With their striking use of
forms, the new BMW X5 M and new BMW X6 M
clearly flag up their sporting ambitions. With their exteriors painted fully in
body colour, both models cut a low-slung figure on the road, while mixed tyres
showcase their sporty track width and lend extra credence to their premium
Additional exterior design
modifications, moreover, elevate the
M models even further than before from the standard BMW X5 and BMW X6.
Large air intakes at the front end, side gills with a model badge and Air
Breathers, signature M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style, a typically M fourtailpipe
exhaust system and a rear spoiler (for the BMW X6 M) give them a
standalone look M fans will immediately recognise. Setting the seal on this
exclusive range of features are M-specific 20-inch light-alloy wheels with
mixed tyres or forged 21-inch M light-alloy wheels (optional).
The high-quality interior
impresses with its well-thought-through combination
of sporty features, exclusive materials and flawless workmanship. The
M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with aluminium gearshift
paddles and M gearshift lever – which works in the same way as the familiar
M Double Clutch Transmission – are complemented by electrically operated
M sports seats for the driver and front passenger, an M driver’s footrest and
the optional Head-Up Display which, in addition to the standard system, also
includes an M-specific display with gear indicator, rev band and shift lights.
New BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M customers also have the choice between
various options exclusive to the M models, such as 21-inch M light-alloy
wheels, Merino full-leather trim and M multifunction seats. And there’s also a
choice of two new and exclusive M paint finishes.
