New BMW X5 M Competition Features
The BMW X5 is an iconic SUV for both BMW and the automotive world. And when BMW decided to give the X5 the full M car treatment back in 2009, it has constantly evolved and today sits as one of the finest performance SUVs on the market.
This latest generation combines plentiful interior room with a large boot and prodigious levels of power and torque.
Keen to keep up with technology, this is the first time the X5 M Competition also features mild-hybrid technology.
As with every BMW model, the X5 M Competition does not just place a focus on providing a thrilling driving experience. Refinement, comfort and technology are all world class too - this is a vehicle that can do it all.
Design and Practicality
A legend in the BMW range, and the first SUV made by the Munich manufacturer - the X5 is the pinnacle mainstream SUV.
The X5 M Competition takes the powerful presence of the original model and then enhances it even further with legendary M styling and flair - it is undoubtedly the ultimate X5. Slimmer LED headlights, and forged wheels presented in a staggered 21/22-inch set-up help give this ultimate X5 the perfect stance.
Black detailing is used for the large kidney grille, along with distinct bumper, mirror and window detailing for a more aggressive motorsport look. As an overall package, the X5 M Competition is one which exudes performance and pedigree.
Technology and Safety
With a bespoke motorsport-enhanced exterior, the interior of this SUV follows on the theme perfectly.
M of course stands for motorsport, but the BMW X5 M Competition blends superior comfort with motorsport-inspired touches, to ensure this ultimate X5 is a perfect example of The Ultimate Driving Machine.
M Multifunction seats in full Merino leather take inspiration from bucket seats, enhanced with better comfort for the best of both worlds. A stunning digital instrument cluster, teamed with a widescreen infotainment display add further beauty to this fine interior.
With just the right level of racing detail, complemented with true BMW class and refinement ensure the X5 M Competition is a worthy addition to the M model range.
Engines and Performance
BMW M have been enhancing the performance aspect of BMWs since the early 1970s, with legendary results.
The M division has of course injected this heritage into the heart of the BMW X5 M Competition resulting in an incredible 616bhp of power. This comes from a 4.4-litre V8 petrol engine, which is complemented with mild-hybrid technology for the first time ever.
All this renown BMW M Power craft ensures that this is one of the fastest luxury performance SUVs on the market, completing 0 to 62mph in just 3.9 seconds. For a sports car, this is impressive, but for a large SUV it is certainly something to behold for sure.
