BMW proves worthy of its position as the global leader through the return of the BMW X5. The founder of the premium Sports Activity Vehicle segment and the global market leader in its class sets new standards in powerful design, luxury, cutting-edge innovation, and sheer driving pleasure with the introduction of the third generation BMW X5. The defining features of the new BMW X5 are exclusive exterior design characters, high-quality materials, and innovative comfort-enhancing functions.
The new BMW X5 has an evolutionary exterior design from its predecessor. Its powerful front fascia with twin circular headlight units extending into the BMW kidney grille and elegantly stretched silhouette, redefine its dominance as the boss of all SAVs. The design optimizes the vehicle’s aerodynamic properties integrated harmoniously into its overall design language, including Air Curtains, Air Breathers and Aero Blades for the rear pillars.
Enhanced Luxurious Interiors
As compared to the BMW X5’s predecessor, the third generation model has increased spaciousness, airiness and luxurious high quality materials in the interior. The seating position gives the driver a very commanding driving position in a very ergonomic cabin. It has a low-set instrument panel with horizontal lines extending into the door trim and additional trim surface. Furthermore, it has an enhanced interior variability thanks to 40:20:40 split/folding rear seat backrest. Boot capacity is 650 – 1,870 litres.
The new BMW X5 also has automatic tailgate operation as standard, which can be opened and closed by remote control function. The rear comfort seats can now be moved fore and aft. The backrest angle of the rear seats can also be adjusted based on individual preference.
