It also increase the efficiency with which it burns fuel, mostly thanks to features like Auto Start Stop function, ECO PRO mode including coasting function and Proactive Driving Assistant.
Something exclusive to the F15 BMW X5 is BMW’s own Active Steering, which brings boons to ride smoothness and handling. And for all the technological advancements, the X5 will also pass the Eu6 rating.
The first F15 BMW X5 unit to roll out the assembly line is a Mineral White M50d with a full Nappa Mocha leather interior.
