2018 BMW X3 Tested in Game of Thrones Set in Morocco

 
We will admit that the BMW brand isn't the first manufacturer to come to mind when it comes to off-roading. Nevertheless, select models under the German automaker are designed with state-of-the-art off-road capability. 

The 2018 BMW X3, in fact, was spotted being tested in the deserts of Morocco. This is not just any Moroccan desert, though. This is also the same location where several scenes from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones have been filmed. 

In order to tackle the off-road terrains of Morocco, the latest iteration of the BMW X3 comes with a few nice extras. For one, the shape of the SUV as a whole has been tapered for improved aerodynamic capabilities. The interior has also been redesigned with sports seats and a touchscreen digital cockpit accompanied by a 3D heads-up display. 

The brand's xDrive all-wheel-drive now also comes as standard equipment in the new BMW car. This includes a reverse camera for assisted parking.

A 2.0-liter turbo engine comes standard, though buyers have the option for upgrading to a 3.0-liter six-cylinder inline engine, capable of zipping from zero to 60 in 5.8 seconds. 

That's not all about the 2018 BMW X3. This SUV was also just named by Consumer Reports as one of the best luxury compact SUVs in the market. The site praised the SUV for its fluid steering and ease of control at high speeds. This especially makes cornering and tackling curvy roads far easier.
