BMW is proud to announce that their leading BMW X5 model will be built right here in Malaysia. Nicknamed “The Boss”, the X5 will be joining 14 other models to be built in the assembly plant in Kulim, and it is the second model introduced to be locally assembled this year.
The new locally assembled X5 will be available to Malaysians in two variants: the BMW X5 xDrive35i and the BMW X5 xDrive30d.  Both variants are now fitted with new levels of ride comfort, superior functionality as well as the latest safety innovations by BMW through the Driving Assistant package that features Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning and City Collision Warning Mitigation.
“The Boss” seeks to continue its reign as the leader of the premium SAV segment with its award-winning sporty design, performance across multiple terrain conditions and advanced technological innovation courtesy of BMW EffircientDynamics and BMW ConnectedDrive.
The six-cylinder petrol variant xDrive35i now has an electrical Panorama glass roof (admit it you love the Panorama roofing in cars!) and the very best of entertainment with a rear-seat entertainment system comprising of two 9.2in coloured display monitors which can be operated by the BMW ConnectedDrive .
The xDrive30d variant has now transformed into a seven-seater with a third row of seats installed in the rear. The seats can be folded down to make way for luggage space when not needed but yet easily accessible for passengers when in function. This variant is also equipped with BMW Head-Up Display to allow drivers to process information 50 per cent faster while still keeping their attention on the road.
The new local assembled X5 is available nationwide with a pricetag of RM579,800 for the xDrive35i variant and RM539,800 for the xDrive30d variant (both prices are OTR, without insurance and BMW Service + Repair inclusive).
