The BMW X3 M40i has arrived at the Indian shores for the first time and is available at an ex-showroom price of INR 86,50,000. The sporty variant is being imported into the country as a Completely Built-Up (CBU)—which explains the exorbitant price tag.

Adaptive M Suspension, M Sport differential and Variable Sport Steering are included as standard too.
