70 - 90 Lakhs Expected Price

The fourth-gen BMW X5 was revealed in June of 2018. The new-gen X5 is bigger, feature laden, and more stylish than the outgoing model. It will hit the international market in November 2018. BMW is expected to bring the new X5 in India probably by the middle of 2019. It will continue to rival the likes of Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q7, Volvo XC90 besides Range Rover Velar and Porsche Cayenne.

BMW’s iconic Kidney grille is now larger than before lending an imposing character to the SUV. The LED headlamps are newly designed and have the BMW Laser light with adaptive LED signature in the blue X-motif. The front bumper gets large air vents surrounded by black inserts. The taillights are sleek and have a 3D lighting signature. The silhouette is instantly recognisable while the X5 sits on massive 21-inch wheels for the first time. The rear diffuser with integrated exhaust tips lends a sporty appeal to the SUV. Based on the new CLAR platform as the new 5 Series, the X5 has also grown in dimensions. Its length has increased by 36mm to 4,922mm, width by 66mm to 2,004 mm and height by 19mm to 1,745mm. The wheelbase is extended by 42mm to 2,975mm.

On the inside, the cabin is typical BMW with floating infotainment screen, horizontal centre console and now a fully-digital instrument cluster. Called the BMW Live Cockpit Professional display, the digital cluster makes its debut in the X5 and it comes as standard fitment. The iDrive is also updated and now supports a customisable display, touchscreen panel and gesture/voice commands. The three-row X5 also debuts with electrically forward-tilting second-row seats. The boot capacity of 645litres can be increased to 1,860litres. The cabin comes with standard leather upholstery, multifunction seats, four-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, dynamic ambient lighting, passenger screens and wireless charging. The X5 also debuts the newly designed gear-selector lever.

Engine wise, the new-gen X5 will have four powertrain options. The top-spec xDrive50i will be powered by a newly-developed V8 producing 460bhp. A 340bhp 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine will be powering the xDrive40i. There are two diesel engines - 400bhp in the M50d and a 265bhp unit in xDrive30d. The eight-speed Steptronic transmission is fitted as standard. The new X5 comes with an optional Off-Road package. It gets two-axle air suspension, a body under guard, four driving modes, adjustable ride height (up to 80mm) and electric damper control.
