SUV and dynamic character are two completely different terms which don’t go hand in hand except when it comes to certain manufacturers with an intuition to create something which defies the laws of physics. BMW and their M division are known for the above cited reasons and their products have stood for uncompromising dynamic flavour but doing that with an SUV that is designed for more practicality is a challenge in itself.

The BMW X5 is an SUV which was always known for its dynamic prowess despite its not-so dynamic friendly size. The X5 now flaunts the M Sport tag for a more dynamic and sportier purpose. The X5 xDrive30d M Sport has been launched today at a price of Rs. 75.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi). To be locally produced at the BMW’s Chennai plant, the X5 M Sport will be available with a choice of Alpine White, Space Grey and Carbon Black as exterior colour options.

The X5 is known for its sporting elegance and premium quality interiors but the M badge adds a host of dynamic driving features and athletic design with the M Aerodynamic Package. Key features available with the M sport badge include lightweight alloy wheels, BMW individual high-gloss shadow line, M-specific vehicle key and tailpipe cover with high gloss chrome covering. The interior features include the M leather steering wheel, heads-up display, comfort seats for driver and BMW Individual roofliner.

Apart from the features available with the X5 xDrive30d M Sport, changes made to the car include adaptive LED headlamps, the distinctive kidney grille in a matte black finish and prominent athletic side contours. The interior gets adjustable front seats for the driver and passenger in leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof.

The X5 xDrive30d M Sport will be powered by BMW’s 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder diesel engine delivering 258 BHP of power and 560 Nm of torque. The top speed of the X5 xDrive30d M Sport is electronically limited to 230 km/hr while it does 0-100 km/hr in 6.9 seconds. The one-of-a-kind SUV sports an eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system is offered as a standard in the form of BMW xDrive.
