On December 10, BMW India will reveal the pricing for its upgraded M340i xDrive sedan, the new X7 facelift, and the XM premium SUV.
BMW is all set to introduce the new M340i, X7, and XM in the country next month. The XM debuted as the sole M model in May this year, whereas both the M340i xDrive and the X7 underwent mid-life facelift updates in 2022. So, let's have a quick look at the upcoming models.
Since the M1, there have been two solo M models. The XM is the first M vehicle to feature a plug-in hybrid drivetrain, which comprises a 4.4-litre V8 twin-turbocharged petrol engine, an electric motor, and an eight-speed automated transmission. The hybrid powertrain is capable of producing a maximum of 653bhp and 800Nm of peak torque. The XM has a top speed of 270km/h and can go from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.
The updated X7, which was unveiled in April this year, gets redesigned front and rear ends, along with split headlights, bumpers, and rear lights. It also features a single-piece curved display unit, which incorporates the most recent version of BMW's iDrive system's 12.3-inch driver information display and 14.9-inch central information hub. The SUV's future generation is anticipated to retain the same petrol and diesel engines.
The M340i xDrive
The powerful M340i xDrive comes with inverted L-shaped daytime running lights, a new set of alloy wheels, and revamped bumpers. A new single-piece curved digital display, which includes a 12.3-inch driver screen and a 14.9-inch infotainment touchscreen, is the centrepiece of the interior and features the latest eighth-generation iDrive system. The updated sedan is powered by a 3.0-litre six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, with 500Nm of torque and 369bhp.
