The BMW X3 and X4 car leasing ranges have been revamped for 2021.

The stylish BMW X3 and X4 car leasing range have been comprehensively revamped to deliver new equipment, modern interiors and an updated infotainment system.

Both models receive a redesigned rear and front section – and in the X3, this accentuates the sports activity vehicle appearance.

And in the X4, the sports activity coupe silhouette has been enhanced.

There’s also hybrid technology onboard the refreshed cars with the X3 xDrive30e receiving a plug-in system that uses a 48-volt setup.
