Starting November 2013, BMW’s X5 will receive new engines while its 4 Series Coupe and 3 Series Touring will get a new trim and the carmaker’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system. The X5 range will feature three new engines. The sDrive25d, particularly, will be powered by a 215bhp twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel. It is the first X5 to feature a four-cylinder engine and to be offered in rear-wheel drive only.
The X5 xDrive35i now comes with a 302bhp six-cylinder petrol engine while xDrive40d now features a 309bhp six-cylinder diesel engine. The third-generation BMW X5, which will be available this December, will feature more optional extras with the Driving Assistant Plus system that now includes the Traffic Jam Assistant function. Also coming as an option is the latest generation of the BMW Parking Assistant.
The 4 Series Coupe and the 3 Series Touring will feature a new trim level dubbed as BMW Modern Line, in addition to the Sport and Luxury Line packages. BMW Modern Line features exclusive bespoke light-alloy wheels and aluminum satinated design elements. It also features an Oyster color shade for the seats and roof liner, a sports steering wheel and variable-color ambient lighting.
Likewise, the intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive system will come as standard for the new flagship 313bhp BMW 435d Coupe and as optional for the 420i and 430d Coupe. The BMW 3 Series will also get a new all-wheel drive model in the persona of a 335d xDrive Touring, which is powered by the 313bhp six-cylinder twin-turbocharged diesel engine that runs the 435d Coupe.
