BMW has launched a new mid-spec trim for the X5 SUV in India. The SportX Plus retails from Rs 77.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) and is available with both petrol and diesel engines. 

Here’s where it slots in the lineup:

Variant

Price (ex-showroom)

xDrive30d SportX 

Rs 76.50 lakh

xDrive40i SportX Plus

Rs 77.90 lakh

xDrive30d SportX Plus 

Rs 79.50 lakh 

xDrive30d xLine

Rs 86.90 lakh

xDrive40i M Sport

Rs 88 lakh

The SportX Plus will sell at a premium of Rs 3 lakh over the base SportX diesel. Also, the SportX Plus is now the most affordable petrol-powered X5 you can buy as it undercuts the M Sport by Rs 10 lakh.

 

So what comes with the SportX Plus? For starters, there are LED headlights and taillights, LED fog lamps, 19-inch alloy wheels, and roof rails finished in aluminum. Inside, you’re treated to sports seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and electrically adjustable seats with memory function.

 

Features include a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system and digital driver display, a head-up display, four-zone climate control, six-colour ambient lighting, a panoramic sunroof, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and electrically operated sunblinds. Safety kit includes a rear view camera with parking and reverse assist, six airbags, electric parking brake with auto hold, and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). 

Considering it is a mid-spec trim, the SportX Plus misses out on things like the sportier-looking M Sport exterior pack, BMW’s Laserlight headlight technology, a Harman Kardon sound system, a 360-degree camera, and bigger 20-inch alloy wheels. 

Under the hood, the SportX Plus gets two 3-litre engine options: xDrive40i petrol and xDrive30d diesel. The former makes 340PS and 450Nm, while the latter produces 265PS and 620Nm. Both engines, when paired with an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission and an all-wheel drivetrain, push the X5 from  0-100kmph in 5.5 seconds (petrol) and 6.5 seconds (diesel). 

In India, the BMW X5 continues to rival the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the Volvo XC90.
