  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 confidence, style and the peace of mind that comes with having capabilities undreamed of in many other vehicles. Add BMW EfficientDynamics technology, and every drive offers efficient power along with legendary BMW agility and performance. EVERY ROAD IS A CHANCE FOR DISCOVERY.
  3. 3. Editorial A MODERN DECATHLETE. Award-winning performance, practicality, luxury, space and efficiency. When BMW created the first X in , it created an all-new cate- gory of vehicle: the world’s first Sports Activity Vehicle.® The X offers a unique blend of utility and refinement, power and performance, dynamic styling and premium luxury, making every journey a joyous experience. In errands around town to winding mountain roads to cross-country treks, every moment in the X offers the ultimate in comfort and control. And for , the BMW X reaches even more impressive territory. Under the hoods of the xDrivei and xDrivei are responsive, new powertrains. A host of redesigned features freshen its appearance, from the contoured hood and muscular front grille to flared wheel arches and body-color aprons. The X is available in an expanded variety of models, addressing each driver’s individual preferences for sport-oriented performance or pure comfort. And The new BMW X Technology Equipment Overviews thanks to BMW EfficientDynamics, the X’s power and performance come with greater fuel efficiency and reduced emissions; this is especially true in the X xDrived with BMW’s Advanced Diesel THE POWER OF GENERATING GREATER TURN YOUR VISION THE NEW BMW X 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 new BMW X. Brimming with the latest technologies, armed with precision handling, powered by a thrilling, highly refined engine, the X’s driving expe- rience 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 practi- cality. BMW EfficientDynamics technologies give it an impressive power-to-efficiency ratio. The result is a vehicle of unsurpassed capabilities that offers best-in- class performance and efficiency – especially the BMW Advanced Diesel-powered X xDrived. The BMW X. Discovery awaits at every turn. THERE ARE MANY ROADS. IN THE X, EACH ONE LEADS TO JOY. 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 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 new high-performance engines for increased power, while centrally positioned foglights and Xenon Adaptive Headlights with new LED Daytime Running Lights further distinguish the vehicle’s distinctive front section. A matte aluminum finish, 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. New 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. For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts at the back of this brochure. 08 09 Exterior
  6. 6. Take a moment to savor the X’s dynamic profile. The long wheelbase and short overhangs at the front and rear. The muscular hood and square-shaped, flared wheel arches. The contoured flanks and L-shaped rear taillights featuring glowing LED technology that emits horizontal light bars, an all-new BMW signature design. Concave and convex surfaces create an interplay of light and shadow, while wedge-shaped rocker panels suggest continual motion. But this sleekness isn’t just for aesthetics: the X’s streamlined design also creates a low coefficient of drag for further efficiency. Confident, bold, yet still highly refined, this is a design of elegant composure and supreme function. From all angles, the X is a perfectly proportioned work of art. CHARISMA: IN THE X, IT COMES NATURALLY. 10 11 Exterior
  7. 7. The X has an instinctive feel for the road. Tarmac, gravel, dirt – the X handles them all with ease, thanks in part to a double joint spring strut front axle that delivers unsurpassed agility and superior wheel control. BMW’s Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) combined with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive results in optimum traction. DSC includes many performance-enhancing features, such as Hill Descent Control, which holds the X to a slow set speed without having to touch the brakes down steep hills. During hard braking, Brake Fade Compensation keeps brake pedal action consistent, even when brakes heat up from repeated or heavy 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 optional features take the X to new 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 traffic you encounter, the X’s confidence in hugging the road is matched by your confidence behind the wheel. For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts at the back of this brochure. INSTINCTIVE HANDLING. DISTINCTIVE CHARACTER. 12 13 Exterior
  8. 8. ON THE CONCAVE AND CONVEX CONTOURS COLORS OF THE NEW BMW X5, METALLIC COLORS WITH DEPTH SHIMMER LIKE LIQUID. Red vehicles seem the fastest, while white cars are thought of as sparkling clean. Which colors Platinum Gray Metallic best reflect the spirit of the times – and the new X? BMW color designers have all the answers. Long ago, BMW color designers predicted that white would come back into style. In many cultures, white is considered a pure, healing shade, and this association perfectly suits the mood of the moment. BMW color designers also believe the current predilection for white is no flash in the pan, either. Unlike furniture, fashion and architecture, trends in the automotive sector tend to be longer lasting. The public’s growing appreciation of the natural and BRONZE IS KEY FOR the sustainable has also influenced BMW designers’ NEXT SEASON. THE color selections for the X. They believe this Sports COLOR RADIATES THE Activity Vehicle® is best complemented by muted, SUSTAINING POWER OF natural colors. The new metallic colors – Platinum Gray, NATURE. THE EFFECT Sparkling Bronze and Deep Sea Blue – are part of this IS INCREASED WHEN approach. BMW designers also recommend a strong COMBINED WITH light-dark contrast between the exterior paint finish and OYSTER NEVADA LEATHER the interior. Those who like to stay at the forefront of UPHOLSTERY AND design trends will opt for a combination like Sparkling DARK BAMBOO WOOD TRIM. Bronze Metallic paint with Oyster Nevada Leather upholstery and Dark Bamboo Wood interior trim. Sparkling Bronze Metallic DARK BLUE CONNOTES UNDERSTATED ELEGANCE. COMBINED WITH THE LIGHT-DARK CONTRAST OF AN OYSTER NEVADA LEATHER INTERIOR, THE BMW X5 TAKES ON AN EXTRAORDINARILY ATHLETIC LOOK. Deep Sea Blue Metallic For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts at the back of this brochure.
