(from BMW Press
Release) The original – now even greater supremacy: The
new BMW X5.
More dynamic, efficient and luxurious than ever, the new BMW X5
continues to strengthen its leading position within the competitive
environment of four-wheel driven 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 emphasise the enhanced sporting character. New
exterior and interior colours 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 favourable ratio between driving performance
and fuel consumption. The BMW X5 xDrive40d’s all-aluminium straight
six-cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo and Common Rail direct
injection develops a maximum power output of 225 kW/306 bhp. In
spite of a 15 kW higher output than its predecessor, average fuel
consumption in the EU test cycle has been reduced by 0.8 percent to
7.5 litres/100 km. The new BMW X5 xDrive30d has an even lower
average consumption. This six-cylinder diesel with an output
increased by 7 kW to 180 kW/245 bhp is contented with 7.4 litres/100
km in the EU test cycle. All engines comply with the EU5 emission
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.
Moreover, the innovative power of the world’s most successful
premium car builder is also evident in the multiplicity of driver
assistance systems, which are available for the new BMW X5 as part
of BMW ConnectedDrive and are unique within the competitive
environment. The BMW X5 is the only vehicle in its competitive
segment that can be equipped with the Head-Up Display and the
Surround View system. In addition, this Sports Activity Vehicle now
offers a choice of Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function,
Lane Departure Warning, Speed Limit Info and Side View.
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. In this way, iDrive is able to
optimise in advance both driving dynamics and traction on slippery
surfaces. The new BMW X5 features a modified version of this
four-wheel technology. With a revised, more neutrally interpreted
basic configuration, xDrive now contributes even more effectively
towards an increase in driving dynamics.
The interior of the new BMW X5 is fitted as standard with five
comfortable seats with an option of third-row seats to accommodate
two further passengers. Luggage compartment capacity can also be
flexibly adapted to suit varying requirements. By completely folding
down the 40:60 split rear seats, storage space can be increased from
620 litres to a maximum of 1,750 litres. Even when seven seats are
in use, a storage space of 200 litres is still available.
Design: Well-balanced proportions
and clear signs of enhanced sporting performance.
The body design of the
new BMW X5 is characterised by well-balanced proportions that
accentuate both the vehicle’s powerful elegance and its agility. A
long wheelbase, short front and rear body overhangs and large wheels
provide a visual balance of the front and rear section of the
vehicle, this serving as an indication of permanent four-wheel drive
technology. The angles of all pillars have been designed to sweep
upwards to merge at an imaginary vanishing point at the roofline,
supporting the impression of a body that is powerfully supported by
the front and rear wheels.
Furthermore, the sides of the vehicle are elegantly stretched
through the dominance of horizontal lines. The surface of the bonnet
flows seamlessly into the waistline. The prominent, gently inclined
contour line at door handle level extends from the front wheel
arches to the rear of the vehicle. Square-shaped, powerfully
contoured wheel arches symbolise stability and presence.
This Sports Activity Vehicle boasts a dynamic, robust but elegant
appearance, its design reflecting superior sporting performance on
tarmac, supreme off-road potential and the premium character of a
luxury class vehicle.
Newly conceived, intensely
road-oriented front end.
With its distinctively
contoured bonnet, large-sized BMW kidney grille and dual round
headlights slightly cut off at the top, the new BMW X5 boasts a
strikingly expressive front end that symbolises power and presence.
The new interpretation of this look, which is characteristic of BMW
X models, comprises in particular the structure of the front apron
and the position of the fog lamps featured as standard. Due to an
increased number of elements painted in matching body colour, the
front end gives the impression of being nearer to the road surface.
At the same time, the increased size of both the inner and the two
outer air intakes indicates the boosted engine output. Hence, the
newly conceived front end accentuates the BMW X5’s further enhanced
The black plastic trim at the bottom edge of the body is now
considerably narrower. A matt-finished silver underride protection
extending across the entire width of the middle air intake, thereby
emphasising the muscular features of this Sports Activity Vehicle,
additionally accentuates the new BMW X5’s robust character.
