BMW has launched the X6 M and X5 M in India at a price of INR 16 million ($246,197) and INR 15.5 million ($238,503) respectively. They will directly compete with the likes of Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Mercedes-Benz GL63 AMG and Range Rover Sport SVR.

The M badge means the X5 and X6 get a sportier look with restyled kidney grilles and larger air intakes, along with 21-inch wheels. Under the hood, the duo is powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is capable of producing 567 hp and 750 Nm of torque. The power is transferred to all the wheels of the car via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h time stands at a remarkable 4.2 seconds, while the top-speed is electronically limited at 250 km/h.

Mr Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said “Inspired by motorsport, M is one of the most coveted badges of all and has shaped the history of performance automobiles. The next chapter will begin now with the all-new BMW X5 M and the all-new BMW X6 M,  raising the bar for high-performance sports cars with highly emotive design, increased output and outstanding efficiency. Their exclusivity, breath-taking agility and powerful acceleration combined with everyday usability sets them apart in its segment. When these two athletes from the M family flex their muscles, extreme power is unleashed.”

BMW also launched the X1 M and opened its first M studio in India earlier this month.
