BMW X3 Towing Features

Many Bellevue drivers first tend to ask, “How much can a BMW X3 tow?” However, there is more to the towing power beyond the number of pounds. The 2022 BMW X3 towing capacity is pushed to an impressive range despite being on the smaller side of the BMW SAV® lineup thanks to the safety and technology features below: 

  • Dynamic Traction Control
  • Dynamic Stability Control (DSC)
  • Brake Fade Compensation
  • Start-off Assistant
  • Brake Drying and Brake Stand-by
  • 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes
  • Dynamic Brake Control
  • Cornering Brake Control
  • Servetronic power steering assist
  • Rear-view camera
  • Active Driving Assistant
  • Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO, COMFORT, and SPORT modes

While these features allow this SAV to handle more weight than other larger SUV competitors can handle, they also make it easy for you to navigate towing on the roads. You can also opt for more features, such as Surround View with 3D View, adaptive headlights, and a towing hitch!
