BMW X5 Performance Edition in Australia

October 26, 2011

BMW Australia has released the BMW X5 Performance Edition limited edition model. The pack simply offers a number of sporty styling tweaks for a touch of personalisation.

Based on the BMW X5 xDrive SUV, the BMW X5 Performance Edition features 21-litre Y-spoke alloy wheels, tucked away under a subtle new set of wheel arch extensions.

The BMW X5 Performance Edition provides the rest of the exterior with a bit more enthusiasm as well, with discreet yet tasteful front and rear bumper bar revisions with aggressive aerodynamic accents.

The new bumper bars match a set of bespoke side sill extensions, painted in body colour, while the traditional BMW twin kidney grilles at the front are in black for that stealthy look.

BMW is offering just 200 of the BMW X5 Performance Edition packs, with pricing starting from $99,900 for the BMW xDrive 3.0d Performance Edition. The pack will be available at dealerships this month.

If you’re in the market for an SUV and would like it to show off a bit of a performance attitude, the BMW X5 Performance Edition could be right down your alley.
