The new BMW X5 M Competition and the new BMW X6 M Competition

BMW M GmbH has set about honing the profile of its high-performance cars in the luxury Sports Activity Vehicle and Sports Activity Coupé segments with extensive modifications in terms of performance, presence and digitalisation. The new BMW X5 M Competition (fuel consumption combined: 13.1 – 12.9 l/100 km [21.6 – 21.9 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 295 – 291 g/km in the WLTP cycle; figures for the NEDC cycle: – ) and new BMW X6 M Competition (fuel consumption combined: 12.9 – 12.7 l/100 km [21.9 – 22.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 292 – 287 g/km in the WLTP cycle; figures for the NEDC cycle: – ) boast a new V8 engine with 48V technology and maximum output of 460 kW/625 hp, exterior design updates and the latest-generation iDrive control/operation system, complete with the BMW Curved Display and BMW Operating System 8.

The drive system upgrades and electrification result in even more responsive power delivery. Fresh design accents emphasise the dynamic and extravagant aura of both models. Digital technology not only optimises control and operation, it also delivers advances in the field of automated driving and parking systems.

The first high-performance models from BMW M GmbH to feature 48V technology.

The latest generation of drive technology fitted in the new BMW X5 M Competition and new BMW X6 M Competition marks the debut of 48V technology in the brand’s high-performance models. An electric motor integrated in the compact housing of the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission delivers up to 9 kW/12 hp of additional drive power and 200 Nm (147 lb-ft) of torque, while also functioning as a crankshaft-mounted starter generator. The energy required for this is supplied by a 48V battery housed in the engine compartment. The battery is charged through highly efficient adaptive recuperation under braking and on the overrun.

The 48V technology joins forces with a new M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. As well as its cross-bank exhaust manifold, the 4.4‑litre unit now also features a reinforced crankshaft drive, further developed turbocharging, a new air intake duct and an optimised oil supply system and oil separation process. It delivers peak torque of 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) between 1,800 and 5,800 rpm and generates maximum output of 460 kW/625 hp at 6,000 rpm.

The sharper response and high-revving character of the V8 engine, together with the boost provided by the electric motor, take the performance attributes for which M cars are renowned to an even more enthralling level. The new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition each accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds. The drive system’s more effervescent nature can also be clearly felt when putting in a quick burst of speed. The standard M Sport exhaust system with electrically controlled flaps adds another layer to the performance experience with its exhilarating drive sound. New catalytic converters, meanwhile, do their bit to improve the petrol engine’s emissions performance.

Precise transfer of power: new eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, new application of M xDrive, Active M Differential.

The engine’s power is relayed to a new version of the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic that offers a choice of three shift settings in both automated and manual mode. New features include, among other things, a retuned setup and a sharper shift action.

Further adding to the distinctive performance experience offered by the new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition is a newly adapted version of the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which teams up with the Active M Differential at the rear axle. The M Setup menu lets the driver switch from the default 4WD setting to 4WD Sport mode, which makes it possible to execute controlled drifts by splitting power with a distinct rear-wheel bias.
