It will take on the Mercedes-Benz GLE, Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90
The new X5 is bigger than its predecessor.
Comes five years after the third-gen SUV went on sale in India in 2014.
Expected to be offered with both petrol and diesel engine options.
Likely to be priced between Rs 75 lakh and Rs 85 lakh.
After debuting the new X5 back in June 2018, BMW is now set to launch the fourth-gen SUV in India. It will go on sale here on 16 May 2019. The new X5 is based on BMW’s latest CLAR (Cluster Architecture) platform that also underpins the 7 Series, 5 Series, X3 and the X4.
Thanks to the new platform, the fourth-gen X5 is bigger than its predecessor. At 4992mm x 2004mm x 1745mm (LxWxH), it is 36mm longer, 66mm wider and 19mm taller than the model it replaces. The wheelbase too has grown by 42mm and now stands at 2975mm.
