BMW Group New Zealand will launch the third generation of the X5 M and X6 M models in May 2020 with stunning levels of performance, design and dynamic capabilities.

Both models will be offered for the first time in Competition guise only, guaranteeing local customers the highest possible level of specification and power output. 

The new models combine the acclaimed X5 and X6 platforms with the most powerful engine in the segment: the mighty 460kW and 750Nm BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine.

These figures mark a 37kW power hike on the previous generation X5 M and X6 M engine and help to propel the new X5 M and X6 M from 0-100km/h in just 3.8 seconds. This is four tenths of a second faster than the outgoing models.  

Technical highlights of the new engine include twin-scroll turbochargers located in the V of the engine for optimum efficiency and response, a forged crankshaft for exceptional torsional force resistance and a motorsport oil supply system that integrates baffling and active suction in the sump to deliver lubrication where needed for track use.

The cooling system also evokes a racecar set up with 10 individual coolers including two water cooled intercoolers for the turbochargers and oil coolers for engine and transmission.

Drive is sent to the ground via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, which adopts the same M control concept as the BMW M8 Competition vehicles.

The standard fitment M Sport exhaust system is characterised by four 100mm black chrome tailpipes. The exhaust delivers a loud, emotive soundtrack that emphasises the high revving and considerable output of the BMW TwinPower Turbo V8.

Chassis enhancements include Adaptive M Suspension Professional, which highlights the dynamic potential of the X5 M and X6 M with multiple modes, and the precise and direct M Servotronic steering. The latter is also adjustable between COMFORT and SPORT settings. 

Both vehicles also feature BMW M xDrive and Active M differential to deliver maximum traction and elevated dynamics for all driving situations. The fully variable M xDrive has a rear-biased set-up that brings the front axle into play only when the rear wheels are at the limits of adhesion.

The Active M differential is a needs-based differential lock that optimises traction, handling and stability elements.

The racetrack ready M compound brake system, featuring six piston fixed calipers at the front with 395mm drilled and inner-ventilated discs and single-piston floating calipers with 380mm discs at the rear, delivers astonishing stopping power. The system can bring the X5 M and X6 M from 100km/h to rest in just 32 metres.

The X5 M and X6 M also follow the M8 Competition in offering two levels of braking feel via the COMFORT AND SPORT settings.

Both the X5 M and X6 M match the outstanding performance with striking styling and design aspects. Large intakes provide a dynamic aesthetic quality while ensuring an effective supply of air to the engine, transmission and brakes.
Short overhangs and dynamic rooflines further highlight the X5 M and X6 M models as high performance flagships.

In addition, the wheel and tyre packages provide a dominant appearance while also contributing to outstanding roadholding. Both vehicles feature M light alloy wheels with star-spoke style design shod with 295/35 section tyres on the front and 315/30 section tyres on the rear.

The interior of both the X5 M and X6 M combine purposeful BMW M elements with luxury appointments that provide a premium cabin ambience. It features M multifunction sport seats trimmed in full leather ‘Merino’ upholstery and BMW Individual Alcantara headliner.
It is the first time this upholstery and headliner have been offered as standard equipment. 

A suite of advanced safety and convenience systems including BMW Driving Assistant Professional, Parking Assistant Plus and BMW Live Cockpit Professional with twin 12.3-inch LCD colour displays complement the supreme performance of both models.

The X5 M Competition Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV)-style model is priced at $219,900, while the X6 M Competition Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) is $225,600.

Both vehicles are available to order now with deliveries beginning in May this year.

Condition Based Servicing

As with all New Zealand-new BMW vehicles a five year warranty, three year service inclusive programme and five year roadside assist coverage is fully included.

All maintenance requirements for the new BMW X5 M Competition and X6 M Competition are controlled by the Condition Based Servicing (CBS) system.

With CBS, sensors and advanced algorithms monitor and calculate the conditions in which a vehicle is used, including mileage, time elapsed since its last service, fuel consumption and how a vehicle is driven. Based on the information captured, maintenance requirements are determined, identifying whether an annual vehicle inspection or oil service is due.

Selected BMW service and maintenance costs can be covered by a single, one-off advance payment with BMW Service Inclusive (BSI), which is available in two packages: Basic or Plus.

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:
