The M Sport Package offers the performance-oriented driver a particularly dynamic look and feel for the new BMW X5. Exterior touches include an M-aerodynamic body kit, Shadowline trim, highgloss roof rails and 19-inch M-Double Spoke light alloy wheels. 20-inch M-Double Spoke wheels with mixed-sized performance runflat tires are available as an upgrade. The interior includes an 8-speed sport automatic transmission with shift-paddles, M-sport steering wheel, anthracite headliner, M foot rest and door sills, Aluminum Hexagonal trim and sport seats. Multi-contour seats can be specified as an alternative. An M Adaptive Suspension may also be specified as an upgrade.
The Luxury line for the exterior includes stylistic underbody protection elements and wheel arch surrounds painted in the respective body color, black kidney grille bars with high-gloss chrome fronts, T-shaped bars for the outer air intakes and louvers for the lower aperture, plus a chrome trim strip for the rear apron and Chrome Line Exterior adornments for the side windows. The exterior mirror bases, B-pillars and C-pillars all feature high-gloss black trim. Roof rails are available in a choice of Satin Aluminum or high-gloss finish. Also included are a sport steering wheel and 19-inch V-spoke wheels – 20-inch Y-spoke wheels with mixed-sized performance tires are available as an upgrade.
BMW’s M Performance Automobiles folks had their hand in the new X5 as well. Just like with the previous generation E70, the X5 will be offered in the M50d mode. Under the hood, the X5 M50d features a six-cylinder inline diesel with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology (three turbochargers, high-pressure, with variable turbine geometry), common rail direct injection with piezo injectors, maximum injection pressure 2,200 bar). The 3.0 liter diesel engine produces 381 horsepower at 4,000-4,400 rpm and a max torque of 740 Nm (546 lb-ft) at 2,000 – 3,000 rpm. For a car of this weight, the acceleration from 0 to 62 mph is impressive: 5.3 seconds. The top speed is limited to 155 mph. Average fuel consumption according to EU standard: 6.7 liters/100 kilometers.
