Abu Dhabi, UAE: From 29 October, Abu Dhabi Motors, the premium BMW Group importer in the Middle East, welcomes customers to experience the all-new X5.
Embodying the origins of the BMW X family, the fourth generation of the ever-popular X5 combines the ability to venture off-road with a talent for dynamic driving pleasure. Significantly larger than its predecessor – 36mm longer overall, with a 42mm increase in wheelbase length, 66mm wider and 19 mm taller – the overall sense of spaciousness, meticulously selected premium materials and excellent craftsmanship of the new X5 is unrivalled.
Abu Dhabi Motors will proudly offer two variants of the innovative new model – the BMW X5 xDrive40i with it six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and eight-speed Steptronic transmission; and the eight-cylinder BMW X5 xDrive50i, which serves up an intoxicating blend of prodigious power delivery and signature V8 soundtrack.
With more than 2.2 million examples of its previous three generations sold to date, the X5 has maintained its leading position in the premium all-wheel drive segment since founding the category almost 20 years ago.
The car’s eye-catching design makes a powerful statement. Its front end features a striking, enlarged, hexagonal kidney-grille paired against a sculptured bonnet, giving the iconic front a new lease of life, while other standout features include the short overhang, a compact wheelbase, and a noticeably more upright, sporty appearance.
The modern, clearly structured and elegant surfaces radiate a generous feeling of space inside the new BMW X5. In fact, the luxurious seating will allow all passengers to enjoy that front-row feeling, no matter where they sit, while the interior exudes a classy and modern aura thanks to sophisticated materials, harmonious design and an innovative control concept.
The all-new X5 is also more intuitive than ever before, boasting a BMW Operating System 7.0, designed to intelligently integrate vehicle functions through gestures, speech, a new larger touch screen and iDrive controls. There’s a new, fully-digital instrument cluster with a more contemporary look, while the Harmon Kardon Surround Sound System comes as standard, taking audio perfection to a whole new level. What’s more, the new BMW X5 boasts a full sensory experience with an Ambient Air Package and enhanced interior mood lighting, which not only elevates the driving experience but also responds to incoming alerts, such as phone calls.
Other new features designed to maximise the feel-good factor and luxurious ambience onboard the BMW X5 include the four-zone air conditioning system and panoramic glass roof, whose clear surface is 30 per cent larger than on the outgoing car. Meanwhile, the Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge generates a very special and exclusive aura when darkness falls, with LED light spreading evenly across the glass surface to illuminate more than 15,000 graphic patterns and generate a display reminiscent of a starlit sky.
Arno Husselmann, General Manager of Abu Dhabi Motors, said: “Forget what you know about sports activity vehicles; this new BMW X5 has been redesigned and rebuilt from the wheels up. We know drivers are expecting more from the X5 and I can assure them they won’t be disappointed with its new levels of luxury, connectivity and performance.”
With the most comprehensive manufacturer packages available on the market, Abu Dhabi Motors offers an 8 years / 160,000kms BMW Service Inclusive Plan and 5 years / 200,000kms BMW Repairs Inclusive Plan, alongside an ability to deliver technically superior service standards, helping to ensure the lowest cost of ownership and highest resale value of vehicles for sheer ownership pleasure.
The all-new BMW X5 is now available to test drive at Abu Dhabi Motors.
