BMW's M-associated models' hierarchy is the following:

* Full hardcore M model at the very top (in this case X6 M).
* Intermediary M Performance trim (such as this X6 M50i, or the X3 M40i, or the M550i) as the most powerful non-full M model, with a massaged engine, sportier suspension setup, usually 4WD, M Sport exterior and interior package with a few specific extra elements.
* M Sport trim which is basically just a sporty body kit and wheels, sporty suspension and sporty interior but no engine upgrade, and which can pretty much be ordered on any given BMW, even with the base engines.
