It's barely one year old, but the stylish and impressive contract hire BMW iX3 has been refreshed.
Not only has the exterior been redesigned, but BMW has unveiled the M Sport trim as the standard offering for UK drivers.
The exterior refresh sees a larger BMW kidney grille being added and there's a blue accent along its inner edges.
The grille also features the 'i' badge and a mesh-like structure.
BMW has also made the headlights slimmer to deliver a sharper look.
The BMW iX3 car lease model also features the firm's latest Operating System 7.
This is enabled for over-the-air updates and Live Cockpit Professional has also been added as a standard feature with a high-res 12.3-inch instrument display cluster.
There's also a 12.3-inch central control display screen too.
Drivers also get the latest version of BMW's intelligent personal assistant which uses voice control and a system that will help the driver by learning their preferences and favourite settings, for example, for the seats or places where they visit regularly.
The Live Cockpit Professional has smartphone integration so drivers can access various features, including Google Maps, Google Assistant and music streaming services.
The top speed for the BMW iX3 is 112 mph with a range of 286 miles.
The 0 to 62 mph sprint time is 6.8 seconds from a motor producing 286 hp, and torque of 400Nm.
Not only is the interior a premium offering, but there are also heated front seats, wireless phone charging and the firm's latest driver assistance systems, including parking assist and driving assistant professional.
The iX3 M Sport Pro adds a head-up display, gesture control and a Harman Kardon surround sound system.
The model also features dark headlights and more comfortable seats for the driver and front passenger.
BMW says it is adding a new, flexible fast charging cable that can be used for industrial and domestic sockets.
There's also a personal wall box available that will monitor energy usage and how much it costs, along with the historic record to make it convenient for company car drivers.
The iX3 also features BMW's satnav system which also highlights public charging stations, including the charging rate and the connector type needed.
The impressive contract hire BMW iX3 is a stylish and great car to drive and it's one that needs to be road tested for anybody who wants an SUV EV that turns heads.
