BMW Malaysia today announced the arrival of the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport to the Malaysian market.
On the exterior, the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport features new three-dimensional BMW kidney grille slats with LED lighting (Iconic Glow) – illuminating the kidney grilles and offering a unique optical effect.
The new Adaptive LED headlights are also slimmer, accompanied by daytime running lights with a stylised X design that emphasises the width of the SAC. Other than that, the front apron also comes with new triangular air intakes with vertically arranged Air Curtains.
From the side, the aerodynamic silhouette of the New BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport is characterised by a low coupé roofline and long wheelbase.
This is accompanied by 22-inch M light alloy wheels 747 with staggered tyres, as well as blue M Sport brakes to further accentuate its hallmark sportiness.
As for the rear, we have new sculptural taillights that are underscored by new rear aprons with skid plate in Pearl Chrome. Additionally, the M Aerodynamic package is included as standard.
As for the interior, the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport sees a noticeable redesign – featuring a more efficient instrument panel that complements the BMW Curved Display and a light bar that amplifies the already sleek and sophisticated ambience.
With a 12.3-inch Information Display and 14.9-inch high-resolution touchscreen Control Display as standard, the instrument panel now has a clearer structure and is focused only on the essentials, making controls operation much more efficient. All control elements below the Central Display and the fresh-air vents are integrated.
Additionally, the trim strip above the instrument panel has become wider in size, emphasising the horizontal layout while providing an elegant backdrop for the large BMW Curved Display.
Another visual highlight in the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport is the redesigned centre console, which comes with a tidier layout and provides more touch-sensitive function keys.
Gear changes are now performed using a rocker switch, placed optimally within the control panel in the centre console alongside the BMW Controller. Completing the look of the interior are the M leather steering wheel and BMW Individual Merino leather upholstery.
Comfort seats are provided for the front – electrically adjustable and equipped with active seat ventilation. As for passengers in the rear, roller sun blinds for the rear side windows are included. Additionally, the large panoramic glass roof and the standard inclusion of the light bar.
Powering the new BMW X6 xDrive40i M Sport is the same 3.0 litre turbocharged straight-six petrol engine as before, but with a new mild-hybrid technology. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the 48V mild-hybrid engine delivers a combined output of 381 hp and 540 Nm of torque to all four wheels, allowing the new X6 to achieve greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions. Century sprint is achieved in 5.4 seconds, with top speed capped at 250 km/h.
Also part of the package is the Adaptive M Suspension, giving drivers increased driving dynamics potential with the option of switching between Comfort and Sport driving modes. Tuned adaptive dampers that are regulated individually and efficiently through each mode further complement the sportified suspension.
