  2. 2. Driving conditions are never the same. From the weather to the road surface, they can change at a moment’s notice. But in the BMW X , whatever situation you face behind the wheel – potholes, rain, gravel or anything else – you can rest assured that you will be able to conquer them all with confi dence, style and the peace of mind that comes with having capabilities undreamed of in many other vehicles. Add BMW Effi cientDynamics technology, and every drive offers effi cient power along with legendary BMW agility and performance.EVERY ROAD ISA CHANCE FOR DISCOVERY.
  3. 3. Editorial A MODERN DECATHLETE. Award-winning performance, practicality, luxury, space and ef ciency. When BMW created the  rst X in  𶅘 𶅘 𶅘 , it also introduced an all-new category of vehicle: the world’s  rst Sports Activity Vehicle® – a unique blend of utility and re nement, power and performance, dynamic styling and premium luxury. Today’s BMW X is the ultimate in comfort and control, making every journey a rewarding experience. Its appearance is even more noteworthy, from the contoured hood and muscular front grille to 𶉂 ared wheel arches and body-color aprons. A wide variety of models and responsive powertrains address the driver’s individual preferences for sport-oriented performance or pure comfort. Thanks to BMW Ef cientDynamics, the X optimizes fuel ef ciency and reduces emissions; this is especially true in the BMW X xDrive𶅑  d featuring BMW’s Advanced Diesel technology.

  4. 4. BMW EfficientDynamics Less emissions. More driving pleasure. Every road offers an opportunity for discovery. And no vehicle excels at discovering these pleasurable moments quite like the BMW Xfi . Brimming with the latest technologies, armed with precision handling, powered by a thrilling, highly re ned engine, the Xfi driving experience is inspiring, vigorous, and altogether breathtaking. It’s also supremely controllable, thanks to exceptional directional stability from a chassis and double wishbone front suspension built for performance as well as practicality. BMW Ef cientDynamics technologies give it an impressive power-to-ef ciency ratio. The result is a vehicle of unsurpassed capabilities that offers best-in-class performance and ef ciency – especially the BMW Advanced Diesel-powered Xfi xDrive𶅑 fi d. The BMW Xfi . Discovery awaits at every turn.THERE ARE MANY ROADS. IN THE X ,EACH ONE LEADS TO ADVENTURE.06 07 Exterior
  5. 5. ITS LOOKS ARE NOT DECEIVING. THEY ARE INSPIRING. In some vehicles, looks can be misleading – powerdomes, air intakes and more added merely to give the appearance of high performance. Not the BMW X . Every curve, every feature is there for a reason – and styled to delight the eye. From its sleek lines to its sporty, athletic stance, this is a vehicle that demands attention. The X ’s aggressive air intakes direct more air to the high-performance engines for increased power, while centrally positioned foglights and Xenon Adaptive Headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights further distinguish the vehicle’s distinctive front section. A matte aluminum fi nish, and front and rear dark underside protective cladding, allow the X to navigate unpaved roads as easily as tarmac. The front apron is painted entirely in the vehicle’s body color to bring it visually closer to the road. Eye-catching exterior colors, light alloy wheel designs and larger exhaust pipes complete the picture. Creating a vehicle that not only pleases the eye. But stirs the performance-loving soul.

  6. 6. Take a moment to savor the BMW Xfi ’s dynamic profl le. The long wheelbase and short overhangs at the front and rear. The muscular hood and square-shape, 𶉂 ared wheel arches. The contoured 𶉂 anks and L-shape rear taillights featuring glowing LED technology that emits horizontal light bars, a BMW signature design. Concave and convex surfaces create an interplay of light and shadow, while wedge-shape rocker panels suggest continual motion. But this sleekness isn’t just for aesthetics: the Xfi ’s streamlined design also creates a low coeffl cient of drag for further effl ciency. Confl dent, bold, yet still highly refl ned, this is a design of elegant composure and supreme function. From all angles, the BMW Xfi is a perfectly proportioned work of art.CHARISMA:IN THE BMW X ,IT COMESNATURALLY.10 11 Exterior
  7. 7. The BMW X has an instinctive feel for the road. Tarmac, gravel, dirt – it handles them all with ease, thanks in part to a double joint spring strut front axle that delivers unsurpassed agility and superior wheel control. The X includes many performance- enhancing features, such as Hill Descent Control, which holds it to a slow set speed without having to touch the brakes down steep hills. BMW’s Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), combined with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, results in optimum traction. During hard braking, Brake Fade Compensation keeps brake pedal action consistent, even when brakes heat up from heavy or repeated use, such as on long downhill grades; during wet conditions, Brake Drying brings brake pads into contact with rotors to dry them. An array of available features take the X to outstanding heights of control, handling and stability. Active Steering, for example, makes parking, cornering and highway- speed steering easier by changing the amount of steering input needed, based on vehicle speed. Whatever terrain, surface or traffi c you encounter, the BMW X ’s confi dence in hugging the road is matched by your confi dence behind the wheel.

