All-new BMW X5 product offering extended to include xDrive35i

 

Abu Khader Automotive has confirmed that customers in Jordan can now purchase the all-new BMW X5 with a second engine variant – the BMW XDrive35i.   This latest model joins the highly successful BMW X5 xDrive50i that was launched in the Middle East late last year. 

 

Established back in 1999, the first generation BMW X5 was the first vehicle of its kind to combine superior dynamics on-road with impressive off-road characteristics thanks to BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system. Since its inception, the BMW X5 has been the absolute market leader in the Sports Activity Vehicle segment, and one of BMW's best-selling model series accounting for almost a third of all BMW models sold globally. 

 

In the Middle East, the BMW X5 continues to be one of the company's best-selling models.  In 2013, 3,624 X5 vehicles were sold across the region.  The all-new BMW X5 xDrive35i is expected to further amplify the vehicle’s success story across the region.

 

The design of the new BMW X5 combines the X hallmark characteristics with the power, presence and the sportiness of classic BMW models. An even more expressive front-end look with twin circular headlights extending into the new broad-set kidney grille; an elegantly stretched silhouette, new distinctive rear and a new Sparkling Brown colour option.

 

Side on, the eye-catching curved air-breather over the athletically moulded wheel arches; horizontal lines and taut surfaces optimise the models aerodynamic properties. From the rear, new aeroblades can be seen along with a newly shaped rectangular exhaust pipe and accentuated lights for a more distinctive look.

 

Inside the redesigned exterior of the new BMW X5 is a more luxurious interior environment with a selection of high quality leather and trims available, atmospheric lighting options and increased spaciousness. In addition, an optional third row of seats will turn the new BMW X5 into a seven-seater.  The outer seats in the second row can be tilted far towards the front, making it easy to access the two additional seats.

 

The BMW X5 xDrive35i engine features TwinPower Turbo technology with Twin Scroll turbocharger, direct injection system High Precision Injection, fully variable valve control (VALVETRONIC) and double VANOS variable camshaft timing. This delivers 225 kW/306 hp to the X5’s wheels and propels the vehicle from 0-60 mph in 6.5 seconds.
