BMW Group New Zealand will further enhance its line-up of high performance M vehicles with introduction of the all new BMW X5 M Competition and BMW X6 M Competition models in Q2, 2020. 

The third generation BMW X5 M and X6 M Competition combine supreme power and performance with exceptional versatility and practicality.

Both models feature modern, luxurious and generous proportions that demand attention. The signature BMW M kidney grille with black double bars adorn the front design along with matching M gills, exterior mirror caps, diffuser trim in the rear apron and exhaust pipes in black.

The all new BMW X5 M and BMW X6 M Competition are both powered by a 4.4-litre M TwinPower turbocharged V8 petrol engine that helps deliver the standard sprint in a blistering 3.8 seconds.

Power is delivered instantaneously through an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic whereby gearshift characteristics can be adjusted via the Drivelogic button on the M-specific selector lever. For added control, manual gear shifting is available via M shift paddles on the steering wheel.

In addition, the M xDrive all-wheel-drive system and Active M Differential produce rear-wheel bias driving dynamics and work cohesively together to create agile, performance-focused handling.

Specifically tuned M chassis and suspension geometry further elevate the all-round capability of the BMW X5 M and X6 M Competition. A combination of stiff suspension mountings, enhanced camber values and continual electronic damper adjustment at each wheel allow for spirited cornering or comfortable touring drives.

Compound brakes with integrated braking system offer significant stopping power through the fusion of brake activation, brake booster and braking control functions within a single compact module. The electronic actuator regulates brake pressure to suit the driving environment and maintains superb pedal feel.

New Zealand pricing and specification detail will be released closer to the launch date.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
