BMW is looking to close the 50th year Of ‘M’ division with a bang by launching two of its hottest performance products in India. It has introduced the facelifted version of the locally built M340i sedan and its newest global offering, the XM, here. Their prices are as follows:
|New BMW M340i||Rs 69.2 lakh|
|BMW XM||Rs 2.6 crore|
What’s new with the M340i?
The most performance-oriented version of the regular 3 Series now gets a crisper look with mild aesthetic updates to the front with new headlights. Its more significant update is inside the cabin with the new integrated displays, as seen in the i4, with the new BMW i-Drive 8 infotainment system and ADAS features. Under its hood, you get the same 3-litre turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine putting out 387PS of power.
What’s the XM?
The XM is a new standalone product from BMW M. It is powered by a new turbo-hybrid 4.4-litre V8 powertrain producing 653PS, making it the most powerful M road car to date. The looks may be divisive for the fairly large and heavy SUV, but performance is undeniable with a claimed nought to 100kmph sprint time of 4.3 seconds. It also packs the latest interior technology that BMW has to offer with large displays and connected car features.
Bookings and deliveries
Bookings for these models are now underway and we expect only limited units to be available at a time. The facelifted M340i units will start reaching customers in January 2023 while the CBU import, the XM, will begin arriving in May 2023.
