UPDATE: Wheels24 has contacted BMW SA for confirmation regarding the new model's local availability and will update the story as soon as possible.

Pricing for the all-new BMW X5, which we spotted testing in camouflage  earlier this year, has been revealed. 

BMW South Africa's website shows the line-up will initially comprise two derivatives, both powered by diesel engines.

The automaker quotes the top of the range M50d with 294kW and a 5.2 second 0-100km/h time. 

While the xDrive30d has a claimed 195kW and completes the 0-100km/h sprint in 6.5 seconds. The new SAV (sports activity vehicle) will be available in two trim packages: xLine and M Sport package. 

The next-generation X4 will arrive locally later in September 2018.