Together with the dual round headlights, fog lamps, which are now
situated higher and closer to the BMW kidney grille, form a
triangular design typical of BMW X models. The visual unity of light
sources resulting from this configuration serves to symbolise a
particularly intensive focus on the road. The new BMW X5’s headlight
units strongly emphasise the exceptionally high quality. The
technology-oriented structure of the cylinder-shaped light sources
featured by the optional Xenon headlights is highlighted by a black
matt-finished trim. Furthermore, LED corona rings serve as position
lights and daytime driving lights. BMW’s characteristic daytime
driving light design is distinctively enhanced by the bright white
beam emitted by this light source.
Rear end with a powerful, sporting
Here too, an increased
number of surfaces painted in matching body colour give the rear end
of the new BMW X5 a particularly elegant and at the same time
sporting appearance. The newly conceived rear apron takes up the
graphic structure of the front end. The intricately designed
surrounds of the tailpipes, which are located far to the side, are
painted in body colour, underlining the vehicle’s premium character.
In the centre, a matt-finished silver underride protection
emphasises the robustness and off-road suitability of the Sports
Above the bumper, the rear of the BMW X5 is divided by parallel
horizontal lines. The result is an accentuation of the width,
highlighting the vehicle’s muscular features. The L-shaped,
redesigned taillights, each with two homogeneously illuminated LED
light banks, reflect the brand-typical night-time design of the rear
end. Additionally, the vehicle width is emphasised by the narrowly
designed white light-bands of the reversing lights.
A new choice of body colours provides further visual enhancements.
The metallic colours Deep Sea Blue, Platinum Grey and Sparkling
Bronze are now available for the BMW X5.
Interior: Luxurious ambience, high
new generation of iDrive control system as standard.
The interior of the BMW
X5 is characterised by a generous amount of space and a modern,
sophisticated design. Thanks to exceptional variability in a
luxurious ambience, the highest demands with regard to functionality
are fulfilled in a particularly exclusive fashion. The horizontal
structure of the dashboard and a harmonious match with the door trim
underline the generous amount of passenger compartment space.
Comfortable seats, high-grade materials and carefully matched colour
combinations accentuate the premium character of this modern Sports
Activity Vehicle. The optional leather trim Nevada is now also
available in the colours Cinnamon Brown and Oyster. The choice of
interior options has been complemented by a matt Satin Silver trim
Moreover, the high seating position in conjunction with the centre
console, which is inclined towards the driver, contributes towards
the characteristic driving experience and permits an optimum view of
each traffic situation, thereby conveying the impression of absolute
control over the vehicle. Ergonomically ideally positioned control
elements and spacious storage compartments additionally enhance the
state-of-the-art functionality of the BMW X5.
The new BMW X5 is equipped as standard with the latest generation of
the iDrive control system, whose 6.5-inch control display (or
8.8-inch display when ordered in conjunction with the navigation
system Professional) is harmoniously integrated into the dashboard
and ideally positioned for the driver. The onboard computer and the
audio system as well as the navigation and communication functions
are activated by tilting, turning and pressing the controller, which
is located in the middle of the centre console. Direct selection
buttons on the controller enable fast changing between CD, radio,
telephone and navigation functions. The choice of direct selection
buttons is supplemented by the three command buttons “MENU”, “BACK”
and “OPTION”. In addition, the eight “favourite” buttons located on
the centre console can be used to store and select radio stations,
telephone numbers and navigation destinations or other menu items
accessible via iDrive.
Besides a hard disk storage unit for digital maps and the personal
music collection, the navigation system Professional also comprises
multi-mode control of functions by voice entry and by the
controller. The driver can choose between both forms of entry even
while handling a specific task or operation, with voice entry as
well as the controller remaining active at the same time for
simultaneous use. Voice entry also facilitates direct access to
stored music and the verbal entry of entire addresses.
High degree of variability in the
interior, optional third-row seats.
The BMW X5 offers
driving pleasure on the most diverse terrain. The manifold
possibilities of use also include a high degree of variability in
the interior. The three seats in the back offer a generous amount of
legroom and headway and guarantee an outstanding level of comfort
even during long journeys. The luggage compartment offers a storage
capacity of 620 litres. If more space is needed, the 40:60 split
rear seats can be either partially or completely folded down. This
function provides a totally flat loading area and a maximum storage
capacity of 1,750 litres. The wide, horizontally split tailgate, the
elements of which open in opposite directions, facilitates
convenient loading. The lower section can be used as a platform and
carries a load of 250 kilograms.
