The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine combines impressive performance with thrust that is maintained well into the high rev range, thus setting new standards in the vehicle segment of the BMW X4. The power unit with a forged steel crankshaft provides revving power that is typical for BMW M: Between 1,350 and 5,250 rpm, a maximum torque of 465 Nm is available. The 3.0-litre engine achieves its maximum output of 265 kW (360 hp) between 5,800 and 6,000 rpm. The BMW X4 M40i reaches 100 km/h from a standing start in just 4.9 seconds. This impressive performance is achieved with combined fuel consumption of 8.6 litres per 100 km and CO2 emissions of 199 g/km, demonstrating an exceptional balance of dynamics and efficiency – and once again highlighting the exceptional engineering know-how of BMW.
The specific exhaust system was optimised to ensure a charismatic, individually regulated sound and ideal exhaust back pressure. It has an intelligent valve control and, thanks to the Black Chrome tailpipe finisher on both sides, is recognisable in an instant.
