X5 BMW 2019 Price, Specifications, Features, Highlights: The BMW X5 now in its fourth-generation has been a major success around the world for the Bavarian automaker. Globally, BMW has sold over 2.2 million units of the BMW X5 since it was first introduced in 1999. This also spawned a full range of other SUVs that BMW now currently sell like the BMW X1, X2, X3, X4, X6 and the upcoming BMW X7 flagship. While BMW prefers to identify their off-roaders as SAVs (Sports Activity Vehicle), as they reckon that their range of tall riding vehicles can deliver car-like driving dynamics, rather than utility. The BMW X5 is a brand new model that replaces the F15 generation with the G05 generation. The 2019 X5 is expected to be launched in India with petrol and diesel engines on offer, along with a host of new features like an all-digital instrument cluster, their latest generation i-Drive infotainment system along with a long list of other features.
