M models power ahead

M models power ahead

HIGH performance is not normally compatible with rough terrain: now however there are two models that might be up to the challenge, with BMW’s unveiling of its second-generation X5 M and X6 M.

Compared to the 2009 forebears, this duo boast significant improvements: with up to 10 per cent more power, torque and performance, while lowering fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by over 20 per cent.

Both are powered by a new and gargantuan 4.4-litre M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine with two TwinScroll turbochargers.

With outputs of 575hp and 750Nm, this is undoubtedly the most powerful engine ever developed by BMW for its four-wheel-drive vehicles. It is linked to a newly developed eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission now featuring Drivelogic.

The cars’ driving dynamics also benefit from specific tuning by BMW M.

The xDrive four-wheel-drive system is fully flexible, distributing torque to each axle, in order to ensure maximum traction on even the most challenging of Scotland's roads, whatever the weather.

Normally, the bias is towards the rear to give the X5 M and X6 M maximum agility, but when the occasion demands, 100 per cent of engine torque can be sent to either axle.

The BMW X5 M and X6 M arrive in dealerships on April 11, 2015, and will be priced at £90,170 and £93,070 respectively.
