As part of its Certification to become an Official Partner of M in 2018 (https://www.press.bmwgroup.com/south-africa/article/detail/T0283757EN/trainings-all-over-the-world:-internationalisation-of-the-bmw-and-mini-driving-experience-proceeding-apace ), BMW Driving Experience South Africa is now offering multiday tours that go through some of the most scenic landscapes in Southern Africa.
The multiday tours offer BMW customers an unforgettable experience in BMW X3s that are built at BMW Group Plant Rosslyn in South Africa. These vehicles (BMW X3 xDrive30ds) are fitted with special off-road features developed by BMW Driving Experience.
The upgrades include:
- Raised overall ride height by almost 50mm to improve clearance,
- Full aluminium underbody protection with increased departure angle,
- Larger all-terrain tyres for added grip and durability (available for customers to order at any BMW Dealer),
- Pre-air filter with protective mesh grille to prevent desert sand from entering the engine, and
- Full sized spare wheel firmly fixed in the luggage compartment.
BMW Namibia Multiday Tour – The adventure begins.
The Namibia tour in particular is an eight-day tour offered to a maximum of 12 participants per group. The package includes a 1,300 kilometre route covering some of the breath-taking countryside, spectacular wildlife from Windhoek to the Atlantic Ocean, unique driving experience on the most exclusive tracks, active driving exploration of the magnificent dunes of the Namib desert, a visit to an indigenous village and historic cave paintings as well as a variety of culinary delights.
The BMW X3 xDrive30d: mightier and cleaner than ever before.
The BMW X3 is a statement of unlimited opportunities and an expression of sheer presence and freedom. From the very first glance, it impresses with its athletic appearance and fascinates with an exciting driving experience. Thanks to partially autonomous driving and the intelligent all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive, it offers supreme ride comfort both on and off the road enabling it to redefine the benchmarks in its class.
The 3.0-litre straight-six diesel under the bonnet of the BMW X3 xDrive30d delivers maximum output of 195 kW (fuel consumption combined: 6.1 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined: 162 g/km*; predecessor: 190 kW). Peak torque is an impressive 620 Nm between 2,000 and 2,500 rpm. As a result, the new BMW X3 xDrive30d storms from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.8 seconds and goes on to reach a top speed of 240 km/h.
