Expected to launch in India this year alongside X6M.
Indian Cars Bikes has uploaded over a dozen spyshots of the exterior and interior of the BMW X5M, on Indian soil. Expected to launch this calendar year, the X5M complemented with the X6M will bolster BMW India’s M range of high-performance products, which includes the M3, M4, M5 and M6 at the moment.
Power for the X5M (and the X6M) will come from a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine capable of 575 hp between 6,000-6,500 rpm and 750 Nm of torque between 2,200-5,000 rpm, paired to an 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic driving all wheels.
BMW claims the X5M will accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds and onwards to an electronically limited top-speed of 250 km/h. The X6M too sports identical performance figures. Both performance SUVs will be kitted with aggressive bumpers with BMW’s aero kit, side skirts, quad-exhaust pipes, 20-inch alloy wheels, and M-branded steering wheel, gear lever, carbon-trimmed center console and single-piece sport seats up front.
BMW India launched the second generation X6 in India last week. The X6 is imported through the CBU route and is priced at INR 1.15 crores, ex-Showroom. The X5M and the X6M will also come through the CBU channel with prices upwards of INR 1.5 crores, ex-Showroom.
