BMW to launch the new X5 tomorrow
BMW will be launching its new X5 SUV tomorrow. This will be the third launch from the Munich-based auto maker for this year. The other two have been the 3 GT and M6. Expect the M3, M$ and M5 to be launched in the coming days after the X5. The new BMW X5 comes as standard with a Drive Dynamic Control switch, allowing the driver to fine-tune the balance between comfort and sportiness on and off-road. The latest version of the BMW xDrive system, which intelligently manages the torque split between the front and rear wheels, has been enhanced for efficiency and now weighs 1.4kg less. It takes information about road and wheel speeds, steering angle and accelerator position to interpret the driver’s intentions and what the car is doing to calculate how to apportion engine torque. As a result it eliminates both understeer and oversteer to deliver improved cornering abilities.
