BMW X5 (Model 2019)
We only need three words to define the new BMW X5; robust, clear, and precise. Robust with its new sporty and imposing increased proportions; the wheelbase is 42mm longer, the length of the car is 36mm longer, 66mm wider and 19mm higher.
Clear and precise with its clean exterior and interior design lines emphasising, even more, the robust feel of the car.
The new vehicle comes with two petrol and two diesel engines and can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.7 seconds.
The new car comes also with different model variants; the xLine and M Sport models offered as options.
The xLine model offers key external features including an underguard, roof rails, side window surrounds in Aluminium satinated and 19-inch light-alloy wheels.
The BMW X5 M Sport will offer a large range of options to distinguish the car from the default model; the wheel arch trim, bumper trim, rear underguard and side skirts will be painted in body colour. It will also come with a 20-inch light allow-wheel to complete the sporty look of the car.
Customers looking for extra exclusivity for the exterior design of the car will be able to choose from the extended individual high-gloss shadow line, tinted headlight and rear lights, painted BMW Individual brake callipers and 21-inch BMW Individual light-alloy wheels.
The interior of the new BMW X5 is an example of space, comfort, and exclusive ambience. The dashboard is designed with clean horizontal lines emphasizing the width of the interior of the car and highlighting the space available. The central console screen is also raised up which contributes to this clean overall impression seen across all design elements of the car.
As most of the new cars, the new BMW X5 comes with extensive driver assistance systems such as the standard Cruise Control but also the Collision Warning and Pedestrian Warning which alerts the driver when cyclists are detected and there is a risk of collision.
The Active Cruise Control (optional) with Stop & Go function will brake the car to a standstill and will start it again automatically for convenience in traffic.
Safety is a key priority for the manufacturer and has improved their safety and comfort package, including now the Steering and Lane Control assistant including Traffic Jam, the Lane Keeping Assistant with active side collision protection.
A new safety system was also introduced; the Emergency Stop Assistant.
If the driver is in the incapacity of driving because of a medical emergency, the car will activate the warning lights and depending on the driving situation and the surroundings, the car will be brought to a standstill on the lane, on the side of the road or on the hard shoulder. It will also automatically call emergency services, so they can be alerted of the incident and arrive on site faster.
The new BMW would not be complete without a fully digital experience.
Newly added is the integration of Microsoft Office 365 turning the car into a mobile office where users can use Skype for business, manage emails, contacts, and appointments without the need to use a mobile phone to access these data while driving.