Third-row seats are optionally available for the BMW X5. These two
seats are provided with headrests and three-point automatic seat
belts. The seats can be individually stowed into the vehicle floor.
Even when seven seats are in use, the new BMW X5 still has a luggage
compartment volume of 200 litres.
New range of engines: All petrol
and diesel versions with turbocharger and direct injection.
A completely revised
engine range ensures that the BMW X5 will continue to strengthen its
leading role as the most dynamic vehicle in its segment. The choice
of petrol engines now comprises a V8 and a straight six-cylinder
power unit, both of which feature BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and
direct fuel injection. In addition, two variants of the new
generation of the BMW straight six-cylinder diesel engine are
available. Both all-aluminium power units are turbocharged and
utilise the latest Common Rail direct injection technology.
All power units available for the BMW X5 set the benchmark in
sporting power development and efficiency in their respective engine
class. They comply with the EU5 emission standard in Europe and with
ULEV II in the USA respectively. Drive power of each engine is
transferred via the standard eight-speed automatic transmission,
whose outstanding efficiency also contributes towards a reduction of
fuel consumption and emission levels.
All this is supplemented by BMW EfficientDynamics measures, the
combination of which is adapted to suit each model. This technology,
which also comes as standard, includes brake energy regeneration and
demand-controlled ancillary components including the electric
coolant pump, the electric power-steering pump, the map-controlled
oil pump and the disengageable air conditioning compressor.
Furthermore, the measures comprise intelligent lightweight
construction, low-rolling resistance tyres and optimised
aerodynamics including active air vent control. As a result of the
comprehensive drive technology innovations and the consistent
implementation of BMW EfficientDynamics, all versions of the new BMW
X5 offer a ratio between vehicle performance and fuel consumption
that is unrivalled in their respective competitive segments.
Petrol engines: Significantly
increased output thanks to BMW TwinPower Turbo.
Due to its V8 engine
featuring BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and High Precision
Injection, output of the new BMW X5 xDrive50i has increased by 39 kW
compared with the predecessor model. The unique 4.4 litre engine,
the turbochargers of which are located inside the V-section between
the cylinder banks, develops an output of 300 kW/407 bhp within an
engine speed range of 5,500 to 6,400 rpm. Maximum torque is at 600
Nm between 1,750 and 4,500 rpm. The extremely spontaneous and
fascinatingly high-revving V8 engine offers outstanding sporting
performance and is at the same time the most efficient engine of its
kind worldwide. The BMW X5 xDrive50i accelerates from a standstill
to 100 km/h in 5.5 seconds, reaching its top speed at 250 km/h.
Average fuel consumption according to the EU test cycle is 12.5
litres/100 km. The CO2 emission level is 292 grams/km.
Likewise, the second petrol engine variant of the new BMW X5 is
characterised by significantly improved performance and impressive
efficiency. The BMW X5 xDrive35i features the first straight
six-cylinder to combine BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, direct
petrol injection (High Precision Injection) and VALVETRONIC variable
Its supercharging system
where – adhering to the Twinscroll principle – the ducts of three
cylinders at a time are separated from one another both in the
exhaust manifold and the turbocharger, and the further developed
VALVETRONIC system lend the 3-litre power unit its fascinatingly
spontaneous response behaviour. With 225 kW/306 bhp at 5,800 rpm the
engine surpasses its predecessor’s maximum output by 25 kW. Maximum
torque of 400 Nm is available between 1,200 und 5,000 rpm. The new
BMW X5 xDrive35i sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.8 seconds, top
speed being 235 km/h. The significantly increased output is combined
with an average fuel consumption reduced to 10.1 litres/100 km in
the EU test cycle and a CO2 emission level of 236 grams/km.
New generation of diesel engines
in two output categories.
The diesel engines
available for the new BMW X5 also originate from a new generation of
power units. An all-aluminium construction, the latest Common Rail
direct injection technology with piezo injectors and a turbocharger
provide both 3-litre straight six-cylinder engines with impressive
power, awesome running refinement and unparalleled efficiency. A
further reduction in weight compared to each of their predecessors
additionally enhances the agility of the diesel engine variants that
are on offer for the BMW X5.
