M Sports boost for X5

2007-06-01 09:29
BMW's flashy M Sports Package is being made available for the new X5 range of SAVs. Local versions should be here by the end of 2007.

While the latest generation X5's styling has been described as being tame and understated, the addition of a killer sports kit should do much to redeem its road bully status.

The X5's M Sports pack includes aerodynamic M bumpers for the front and rear and 19-inch V-spoke light alloy wheels within flared arches. Twenty-inch alloys are optional.

Inside the cabin, the electrically adjustable sport seats are available for the front passengers, an M-leather covered steering wheel and aluminium interior trim.

Driving dynamics are amped up with the sports suspension tuned for more athletic pursuits.

Locally, BMW SA has confirmed that the M Sports package for the X5 will be available from September production, with first deliveries expected in December.
