2016 X3 Production and Model Year Changes

It is my understanding that the 2016 BMW X3 will go into production in April, 2015 and arrive at dealer lots in June 2015. Is this correct? Also, is there available information concerning changes from the 2015 X3 to the 2016 X3?

Be patient and wait for the '16 Ordering/Pricing info thread to post. Should be anyway now. That thread will show any changes to X3 as well as packages changes, etc..

Hi,

I'm new to the forum and am looking into getting the 2016 x3 in the fall.

I saw the 2016 Canadian pricing guide and options list for the X3.

- Small price increase (I think around $600)
- Back up camera added to the base X3
- Premium essential package price has increased, however Navigation is now included
- Premium enhanced gets HUD
- M Sport package price has gone up but includes the the M performance package for 2016.

Overall, no major changes. I wish Navigation was a stand alone option, as I don't have much use for Navi.

My understanding; no significant changes in 2016 - big changes happen in model year 2017.

That's model year 2018, which begins in the 2017 calendar year, 2+ years out at this point.

Looked the same to me.

I was hoping for a 16 graphite x3, but space grey carries over for the greys.

I hoped for that too. Funny how x4,5 have dark graphite and 3 series has mineral grey, but no dark grey for x3.

X3 28ix

I was at my dealer earlier today and discussed pricing/changes between 2015 and 2016 MSport and XLine.

Per my USA dealer, $100 increase in the base price for 2016.

2015 M Sports may no longer be ordered from the factory- Yes: XLine and No Line.

Production commences in April and delivery in June for 2016s.

I priced out a loaded 2016 M Sport and it prices out at MSRP for $1750 LESS. No concierage option and upgraded wheels option- otherwise a loaded M Sport. I left the dealership with a quote in writing from a place they know me- bought 2 cars from there already.

Why? I don't know. Maybe, just a strange quirk in the way BMW has configured the packages for 2016 versus 2015. With less options the savings would be less.

No $ incentive from BMW USA for ordering a 2015 X3. How does this make sense? It's cheaper ordering a 2016 than ordering a 2015. Sales guy and Sales Manager said they were in a meeting earlier in week and said they were surprised by this too. Comment from sales guy was that BMW is having a great year selling vehicles especially in Asia.

You probably cannot order a 2015 x3 now because the 2016 X3 is just a month away from production

2016 vs. 2015 35i X3

Some of the main changes I noticed for the 2016 x35i vs. the 2015:
  • HK sound system is standard
  • Tech package is $400 less
  • Driver Assistance Plus is $100 less
  • Base price is up $850

The packages all have the same content at 2015.

Yes, it was released at the end of Feb. I don't have a copy of the standard one or I'd post it.

I just placed my order for a 2016 X3 today. The Production will commence early April. I ordered a no line X3 3.5 with all options, and the price was about 850 USD lower than a 2015 equipped the same. Ordering the 3.5 got one good option as a standard (Harmon Kardon stereo). The base was 46,300 USD. The BMW sales guy said I was the first person in awhile to order all options. I am taking delivery in Greenville, SC. I can't wait for the driver sessions. My car completed production on 02 April, and I will take delivery at the South Carolina Delivery center on 23 April. My VIN last 7 is 0K35824, and it is the eighth X3 35i in the 2016 delivery queue.

I wish someone would post. I would like to see if you can order a 2016 M Sport with cold weather and driver assistance plus package. That is what held us back from ordering one in 2015. I asked my dealer, but they did not seem to know the answer yet.

It's the same, ZMM cannot be ordered with ZCW and ZDB.

Looking between the 2015 and 2016 ordering guides, the main differences in the 35i is base price is $800 more, but it comes with Harmon Kardon audio standard which used to be $875, Driver Assistance Plus (ZDB) has dropped in price from $1900 to $1700 and the Technology Package (ZTP) has dropped from $3150 to $2750.

$100 price increase

One other thing I noticed is 6NH Hands-free Bluetooth and USB audio connection was standard on the 2015 and now 6NP Enhanced USB and Bluetooth is standard on the 2016. I haven't been able to find anything on 6NP though. You can still order 6NS separately but it's now $200 instead of $500 like it was on the 2015. For 2015 6NS was labeled Enhanced USB and Bluetooth plus Smartphone Integration, for 2016 it's only labeled Smartphone Integration, so I'm thinking the rest of what it added in 2015 is now standard on the 2016, but that is just a wild guess.

$100 increase in base model for 28i from 2015 to 2016, BUT please read my above post. The way I priced out an XDrive 28i it worked out $1750 cheaper from 2015 to 2016.

Thanks for the info. Can not believe they still can not be ordered together on a M-Sport. Guess it is on to other SUV's.
