                                    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-

                                    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.

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.

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
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.

                    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

                                         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.

THE FEELING OF ENDLESS SPACE –
FOR JOURNEYS YOU’LL NEVER WANT TO END.


18 19 Interior
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.

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.

  • 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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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. 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.

  • 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. WITH GREAT POWER COMES GREAT EFFICIENCY. Performance: a word synonymous with the BMW name. Many factors contribute to and enhance a BMW’s performance.

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. 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 fishtails briefly and is still. Then it executes a series of circles, slowing gradually to come to a final stop at the farther edge of the ice. For Heinz Krusche, this kind of drama is all in a day’s work.
