Like most OEMs nowadays, BMWs CUVs are making the company. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Feb. 1, 2017 2017 BMW X3 – The second-generation BMW X3 was offered with the award winning 2.0L turbo diesel as the X3 xDrive28d rated at 27/33 mpgUS city/highway back in 2016. The BMW USA build pages no longer show it available for the 2017 MY and thus you are stuck with either the 2.0L I4 (21/28 mpg city/highway) or 3.0L I6 Turbo (23/33 mpg city/highway) xDrive variants. The 2016 AWD BMW X3 xDrive28d w/ the world class 180 hp and 280 lb-ft. of torque 2.0L Turbo Diesel mated to an 8-speed AT was $43,445 incl. the $995 D&H charge. It will be missed. BMW January 2017 Sales Overview In total, the BMW Group in the U.S. (BMW and MINI combined) reported January sales of 21,219 vehicles, a decrease of 0.5 percent from the 21,320 vehicles sold in the same month a year ago. BMW on its own achieved January sales of 18,109, down 0.1 percent over the 18,082 sold in January of 2016. MINI reported it sold 3,110 vehicles in January, down 4.0 percent from the 3,238 sold in January of 2015. BMW January 2017 Sales Highlights The featured BMW X3 achieved sales of 3,154 vehicles, the brands strongest increase at 57.5 percent over the 2,002 sold in January of 2016. X5 sales lead the brand with 3,276 vehicles sold, up 26.8 percent over the 2,584 sold in January of 2016. The number one tidbit in the January segment sales reports is that the Ford Fusion Hybrid outsold the Prius liftback for the first time in history. I believe this is the first time the Prius Liftback has been surpassed since the Gen 2 was released back in late 2003!
