BMW India has silently introduced a new 'SportX' variant to its X5 SUV lineup in the country. The new BMW X5 xDrive 30d SportX is the brand's latest entry-level model, replacing the outgoing 'xDrive 30d Sport' trim. The new BMW X5 SportX trim is priced slightly higher at Rs 74.90 lakh, ex-showroom (India).
The 2020 BMW X5 is now offered in three variants: xDrive 30d SportX, xDrive 30d xLine and xDrive 40i M Sport. The BMW X5 SportX and the xLine variants are both offered with the same diesel engine, producing the identical power and torque figures.
This comes in the form of a 3.0-litre six-cylinder unit churning out 265bhp at 4000rpm and 620Nm of peak torque at 1500rpm. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
There is also a petrol engine offered on the BMW X5, however, this is limited to the SUV's top-spec xDrive 40i M Sport model. This engine comes in the form of a 3.0-litre twin-turbo petrol unit producing 340bhp at 5500rpm and 450Nm of torque at 1500rpm, mated to the same eight-speed automatic gearbox. All three variants come with BMW's xDrive technology, sending power to all four wheels.
Coming back to the new entry-level X5 SportX, the variant comes with a host of features and equipment. This includes LED headlamps, ambient lighting, sports seats, automatic tailgate, 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, gesture control, 19-inch alloy wheels, park assist, and a 10-speaker audio system; among others.
Safety features on offer with the BMW X5 SportX include multiple airbags, ABS, cornering brake control, dynamic stability control, traction control, attentiveness assistance, side-impact protection, electric parking brake with auto-hold, hill descent control and others.
However, being an entry-level trim there are certain features, which the SportX misses out on compared to the mid-spec xLine variant. This includes the optional Laser LED headlamps, paddle-shifters, BMW display key, 16-speaker Harmon Kardon system, 360-degree camera, wireless charging and 20-inch alloy wheels, to name a few.
The new BMW X5 xDrive SportX variant is offered in a range of three paint schemes: Black Sapphire, Phytonic Blue and Mineral White.
