  • BMW to launch updated M340i and X7, and XM on December 10. 
  • M340i and X7 will be getting their first midlife update in India.
  • The XM is the carmaker’s standalone M performance SUV. 

Mark your calendars, ladies and gentlemen. BMW will be launching not one nor two, but three cars in the country on December 10. The X7 flagship SUV and M340i performance saloon will be getting their midlife updates, while the carmaker will not waste any time in bringing its latest standalone M offering, the XM. 

Here’s a brief overview of what each model brings to the table:

Facelifted BMW M340i

The facelifted 3 Series will first be brought to India in its top-spec performance trim, the M340i. What it brings to the table is a sharper-looking fascia with a slightly larger kidney grille and a radical change to the interior layout featuring BMW’s i-Drive 8 user interface. The heart of the matter, a 387PS 3-litre six-cylinder turbo-petrol engine, is likely to remain unchanged. You can read more about the updated 3 Series in our detailed unveiling story

Facelifted BMW X7 

The most polarising thing about the updated X7 when it comes to India is going to be its front end with the XXL grille and split LED headlamps. But take that out of consideration and what you get is a smart-looking SUV and a fairly opulent cabin featuring BMW’s i-Drive 8 system. No major mechanical changes are expected, so it could carry on with its 3-litre petrol and diesel engines. More details about the facelifted X7 can be found here


The highlight of these three launches would be BMW’s standalone M model, the XM SUV. Once again, the exterior design might split opinions, but the XM packs some serious punch. Underneath the bonnet is a plug-in hybrid 4.4-litre twin turbo V8 putting out 653PS, making it one of the most powerful BMWs ever until now!