Above all, the new BMW X5 xDrive40d is characterised by
exceptionally high performance qualities. Thanks to BMW TwinPower
Turbo technology and Common Rail direct injection, its power unit,
which was first presented in the BMW 740d luxury saloon, delivers a
maximum output of 225 kW/306 bhp at 4,400 rpm and a maximum torque
of 600 Nm available between 1,500 and 2,500 rpm. Torque of 450 Nm is
already achieved at an engine speed of 1,000 rpm. More than 90
percent of maximum output is available within a range of 3,500 to
5,000 rpm. The new diesel has a maximum engine speed of 5,600 rpm.
The supercharging technology featured by the new high-performance
diesel engine adheres to the Variable Twin Turbo principle. This
means that initially, just above idling speed, a small charger is
activated, with an additional larger charger being activated when
higher torque is required. Spontaneous and consistent accelerating
power allows the BMW X5 xDrive40d to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in
6.6 seconds. Top speed is 236 km/h. Exceptionally sporty development
of power is coupled with impressive efficiency. This is mainly due
to the Common Rail technology, operating at a maximum pressure of
2,000 bar and guaranteeing an extremely accurately regulated fuel
supply. The BMW X5 xDrive40d has an average fuel consumption of 7.5
litres/100 km in the EU test cycle and a CO2 emission level of 198
The second diesel variant in the model range is the new BMW X5
xDrive30d. Its straight six-cylinder engine is supercharged and has
a variable turbine geometry and Common Rail direct injection
operating at a maximum pressure of 1,800 bar. The engine generates
its maximum output of 180 kW/245 bhp at 4,000 rpm, producing its
maximum torque of 540 Nm between 1,750 and 3,000 rpm. The new BMW X5
xDrive30d accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.6 seconds and reaches
a top speed of 222 km/h. In spite of having a 7 kW higher output
than its predecessor, the vehicle’s average fuel consumption in the
EU test cycle is now 7.4 litres/100 km, a reduction of 10%. The new
BMW X5 xDrive30d achieves a CO2 emission level of 195 grams/km.
Standard feature: Eight-speed
with optimised shifting dynamics and unmatched efficiency.
All new BMW X5 model
variants are equipped as standard with an eight-speed automatic
transmission. The new transmission combines shifting comfort,
sporting characteristics and efficiency at an unprecedented level.
It contributes even more significantly towards a reduction in fuel
consumption and emissions than the six-speed automatic transmission
featured in previous BMW X5 vehicles. The new eight-speed automatic
transmission is characterised by minimum converter slip and an
innovative gear set configuration that permits additional drive
positions and a greater transmission ratio spread without having
negative effects on size, weight and the system’s intrinsic
Intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel
drive technology: Fast response and precision
for enhanced driving dynamics and optimised traction.
drive with electronically-controlled variable torque distribution
between front and rear axles not only gives the new BMW X5 supreme
traction on off-road terrain, but also superior driving dynamics on
BMW xDrive technology was initially featured in the first-generation
BMW X5 and has since then been constantly refined. It is an
intelligent four-wheel drive system that uses a transfer box with an
electronically controlled multi-disc clutch to constantly feed power
as required to the axle that has the best contact with the road
surface. As a result, xDrive also enhances driving stability when
taking bends at higher speeds as it anticipates any tendency to
oversteer or understeer and counteracts these forces effectively.
In normal driving situations, BMW xDrive distributes drive forces to
the front and rear axles in a 40:60 split. Sensors constantly
measure slip on all wheels. Within a fraction of a second, the
system is able to vary the power distribution ratio. As opposed to
previous four-wheel drive systems, BMW xDrive also reacts
anticipatorily and does not wait until a wheel begins to spin.
Therefore, the vehicle is stabilised before the driver even notices
the need to take action. Thanks to a new, more neutrally interpreted
basic configuration, BMW xDrive featured in the new BMW X5
contributes even more significantly towards an increase in driving
dynamics. Even during stable cornering, drive power is shifted to
the rear axle, transferring up to 80 percent of power to the rear
wheels. After cornering, the system returns to the normal setting to
ensure optimum traction.
