The BMW iX3 has only just gone on sale here in Singapore, but BMW has already given the car a mild facelift. The changes are purely cosmetic, and are meant to keep the iX3’s design in line with the revised regular X3 models announced earlier this year.

The grille of the iX3 is now slightly bigger, as are the cooling intakes down by the front bumper. The front side intakes are now also L-shaped, and there is also new mesh pattern on the grille. There are also various blue accent trimming throughout the car, while the headlights are also 10mm slimmer. The rear is mostly unchanged save for a thin black surround for the LED tall lamps.

The interior also gets fairly minor changes too, the most significant of which is the upgraded infotainment touchscreen, which is now upsized to 12.3-inches from 10.25-inches previously. The gear selector is also of a different design, while there are once again blue accent trims littered across the cabin.

Aside from that, the iX3 essentially remains the same, and there are no changes under the skin. The specs therefore are identical to the car that was just launched here in Singapore, with 286hp and 295Nm of torque from its electric powertrain, and a quoted electric driving range of 450km on a full charge.

The revised iX3 is expected to arrive in Singapore by the end of this year, and it is expected to still be competitively priced, with the current version being the cheapest X3 variant you can buy here.
