BMW X5 xDrive30d M Sport launched at INR 75.9 lakhs- Auto Expo 2016
It goes without saying that I’m a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Assembled in India at the Chennai plant.
BMW India showcased the next product to receive an M Sport variant at the Auto Expo 2016 – the BMW X5. Priced from INR 75,90,000 (ex-showroom), the BMW X5 xDrive30d M Sport bridges the gap between the regular X5 and the more-powerful BMW X5 M, with respect to exterior and interior styling.
The exterior is fitted with the M Aerodynamic Package, and is available in a choice of three exclusive exterior colours. Other salient features include M light alloy wheels, BMW Individual High-Gloss Shadow Line, M-specific vehicle key and Tailpipe cover with high gloss chrome covering.
Inside, it replaces the regular 3-spoke steering wheel for an M leather unit, and features an Head-up Display, comfort seats for driver and BMW Individual roofliner anthracite. It carries over equipment from the regular X5, such as BMW iDrive with touch controller, BMW Navigation Professional with a 10.2 inch colour display, and a 16 speaker 600 Watts Harman Kardon system.
Under the hood is a 3.0-liter TwinPower six-cylinder diesel engine delivering 258 hp and 560 Nm of torque. It is paired to an 8-speed ZF automatic gearbox with steering mounted paddles, and comes standard with BMW’s xDrive AWD system. The X5 xDrive30d M Sport is capable of sprinting from 0 to 100 km/hr in 6.9 seconds, before reaching a limited top-speed of 230 km/hr.
