BMW has increased the appeal of its X6 ‘Sports Activity Coupe’, with a host of new M Performance options.

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.

A choice of four 21-inch wheel packages are also available, with each wheel weighing 1.5kg less than the standard wheels and wearing run-flat tyres.

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.

The Analyser records throttle input, brake applications, speed, engine data and more; and it comes with an Apple or Android app for owners to access the data via Bluetooth.

BMW’s new M options for the X6 are now available to overseas buyers, with details yet to be confirmed for Australian customers.
