BMW has unveiled the second generation of the X5 M and X6 M with an all-new 2016 update. When the previous generation of the two cars arrived in 2009, it was the first time the high-performance character distilled by BMW M had been transplanted into an all-wheel-drive BMW X model. The result was class-leading dynamics. The 2016 X5 M and X6 M pull no punches in writing the next chapter in this success story with another significant step forward in dynamic excellence, emotionally rich M design and outstanding efficiency.
The 2016 X5 M and X6 M combine the characteristic features of the successful BMW X family – exclusivity, robustness, agility and everyday usability – with the commitment to high performance that defines an M car. The latter is resoundingly highlighted by the cars’ impressive performance figures. Both models complete the sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.2 seconds in conjunction with the standard eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. Slated to hit showrooms in 2015, the 2016 X5 M will be priced at $99,650 USD and the X6 M at $103,050 USD.
