BMW India has launched the new X5 starting at INR 93.90 lakh, ex-showroom, India, for the xDrive40i xLine trim level, while the diesel range starts at INR 95.90 lakh for the xDrive30d xLine trim level. The SUV will be locally manufactured at the company’s Chennai plant.

In its refreshed avatar, the SUV gets a redesigned bumper and slimmer set of LED headlights, while the rear gets new detailing for the LED tail lamps.

The X5 xDrive 40i has a 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine with 381hp and 520Nm of torque, while the xDrive 30d has a 3.0-litre straight-six diesel engine with 286hp and 650Nm of torque. Both engines incorporate an electric motor with 12hp and 200Nm of torque and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

On the inside, the X5 gets the new twin-screen panel with the 14.9-inch infotainment screen running BMW’s iDrive 8 operating system, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and a Harmon Kardon music system. Other cabin features include ambient lighting, sports seats with a heating function in the xLine trims, and a comfort seat with ventilation for the M Sport trims. The M Sport trims get a head-up display as well.

Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India, noted that the new X5 has all the ingredients required to strengthen its position as the global market leader in its segment.

The launch of the X5 marks the sixth new model for the country from the German carmaker, including the 7-series along with the i7, X3, X7 and Z4.

In 2022 the group in India achieved its highest-ever annual sales of 19,263 units across its portfolio. On a YoY basis, the company achieved 37% growth, while the MINI and the Motorrad brand grew by 11% and 40%, respectively.

Reflecting on these figures, the company President had earlier noted that the brand is the leader in the electro-mobility space in India, both in terms of offerings and the luxury car segment. Meanwhile, with its growth figure, BMW Motorrad India found its place in the top ten countries globally. “Our next goal is to meet the high customer demand,” Pawah added.
