For the first time ever, BMW has bolstered its high performance range with a Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupé (SAC). The recently unveiled and newly developed BMW X3 M Competition SAV and BMW X4 M Competition SAC offer drivers the dynamics, power and handling of the racetrack, but with the comfort and confidence expected of an off-road vehicle.

The new high-performance engine has been partnered with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, which gives drivers a new level of control. What’s more, it comes with the new M xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This allows a rear-wheel bias and affords two all-wheel-drive driving modes.

The straight-six petrol engine found in both Competition models is the most powerful ever to be used in a BMW M. Therefore, it isn’t surprising to see that both power from 0 to 62mph in only 4.1 seconds. Its high-revving unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology, which comes with a newly developed bi-turbo unit, generates 510hp, and a peak torque of 600Nm.

A notable evolution in this latest BMW engine is the new cylinder head, which has a core manufactured using 3D printing. This new technique allows for normally-unattainable geometric forms to be created, and with this has cut the engine weight and optimised performance.

From every angle, the new BMW X3 M Competition and new BMW X4 M Competition reveal a character that is inspired by performance. The combination of a long wheelbase, short overhangs, and slightly hexagonal wheel arches is unmistakably sporty. What’s more, both sport a High-gloss Black kidney grille with black double bars, which adds even more confidence.

To ensure that both models extend their high performance principles to include the aesthetics and functionality, a host of M-specific design elements can be found inside and out. Highlights include the electrically adjustable sports seats, Extended Merino leather upholstery, M-specific cockpit, and M leather steering wheel.
