The boss is here and is putting everyone in their place: the all-new BMW X5. Its presence is clear for all to see – upright, powerful and elegant. The mighty one-piece double kidney grille hints at what will happen when it takes a deep breath. And the honed X design of the headlights leaves no doubt as to who will take the lead. Equipped with new technologies for more safety and maximum driving dynamics on every surface, the new BMW X5 knows where it’s going. And how to get there first.
For driving pleasure in two worlds: whichever engine you choose, efficiency and performance are the hallmarks of all three diesel and petrol engines in the BMW X5.A BMW TwinPower Turbo engine is available for the petrol model (xDrive50i). The eight-cylinder in the xDrive50i brings smoothness to the roads. When it comes to the diesel engines, the xDrive30d is the most efficient common rail diesel engine in its class. Equally efficient, yet with increased propulsion, is the BMW TwinPower Turbo xDrive40d. All of the engines feature the latest generation of BMW EfficientDynamics - a range of efficiency-increasing technologies that are implemented throughout the entire vehicle. The turbocharger with adjustable turbine geometry, the engine electronics controlled in parallel by several processors and the precise and fuel-saving direct petrol injection are just a few of the sophisticated technologies on offer.
You don't have to fly business class to be able to experience instant acceleration to top speeds. The eight-speed automatic transmission Steptronic not only ensures incredibly soft gear changes across all eight gears, it also significantly reduces fuel consumption.
The new eight-speed automatic transmission Steptronic shifts gears so fast and seamlessly you can hardly spot it on the rev counter. The additional gears reduce the engine's rev interval between shifts, so the transmission process is barely noticeable. At the same time, the engine is always held at the performance level at which it can optimally utilise its strength and efficiency. The eighth gear reduces the number of revolutions at high speeds, tangibly increasing comfort while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. The system is supported by the newly developed and more efficient converter clutch – even if you use the electronic gearshift lever to change gear manually.
Heading towards the sunset or illuminated by city lights: the BMW X5 instinctively draws gazes wherever it goes. Its long wheelbase, short overhangs and powerful contours express its elegantly sporting nature.
Prominent lines and sculpted edges are testament to the BMW X5's unmistakable presence and elegance. The front apron is almost entirely in body colour, and the dominant air vents and elegant matt-silver finished mouldings direct the viewer's attention to its wide stance on the road. The muscular, sculpted bonnet is a clear indication of the power that lies beneath while the dynamically contoured sides and L-shape rear lights with LED technology underscore the vehicle's elegance. The front and rear matt-aluminium finished scuff guards and the newly designed exhaust pipes complete the athletic and powerful appearance of the BMW X5's exterior. Whether captured under city lights or beams of sunlight, the design of sporting intent has never been so intensive.
Every landscape becomes worth seeing when you're viewing it from within the exclusive cabin of the BMW X5: fine woods, selected leathers and understated metal elements create an atmosphere of refined luxury.
Its elegance impresses, its function inspires. Intelligently positioned storage compartments and the ergonomically designed instrument panel provide user-friendly solutions to all of your needs. BMW iDrive is intuitively operated using the centrally positioned controller and Control Display to give you fast and simple access to all of the comfort and entertainment functions.
The optional and innovative Head-Up Display shows relevant information, for example current speed, directly in the driver's field of vision. The height and brightness of the display can be individually adjusted, so that the driver can fully concentrate on the traffic at all times.
A clear view in clear situations: up to five cameras give the BMW X5 a clear view of any situation.
Two front-end Side View cameras are integrated in the front bumper, one on the left and one on the right. Both images are displayed in the Control Display to give you a clear view when carrying out parking manoeuvres.
The Rear View camera also provides welcome support when parking. Interactive lane lines in the image inform the driver whether or not the parking space is large enough. The zoom function allows you to adjust the image so that you can attach a trailer to the tow bar without the need for further assistance.
The Top View cameras in the wing mirrors complete the camera package. Together with the data from the Rear View camera the system generates a bird's eye image of the BMW X5 and its current location. Whether you are entering or leaving a parking space, carrying out every manoeuvre is simple and safe.
A vehicle as flexible as you are: a third row of seats is quickly available whenever you need it. The two addition seats face forward and can be adjusted individually. And so that your extra guests feel completely comfortable there is also an additional heating unit for the footwell of the third row of seats
