The New BMW X5.
It’s hard to argue with the new BMW X5 – it’s imposing to look at, amazing to drive and now has a seven-seat option. SUVs don’t come much better. You can now experience this for yourself at Peter Vardy Edinburgh.
Created with functional elegance in mind, the precise structuring of the cockpit supports the BMW X5's superior driving experience. The instrument panel, designed for intuitive use, is inclined slightly towards the front seat, perfectly positioned in the driver's optimum field of vision. The beautifully assembled quality materials used gives the X5 an air of limousine class.
Beyond the larger headlamps and sculpted bonnet, the biggest change is the X5’s growth spurt, overall length increasing by 187mm, wheelbase by 113mm and width by 17mm. Yet despite the larger footprint and a 15 per cent increase in torsional stiffness, the new X5 weighs just 15kg more than the previous model.
Its intelligent combination of safety elements makes the BMW X5 one of the safest vehicles on the road. A precisely designed network of suspension, engine management, brakes and tyres, plus an array of electronic sensors, work in unison to keep the BMW X5 safely on track, even in the most demanding situations. The standard airbag package and the restraint system, featuring seatbelt tensioners and force limiters, deliver split-second protection for the occupants should a collision be unavoidable. And the sturdy bodyshell complies with all relevant crash safety standards worldwide, including with regard to the optional third-row seats.
Excellent performance combines with equally excellent fuel consumption values to produce smooth responsiveness and muscular power. The straight six-cylinder engine in the BMW X5 xDrive30d with common rail direct fuel injection, four-valve technology and turbocharger produces an impressive 173 kW (235 hp) and a top torque of no less than 520 Nm. Elastic acceleration is another speciality - from 0 to 100 km/h in just 8.1 seconds. The BMW X5 xDrive35d needs just 7.0 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h with a top speed of 235 km/h and 286 hp.
Thanks to xDrive, the BMW X5 maintains perfect traction even on difficult road conditions. This intelligent system uses its Dynamic Stability Control sensors to detect the early signs of instability and reacts instantly as needed. It distributes engine power flexibly and variably to each axle: the axle with the greatest traction receives the most power, delivering optimum road-holding, perfect performance on bends and excellent forward thrust.
