BMW Teases X3 M And X4 M, Says They Are ‘Coming Soon’

BMW’s M family is about to become bigger, with the addition of the X3 M and X4 M. Teased on the brand’s social media pages, BMW says both models are ‘coming soon’, which points to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, early next month.

The Bavarians shared a video of the two being driven fast on tarmac and gravel. The vinyl wraps are still on, but we already saw the X3 M’s exterior last month, courtesy of the iDrive infotainment system, which revealed the more aggressive overall styling.

The X3 M and X4 M will share the same engine, with sources pointing to a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged inline-six, rated at over 450 PS (444 hp / 331 kW). The lump will work together with an eight-speed automatic gearbox and an M-tuned xDrive all-wheel drive system that’s said to be similar to the one found in the M5.

No performance numbers have been released yet, but both will be quicker than the M40i models, which sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just under 5 seconds. That said, expect a time of 4 seconds or less. In comparison, Mercedes‘ AMG GLCs have an official 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time of 3.8 seconds for the range-topping ‘S’ variants, which use a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 with 510 PS (503 hp / 375 kW).

    Let’s see if they get here before the X3/X4 facelifts cuz it feels like that’s right around the corner.

    I wonder who’ll be better: Merc-AMG, or M. AMG builds better engines, and BMW usually handles better. But AMG looks better (mostly). I’m interested!

        For some reason i’m not a fan of the quadrifogilo’s styling, alhtough it does handle better and have the power advantage (by 2) over the other two.

    Those wheels and tires look really narrow for something promising to be a BMW “M” product and take on the quadrifoglio, AMG’s of the world, etc.
    That said, the new X3 got excellent marks for its athleticism, many reviewers saying it’s getting very close to the Macan. Hopefully that’s true and this M version depreciates horribly so I can get a used one at 50% off rather sooner than later.
