The new BMW X5 continues to strengthen its leading position within the competitive environment of premium vehicles. A completely revised range of engines, the standard eight-speed automatic transmission and innovative driver assistance systems ensure that the driving pleasure characteristic of the Sports Activity Vehicle offers even greater fascination.
Specific design modifications authentically emphasize the enhanced sporting character. New exterior and interior colors as well as light-alloy wheels underline the vehicle’s exclusive style. Unsurpassed efficiency gives added quality to the BMW X5 that impresses both in terms of appearance as well as driving pleasure. In spite of significantly improved performance, fuel consumption and emission levels are up to 10 percent lower compared to its predecessor.
With the arrival of the first-generation BMW X5, the Sports Activity Vehicle segment was established. The new BMW X5 substantiates its leading edge status through innovative drive technology, first-class equipment features, expressive design and premium quality.
The BMW X5 xDrive50i with a V8 engine featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo and direct petrol injection (High Precision Injection) is, with an output of 300 kW/407 bhp, positioned at the top of the model portfolio. The new BMW X5 xDrive35i is powered by a 225 kW/306 bhp straight six-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo, High Precision Injection and VALVETRONIC.
A new generation of engines also helps the BMW X5’s two diesel variants achieve a most favorable ratio between driving performance and fuel consumption. The BMW X5 xDrive40d’s all-aluminum straight six-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo and Common Rail direct injection develops a maximum power output of 225 kW/306 bhp. The ongoing advancement in the reduction of fuel consumption and emission levels is the result of the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy, which has been consistently implemented on all BMW X models.
As part of BMW ConnectedDrive, the new BMW X5 offers a multitude of unique driver assistance systems and services for optimizing comfort and safety as well as for the use of infotainment functions. More than ever before, the BMW X5 offers superior and dynamic road performance. Thanks to the BMW xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive technology, it also offers supreme off-road qualities.
This permanent four-wheel drive system, which comes as standard, ensures variable adjustment of drive torque between the front and rear axles. Its electronic control system and integrated (DSC) Dynamic Stability Control facilitate an unequalled rapid response to different driving situations. Every tendency for the vehicle to oversteer or understeer is immediately detected so that appropriate adjustments can be made to ensure stability before the driver even notices the necessity to intervene.
