We are at the launch of the new BMW X5 in Pune. BMW will launch the new X5 SUV only with a diesel engine and this is an important launch as the luxury SUV segment is one of the hottest in the overall luxury market. The new X5 has a 258 bhp 3.0 litre diesel engine plus has the brilliant 8-speed automatic gearbox. This engine also powers some others BMWs in its India range.
Despite being bigger the new X5 is lighter and more efficient but what its owners will appreciate more is the fact that the new X5 is available in 5 seater or 7 seater versions thus increasing its practicality. Inside its typical BMW but now its more luxurious than the previous version and obviously is fully loaded with all sorts of features. Bookings for this luxury SUV had started some time back and if you book one, you will get delivery by June.
