BMW S58: Over 500 HP BMW X3 M, / X4 M Competition?

How strong is the new BMW M six-cylinder engine S58 is? Little attention was a note that the outgoing M boss Frank van Meel already a few days ago and we are now once more under the magnifying glass take want. In the context of the presentation of the prototypes of BMW X3 M and X4 M said Frank van Meel, the following sentence: “This engine is going to exceed the performance by far of every X3 / X4 we’ve made up to today. And so, it’s going to exceed what you know from our competitors.

What is Frank van Meel says here, clearly, is not less than the announcement of a significant level of Performance for the BMW X3 and BMW X4 m. perhaps The main competitors are the Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 and its coupe variant, the model with 510 HP with 476 HP, as well as a S available. Over 500 HP, the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, will be on a few markets is also a major competitor.

Combine the testimony of Frank van Meel with another, the he in our Interview, the M5 Competition has made the route suddenly very clear: “Due to the success of M3 and M4 we want to in the future, the Competition models as quickly as possible.

It is 1 and 1 that could arise for BMW X3 M and X4 M in 2019, a double Lineup: just as in the case of the current M5, it may give to the market launch of the “ordinary” M-models at a level of performance with the GLC 63, a little later, BMW X3 M Competition and BMW X4 M Competition but may. This would need to offer over 500 HP, to be able to the “of the competitors, well-known Performance” to beat.

Apart from the performance increase, we may naturally expect a still sportier suspension, in order to bring the best possible racetrack Performance on the road. It remains to be seen whether the M GmbH in case of X3 and X4 are the same feat as with the M5 succeeds: the normal F90 dominated the competition almost at will, which is why the sharper BMW M5 Competition practically out of competition .
