BMW’s X5 and X6 large SUV twins have been given a hardcore M and even more hardcore M Competition makeover, with only the latter scheduled to blast into Australian showrooms in the second quarter of next year.
To compliment the extra grunt, the new flagships SUVs are also equipped with an active M differential, sports exhaust, beefed-up engine cooling, adaptive suspension and M Compound brakes.
Three driving modes are also available including ‘Road’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’.
The X5 and X6 Competition grades sport a head-up display, M-specific instrument cluster, and M leather steering wheel.
From the outside, the X5 and X6 M Competition variants can be differentiated by a blacked-out kidney grille, chiselled lower bumper, aerodynamic exterior mirrors, front fender vents, body-coloured wheelarch extensions and 21-/22-inch wheels front/rear.
Inside, both X5 and X6 Competition grades sport a head-up display, M-specific instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel, hexagonal quilting on the seats and Merino leather trim.
