2020 BMW X3 And X4 M Get An Early Outing, Will Offer Up To 503 HP

BMW has been teasing the 2020 X3 M and X4 M for several months, but the automaker has inadvertently posted several images of them online.

The pictures were quickly removed, but BMW Blog managed to grab a couple of screen shots before this occurred. Thanks to their quick action, we can see the high-performance models will have a new twin-turbo six-cylinder engine that produces 473 hp (352 kW / 479 PS). The photos also mention an X3 M Competition with an upgraded engine boasting 503 hp (375 kW / 510 PS).

The engine is expected to displace 3.0-liters and the images confirm it will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Other performance features include an M xDrive all-wheel drive system, an M Sport differential and an adaptive M suspension.

On the styling front, both models will have an aggressive fascia with a gloss black grille and three large air intakes. The crossovers also have aerodynamic mirror caps, sportier side skirts and large wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system with blue brake calipers. Other special touches include unique spoilers and a four-tailpipe sports exhaust system.

Interior changes are less extensive, but drivers will find a unique gear selector and a digital instrument cluster that tops out at 205 mph (330 km/h). We can also see carbon fiber trim and a three-spoke steering wheel with contrast stitching and two red M buttons.

The Competition variant goes even further as it has extended Shadowline trim, an M Sport exhaust system and 21-inch wheels with an orbit gray finish. Drivers will also find M Sport seats and, presumably, special interior badging.

We can expect more details about the X3 and X4 M shortly, so stay tuned.

    Of all manufacturers BMW seems to be the worst at keeping their upcoming models under wraps. 7 series, Z4 and now the X3M/X4M are just the most recent examples of leaks on their own websites.
