BMW Philippines Launches All-New 2019 X5: More Athletic, More Tech, More Space (w/ Photos, Specs)


SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp., the official importer and distributor of BMW in the Philippines, continues the success story of the BMW X5 as it makes the newest generation available to the local market. The fourth iteration of the BMW X5 embodies this model’s typical characteristics: versatility, sovereignty, and luxury.

The all-new X5 retains the hallmark proportions of BMW’s landmark Sport Activity Vehicle or SAV, but adds more robustness, poise, and authority with its purposely pared-back design.


Available only in the xLine variant, the 2019 X5 features an enlarged one-piece BMW kidney grille, finished in satin aluminum and complemented by the distinctive dual LED headlights. The same finish on the grille is also found on the underguard, roof fails, and side window surrounds as well. The powerful shoulders remain, but it’s been given more precision here. At each corner are 20-inch light alloy wheels with a V-spoke design.

Inside, the all-new BMW X5 features a cleanly structured cabin that gives off a feeling of space. The seating position has been raised while the new-design instrument cluster, Control Display, and cutting-edge control concept optimize the driver’s ability to maintain control at all times.


Space has grown for both front and rear occupants while carefully selected materials, including the new Vernasca Leather bring a more exclusive ambiance. Other standard features include the comfort seats, cooled/heated cupholders, ambient lighting, and the Harman Kardon sound system.

For added luggage versatility, the luggage space has grown, accommodating 650 liters with the rear seats up and 1,860 liters with the rear seats down. Aside from folding in a 40/20/40 split, it has a two-section tailgate for ease of loading.


The 2019 X5 also gets the latest BMW Operating System 7.0 as well as the BMW Live Cockpit Professional system that comprises an all-digital instrument cluster and high-definition control display, both measuring 12.3 inches. Multi-modal interaction allows the driver to use the steering wheel buttons, iDrive Controller, the touchscreen display, voice control or BMW gesture control, as they prefer.

The sole variant on offer is the X5 xDrive30d xLine and with that, under the hood is a 265 horsepower, 620 Nm of torque inline-6 engine that sprints to 100 km/h in just 6.5 seconds. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic while power is distributed to all four wheels using the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system.


Competing in a market segment that’s been growing 20 percent for over 30 years now, BMW Philippines is pulling out all the stops by pricing the X5 at a very competitive P 5,990,000. In addition, it comes with the segment’s longest warranty: 5 years / 200,000 kilometers.
