The M Sport trim, which BMW says accounted for 80 per cent of sales on the last X5, will cost $4000 and brings bigger brakes, unique wheels, an adaptive suspension, a sportier bodykit and M-branded add-ons behind the wheel.
Two 19-inch alloy wheel choices, another 20-inch design and a cost-option 21-inch design are all available.
Jumping to the M50d swaps your 20-inch alloy wheels for 22-inch units, and adds high-end niceties like soft-close doors, four-zone climate control, a ‘BMW Individual leather instrument panel’, heated/cooled front cupholders, changeable lumbar seat support, heated front seats, a 16-speaker stereo, laser headlights, and an M Sport exterior package.
Power comes from a 3.0-litre quad-turbo inline-six diesel engine, pumping out 294kW and 760Nm for a claimed 5.2-second sprint to 100km/h.
Active anti-roll and rear-wheel steering are both standard too, in keeping with the M50d’s sportier focus.
Regardless of trim, the BMW Live Cockpit Professional infotainment and driver display system will be included, combining two 12.3-inch screens to take on the Audi Virtual Cockpit and Mercedes MBUX setups. A head-up display, gesture control, sports seats and two rear-seat USB ports are all standard as well.
