BMW Australia has significantly expanded its range of topline X5 and X7 SAV (Sports Activity Vehicles).

The new xDrive25d uses a four-cylinder TwinPower turbo-diesel that develops 170kW of power and 450Nm of torque. This is driven through an eight-speed Sport Steptronic transmission.

The xDrive45e is the first hybrid variant available for the new generation BMW X5. It has a six-cylinder petrol engine, which replaces the four-cylinder power unit of the previous generation X5 xDrive40e. It combines this with a powerful electric motor for an impressive combined total output of 290kW. The xDrive45e accelerate from 0-100km/h in 5.6 seconds.

More importantly than getting to 100km/h quickly is that the hybrid battery has received significant improvements in fuel efficiency and driving range.
