2019 BMW X5 pricing and features

The all-new X5 range lands in November with prices starting at $112,990

The fourth generation BMW X5 SUV will arrive in Aussie showrooms next month with just two initial variants: the X5 xDrive 30d and the range-topping X5 M50d.

Pricing for the new-gen “Sports Activity Vehicle” starts at $112,990 for the X5 xDrive 30d, with the M50d priced at $149,990. More variants are slated to follow in 2019.

Highlights include the introduction of two 12.3-inch touch-displays as part of BMW Live Cockpit Professional – bringing BMW’s infotainment system in-line with the well-advanced offerings by Mercedes-Benz and Audi – a variety of optional air suspension packages and a newly introduced xOffroad Package for those actually interested in taking their X5 cross-country.

Bigger than the F15-generation X5 in almost every respect, the 2019 X5 makes use of its extra space particularly in the back half of the car – with increased legroom for second row occupants and a capacious 645-litre boot which expands to 1860 litres with the seats down. No mention is made of a seven-seat version making its way to Australia yet, as was offered in its predecessor.

The xDrive 30d’s new 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel powertrain produces 195kW and 620Nm of torque sent to all four wheels. It’ll sprint to 100km/h in 6.5 seconds using an eight-speed gearbox.

Its standard features list includes surround-view 3D parking cameras, active cruise control, a configurable ambient lighting package and Apple CarPlay, all presented with up-spec xLine trim as standard.   

The gap between the xDrive30d and an M car can be bridged with the $4000 M Sport Package that incorporates sports trim pieces like 20-inch M alloy wheels with run-flat tyres, M Sport braking package, adaptive M suspension, shadowline black trim pieces around the exterior and an M Sport bodykit around the car.

If you want the real M experience, the X5 M50d’s 3.0-litre six-cylinder quad-turbo diesel engine (an extra turbo than before) pumps out 294kW/760Nm of torque for a monstrous 0-100km/h time of 5.2 seconds.

The M50d includes the M Sport package aspects as standard, and builds upon the xDrive 30d spec with 22-inch M alloy wheels, soft-close doors, four-zone automatic climate control, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound and BMW Laserlight headlights.
