The New BMW X6 M (3)

BMW Group Malaysia today unveiled the second generation of its high-performance all-wheel-drive Sports Activity Coupé (SAC), the new BMW X6 M, which will once again set the pace in its segment with its highly emotive design, superior power and dynamic performance as well as outstanding efficiency.

Mr. Alan Harris, Managing Director and CEO of BMW Group Malaysia said, “Five years ago, the introduction of the first generation BMW X6 M marked yet another significant BMW success story in terms of dynamic excellence, distinct M design and outstanding efficiency. Today, with its revolutionary design that combines the agility and athletic design of a BMW Coupé with the versatility and seating capabilities of an SAV, and the pure performance capabilities typical of the creations from the BMW M division, the new BMW X6 M will not only deliver the ultimate premium experience, but also prove BMW’s ability to continue taking its vehicle concepts to an even higher level.”

Design: identical front, distinct character.

The bold styling of the new BMW X6 M transcends pure aesthetics with its M-specific characteristics. Its front is dominated by the wide M double-bridge kidney grille and large three-part air inlets to form the vehicle’s distinctive appearance.

Its dynamic character meanwhile is further emphasised by a coupé-like silhouette which combines a low occupant cell, sloping roofline and pronounced wedge shape with M side skirts and a two-part crease line. The muscular shoulder line culminates in an eye-catching rear spoiler which reduces axle lift, proving that striking design can be functional, and M twin tailpipes which are enlarge by ten millimetres.

Other conspicuous M-specific characteristics in the new BMW X6 M include M twin-arm exterior mirrors with integrated direction indicators, gills behind the front wheels, muscular flared wheel arches, and 21” M light alloy wheels with mixed tyres to ensure direct steering response and perfect handling.

Chassis: even more precise steering and first-class handling.

The new BMW X6 M, which body is now lowered by 10 millimetres, sports M-specific chassis modifications which include stiffer springs. Working in conjunction with the active Dynamic Drive anti-roll system, the new BMW X6 M receives significant reduction of lateral tilt and body roll in fast bends while Dynamic Performance Control reduces understeer, making cornering that much more exhilarating. The new BMW X6 M is also equipped with a pneumatic rear suspension featured as standard. These enhancements and the Dynamic Damper Control with electronically adjustable damping for COMFORT, SPORT and SPORT + modes ensure a perfect balance between high-level dynamism and comfort.

With its new axle design, specially developed non-runflat tyres and an M-tuned xDrive all-wheel drive system, the new BMW X6 M also ensures road-gripping traction and delivers perfect distribution of drive between the front and rear axles, allowing for optimal traction in all situations. Meanwhile, additional support comes from the M Servotronic, a rack-and-pinion steering system with electric speed-dependent power-steering adjustment. Drivers can also customise various steering parameters with the Driving Dynamic buttons to adapt the steering characteristics to their personal preferences.

Engine: more power, more torque, more sound.

At the core of the new BMW X6 M lies the most powerful BMW engine developed for all-wheel drive vehicles to date. The new, especially responsive 4.4-litre V8 M TwinPower Turbo engine delivers 575hp – 20hp more than its predecessor – and a ten per cent increase in torque to 750 Nm. The new BMW X6 M also carries an acceleration power from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds. Despite this top performance, fuel consumption and C02 emissions has been reduced by more than 20 per cent to just 11.1l/100km and 258g/km respectively.

The power delivery of the new BMW X6 M is transmitted via the new eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic which is bound to set new benchmarks in dynamics and shifting. The Drivelogic function allows for unusually fine increments between gears and extremely rapid shifts which facilitate optimum force delivery at all speeds, guaranteeing the ultimate in power and efficiency. As an M exclusive feature, there is no automatic force-transmitting connection between the engine and the transmission when the vehicle is at a standstill. This prevents the vehicle from moving immediately after selecting Drive and releasing the break; the car will only move with a short tap on the accelerator.

The new BMW X6 M also comes with a cross-bank exhaust manifold for perfect exhaust gas flow, optimum power development and lightning-quick responsiveness. Engineered with unique auditory indicators, the car also produces a distinctive growl when the engine shifts through its gears for a more sporty appeal.

Interior: exclusive interior, inspired by motor racing.

Developed for top sporting performance, the new BMW X6 M’s cockpit comes with clear structures, top-quality ergonomics and an unbeatable view. The sporty characteristic of the car is enhanced by a three-spoke leather-wrapped M steering wheel with integrated gearshift paddles which offers an ideal grip, allowing drivers to command the road with ease. The M gearshift lever and the driving dynamics buttons are orientated towards the driver and located in the centre console which is flanked by knee-pads for increased comfort.

Meanwhile, the exclusive electric M multifunction seats in the new BMW X6 M are fitted to reflect some of the luxurious qualities of the car. Even during very dynamic driving, the deep seats, high side bolsters and angled shoulder sections guarantee perfect lateral support at all times. The seats also come with a range of adjustment options, including electronic adjustment of the seat depth, headrest height and backrest width. The new BMW X6 M is also fitted with a characteristic M instrument cluster with a display area for M-specific dynamics systems and an M Drive Menu in the Control Display to customise driving characterestics via the M Drive buttons on the steering wheel.

The new BMW X6 M also arrives with comprehensive BMW ConnectedDrive features including the latest generation Navigation System Professional, which benefits from enhanced functionality, better graphics and 3D map display.

Other additional features for the new BMW X6 M include the optional full-colour Head-Up Display with an M-specific view for displaying gears and rev range with Shift Lights. For drivers who would like an in-depth analysis of their driving style, the BMW M lap timer app for selected smartphones can also be accessed via the iDrive Controller.
