Inside, you still get those little red anodised M paddles on the steering wheel for setting up your own drive modes, plus Competition models have bespoke leather upholstery. The xDrive system has a ‘4WD Sport’ setting like the X3 and X4 M models, allowing for a more rear-biased power setup. Even with all seven seats in play, there’s more than enough space for a golf bag or two, or a couple of large boot organisers. It’s a beefed-up SUV is aimed at regions like South America, Africa and Russia where violent attacks and kidnapping are a little more common. If it’s any consolation, at least the X5’s cargo-carrying capacity doesn’t seem to be compromised by its new seating arrangements. The addition of the third row doesn’t detract anything from the rest of the X5 experience that makes it such a brilliant all-rounder. To start off, as with most SUVs of this type, the X5’s third row is really only just about habitable. As you’d expect for something in this price range, a simple button prod is all it takes for the middle row to slide and tilt out of the way and unlock access to the rear, but to facilitate that the front seatbacks also have to tilt upright to accommodate – and they’ll do so even if someone’s sitting in them.

SINGAPORE – This is familiar territory for us, and possibly even for you too. Not surprisingly, handling isn’t an especially strong area for the BMW either, with significant body roll in the regular hybrid mode. It’s a deep howl, not a V8 rumble, and it’s amplified by noise being piped in through the speakers in Sport mode that sounds a little artificial at higher revs. It’s not often that you can get a genuine performance machine that can frighten sports cars at stop lights, take the kids to school in and return decent fuel economy. With so much weight sitting high off of the ground, and managed by so much software, the X5 never quite reaches the state of nirvana you can still achieve in a BMW sedan. The 2020 BMW X5 M Competition is a bona-fide super SUV . The top variant BMW X5 M Competition which comes at a price tag of Rs. The average savings for the 2021 BMW X5 M 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A) is 0.9% below the MSRP. At this point in the year, BMW has 2020 and 2021 models listed on its website.

However, like a fine whiskey gets better with age, the X5 gets better with velocity. Use it as a five-seater though and it’s still got one of the best engines in the segment, handles somewhat like an extra-large hot hatch, feels intuitive and fuss-free to operate despite the masses of tech onboard, and thanks to standard air suspension, insulates the cabin from the vagaries of our road conditions like the best luxury limos. While this flourish adds style, it takes away from practicality and cargo space thanks to the plunging roofline. Thanks to its distinctive colour, it has nothing to fear. The BMW X5 has proven itself a consummate luxury car, but are two additional seats enough for it to serve as convincingly in a family role? However, it doesn’t drive like what I thought would feel “big.” Its six-cylinder turbo engine is responsive enough for casual driving or a daily commute. However, the proliferation of models is somewhat of an aberration. Launched nearly two decades ago, the first X5 introduced the whole idea of the premium SUV – with 2.2 million models sold since over the three generations since launch.
That engine, the N57S had two small turbos, one for each three cylinders of the 3-liter straight-six mill, and a bigger one to which they were connected. So that myself or anyone with an IQ higher than three can drive with puppy-like exuberance and make our little monkey brains happy. The passenger compartment can withstand an explosive blast from 15kg of explosive from four metres, and the car is also impervious to ‘secondary’ attacks. BMW says the standard X5 was always designed with the possibility of armouring in mind, and the German brand has added armour and bespoke parts to cover any potential weaknesses the original car had. But BMW has for the first time added an optional Off Road package. Here, the adjustable air suspension comes in handy, allowing you to raise the vehicle for added clearance. Adaptive shocks and rear air springs can be fitted, and can be controlled by the driver along with the other driving systems through a range of modes. The BMW X5 xDrive45e can toggle between Sport, Hybrid, Electric or Adaptive on the console and use or conserve your electric charge. You may recall that we’ve encountered the new fourth-generation BMW X5 twice before – at its international launch in the United States last year, and with a Singaporean first drive back in March.
