BMW 4 Series and X5 engine and trim updates

BMW 4 Series coupe, X5 SUV and 3 Series Touring to all get new engines and trim updates

BMW 4 Series Coupe, X5 and 3 Series ranges will get a whole host of changes from November, says BMW.

New engines will be made available in the X5, while the 3 Series and 4 Series see the introduction of a new trim level and BMWs xDrive all-wheel-drive system.

The new flagship 313bhp BMW 435d Coupe will now be available with the intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive system as standard, while 420i and 430d Coupe buyers will be able to spec the XDrive system as an optional extra.

The BMW 3 Series also receives a new all-wheel drive model in the shape of a 335d xDrive Touring, which uses the same 313bhp six-cylinder twin-turbocharged diesel engine as the 435d Coupe.

Alongside the introduction of the XDrive system on the 4 Series Coupe, a new trim level has also been announced.

The BMW Modern Line joins the Sport and Luxury Line packages available on the 4 Series and features exclusive bespoke light-alloy wheels, aluminium satinated design elements, an Oyster colour shade for the seats and roof liner, a sports steering wheel and variable-colour ambient lighting.

BMW will also add a trio of engines to the X5 range, including the sDrive25d, which is powered by a 215bhp twin-turbocharged four-cylinder diesel. The X5 sDrive25d is the first X5 model to feature a four-cylinder engine as well as being rear-wheel drive only. Also new to the line-up is a 302bhp six-cylinder petrol engine fitted to the X5 xDrive35i and a 309bhp six-cylinder diesel engine to the xDrive40d.

There’ll also be an extended range of optional extras for the third-generation BMW X5 available from December. The Driving Assistant Plus system now also includes the Traffic Jam Assistant function, and the latest generation of the BMW Parking Assistant also makes its way onto the options list.

Finally, the BMW M5 super saloon and all versions of the M6 are now also available with exclusive special paint finishes.
