New BMW X5 and BMW X6 arrive in Singapore

The updated BMW X5 and BMW X6 have made their way to Singapore.

Both models have undergone makeovers for their mid-life refresh. The X5 struts onto the scene with a fresh pair of headlights, shedding a cool 35mm off their outline. These Matrix LED marvels are also armed with a non-dazzling high beam feature alongside arrow-shaped daytime driving elements that add a dash of futuristic flair.

The X5’s redesigned air intake and vertical air curtains in the front fascia look sleeker, and the rear has a new L-shape BMW light signature, forming an X-shaped motif.

Now, let’s shift our attention to the X6. The headlight game is strong here too, with a slimmer profile. Those arrow-shaped daytime driving lights? Oh, they’re back, and they’re sleeker than ever.

The front apron boasts black surfaces that flirt with an octagonal shape. And when you throw in the M-specific side skirts and the M High-gloss Shadowline trim from the M Sport package, you’ve got a recipe for sporty elegance.

Slide into the cabin, and you’re met with BMW’s Curved Display that merges a 12.3-inch information display with a 14.9-inch control display. And that ambient light bar? It’s not just lighting up the space; it’s setting the mood, creating an atmosphere that’s as inviting as a high-end lounge.

All SUV models from BMW come with sports seats, and the instrument panel is wrapped in leather-like Sensafin. The X5 boasts fine wood trim elements, an ode to timeless elegance. Meanwhile, the X6 takes a daring step with carbon fibre cabin trim, a nod to the cutting edge.

Both the X5 and the X6 are powered by a 376bhp 3.0-litre six-cylinder engine that’s not just about muscle; it’s a dance of efficiency too, thanks to its 48V mild hybrid technology. Paired with an 8-speed ZF transmission and the iconic xDrive all-wheel drive system, it’s a symphony of performance that hits the century mark in just 5.4 seconds. 

Both the X5 and the X6 are now making their grand debut at authorized BMW dealers in Singapore.