Precisely controlled coordination
of xDrive and DSC.
Fast and precise
adjustment of drive power distribution is guaranteed by the combined
efforts of xDrive and DSC (Dynamic Stability Control) within the
Integrated Chassis Management (ICM). This combination is also
complemented by the optionally available, revised Active Steering
The stabilising effect of the variable distribution of power reduces
the necessity for the DSC system to intervene. The selective braking
of individual wheels and a reduction in engine output are not
required until the threshold is reached. Additional DSC functions
include the ABS antilock braking system, Automatic Stability Control
(ASC), a trailer stability control system, Hill Descent Control (HDC),
Automatic Differential Brake (ADB), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and
Cornering Brake Control (CBC). Moreover, the system comprises brake
drying in wet conditions, the hill-start assistant, fading
compensation as well as the standard cruise control system with
braking function featured. The special mode Dynamic Traction Control
(DTC) raises the tolerance of DSC, thereby facilitating an
exceptionally sporting and active style of driving as well as the
setting off in deep snow or loose sand with controlled drive wheel
The BMW X5 is also equipped with a parking brake that uses both an
electro-mechanical and a hydraulic function activated or released at
the push of a button. The parking brake features an Auto Hold
function that enhances comfort above all in stop-and-go traffic
technology and steering with
standard Servotronic function. Optional Active Steering.
technology used on the new BMW X5 is the ideal prerequisite for
supreme driving dynamics on tarmac. The suspension of the Sports
Activity Vehicle features a double-wishbone front axle and a
lightweight integral rear axle. The additionally available rear-axle
air suspension, including automatic self-levelling, ensures a
consistent ride height and unaltered driving characteristics at all
times, regardless of load conditions.
The new BMW X5’s rack-and-pinion steering comes as standard with the
Servotronic function for speed-dependent power steering.
Furthermore, an active steering function is available which
additionally varies steering transmission according to speed.
Therefore, less steering wheel movement and effort are required when
parking, whilst at high speeds a more indirect behaviour is achieved
and the effect of power steering reduced in order to enhance
directional stability and ride comfort.
Optimum supremacy with Adaptive
A combination of active
body-roll stabilisation and variable damping control incorporated
into the Adaptive Drive system is the guarantee of unparalleled
supremacy within the BMW X5 competitive environment. With the aid of
sensors, Adaptive Drive permanently monitors and calculates data on
the road speed, steering angle, lateral and longitudinal
acceleration, body and wheel velocity as well as height levels. This
information is used to control the swivel motors on the anti-roll
bars and the electro-magnetic shock-absorber valves. In this way
body roll is reduced and damping is constantly regulated according
to the current driving situation. The FlexRay high-speed data
transmission system is used for fast and reliable coordination.
High-performance brake system and
tyres with emergency running properties.
The BMW X5’s high
performance brake system guarantees outstanding stopping power.
Newly conceived lightweight brakes with 385 mm discs at the front
and an aluminium floating caliper construction on the front and rear
axles of the top-of-the-range BMW X5 xDrive50i ensure extreme
stability and maximum braking comfort.
Standard features on the new BMW X5 also include 19-inch light-alloy
wheels on the BMW X5 xDrive50i and 18-inch light alloys on all other
variants respectively. The range of optionally available
light-alloys for the new BMW X5 is complemented by three variants
with a Y-spoke design and wheels in the sizes 19 and 20 inch
respectively. Runflat safety tyres, also supplied as standard, allow
the driver to continue his or her journey and reach a garage even in
the event of a total loss of tyre pressure. Depending on the load
condition, it is possible to continue driving for a distance of
between 50 and 250 kilometres. Furthermore, the tyre defect
indicator permanently monitors the tyre pressure.
Highly rigid body structure,
comprehensive occupant protection.
Like all BMW X models,
the new BMW X5 has an extremely rigid body that – despite of its
high degree of torsional stiffness – has an optimum weight thanks to
intelligent lightweight construction. For the benefit of passive
safety, the forces acting on the vehicle during an accident are
passed on via the engine supports and chassis along various load
paths, keeping them away from the stable passenger cell.
