2016 BMW X5 M
When the previous generation of the arrived in 2009, it was the first time the high-performance character distilled by BMW M GmbH had been transplanted into an all-wheel-drive BMW X model. The result was class-leading dynamics. The new 2016 BMW X5 M combine the characteristic features of the successful BMW X family with the commitment to high performance that defines an M car.
2016 BMW X5 M Exterior and Interior
New 2016 BMW X5 M clearly flag up their sporting ambitions. With their exteriors painted fully in body colour, both models cut a low-slung figure on the road, while mixed tyres showcase their sporty track width and lend extra credence to their premium perception. Additional exterior design modifications, moreover, elevate the M models even further than before from the standard BMW X5. Large air intakes at the front end, side gills with a model badge and Air Breathers, signature M exterior mirrors in twin-stalk style, a typically M fourtailpipe exhaust system and give them a standalone look M fans will immediately recognise. Setting the seal on this exclusive range of features are M-specific 20-inch light-alloy wheels with mixed tyres or forged 21-inch M light-alloy wheels (optional). The high-quality interior impresses with its well-thought-through combination of sporty features, exclusive materials and flawless workmanship. The M instrument cluster, M leather steering wheel with aluminium gearshift paddles and M gearshift lever – which works in the same way as the familiar M Double Clutch Transmission – are complemented by electrically operated M sports seats for the driver and front passenger, an M driver’s footrest and the optional Head-Up Display which, in addition to the standard system, also includes an M-specific display with gear indicator, rev band and shift lights.
2016 BMW X5 M Engine
The turbocharged V8 engine fitted in the 2016 BMW X5 M impresses most profoundly with its lightning-fast responsiveness. The new engine features a closed-deck crankcase with an extremely rigid construction. This enables higher cylinder pressures to be achieved, paving the way for improved power output. The peak output of the new M turbocharged engine powering the BMW X5 M is, at 423 kW/575 hp, four per cent higher than that of its predecessor and is available between 6,000 and 6,500 rpm. The outstanding efficiency of the new M TwinPower Turbo engine is illustrated by its fuel consumption and emissions in the EU cycle: 11.1 litres per 100 km (25.5 mpg imp) and 258 g/km CO2 represent an improvement of more than 20 per cent over their predecessors.
