BMW X5 M Facelift

The Bavarian carmaker BMW is planning to launch the BMW X5 in the spring of 2010. Now it offers even more powerful engines and an extended selection of innovative driver assistance systems. This latest boost to its dynamic capability can be highlighted particularly vividly by the addition of the also new M Sports package, available for the new X5 from launch. All the components of the M Sport package for the new BMW X5 have been designed specifically for the Sports Activity Vehicle and are geared precisely to its outstanding dynamic potential. A high-speed setting and the sporty chassis set-up emphasize the high levels of driver involvement offered by the X5 as do the 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in V-spoke design. The carmaker also offers as an option, 20-inch M light-alloy wheels, which lend a particularly exclusive touch. Anyway, in both cases, the wheels come with mixed tires both for the front and rear axle, specially made for the X5. The package also offers exterior paint shade Carbon Black metallic, which joins five other color shades in the range. The designers took into account the position of the sensors and cameras used by the driver assistance systems when shaping the aerodynamically optimized front and rear aprons. Electrically adjustable sports seats for the driver and front passenger, the M leather steering wheel and the footrest of the driver maximizes the driving experience inside the new X5. So, both Park Distance Control and the Side View system can be combined with the M Sport Package and it makes its debut in the BMW X5. For an unmistakable look the carmaker also offers line side window frames in satin-finish aluminum and the BMW Individual roof rails in satin-finish chrome. The sporting ambiance is obtained thanks to the brushed aluminum interior trim elements and a BMW Individual roof liner in anthracite.
