BMW India has launched the 2015 BMW X6 M and 2015 BMW X5 M in Chennai today. Prices start from INR 1.55 crores for the BMW X5 M and INR 1.6 crores for the BMW X6 M (ex-showroom).
Both, the BMW X5 M and X6 M get a kidney grille with double slats, large three-part air inlet in the front apron, and M twin tailpipes. Inside, the two cars get hallmark BMW driver-oriented design, new multi-functional M leather steering with integrated aluminum gearshift paddles, leather-trimmed BMW Individual instrument panel, center console with knee pads, M-specific gear selector lever, driving dynamics buttons and sill finishers with model lettering as standard provisions.
Moving on to engines, both, the X5 M and X6 M, are powered by a 4.4-liter twin turbo V8 engine, which produces 575 hp and 750 Nm of torque. It is paired to an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, sending torque to all four wheels via the xDrive system. This enables the X5 M and the X6 M to reach 0-100 km/h in 4.2 seconds, before reaching their limited top-speeds of 250 km/h.
BMW India also opened its first M Studio in the country, where both models will be exclusively available. It is located in Mumbai, and plans to open further outlets in Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Ahmedabad, Pune and Hyderabad.
