The BMW X5 was first revealed in 1999 at the North American International Auto Show and it was an instant hit both the UK and globally. In 2003, the model was improved with the introduction of the xDrive four-wheel drive system along with the engine upgrades and subtle styling changes. Since its launch in the UK in 2000, the Bavarian carmaker managed to sell 62.872 X5s, with diesel-powered versions being the most popular models.

Their last X5 is now on sale for a price starting at EUR53.075 OTR. The engineers will also upgrade the optional equipment list of the X5 and X6 and both will be available with the latest hard disc based BMW Professional Multimedia Navigation system that features the nine-channel amplifier with 825W and 16-speaker configuration BMW Individual audio system.
