Just revealed at https://www.bmw-m.com/en/all-models/...w-x3m-x4m.html

The BMW X model range from BMW M is growing rapidly, with two new all-wheel-drive, high-performance models in the shape of the new BMW X3 M and the new BMW X4 M soon being launched in the Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupés (SAC) segments. The first prototypes of the two BMW M automobiles have already proved their dynamic driving qualities on the legendary Nürburgring track in their pre-release camouflage. Despite being in disguise, their typical M high-performance character still shone through.

GUARANTEED HIGHEST PERFORMANCE.

Even at an early stage of development, the new BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M have the classic design features of a BMW M model. These include large air intakes at the front of the vehicle, specifically M optimised aerodynamics and an exhaust system with four tailpipes integrated into the rear apron. The newly-developed straight six-cylinder engine with M TwinPower Turbo technology and high speed characteristics is also one of the technological highlights of the two high-performance models.

SUPERIOR DRIVING CHARACTERISTICS.

The new BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M use the model-specific M xDrive all-wheel drive system to ensure superior and performance-oriented driving characteristics at all times. The intelligent all-wheel drive provides maximum traction and loss-free distribution of the drive torque on all four wheels. Complemented by an active M Differential on the rear axle, the new BMW X3 M and BMW X4 M raise dynamic driving characteristics such as agility, cornering dynamics and precision to an unprecedented level in their segments. Both cars will offer an enticing taste of the typical M package, featuring the outstanding drive, high-precision chassis and innovative aerodynamics that are synonymous with the superior performance and agility of every BMW M car.

FINAL STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT.

Before the new BMW X3 M and the BMW X4 M are unleashed on the market to set new standards for Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV) and Sports Activity Coupés (SAC), both high-performance models will reach the final stage in their maturity at the Nürburgring. The legendary race track is the perfect venue for BMW M's ultimate testing and tuning programme.

I just think the g01 x3 is one of the best looking BMW right now. Had an e53 x5 and now I think I like the x3s better. The whole proportion of the car is perfect. Next target SUV would be an x3m

Do you say that because of the clear area over the engine?

Take all my money. That X4 M is sex and that X3 M is so enticing

Does this have the n55 or s55 motor? I was under the impression these cars were coming with the s55, but it sounds like it's the n55.

S58 engine yes.

Exterior doesn't reveal too many differences except for less wheel gap. I'm sure the m magic is in the Powertrain and chassis. At least we all get the m sports steering wheel now ... just have to order a m version. See it's special :-)

I haven't been following this vehicle. What engine is it supposed to have? Derivation of the B58 or the S55?

Personal preferences being what they are, X4M styling appeals to me more than X6M. Cannot wait to drive one.

Enthusiasts! It's the s58! WW Emissions legislation require a new engine. S55 doesn't cut it anymore and not enough power to overtake the competition as stated by Frank in the preview video this morning.
