With the imminent launch of the new BMW X5 we take a look at which models the German automaker is set to launch locally in 2019.

The launch of BMW's new X5 is imminent and it serves as the end of a very busy model year for the German automaker.

The brand has launched an SUV crossover offensive in 2018; the launch of its X2 crossover earlier in March and the X4 in September are highlights for the brand. 

In between those two launches BMW also launched its new M5, updated i3, the first-ever i8 Roadster and updated i8 Coupe. 

Here's how much the new X5 costs in SA 

There was also the introduction of its hardcore M3 variant called the CS. 

But wait, there's more. The German automaker confirmed they'll launch no less than nine new models in the first quarter alone. 

What to expect in 2019?
