Added standard features further pamper drivers, including BMW Comfort Access, Driving Assistant Professional, Parking Assistant Professional, and a choice of attractive exterior colors.

As BMW’s top-selling premium SAV in Malaysia, the muscular yet refined X5 continues that success in electrified style with the locally assembled xDrive50e M Sport, bringing BMW’s latest driving technologies to local roads with estimated pricing at RM 530,000 ($112,000).
