The new BMW X3 M and X4 M Competition22/06/2021
BMW M GmbH has unveiled the new BMW X3 M Competition and new BMW X4 M Competition – the refreshed high-performance models now offering an M experience that is even more exhilarating.
The latest generation versions reaffirm the BMW X3 M Competition and new BMW X4 M Competition as standout models in their respective Sports Activity Vehicle and Sports Activity Coupé segments. The extensive revisions offer not only a fresher, more purposeful on-road presence, but also increased pulling power and a new operating concept, as well as enhanced interiors.
Most noticeable is the look of both models. They share the new design features drawn from the BMW X3 and BMW X4 and further strengthen their bold new appearances with purposeful M specific bodystyling.
They feature the most powerful BMW in-line six-cylinder petrol engine. Delivering 510hp and 650Nm of torque, both the BMW X3 M Competition and BMW X4 M Competition can sprint from 0 to 62mph in only 3.8 seconds – an improvement of 0.3 seconds compared to their predecessors.
New sports seats and upholstery, together with the control island from the BMW M3 and BMW M4, are at the heart of the updated, modern interiors, while the inclusion of standard features such as BMW Live Cockpit Professional with fully digital display cluster and two 12.3-inch displays, and Harman Kardon surround-sound entertainment system improve driver comfort and convenience.
The BMW X3 M Competition will cost from £85,100*** with the new BMW X4 M Competition starting at £86,860***. UK customer deliveries of these new models will commence in September 2021.
Larger BMW kidney grille and a more striking front section
The new BMW X3 M Competition and the new BMW X4 M Competition have the enlarged BMW kidney grille with a one-piece frame and headlights that are around 10mm flatter. A black bar which houses the front-facing iCam lens provides visual separation of the BMW kidney grille, the frame of which is also finished in high-gloss black, as are the M double kidney bars. The radiator grille also features a vehicle-specific logo: X3 M or X4 M. In addition to the standard adaptive LED headlights with Matrix function, BMW Laser Light with a range of up to 650 metres is now also available as an optional extra.
BMW M GmbH has designed the M specific front apron to be even more striking. One particularly standout feature is the new, vertically arranged and elongated side air intakes: these are angled down towards the spoiler lip and then the centre of the vehicle, where they follow the hexagonal shape of the central air intake. They are framed by trim elements in high-gloss black, which is also used for the caps of the aerodynamically optimised M exterior mirrors and the characteristic M gills integrated in the air breathers, as well as the rear spoiler on the BMW X4 M Competition.
New rear apron ands exclusive new paint finishes
The BMW X3 M Competition has the full LED rear lights of the refreshed BMW X3 with a black surround and narrower illuminated graphics. The lower section of the rear apron is M specific and finished in high-gloss black. The large diffuser is flanked on the right and left by the tailpipe pairs of the M sports exhaust system, which are finished in black chrome.
The new rear apron of the BMW X4 M Competition features a wide insert in the shape of a large anvil. Like the lateral air‑curtain‑panels, which also accommodate the new vertical reflectors, this is finished in high-gloss black. The two pairs of tailpipes in black chrome also frame the diffuser on the BMW X4 M Competition. In addition to Carbon Black metallic and Brooklyn Grey metallic, there are two new paint finishes reserved exclusively for the X3 M Competition and X4 M Competition models – Marina Bay Blue metallic and Sao Paulo Yellow. In addition, a wide range of BMW Individual paint finishes are available for the first time, such as the matt finish Frozen Marina Bay Blue metallic.
