The 2019 BMW X5 which was recently launched is an all-new 4th generation which comes in 2 variants: the X5 xDrive 50i and the X5 xDrive 40i. The BMW X5 which was introduced about 2 decades ago, has had over 2.2 million products being sold worldwide and has exclusively been built in Spartanburg, SC.
The all-new 2019 BMW X5 retains the hallmark proportion of a Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) but now comes with a new pared-back design language, precise lines and clean surfacing which exudes authority, elegance and style.
It has a 19mm height which is higher than its predecessor’s, an extra 66 mm width, a length increase of 36mm, and a 42mm wheelbase increase. These additions give the new BMW X5 more legroom, ample space for luggages and exquisite muscular appearance.
The sporty and rugged features of the car are accentuated in the roofline’s dynamic sweep, a sculpted hood, hexagonal wheel arches and a short front overhang. The origin of the BMW family is boldly embodied in the BMW X5, thereby sending a strong message about how modern and truly present it is.
The most unique and striking feature of the new 2019 BMW X5 is in the front end which has a huge BMW kidney grille with single-piece surrounds. It has Adaptive LED headlights and BMW laser-lights which feature blue x-shaped elements as an alternative.
The elements split up the hexagonal light sources inside the twin headlights, thus making a distinguishing visual statement.
Interior design and control
The interior of the new 2019 BMX X5 betones a mixture of sophistication and elegance. It offers exclusive ambience to both front and rear occupants with the generous accommodation it provides. The instrument panel, which is constructively broken up by sweeping horizontal lines, emphasizes the width of the interior by combining with electroplated trim elements. The overall attractive impression is achieved with the combination of its large trim finisher which is made of electroplated elements and the center console which rises up to the instrument panel.
The driver-focused cockpit, the elevated seating position, the systematic arrangement of the console and the new design give the person on the driver’s seat the best view which will make the task of driving seamless. The transmission selector level is in the center console, the iDrive controller and other controls which are related to driving.
Other materials in the interior include; a standard, adjustable and heated sports seats, a new Vernasca variant leather upholstery, and multifunction seats with massage functions for the pleasure and comfortability of everyone seated in the car.
With its third row seats and two section tailgate, exclusivity and comfort is guaranteed in the all new 2019 BMX X5 as it offers enhanced functionalities. The Comfort Access can be specified and both section can be automatically closed and opened hands-free.
Specifying the optional third row seats will make it possible for occupants to receive rear seats with electric fore and aft adjustments. The cargo area houses a control panel that slides the second row seats backwards and forward. The back rests of the second and third rows can also be folded down.
Performance and power
The 2019 BMX X5 arrives with two new gasoline engines. There is the extensively developed V8 unit xDrive 50i and a 6 cylinder inline engine which can be found beneath the hood of the BMW X5 iDrive 40i. An eight-speed Steptronic transmission channels the power of all engines while BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive is available to make sure that there is translation of power into all secure progress.
The BMW TwinPower Turbo technology in the gasoline engines features Double-VANOS variable camshaft timings, High Precision Injection, VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing and turbochargers.
The new BMW X5 is an impressive embodiment with its ride quality, refinement and masterstroke of future BMWs in the pipeline.
The luxury, yet rugged SUV is both capable along cramped downtown streets and muddy terrains.
The X5 has gradually matured into a road-mannered civilian cruiser that is seldom found in an SUV of its size. In its sweet inline-six and creamy propulsive capabilities lie its real charm.
The 2019 BMW X5 arrived in Canada in November 2018 with an MSRP of $71,500 for the xDrive 40i and $86,000 for the xDrive 50i and with affordable loans in Canada, any member of the middle class can afford to buy this piece of art from a German forge.
