BMW ANNOUNCES NEW X3 M AND X4 M COMPETITION MODELS.
The BMW family has grown. BMW has bolstered its high performance range with a Sports Activity Vehicle & Sports Activity Coupé.
The recently unveiled and newly developed BMW X3 M Competition and BMW X4 M Competition offer drivers the dynamics, power and handling of the racetrack, but with the comfort and confidence expected of an off-road vehicle.
The worldwide market launch of the of the BMW X3 M, BMW X4 M and Competition models will begin in July 2019. To find out more about the new BMW X3 and X4 M Competition models register your interest below.
Handle with flare.
The new high-performance engine has been partnered with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, which gives drivers a new level of control. What’s more, it comes with the new M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This allows a rear-wheel bias and affords two all-wheel-drive driving modes.
The straight-six petrol engine found in both Competition models is the most powerful ever to be used in a BMW M. Therefore, it isn’t surprising to see that both power from 0 to 62mph in only 4.1 seconds. Its high-revving unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which comes with a newly developed bi-turbo unit, generates 510hp, and a peak torque of 600Nm.
A notable evolution in this latest BMW engine is the new cylinder head, which has a core manufactured using 3D printing. This new technique allows for normally-unattainable geometric forms to be created, and with this has cut the engine weight and optimised performance.
To ensure that both models extend their high performance principles to include the aesthetics and functionality, a host of M-specific design elements can be found inside and out. Highlights include the electrically adjustable sports seats, Extended Merino leather upholstery, M-specific cockpit, and M leather steering wheel.
