2011 BMW X5 xDrive35i details released

New Bmw X5

The details have finally been released on the new 2011 BMW X5 xDrive35i. The 2011 BMW X5 however is somewhat underwhelming in it's changes from the 2010 X5. There are obviously improvements but nothing to write home about, or even to make you feel bad for owning one of the older X5 models.

2011 BMW X5 offers lots of choice

The 2011 BMW X5 comes with an automatic 8 speed transmission as standard along with four-wheel drive. There are a number of different engines variants available and these include the:

• xDrive50i - V8 Petrol engine with TwinPower turbo, 300kW • xDrive35i - 6 cylinder petrol engine with TwinPower turbo, 225kW • xDrive40d - 6 cylinder diesel engine with TwinPower turbo, 22kW • xDrive30d - 6 cylinder diesel engine with Turbo charger, 180kW

The X535i drives 0-100km/h in just 6.8 seconds with a top speed of 235km/h. The average fuel consumption clocks in at just 10.1 litres/100km and a CO2 emissions level of just 236 grams/km.

Looks wise, the new 2011 BMW X5 xDrive35i remains much the same as its 2010 predecessor, with only minor changes being made. These changes though are almost not noticeable, and all the major differences coming under the hood, as listed in the number of engine variants.

The 2011 BMW X5 xDrive35i goes on sale in May 2011.
