The Bx3 was awarded the “Winner” label in the “Exterior Premium Brand” category. The award is being presented for the tenth time by the German Design Council, which this year was made up of a top-class International jury.
“Benjamin Nawka, Chief Designer of the
Borgward Group, is pleased: “With this award, our entire range of models, consisting of the BX7TS, BX7, BX6, BX5 and BX3, has won several internationally recognized design awards. It confirms that our design teams in Stuttgart and Beijing have again done a very goodjob. We are proud of that. That is now both an incentive and challenge for the running development of our future models.”
Measuring 4,41Omm, 1,830mm and 1,670mm in length, width & height, respectively, the BX3’s size is comparable to that of the Jeep Compass and the VW TRoc. The BX3 is powered by a 1.4-Iitre four cylinder petrol motor that produces 148bhp & 250Nm. An Asian-sourced 6speed automatic gearbox (with three use modes: Eco, Sports & Snow) is paired with the engine.
The BX3 also takes pride in its relatively well-decked features list, that consists of goodies like a 360-degree camera system, electric tailgate, seats with individual height adjustment, a 1 0.25-inch instrument cluster ,a smart B-Link HMI system that works through an 8.0-inch touchscreen unit and the much loved electric sunroof.
