Start-stop technology helps reduce fuel consumption. The X3 sDrive28i (rear drive) and xDrive28i (all-wheel drive) models get a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder good for 240 horsepower and 260 ft-lbs of torque. Meanwhile, the X3 xDrive35i gets a 300-horsepower turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine capable of generating 300 ft-lbs of torque. The inline six is offered only with all-wheel drive.
