BMW M GmbH is unveiling the third generation of its high-performance executive-class Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) models. The new BMW X5 M, new BMW X5 M Competition, new BMW X6 M and new BMW X6 M Competition capture the imagination with their classical M genes, which deliver handling agility, dynamism and precision unmatched in their class. Their superior performance attributes combine with the versatility, extrovert design and modern luxury for which BMW X models are renowned.
A V8 engine developing up to 460 kW/625 hp, precisely controlled power transfer, an M-specific chassis – tailored to both the engine’s performance profile and the SAV / SAC vehicle concept – and design features taken from the M playbook ensure imposing power and supremely controllable handling, even at the dynamic limits. The sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is dispatched in just 3.9 seconds (Competition models: 3.8 seconds) – which is up to 0.4 seconds faster than the outgoing models. The intoxicating all-round performance package benefits from fine-tuning carried out during intensive testing at the BMW Group’s proving grounds, the Nürburgring-Nordschleife and other race tracks. The new BMW X5 M, new BMW X6 M and Competition models will celebrate their show premieres at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019 ahead of a market launch beginning in April 2020.