In addition to front and hip/thorax airbags, the interior of the new
BMW X5 comes as standard with side curtain head airbags. It also
features three-point automatic seat belts for all seats, belt force
limiters, belt tensioners and crash-active headrests at the front as
well as the ISOFIX child seat system for the second-row seats. All
occupant restraint systems are centrally and electronically
controlled. In the event of an imminent roll-over, roll-over sensors
ensure that the curtain airbags and the belt tensioners are
Unique in the competitive
New BMW ConnectedDrive driver assistance systems.
As part of BMW
ConnectedDrive, the new BMW X5 offers a multitude of unique driver
assistance systems and services for optimising comfort and safety as
well as for the use of infotainment functions. Active Cruise Control
with Stop & Go function is available as an alternative to the
standard cruise control system with braking function. It
additionally comprises Automatic Distance Control which allows for
relaxed cruising in motorway or overland traffic, also ensuring that
the selected distance from the vehicle ahead is maintained in
low-speed stop-and-go traffic. If the selected distance from the
vehicle ahead is insufficiently maintained, the system automatically
makes the necessary adjustments by intervening into the car control
system and by building up brake pressure. If required, the vehicle
can be brought safely to a complete standstill. After a short stop,
the system automatically sets the car in motion again. If the
vehicle stops longer than desired, the driver can restart the car by
pressing either a button or by actuating the accelerator pedal.
The Lane Departure Warning feature also available for the BMW X5 is
able to identify unintentional drifting from the lane at a speed of
at least 70 km/h. The system consists of a camera, which is
installed on the windscreen in the vicinity of the rear-view mirror,
a control unit for data synchronisation and a pulse emitter that
activates a gentle but unmistakeable vibration on the steering
wheel. The camera detects the markings on at least one lane. A
control unit calculates the position of the vehicle in relation to
these markings. The system also works in bends, on narrow lanes and
in the dark as soon as the headlights are switched on.
Furthermore, the Speed Limit Info function can also be used in
conjunction with the Lane Departure Warning and the navigation
system Professional. This function offers the driver the possibility
to obtain information regarding the route he is currently on. The
camera used for the Lane Departure Warning permanently monitors road
signs as well as variable overhead gantry signs on motorways.
A further technical innovation within the BMW ConnectedDrive range
is the Side View system. It comprises two cameras that are
integrated into the front wings, permitting observation of cross
traffic. The images are transferred to the control display, making
it possible at an early stage to identify traffic coming from the
left or right, particularly when driving through a narrow gate or
leaving a multi-storey car park.
Also available for the BMW X5 are the Head-Up Display, with which
driver-relevant information is projected onto the windscreen within
the driver’s field of vision, the High-Beam Assistant and Adaptive
Headlights, including cornering lights, variable light distribution
and adaptive auto-levelling. Further equipment options are Park
Distance Control and a reversing camera, including the Surround View
system. In addition, with BMW Assist, BMW Online, BMW TeleServices
and innovative remote functions, BMW ConnectedDrive also offers the
world’s most unique choice of mobility services relating to traffic
information, emergency calls, vehicle, information and office
services, travel and leisure time planning as well as the Internet.
Optimised utilisation of telecommunication and entertainment systems
is guaranteed, inter alia, by the full integration of external cell
phones and music players.
Premium standard equipment,
With its comprehensive
range of standard equipment, which includes, among other features,
automatic climate control, an audio system with CD drive and AUX In
connection, a multifunction steering wheel, electrically operated

The new BMW X5 embodies the consistent continuation of a successful
vehicle concept with which BMW established the entirely new Sports
Activity Vehicle segment in the year 1999. The BMW X5 continues to
set the benchmark in driving dynamics in its competitive
environment, combining more than ever before the fascinating driving
experience offered by a BMW X model with outstanding efficiency.
With new petrol and diesel engines, an eight-speed automatic
transmission as standard and the xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive
technology, it underlines the typical sporting character of BMW X
models even more impressively. Thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics, it
also achieves optimum results in terms of fuel consumption and
emission levels, as clearly demonstrated by the BMW X5 xDrive30d’s
extremely low fuel consumption of just 7.4 litres/100 km. This
combination, its expressive design, innovative features and its
premium character render the new BMW X5 the most supreme ambassador
of its segment in every sense of the word.
