The 2023 BMW XM is a car that has too many feathers in its cap. And for the same reason, there’s quite a buzz across the global auto community, around the new flagship of BMW’s M performance division. The exhilaration, enthusiasm and urgency to lay hands on it, find reflection in endless posts all over the social media. 

The year has been quite eventful for the Munich-headquartered company, which played a hugely significant role during the WWII when it started manufacturing war vehicles and armaments. The BMW X1 2023, often dubbed as the ‘Next-gen Budget SUV’, stormed on the global auto scene with a thumping arrival. This was followed by another blitzkrieg in the form of the revamped 2023 BMW M3 Touring, which strikes a chord with the present time, while managing to retain its long legacy.
