We thinks it’s safe to say, modern luxury defines the character of the new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition. BMW M has extensively modified both models in key areas, further heightening the impact of its high-performance cars in the luxury Sports Activity Vehicle and Sports Activity Coupé segments. Joining forces with a new V8 engine, 48V technology makes its debut in the brand’s high-performance models to deliver an intoxicating 625hp. Key to the performance of both models is precisely tuned chassis technology in the guise of Adaptive M suspension Professional, aided by the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system and the rear Active M Differential.

Slim headlights, a newly-designed BMW kidney grille, and wide-open air intakes add further impact to their M-typical appearance, matched by the distinctive rear lights with bold X graphic. Inside, sporting prowess and sumptuous comfort are elevated to a new level, where the BMW Curved Display, M-specific ambient light bar, and high-class materials combine to great effect.

The new V8 delivers peak torque of 750Nm between 1,800 and 5,800rpm and generates maximum output of 625hp at 6,000rpm. The new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition accelerate from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds and reach 200km/h in 13.8 and 13.6 seconds respectively. The new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition sprint from 80 – 120km/h in 3.2 seconds (4th gear) and 4.2 seconds (5th gear) respectively. The top speed of both models is electronically limited to 250km/h, but can be raised to 290km/h with the optional M Driver’s Pack.

A bespoke version of the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system adds to the performance of the new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition. It uses an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch to ensure fully variable distribution of the engine’s power between front and rear wheels. The rear-wheel bias intensifies the signature M feeling when cornering, while sending precise power to all four wheels to improve traction on slippery roads.

Drivers can configure how power is distributed between the front and rear wheels in the M Setup menu. The default 4WD setting combines dynamic prowess with maximum traction; in 4WD Sport mode, the system directs a greater proportion of the engine’s torque to the rear.

The new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition, built at BMW Group Plant Spartanburg, are available to order now priced from €228,210 and €233,200 respectively.
