M Sport Package for 2011 BMW X3 Leaks Onto Web

It wasn’t mentioned in the official release of the 2011 BMW X3, but it seems the latest Bavarian crossover will be offered with an M Sport package, which will add some sporty flair and a stiffer, more responsive suspension.

Apparently leaked by German Web site BimmerToday, these photos show the reputed X3 Sports Package components. Featured are 19-inch alloy wheels, a stiffer suspension, a multi-function leather steering wheel, and a M Sport bodykit. Other package amenities include new seats, variable steering, an M-branded gear selector, and special roof liner and upholstery. Exclusive Carbon Black metallic paint (not pictured) will be part of the deal as well.

A few weeks ago, we also learned the 2011 5 Series would offer its own M Sports Package in the future. We will formally meet the new X3 at the Paris Motor Show this fall, and if the M Sport Package roll-out for the United States is similar to the 5 Series, we can expect it to show up on order forms in 2011.

The 2011 X3 hits dealers later this year.
