All-new 2019 BMW X5 is sharper looking and loaded with new technology
BMW X5 is one of the bestselling models from the German luxury car brand in India. Now, the brand is ready to bring the latest iteration of the luxury SUV here, the 2019 BMW X5. Scheduled to launch here on May 16, 2019. The 2019 BMW X5 is based on a new CLAR architecture that is shared with BMW 5-Series and 7-Series as well. Also, it looks sharper compared to the outgoing model and comes loaded with new hi-tech technology. The SUV comes after the brand rolled out the new BMW Z4 here early this month.
It will come in two different variants, including the performance-focused M-Sport. The other variant will be Luxury Line. The Bavarian auto giant has used an extensive amount of aluminium to make this SUV compared to the predecessor. This way, the new 2019 BMW X5 is more lightweight but rigid at the same time.
The fourth generation BMW X5 is significantly longer and wider compared to the third-gen model. Also, it gets a larger wheelbase as well. However, the height of the car has been reduced a bit. Thanks to these dimensional changes, the 2019 BMW X5 comes offering more space and comfort to the occupants compared to its predecessor. The corona ring Matrix LED headlamps, sleek LED fog lamps, LED taillights, muscular flared side profile, black cladding, dual exhausts, stylish wheels everything helps the car to become more appealing at exterior.
Inside the cabin, the 2019 BMW X5 gets a new dashboard with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and infotainment system. With a connected appearance, this large screen enhances the visual appeal. Seats and upholstery materials too don a new look. BMW offers a host of customization option to the buyers. It also houses a wide range of radar-based safety features.
This Mercedes GLE rivalling luxury SUV is likely to come with the same 3.0-litre diesel engine as the current model. However, it will comply with upcoming BS6 emission norms. Power and torque output are expected to be increased in the India-spec model. This SUV will also challenge the rivals like Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90.