Whichcolors best refl ect the spirit of the times – and Platinum Gray Metallicthe BMW X ? BMW color designers have allthe answers.Long ago, BMW color designers predicted that whitewould come back into style. In many cultures, white isconsidered a pure, healing shade, and this associationperfectly suits the mood of the moment. BMW colordesigners also believe the current predilection for whiteis no fl ash in the pan, either. Unlike furniture, fashionand architecture, trends in the automotive sector tendto be longer lasting.

  9. 9. HANDLES OCCUPANTSAS SUPERBLY AS ITHANDLES ROADS. The BMW X hugs the road with a fi rm, confi dent grasp. The sport seats, shown above, hug the driver just as intimately. An elevated seating position offers a commanding view of the road. And with the addition of sumptuous interior materials, the X truly becomes a sanctuary of unrivaled comfort and taste. Personalize your BMW X with upholstery available in a wide range of colors, including Oyster or Cinnamon Brown Nevada Leather, as well as fi ne wood interior trims. Elegance is met with equally impressive functionality, like the intelligently positioned storage compartments and an instrument panel arranged for optimized ergonomics. Long trips are a breeze with   -way Multi-contour seats with warming or cooling ventilation. For even more convenience, the innovative iDrive in-dash monitor offers a central viewing area where vehicle controls and navigational information can be monitored. This is command central and it’s yours – no matter where you’re headed. Get the latest information on BMW standard and optional features, packages and technical specifi cations.

  10. 10. The BMW X is as masterful in providing relaxing moments as it is rewarding to drive. The interior’s generous dimensions and luxurious appointments create a supremely comfortable ambiance. Put down the split-folding rear seats to create up to   cu. ft. of usable cargo space – or, when equipped with third-row seats for two, the driver can share the journey with up to six passengers. Four-zone automatic air conditioning, including individual adjustable climate zones front and rear, adds to the enjoyment. All on board will appreciate the sliding Panoramic glass moonroof, which opens the interior to fresh air and sunshine, and every breath- taking view of mountains or clouds. And if the scenery outside isn’t enough to keep those in the rear seats entertained, they can view fi lms on a DVD drive with a fold-away  -inch color screen.

Touch triggers emotional responses; it can determine the difference between aversion and attraction. This is why at BMW we have an entire team of experts on hand to ensure that the inte- rior design of every BMW is a sensory delight. The controls of the BMW X , rendered in Pearl Gloss chrome, look as magnifi cent as they are exquisite to the touch. The fi ne grain and coated surfaces of the high-quality, high-tech materials used in the interior are designed to caress your tactile sensors.

  12. 12. WITH GREATPOWER COMESGREATEFFICIENCY. Performance: a word synonymous with the BMW name. Many factors contribute to and enhance a BMW’s performance.

But fi rst and foremost are legendary BMW engines: models of power and torque, yet offering impeccable effi ciency. The X offers three TwinPower Turbo engines to suit your exact driving preferences. Each benefi ts from BMW Effi cientDynamics technology, which signifi cantly reduces fuel consumption and emissions for class-leading, earth-friendly effi ciency – and road-conquering agility.

  18. 18. Right up against the edge of the Arctic Circle –   degrees   minutes north,   degrees   minutes east – winter temperatures hover well below  °F. Only late in the morning does the sun heave into view, and it’s not long before it disappears again under the gray horizon. A pretty desolate region. But suddenly, the dry powder explodes into the frosty air as a BMW X sweeps around the bend. The speed is breath- taking on the icy-smooth surface, a road whose contours can only be guessed at beneath the enveloping white. These are the winter tests in Lapland, in northern Sweden – the frozen extremity of Europe – where each BMW is sent to prove that it can function perfectly, even under extreme conditions. You can watch as the vehicles are put through their paces on the frozen expanses of Lake Hornavan. The X hurtles over the mirror-like surface, brakelights glowing; it fi shtails briefl y and is still. Then it executes a series of circles, slowing gradually to come to a fi nal stop at the farther edge of the ice. For Heinz Krusche, this kind of drama is all in a day’s work.

Each test vehicle is equipped with the very latest in sensory technology; some are turned into veritable laboratories on wheels.

All this driving, measuring and analysis is centered on meeting the needs of the customer. “The great numbers we can get on the test runs are important to us, but not that crucial in the end.

Perilous conditions can and do arise, and more than once Krusche or one of his team has found himself stuck in a fairly severe blizzard. “That is another situation where you’re glad you’re in a BMW,” he says.
