If you thought that only BMW India had been on roll, then you are mistaken, BMW AG too has been launching/updating slew of products, one after another.

If you thought that only BMW India had been on roll, then you are mistaken, BMW AG too has been launching/updating slew of products, one after another.

It feels like just yesterday when we explored at All New Third Generation BMW X1, and here we are where, BMW just announced the launch of the LCI of X5 and X6 in the global markets.

Both X5 and the X6 have been an immensely successful product not only in the global markets, but also India and now with this new LCI coming in, we believe, they are poised to retain their market leadership.

So, let’s explore what has changed and what has remained the same.

On the BMW X5, The first striking change on the outside upfront has to be slimmer headlights and an illuminated Kidney Grille. The new headlight unit is now having a 35 mm slimmer outline, arrow shaped DRL’s and Matrix LED Headlamps with automatic high beam assist. The illuminated kidney grille is offered as an option on all the 6-cylinder variants, to enhance their individuality.

On the BMW X6, M Sport Package is now standard, that immediately means, that the crossover now gets aggressive bumpers, sportier alloys, and sportier seats. However, on the BMW X5, the M Sport Package is still offered as an option.

On the inside, the much-famed BMW curved display makes its presence felt. This time around it is amongst the biggest one available in any BMW, the driver display has a 12.3-inch information display, and the center screen is almost 15 inches. Another new addition to the curved display is the ambient light bar with highly effective LED backlighting integrated below the trim element in the front passenger area. The relevant model lettering – “X5” or “X6” – is added to the light bar’s graphic; in the two flagship models it displays the M logo. The control panel on the centre console includes additional touch-sensitive surfaces and a newly designed gear selector lever.

Sky Lounge feature panoramic sunroof illuminated with LED’s was first seen in the BMW 7 Series, now makes its debut in the X5 as well. The X5 and the X6 ditch the Harman Kardon Audio Setup for a more premium Bowers & Wilkins setup. In India, Volvo Cars, extensively offer Bowers & Wilkins setup in their premium cars and SUVs like the Volvo XC60, Volvo XC90 & the Volvo S90.

The new BMW X5 and new BMW X6 are available with the choice of an eight-cylinder petrol engine, a six-cylinder in-line petrol and a six-cylinder in-line diesel. All of the engines are paired to a new eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, complete with gearshift paddles on the steering wheel.

Below are the details of power figures of different engine options within the X5 & the X6 range:


• 4.4 litre V8, 530 Hp/750 Nm Torque

• 3.0 litre, in-line 6, 380 Hp/540 Nm Torque


• 3.0 litre, in-line 6, 298 Hp/670 Nm Torque

With these different combinations to choose from, a 0-100 dash can be achieved either as fast as 4.6 seconds or as slow was 7.1 seconds.

Comfort and safety have always been an hallmark at BMW and in the new BMW X5 and new BMW X6 can be taken to another new level with a significantly expanded selection of automated driving and parking systems. Updates include enhanced capabilities for the standard front-collision warning system, which can now also reduce the risk of a collision with cyclists, pedestrians or oncoming traffic when turning off a road. Among the options now available are automatic Speed Limit Assist, exit warning, Active Navigation, route speed control, traffic light recognition (depending on the market), Emergency Stop Assistant, Lane Change Assistant and Merging Assistant.

While the current generation X5 is still in sale in India, we expect BMW India to get the updated X5 to India by March 2023.
