High performance models from the BMW M range – the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M were launched in India. The BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M are available at BMW dealerships across India as CBU (Completely Built-Up) units at Rs 15,500,000 and Rs 16,000,000 respectively.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “Inspired by motorsport, M is one of the most coveted badges of all and has shaped the history of performance automobiles. The next chapter will begin now with the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M, raising the bar for high-performance sports cars with highly emotive design, increased output and outstanding efficiency. Their exclusivity, breath-taking agility and powerful acceleration combined with everyday usability sets them apart in its segment. When these two athletes from the M family flex their muscles, extreme power is unleashed.”
The tough off-roading characteristics of the BMW xDrive and the stunning power delivery of the BMW M range come together to give form to these winners from the BMW stable.
The new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M are available in the following seven metallic paintworks: Carbon Black, Silverstone, Black Sapphire, Melbourne Red, Mineral White, Long Beach Blue, Donington Grey and in non-metallic Alpine White color.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “Uniting the best of both worlds, the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M are all-rounders that cope with every challenge due to their distinctive versatility. They confidently stand out of the crowd - just like their drivers. Driving an M car is like experiencing the world from a level above. It is the fastest escape from the ordinary. The striking X and M design elements combined with a luxurious interior and superior technology reveal the exclusive character of these cars.”
With their striking use of forms, the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M clearly flag sporting ambitions. 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 and athleticism.
Inspired by motor racing, the interior follows hallmark BMW driver-oriented design of the cockpit. The new multifunctional M leather steering with integrated aluminum 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 the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M impresses with outstanding responsiveness and agile power delivery at any speed with astonishing efficiency. An output of 583 PS produces a maximum torque of 750 Nm at 2200-5000 rpm and accelerates the cars from 0-100 kmph in just 4.2 seconds to a top speed of 250 kmph (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 outstanding 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’.
The all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M offer cutting edge safety technologies that provide optimal support in any situation with eight airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) including Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Active Protection with Alertness Assistant, Side-Impact protection, Electronic vehicle immobilizer and crash sensors.

They are equipped with a comprehensive technology package including features such as Intelligent Lightweight Construction, Automatic Start/Stop function, Brake Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering, 50:50 Weight Distribution and many other innovative technologies.
The range of M specific BMW ConnectedDrive features numerous optional driver assistance systems, pioneering infotainment and unique connectivity.