  9. 9. HANDLES OCCUPANTS AS SUPERBLY AS IT HANDLES ROADS. The X hugs the road with a firm, confident grasp. It hugs the driver just as intimately. For starters, an elevated seating position offers a commanding view of the road. But with the addition of sumptuous interior materials, the X truly becomes a sanctuary of unrivaled comfort and taste. Personalize your X with upholstery available in a wide range of colors, including new Oyster or Cinnamon Brown Nevada Leather, as well as fine 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 an Active Ventilated Seat Package that offers -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. For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts at the back of this brochure. 16 17 Interior
  10. 10. The 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 – or put down the split-folding rear seats to create up to  cu. ft. of usable cargo space. When equipped with optional 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 breathtaking view of mountains or clouds. And if the scenery outside isn’t enough to keep those in the rear seats entertained, they can view films on an optional DVD drive with a fold-away -inch color screen. For details on the availability of standard and optional features, please refer to the Equipment charts at the back of this brochure. THE FEELING OF ENDLESS SPACE – FOR JOURNEYS YOU’LL NEVER WANT TO END. 18 19 Interior
  11. 11. FITS LIKE A GLOVE. Exclusive, sporty and perfect down to the last detail: the interior of the new BMW X combines the style of an elegant luxury sedan with the athleticism of a Sports ® Activity Vehicle, while offering the highest levels of comfort. Our sense of touch is the most intimate of our five senses. And the most precise. With more than  receptors in each of our fingertips, we can detect superficial irregularities just .-inch wide that are invisible to the naked eye. 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 new BMW X, rendered in Pearl Gloss chrome, look as magnificent as they are exquisite to the touch. The fine grain and coated surfaces of the high-quality, high- tech materials used in the interior are designed to caress your tactile sensors. And the specially selected leather is treated with such lavish care that its soft, supple texture is extraordinarily long-lasting. BMW designers take particular care to ensure that all seams are even and harmonize with the interior design. The driver’s and passengers’ other senses will be equally pampered. The front seats can, as an option, be heated and even ventilated by means of perforations in the leather. Four-zone automatic air conditioning is available, creating a pleasant climate for all seats. And an elegant new leather color, Oyster – a subtle off-white shade – conveys the sense of a generous, open area, like a contemporary living room. This feeling of freedom and space is enhanced by the exceptionally large Panoramic glass moonroof. In short: the interior of the new BMW X is a uniquely pleasurable experience for all the senses.

  12. 12. WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT EFFICIENCY. Performance: a word synonymous with the BMW name. Many factors contribute to and enhance a BMW’s performance. Optional Sport Activity and M Sport Packages are teeming with features that enhance the X’s sporting looks and performance. There is the new X xDrivei Sport Activity model, which comes equipped with Sport Activity Package features and offers M Sport upgrades. But first and foremost are legendary BMW engines: models of power and torque, yet offering impeccable efficiency. The X offers three TwinPower Turbo engines to suit your exact driving preferences.

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 breathtaking on the icy-smooth surface, a road whose contours can only be guessed at beneath the enveloping white.
