Update: The official image gallery of the BMW X4 M has been leaked. The new images fully reveal the interior too. All the new images have been added in the image gallery at the end of the story.
The upcoming BMW X4 M has been leaked via bmw.de, the company’s German consumer website. The company had prematurely uploaded the new X4 M’s brochure on the website, and a BimmerToday reader got to access it ahead of the high performance variant’s official revealing.
The BMW X4 M looks nearly identical to the standard BMW X4 equipped with the M Sport package. The trim accent on the air inlets is probably the only difference on the front. On the sides, the M variant gains mirror caps, ‘M’ fender badge, as well as 19-inch light-alloy wheels (20-inch optional) with bespoke design. At the rear, there’s a sport exhaust system with black-chromed single tailpipe on both sides.
Where the M variant majorly differs, is in terms of specifications. It sports a 3.0-litre M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine and the twin-turbocharged engine produces 265 kW (360 PS/355 hp) and 465 Nm of torque, and allows the X5 xDrive M40i to reach naught to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, 0.3 second faster than the X5 xDrive 35d. Top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, which is just 3 km/h faster than the xDrive 35i and xDrive 35d models of the standard variant. CO2 emissions figure is rated 199 g/km, while the combined fuel economy figure stands at 11.63 km/l.
