BMW has revealed hotter versions of the new X3 and X4 crossovers. These include not only the X3 M and X4 M, but also its Competition siblings.
Speaking of which, the new X3 M Competition (Donington Grey metallic in the photos) gets kidney grille in high gloss black, track-ready cooling system on the bumpers, M-specific carbon fibre bracing package, gills in high gloss black, and ORVM caps in high gloss black. Buyers can also opt for M Carbon exterior package (front apron, air breather, mirror caps and diffuser). Rounding off the looks are M sport exhaust system with blacked-out pipes, and 21-inch light-alloy wheels. Besides the aforementioned color, the X3 M Competition is also available in Toronto Red metallic.

Interiors get the typical M treatment, including M leather steering wheel with red M1/M2 buttons, M-specific instruments, M selector lever, M Sport seats, M seat belts, and carbon fibre trim elements. ConnectedDrive navigation package including Navigation system Professional comes as standard.
Powering the new X3 M Competition is a 3.0-litre (2,993 cc) in-line 6-cylinder twin-turbo petrol engine, developing 375 kW (510 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 600 Nm of torque between 2,600-5,950 rpm. An 8-speed M Steptronic transmission sends power to all four wheels via an xDrive AWD system. A 0-100 km/h acceleration happens in 4.1 seconds while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h (285 optional).
Also included are M compound brakes, M-specific suspension with adaptive dampers, and Active M Differential.
BMW X4 M Competition
The red hot X4 M Competition gets a similar treatment as its X3 M Competition sibling, including the same colors. The photos here feature an example in Toronto Red metallic. The subtle spoiler on the tailgate is part of the M Carbon exterior package.

As with the X3 M Competition, the X4 M Competition too gets more sex appeal on the inside. The same 3.0L motor powers the X4 M Competition, with the same 510 hp and 600 Nm on offer. The claimed acceleration and top speed figures are exactly the same.
The non Competition, regular X3 M and X4 M too are powered by the aforementioned 3.0L twin-turbo motor, tuned to produce 353 kW (480 hp) at 6,250 rpm and 600 Nm of torque between 2,600-5,600 rpm. A 0-100 km/h acceleration is claimed to happen in 4.2 seconds (0.1 sec slower), while the top speed is limited to 250 km/h (280 optional).
