New BMW X3 M And X4 M Rendered Without Camo Look Credible

BMW may have unveiled the X3 M and X4 M in prototype guise last month, but the vehicles it showed were covered in a thin-layer of camouflage.

With this in mind, Bimmer Post has decided to render the two performance SUVs without any camo, providing us with an unimpeded look at the completed exterior designs.

Compared to typical X3 and X4 models, the visual modifications made to the M models are exactly what you’d expect. They include revised front and rear fascias, enlarged air intakes, beefed-up side skirts, bespoke wheels, and subtle lip spoilers extending from the rear of the roof. They certainly have an appealing amount of road presence.

BMW hasn’t confirmed final performance specifications for the duo, but has confirmed that they will both use a straight six-cylinder engine with a pair of turbochargers. According to previous reports, both models will deliver 454 hp and could be later joined by Competition variants that lift grunt towards the 500 hp mark. This engine will be reportedly used by the latest-generation M3 and M4.

Elsewhere, the new crossovers will be sold exclusively with an M xDrive all-wheel drive system similar to the one used by the all-conquering M5. Other modifications made over lesser X3s and X4s include an active M rear differential and sportier suspension that drops the ride height and improves handling.

BMW is remaining tight-lipped about when the new X3 M and X4 M will launch. However, we expect to see the pair unveiled in full early next year before deliveries commence in mid-2019.

    Credible? Yes. Incredible? No. Typical predictable BMW design. Looks decent, but nothing to get excited about nowadays.

    The newer X3’s seems to sorta resemble or to remind ME with the older X5s. which is not a bad thing at all.
