BMW showcased the all-new BMW X5 at the Singapore Motorshow

MW Asia and Performance Motors Limited showcased the all-new BMW X5 at the Singapore Motorshow 2019 over the weekend. The annual motoring event was held from 10 to 13 January 2019 at Suntec Singapore Convention Centre.

“BMW Asia is proud to work side-by-side with Performance Motors Limited and Performance Munich Autos to present the latest range of BMW and BMW M models at the Singapore Motorshow 2019,” said Christopher Wehner, Managing Director, BMW Group Asia. “In 2019, BMW will continue its product offensive, with the customer’s needs at the centre. In addition to the all-new BMW X5, the all-new BMW 3 Series, and the all-new BMW Z4, BMW will also introduce a number of new models designed for the luxury market. Customers in Singapore can expect to see the first-ever BMW X7 and the all-new BMW 8 Series Coupe and Convertible in 2019. Each of these models will revolutionise driving pleasure with the latest innovations, such as the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, that will amaze customers from the start.”

The fourth generation of the BMW X5, the Sports Activity Vehicle that started it all, impresses with its wealth of innovations and represents the most compelling embodiment yet of the familiar Sports Activity Vehicle (SAV) blueprint: the ability to venture off road combined with a talent for dynamic driving pleasure on it. The new exterior design language clearly emphasizes the presence, authority and robustness of the all-new BMW X5. The interior, meanwhile, blends generous levels of space with modern design and a luxurious ambience.

“The annual Singapore Motorshow has always been an important motoring event for car buyers and enthusiasts,” said Arnt Bayer, Managing Director, Performance Motors Limited. “We’re excited to kick off 2019 with the latest edition of the BMW X5, continuing the ‘X’ trend after launching three BMW X models last year. With its powerful performance and dominant look, we are confident the all-new BMW X5 will be ‘The Boss’ in its class. The first variant available in Singapore is the five-seater BMW X5 xDrive40i, and for those with a bigger family, they can look forward to the seven-seater version in Q2 2019.”

From March 2019, the all-new BMW X5 fitted with the BMW Operating System 7.0 will also be able to install the full version of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant by Remote Software Upgrade without having to visit a dealer. After the upgrade, BMW X5 owners will increasingly be able to operate their car and access its functions and information simply by speaking.

All-new BMW X5

The new edition of the BMW X5 captures the imagination with clarity of design, comfortable, sporty and authoritative driving attributes and innovative equipment features. Its exterior features powerfully sculpted surfaces, precise lines, large BMW kidney grille with a one-piece surround and three-dimensional form rear lights, while its interior exudes a classy and modern aura thanks to sophisticated materials, harmonious design and an innovative control concept. The all-new BMW X5 hosts the debut of the BMW LiveCockpit Professional which allows the display and control system to be geared even more precisely to individual driver needs. Also available is a two-axle air suspension system with an automatic self-levelling function – this provides excellent ride comfort in all driving conditions. The all-new BMW X5 also features the latest generation of BMW xDrive, which is now able to split drive torque between the front and rear wheels even more efficiently as the situation demands, to maximise traction, agility and directional stability.
