BMW is taking high-luxury performance vehicles to the next level with the BMW XM. Since its debut, the most powerful M-model has caused quite a stir in the upmarket performance segment. And in case you wonder, here are five reasons why the XM is changing our perception of high-end luxury vehicles.
Aesthetically, the BMW XM has a futuristic design with an unconventional shape, paying tribute to the classic BMW M1. Details such as a side accent band, illuminated diagonal strips in the taillights, and the laser-engraved double BMW logo on the rear window make a lasting impression.
Powerful Hybrid Motor
At the heart of the XM is a first-of-its-kind engine configuration. The XM is powered by a 4.4-litre V8 combustion engine paired with an electric motor integrated into the eight-speed M Steptronic transmission. This system puts out a total output of 653hp/800Nm.
Innovative Exterior Design Elements
Upon close examination of the BMW XM, you’ll find striking details and remarkable craftsmanship. Starting from the hexagonal exhaust pipes stacked vertically to the new taillights that extend far into the side, the kidney frame, accent band, rear diffusor inlays, and 23-inch rims in beautiful and expressive “night gold.”
Inside the cabin, the BMW XM is equally impressive. A well-crafted interior with a three-dimensional prism roof liner illuminated by 100 LED units offers a luxurious driving experience. Meanwhile, the diamond-shaped headrest structures and stitching patterns convey comfort and luxury, while the vintage leather upholstery covering the door panels and dashboard provides a tactile experience.
In addition to its imposing profile, the BMW XM is the most advanced and powerful M model in its portfolio. It’s equipped with innovative technology from the latest generation of BMW iDrive, BMW’s advanced driver assistance system, and a heads-up display. For greater convenience and an intuitive driving experience, the XM has the latest advanced iDrive system, allowing for seamless integration with your smartphone. The driver assistance system also enhances your driving experience, providing increased safety and peace of mind.
