BMW X5 sets standard for the sports activity vehicle

BMW X5 sets standard for the sports activity vehicle

The new BMW X5 is on sale in Ireland with prices starting from €94,325.

BMW is once again setting the standard for the Sports Activity Vehicle with the new fourth-generation X5.

Combining an elegant and strong design with supreme on- and off-road ability, the new X5 has an even greater blend of premium luxury performance and comfort.

It’s a winning formula with previous generations selling in excess of 2.2 million examples since the first X5 launched in 1999.

Available to order now in Ireland, the all-new X5 demonstrates the latest BMW advances in technology, design and safety, with the highest level of autonomous capability yet seen on a BMW X model.

A choice of TwinPower and M Performance petrol and diesel engines are matched to a new eight-speed Steptronic gearbox and the latest version of xDrive for maximum comfort, capability and performance.

The latest X5 retains the hallmark proportions of an SAV, but the pared-back design language – clean surfacing and precise lines providing elegant poise and muscular authority – is new.

With a wheelbase 42mm longer than its predecessor, an increase in vehicle length of 36mm, an extra 66mm of width and a 19mm increase in height, the new BMW X5 has both an imposing appearance and generous levels of space for passengers and their luggage.
