Alongside the launch of the BMW X3 M Competition, as well as the BMW M8 Coupe and Gran Coupe, BMW Malaysia today also introduced the X4 M over here in Malaysia, available solely in the Competition flavour.

The BMW X4 M Competition is priced at RM904,276.60 on the road, without insurance, and inclusive of SST exemptions. With the Balloon Financing Plan from BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia, the X4 M Competition can be yours starting at RM10,318 per month.

POWERTRAIN

Under the hood of the BMW X4 M Competition is the same engine found in the X3 M, the S58 three-litre twin-turbocharged inline-six engine. The new powertrain will also be featured in the forthcoming BMW M3 and M4, due for its global debut next month.

  • Engine: S58 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo straight-six
  • Transmission: Eight-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission with Drivelogic
  • Drivetrain: M xDrive all-wheel drive
  • Max horsepower: 510 hp @ 6,250 RPM
  • Max torque: 600 Nm @ 2,600 – 5,950 RPM
  • 0-100 km/h: 4.1 seconds
  • Top speed: 250 km/h (electronically limited)

Just like its more upright twin, the X4 M Competition features additional M Performance Parts to deliver an enjoyable driving experience, even on a car of its weight and height. These include three Drivelogic transmission modes (Efficient, Sport, and Sport Plus), adaptive dampers, engine compartment strut brace and stiffer stabilisers, as well as M Compound Brakes made from composite materials for extra weight reduction and improved stopping power.

Power is sent to all four wheels via the M-specific xDrive all-wheel drive system and Active M Differential, which can send most of its power to the rear wheels in Sports mode. In Conventional mode, power is distributed variably depending on grip levels and requirements.

EXTERIOR

Befitting its M badge, the X4 M Competition is also dressed-up appropriately with more aggressive front and rear aprons, the former featuring hexagonal air intakes that channels air over to the front brakes. At the back, the X4 M comes with a slim diffuser finished in high-gloss black, along with an “aerodynamic spoiler”, also finished in black.

Otherwise, the exterior equipment list is identical to that of the X3 M Competition, which includes:

  • Adaptive LED headlights with high-beam assistant
  • LED taillights
  • 21-inch bicolour M light alloy wheels
  • M Sport exhaust system with quad black chrome tailpipes
  • Black kidney grille surrounds, side gills, wing mirror caps
  • Exterior colour choices: Alpine White, Black Sapphire, Donington Grey, Phytonic Blue, Sophisto Grey, Toronto Red

INTERIOR

Similarly, the cabin of the BMW X4 M Competition has also been spruced up with a myriad of BMW M-specific touches for the complete M experience, such as:

  • M Sport seats with illuminated M badge, active seat ventilation, and lumbar support
  • Premium Leather Merino upholstery with BMW M colours decorative seams
  • M leather steering wheel with shift paddles, red M Drive buttons, red push-start button
  • Redesigned M gear selector lever
  • M seatbelts, pedals, and knee pad
  • M-specific instrument cluster
  • Head-up display with M-specific display modes
  • 10.25-inch Control Display infotainment system with Apple CarPlay connectivity, Concierge Service, Teleservices, Remote Services, Intelligent Emergency Call, BMW Gesture Control
  • M door sill plates
  • Interior trim finishers in carbon fibre

Luggage capacity on the X4 M Competition also remains identical to the regular BMW X4, with a rear cargo space of 525 litres, expandable to 1,430 litres with the rear seats folded down.

Depending on which exterior colour is chosen, the new BMW X4 M Competition can be specified with either Black, Sakhir Orange, or Adelaide Grey for its Leather Merino interior upholstery.
