The German carmaker says the new options list will suit buyers looking to give their SUV “an even sharper sporting edge”, including a chance to boost the engine’s power.
Both the xDrive30d diesel and xDrive35i petrol models can now be ordered with more go as part of a “Power Kit”, which also includes an upgraded brake package.
The diesel gains 14kW and 25Nm to arrive at a new output of 204kW/585Nm, and the Power Kit improves the 0-100km/h time by 0.2 seconds.
The petrol-powered X6 winds the performance dial up even more, gaining 15kW and 50Nm for a new output of 240kW/450Nm while improving the 0-100km/h sprint by up to 0.5 seconds.
Both Power Kits come with an upgrade to 18-inch front brake rotors, and both retain the same fuel figures as their respective standard models (6.0 l/100km for the xDrive30d, 8.5-8.6 l/100km for the xDrive35i).
A ‘retrofit’ kit allows current X6 owners to opt for a new 19-inch brake package complete with blue callipers wearing the BMW M logo, without altering the engine’s performance.
New exterior options include a louder mechanical ‘soundtrack’ through an upgraded BMW M exhaust system, BMW M mirror caps, a new grille with black slats and an aerodynamic package including front splitter, rear diffuser and rear spoiler.
Interior options include a BMW M Performance carbon trim pack, an Alcantara steering wheel with red ‘centre’ mark at the top, stainless steel pedals and BMW M floor mats.
Owners can now opt for the BMW M Performance Drive Analyser, which monitors and records performance figures from track days or economy figures during every day driving.
BMW’s new M options for the X6 are now available to overseas buyers, with details yet to be confirmed for Australian customers.
