off-roading characteristics of the BMW xDrive and the stunning power delivery
of the BMW M range.
The all-new BMW X5 M and the
all-new BMW X6 M are available at BMW dealerships across India as CBU
The M-specific design
characteristics visually emphasise the sporty driving experience. The kidney
grille with double slats, large three-part air inlet in the front apron and M
twin tailpipes give an impressive look to the vehicles. The proportions of the
all-new BMW X5 M signal massive power and extreme handling abilities while the
flowing lines of the all-new BMW X6 M underline its extravagant coupe concept
Inspired by motor racing, the
interior follows hallmark BMW driver-oriented design of the cockpit. The new
multifunctional M leather steering with integrated aluminium gearshift paddles,
leather-trimmed BMW Individual instrument panel, centre console with knee pads,
M–specific gear selector lever, driving dynamics buttons and sill finishers
with model lettering are standard offerings that deliver a true feeling of
driving on a racetrack. Fine grain Merino leather upholstery with contrasting
seams and embossed M logo on the backrests showcase flawless workmanship.
The M TwinPower Turbocharged
V8 petrol engine in both the vehicles produces an output of 575 hp and a peak torque
of 750 Nm at 2200-5000 rpm. The cars accelerate from 0-100 km / hr in just 4.2
seconds to a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited).
The new eight-speed M Steptronic
transmission with Drivelogic stands out with its exceptional precision and
impressive fast-shifting ability. At any time, in any gear, the transmission
collaborates perfectly with the engine enabling it to develop its full power
and efficiency. The driver can also take over manual control or gear changes
using shift paddles.
The intelligent BMW xDrive
four-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to the most challenging road surface
conditions, ensuring great traction at all times. Split-second response times
allow the BMW xDrive to distribute drive power flexibly between the two axles
for optimum grip. In this way, BMW xDrive combines the advantages of an
all-wheel drive – traction, directional stability and safety – with classic BMW
‘Sheer Driving Pleasure’.

(DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Anti-lock
