BMW reveals new X5 M and X6 M


BMW has revealed the all-new second-generation X5 M and X6 M models, which will arrive in dealerships April of next year.

Both models are powered by a new 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo 567bhp V8 engine and linked to an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic – a 0-62mph in 4.2 seconds means it is the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for four-wheel-drive vehicles.

The xDrive four-wheel-drive system is flexible in the way it distributes torque to each axle, to ensure maximum traction on all roads and in all weathers.

In normal road driving the X5 M and X6 M are capable of achieving 25.4mpg, with CO2 emissions of 258g/km - reductions of over 20% compared to the previous models.

The exterior design of the new BMW X5 M and X6 M is purely function-led, sitting 10mm lower than its predecessors and featuring four large air intakes at the front and diffuser at the rear to aid in cooling processes and aerodynamics.

The interior features 40:20:40 split folding rear seats, heated front seats, footwell lights (LED up front), a leather-trimmed instrument panel, enhanced Bluetooth system, aluminium trace interior trim with pearl grey chrome finishers, four 12-volt power sockets, engine start/stop button and M signature accents such as M leather steering wheel, gearshift lever, M Drive menu in the information display and buttons on the steering wheel and M front sports seats.

Adaptive suspension, cruise control with brake function, driving assistant, dynamic stability control, hill-start assistant, hill descent control, front and rear parking sensors and automatic headlight control are all included as standard.

The BMW X5 M and X6 M will be priced at £90,170 and £93,070.
