2022 BMW X3 M and X4 M facelift design
Like the rest of the range, both the X3 M and X4 M get fresh styling tweaks. Most notable is the larger new ‘kidney’ grille, which is made up of a single piece rather than being split in two, along with a restyled front bumper.
Both cars get a redesigned rear diffuser, with the X3 M also getting new taillights. There’s a fresh set of black-tinted chrome exhaust pipes as well.
You can have both the X3 M and X4 M in new Marina Bay Blue or Sao Paulo Yellow paint finishes as well, which are reserved for M cars exclusively.
2022 BMW X3 M and X4 M facelift engine
There’s no obvious change to the 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six engine powering the BMW X3 M and X4 M. It still produces 510hp and 650Nm of torque in Competition guise — the only form you’ll be able to buy in the UK.
That said, both the X3 M and X4 M Competition are 0.3 seconds quicker to 60mph than before — both will complete the sprint in 3.8 seconds — suggesting some improvements have been made, although BMW isn’t saying what exactly…
As before, both the X3 M and X4 M Competition cars are limited to 155mph.
2022 BMW X3 M and X4 M facelift interior and infotainment
The BMW X3 M and X4 M get some upgrades to the interior in line with the recent tweaks BMW’ made to the standard X3 and X4. Most of note is a streamlined centre console, which brings climate controls into one sleeker row rather than a split mass of buttons.
You’ll get two 12.3-inch displays too — one replacing the analogue dials and gauges — along with the central infotainment system.
There’s more carbon fibre dotted all over the shop as well, and the choice of three leather interior options.
2022 BMW X3 M and X4 M facelift price and release date
Pricing for the refreshed BMW X3 M Competition starts from £85,100, with the X4 M Competition starting at £86,860.
Deliveries will start in September if you get your order in now.
