BMW X5 M Exterior
The design of the BMW X5 M unites power and exclusivity. From the generously proportioned kidney grill with large air intakes to the characteristic M gills and its impressive silhouette, every inch of this vehicle has been designed with sports performance in mind. A precise V-shape extends from the bonnet via the front apron to the road, lowering the visual centre of gravity and thus creating a characterful expression of the vehicle's dynamic on-road attributes. Powerful struts are braced against the arrow-shaped bonnet and draw attention to the wheels to create a lasting impression of high performance and exclusivity.
BMW X5 M Interior
The high-class ambience of the interior exudes sports performance from the moment you shut the door behind you. The Merino leather M seats fit the contours of your body like a perfectly tailored suit to provide made-to-measure driving comfort and exceptional body support. As you take control of the ergonomically designed M steering wheel you realize that the BMW X5 M offers the perfect combination of dynamics and exclusivity. From your advantageous elevated seating position one thing is immediately clear: in the cockpit of the BMW X5 M you have total control in every driving situation.
BMW X5 M Engine
World premiere: as soon as you start the highly efficient EU5 engine, it becomes unmistakably clear that the first M TwinPower Turbo with 408 kW (555 hp) is not just impressive on paper. Its more than 126 hp per litre output sets standards while the patented cross-bank exhaust manifold and two Twin Scroll turbochargers guarantee maximum power flow and optimum transfer of exhaust gas energy to the turbocharger rotors. As a result, the M TwinPower Turbo unit boasts faster turbocharger response than any other Turbo engine in the world. With high torque of 680 Nm that remains constant over an extremely wide rev range, from 1,500 to 5,650 rpm, this is an astonishingly potent machine.
By merging the precision of a sports car with the generous spaciousness of a Sports Activity Vehicle, the BMW X5 M brings together two worlds so effortlessly it's as though they've always been united. As a result passengers are free to enjoy the unique feeling of dynamics sports performance without compromising on luxurious head and legroom. And there's plenty of room for luggage, too, with storage capacity extending to an impressive maximum of 1,750 litres.
The M Dynamic Mode in Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) allows the BMW X5 M to achieve unsurpassed cornering speeds and controlled drifting. In this mode the point at which DSC intervenes to stabilize the vehicle is significantly delayed which increases drive slip for both longitudinal and transverse dynamics at all speed levels. This does not impact on safety, however: it is just a means to increase driving pleasure.
