Read more about the BMW is Open to Making Competition Pack Versions of its M SUVs at AutoGuide.com.We know that BMW is in the midst of expanding its M offerings to new models in its range, but the German automaker isn’t stopping there.
Speaking to BMW M boss Frank van Meel on the floor of the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show, we learned the automaker is open to developing a Competition Package for M-badged SUVs like the X5M and X6M. The ‘Competition Package’ was developed for the M3 and M4 and pulls a little extra performance out of the cars thanks to an output bump to 444 hp, lightweight seats, wider 20-inch wheels and some other subtle design touches.
'Well Competition is a strong growing market in demand, and that goes for every M,' van Meel said. 'So that’s also a feature we’re going to use more often in the future. And that does not exclude SUVs.'
