The Republic of Ireland is getting the new BMW X5 in an updated look both concerning the design package and the performance one (and might we add, lower emissions). BMW fans from the country couldn’t be happier and are sure to welcome the new changes with open hands and a smile on their faces.
Regarding the changes made to the car’s exterior, these are designed to show a more athletic look, with new front bumpers featuring bigger vents so that both the engine and brakes will get more air. Other features include new vent fins and lower scuff plates, new xenons and fog lights, bigger tail pipes and a new rear bumper coupled with horizontal LED lights.
Regarding performance, the BMW X5 features three engines, the xDrive30d (245 hp, taking the car from 0 to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds and has a 7.4 litre/100km consumption), xDrive40d and the xDrive50i. All three engines are EU 5 compliant. A standard eight-speed auto transmission will be supplied. New entries are also available on the standard equipment list such as the leather interior, Servotronic steering.
The new BMW X5 has a 76,580 euro price tag.
