The all-new and powerful X5 M Competition has been officially launched by BMW India on Thursday with a starting price of INR 1.94crore. The first premier of the ‘M’ model was held at Los Angeles Auto Show 2019 and finally, this powerful SAV has been brought to India through the complete build-up unit (CBU) route.
Nevertheless, it is still not yet confirmed that the M Competition will be launched in Nepal as well. Let’s hope Laxmi Group – the official dealer of BMW vehicles for Nepal, will soon bring the new M Competition here in Nepal. Check out more information about the feature and details about the car.
The X5 M version is powered by a twin-turbo – a rev-happy unit with a racetrack-proven cooling system, V-8 engine adjusted to make up to 617 horsepower and torque of 750 Nm. With the offering of a top speed of 250 kmph, this M version manages to sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.8 seconds. The powerful engine is paired to a velvety eight-speed M Steptronic auto transmission.
Apart from the dynamic performance of the X5 M, the bold and alluring looks do justice to this SAV. The signature kidney grille, M light-alloy wheels, and Laserlight headlamps package has managed to maintain the boldness and remarkable road presence of this car.
The inside of the X5 M flaunts a 12.3-inch fully digital gauge cluster, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, ambient interior lighting, gesture control, virtual assistance, and BMW individual upholstery. The infotainment system is improvised with countless connectivity features including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a Harman/Kardon audio system. The 12.3-inch touchscreen displays the company’s iDrive software which can be controlled by voice control, hand gestures, and a rotary controller on the center console.
“BMW M is driven by a single-minded passion for creating authentic motorsport functionality with everyday usability. The all-new BMW X5 M Competition inherits this DNA and heralds a new dimension in the Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) segment. The powerful V8 engine and an array of comfort and safety features promise a unique, sporty, and exclusive driving experience. The all-new BMW X5 M Competition fulfills the highest customer expectations, not only for agility, dynamics, and power but also the expression of individuality.” said Vikram Pawah, President, BMW Group India.
