Yes, BMW's most athletic 500hp SUVs have arrived and they've come in the form of no-holds-barred M Competition tier of the X3M and X4M.
X3M Competition & X4M Competition
4.1 sec / 510ps / 600nm / 3L straight 6 twin, single scroll turbos (S58) / 8 speed auto M Steptronic / 4WD / 2,000kg + / 285kmh / X3 M Competition RM886,551.58 / X4 M Competition RM904,276.60
A newly developed M division derived 500hp / 600nm 3L 6 cylinder twin scroll turbo engine is featured in both the X3M Competition and X4M Competition enables either M SUVs to leap from zerotohundred in 4.1 seconds.
Mated to that is an 8 speed automatic box that BMW calls the M Steptropic, but with a new twist - It now has Drivelogic. Which are essentially 3 electable driving modes, Efficient / Sport / Sport Plus which when the 2 latter modes are activated allows for quicker shifting times, amps up engine performance and handling capabilities.
