BMW X5 with a four-cylinder diesel and rear-wheel drive

BMW X5 2014The third-generation BMW X5 will be available for the first time from December 2013 with a BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine and rear-wheel drive. The engine powering the new BMW X5 xDrive25d and BMW X5 sDrive25d uses two turbochargers and common rail direct injection to produce maximum output of 160 kW/218 hp and links up as standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle stands at 5.6–5.7 litres per 100 kilometres (50.4–49.6 mpg imp) for the BMW X5 sDrive25d (CO2 emissions: 149–151 g/km) and 5.8–5.9 litres per 100 kilometres (48.7–47.9 mpg imp) for the BMW X5 xDrive25d (CO2 emissions: 154–156 g/km, figures depending on the tyre format selected).

Also new to the line-up are the BMW X5 xDrive35i with its 225 kW/306 hp six-cylinder in-line petrol engine and the BMW X5 xDrive40d, whose straight-six diesel unit develops 230 kW/313 hp. The new additions take their places alongside the existing BMW X5 xDrive30d, whose six-cylinder in-line diesel engine produces 190 kW/258 hp, the V8 petrol BMW X5 xDrive50i (330 kW/450 hp) and a BMW M Performance Automobile – the BMW X5 M50d (280 kW/381 hp).
