The BMW XM is an M car for those who want to stand out from the crowd, and demand the highest of standards


The BMW XM is the first M-only car since the M1 supercar of 1979. If you’re wondering what’s so special about that, the BMW M Division is the brand’s specialist motorsport and sports car division that was born in 1972. It’s responsible for taking BMW’s sporty 3 Series and 5 Series sedans and completely redeveloping them into the fiery M3 and M5 high performance sedans, amongst others. The M Division rarely designs a completely new car from the ground up, and now, four decades after the BMW M1, the BMW XM is only the second car in the brand’s history without a non-M counterpart in the lineup.

Its commanding styling gives it a road presence like nothing else. Driving an XM is the perfect way for the bold individual to stand out, and to experience the best that BMW has to offer.

The XM’s 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine with electric drive produces an impressive 197 horsepower on its own. But when combined with the electric motors that make up the plug-in hybrid system, the XM whips out a mighty 653 horsepower. This gives the car some truly exhilarating performance, allowing it to go from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.

But when you want to settle down to a nice quiet cruise, the XM can seamlessly switch to Full Electric mode, and the M Hybrid Drive system in the XM offers a driving range of 88km from its 25.7kWh battery, giving you the choice of zero emissions driving when you need it. It works together with the engine to deliver an official fuel consumption figure of 1.6 litres per 100km, and energy is further recuperated via the regenerative braking system, which converts kinetic energy produced from braking into electrical energy, and stores it in the battery.

The XM is certainly an unconventional choice for the city, but its unparalleled luxury delivers great appeal for those with an urban lifestyle who desire a spacious car. Its Adaptive M suspension and active roll control offers the perfect blend of sporty handling without compromising on ride comfort. The Integral Active Steering and all-wheel-drive system meanwhile enhances stability and traction, allowing you to take on any road with confidence.

Inside, the XM’s cabin evokes the ambience of a comforting lounge, with its perforated leather ventilated seats offering maximum comfort for driver and passengers alike. The mood is further heightened with the M Lounge concept, featuring 100 customisable LEDs that light up the cabin roof, delivering an atmospheric experience like no other.

Meanwhile, the M-specific BMW Operating System 8 in the XM is designed for ease of use, with features accessible via the voice-activated Intelligent Personal Assistant, and Remote Software Upgrade allowing for the latest updates to be sent over-the-air to your car. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are also incorporated, ensuring that you can stay connected and informed without needing to lift a finger. It’s got all the connectivity you would expect, plus lots more that you didn’t realise you needed.
