Local pricing and equipment details for BMW’s barnstorming X6 M, which arrives in Australian showrooms this December, were announced today.

The X6 M will be priced from $179,900. It joins the X6 Sports Activity Coupé range which has, thanks to 734 customer deliveries in its first year, exceeded BMW sales forecasts and become a niche sales hit.

“The X6 delivered exactly what a select group of Australian luxury buyers were crying out for,” says Stavros Yallouridis, the Australian head of BMW Group Australia.

“Their first priority was a car with coupe design, agility and performance, street credibility and uniqueness. In addition, they appreciated the versatility offered by a sports activity vehicle.

“Many X6 customers are entrepreneurs or self employed professionals with one or no kids, and new to the BMW brand. They told us that traditional SUV styling was boring and normal coupes offered less versatility than the X6.

“Now with the arrival of the X6 M, we’re able to offer an M version which will tempt performance-oriented buyers considering an ML 63 AMG or Cayenne Turbo with benefits such as faster acceleration, less weight and better fuel consumption.

“If on the other hand maximum practicality is a must, the X5 M arriving in January will be the perfect alternative,” he says.

The X5 M will be priced from $172,900.
