BMW X5 Extra Sportiness, Extra Luxury
The X5 was built to be Merc's sportiest SUV and has been fairly popular in the Indian market. But the third generation X5 is certainly a refined package. The moment BMW took the wraps off the new X5 M Sport, I made up my mind to get one for me. Though I desired for a petrol version, but finally settled out with the diesel one. I was quite delighted to see how so many things have been changed for some good. The front poses the same signature kidney grille while I found muscular lines and sharp creases all over the body giving it a sporty appearance. The cabin exudes only luxury with the dashboard being the most user-friendly and within the reach of the driver, something that was missing in the previous X5. The new iDrive infotainment, largest sunroof and a massive boot space are all that you need for your long weekend drive. The 255bhp engine was already a hit but the new 8-speed automatic was rewarding that drags this 2.3-tonne SUV from 0-100kmph in just 7 seconds. I have always loved the way BMW delivers quality to its cars and the new X5 M Sport proves that it still has the guts to knockout contenders such as Audi Q7.
