemoth that puts out an incredible output that BMW estimates to be around a walloping 445 horsepower. 0-60 mph takes a blistering 4.7 seconds – an impressive acceleration considering it seats up to five people. The X5 M – the higher performance version – takes the performance to a whole new level with its 0-60 mph taking sub-4 seconds thanks to the 567-horsepower offered beneath its skin.

In addition to the added horsepower, the “M” treatment offers, the X5 M also distinguishes itself with features such as unique exterior trim, an adaptive sport suspension system, 21-inch wheels, massive breaks, and body roll control. Taking into consideration that it is a people hauler, there’re a few downsides however. They include a very sensitive gas pedal, a stiff ride quality, and lack of third-row seating available on the X5 model. But then again, no other vehicle in this neck of the woods offers three rows of seating. Rival that take on the BMW X5 2017 include the Mercedes-AMG GLE63, Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR, and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.

Do We Have A Release Date For 2017 BMW X5?
