BMW makes Australia’s favourite luxury large SUV more desirable with new-gen X5
23 Nov 2018
BMW’s X5 large luxury SUV has had a stranglehold on its segment for the majority of its existence in Australia, having topped the sales charts for 14 consecutive years against competition such as the Range Rover Sport, Mercedes-Benz GLE/ML and Audi Q7.
That streak looks set to continue into 2018 and beyond with the release of the all-new G05 series, replacing the F15 that went on sale in 2013.
The new model receives big upgrades to tech, design and comfort, while the G05 has also grown in all dimensions when compared to the F15.
At launch only two diesel variants will be offered – the 30d and performance-honed M50d – with the petrol-powered 40i set to join the line-up early next year.
Will the new X5 capture the hearts and minds of buyers like its predecessors have?
Model release date: 1 November 2018
