BMW Advanced Diesel with blueperformance Technology

The BMW X hugs the road with a fi rm,confi dent grasp. The sport seats, shown above, hug the driver just as intimately. An elevated seating position offers a commanding view of the road. And with the addition of sumptuous interior materials, the X truly becomes a sanctuary of unrivaled comfort and taste. Personalize your BMW X with upholstery available in a wide range of colors, including Oyster or Cinnamon Brown Nevada Leather, as well as fi ne wood interior trims. Elegance is met with equally impressive functionality, like the intelligently positioned storage compartments and an instrument panel arranged for optimized ergonomics.

For even more convenience, the innovative drive in-dash monitor offers a central viewing area where vehicle controls and navigational information can be monitored. This is command central and it’s yours – no matter where you’re headed.

BMW’s breed of diesel power is quiet and smoothrunning. Environmentally friendly, too, thanks to its use of ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel and BMW’s blue performance Tech neology. Using Diesel Exhaust Fluid and a diesel particulate filter, it turns the nitric oxides in the exhaust gas into environmentally compatible nitrogen and water vapor. As a result, this engine meets the emissions standards in all   states.

Satisfying power served up in three exciting flavors.

Engines that power innovation. Year after year, numerous BMW engines have garnered accolades for their output, refinement and high-revving ability. All are designed to deliver on BMW’s efficient ntdynamics philosophy: increased power with decreased fuel consumption and emissions. Choose between two gasoline-powered twin power Turbocharged engines, or opt for BMW’s Advanced Diesel with blue performance Technology. Whichever you select, you’ll enjoy the thrill of BMW performance while helping to protect the environment every day.

X drive all-wheel drive. BMW’s x drive intelligent all-wheeldrive system takes all-road traction to new heights. On smooth, dry roads, the BMW X has a rearwheel-drive feel. But hit a wet uphill curve, for instance, or wet leaves, water or snow, and even before wheel spin can occur, the system immediately recognizes any need for a change in power distribution. It can send more torque to the front axle to achieve stability. And should one wheel on an axle spin faster than the other, the brakes automatically engage, as needed, to bring all wheels back in sync. With drive, you enjoy optimum traction at all times.

Last word

Right up against the edge of the Arctic Circle degrees  minutes north, degrees  minutes east – winter temperatures hover well below  °F. Only late in the morning does the sun heave into view, and it’s not long before it disappears again under the gray horizon. A pretty desolate region. But suddenly, the dry powder explodes into the frosty air as a BMW X sweeps around the bend. The speed is breathtaking on the icy-smooth surface, a road whose contours can only be guessed at beneath the enveloping white. These are the winter tests in Lapland, in northern Sweden – the frozen extremity of Europe – where each BMW is sent to prove that it can function perfectly, even under extreme conditions. You can watch as the vehicles are put through their paces on the frozen expanses of Lake Hornavan. The X hurtles over the mirror-like surface, brakelights glowing; it fi shtails briefl y and is still. Then it executes a series of circles, slowing gradually to come to a fi nal stop at the farther edge of the ice. For Heinz Krusche, this kind of drama is all in a day’s work. An engineer by training, for the last  years he has been commuting miles from BMW headquarters in Munich to the white deserts around Arjeplog, itself a small town of only souls. This secluded outpost, though, does boast a modern airfield nearby, where large airliners come and go daily, and where December sees an influx of test drivers from all over the world. Their colleagues, meanwhile, have trekked north in trucks loaded with sophisticated electronic equipment, as the supermarket parking lot gradually fills with a whole auto show’s-worth of high-end vehicles. Models that have not.
