BMW, the automotive giant from the south of Germany, has recently introduced the new X5 in this country. The vehicle was launched in India barely a month ago and it is already clear to see that it has been garnering excellent reception. Such positive signals mean that BMW will soon be launching more SUVs in the near future.
As far as stunning vehicles go, the X6 was always right up there ever since its launch. If looks could kill, this car would have its own padded cell! The new BMW X6 will be powered by either a 3.0 litre, 6 cylinder diesel engine that belts out 258 bhp or a 5.0 litre V8 than produces 450 bhp. The X6 M50d variant will get a 5.0 litre, triple turbocharged, 6 cylinder diesel engine that delivers 381 hp. All 3 variants will use BMW’s 8 speed automatic transmission.
Make no bones about it, the new BMW X4 looks like an X6 that’s shrunk in size. This is definitely no bad thing and the X4 ensures that you make your arrival known. Engines for India have not been confirmed yet but abroad, the X4 will be made available in xDrive35i (306 bhp) and xDrive 35d flavours. Like the bigger X6, the X4 also has its power channelled through an 8 speed automatic transmission.
The BMW X3 has been, undoubtedly, one of the highest selling models of BMW in India. The diesel engine powering the X3 is a 2.0 litre, 6 cylinder unit that develops 190 bhp. Depending on the variant, the car can be bought with either a 6 speed manual or an 8 speed automatic gearbox. The new X3 gets more features such as BMW ConnectedDrive, a full colour Heads-up display, parking assistant, active cruise control, lane departure warning, pedestrian protection, airbags and an Intelligent Emergency Call function.
The X1 is the most economical route to gain access to the BMW ownership club, barring the 1 Series hatchback. The new BMW X1 still has the low slung profile of its previous version. This car shares its underpinnings with the 1 Series GT to keep production costs to a minimum. The previous version of this car came with BMW’s 2.0 litre, 181 bhp diesel engine hooked up to an 8 speed automatic transmission. Despite a few foibles, it was an extremely capable car and we can very well expect the new one to be the same.
