The base xDrive 30d’s 265hp means 0-100kph takes 7 seconds. The top speed is 227kph, and BMW claim 15.5km/L and 171g/km. The M50d gets a nice, round 400hp for 0-100kph in 5.4 seconds, 249kph, 14.3km/L and 185g/km. The sole gasoline option, meanwhile, sits somewhere in the middle, with 340hp and 0-100kph in 6.1 seconds. Not as economical, though – you’re looking at 11.5km/L and 198g/km.
It has drive modes – many of them – and we’re promised a measure of off-road ability.
All kinds of active safety systems and driver assistance technologies are available, and given the size/weight of this thing probably very necessary. Sales begin in April in the UK, with prices starting from £72,155 (P5 million).
