The all-new BMW X4 M Competition is on stage at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show these days, where it hopes to attract more attention and why not, nab some new orders from visitors, who will be allowed in from this Saturday, September 14.
Finished in red shade that almost looks orange-y under the strong lights at BMW’s stand, the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 S Coupe challenger flaunts its carbon fiber add-ons and colorful interior with more red accents.
Breathing air from behind the normally-sized grille (well, compared to other BMW products introduced recently, that is) is a 3.0-liter, twin-turbo petrol engine. The six-banger develops 510 PS (503 hp / 375 kW) and 598 Nm (441 lb-ft) of torque, rocketing the X4 M Competition to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.0 seconds and up to a 285 km/h (177 mph) top speed when choosing the M Driver’s Package from the options list.
The ’regular’ X4 M packs a lesser version of the same engine that churns out 479 PS (472 hp / 352 kW) and an identical torque number. It’s only one tenth of a second slower to 100 km/h (62 mph) and maxes out at 280 km/h (174 mph).
BMW is accepting orders for the two X4 M models, as well as the X3 M and X3 M Competition in several markets. On this side of the pond, the X4 M Competition comes at $81,395, including the $995 destination and handling charge, whereas the non-Competition model is $7,000 cheaper. Choosing the more practical X3 M will set you back $70,896, while for the X3 M Competition, you’ll have to fork out at least $77,896.
