Just a few weeks after the reveal of the facelifted 2011 BMW X5, a new M Sports Package for the German luxury SUV has been announced. The kit includes both visual upgrades to the interior and body, as well as performance tuning of its chassis.
The exterior features new color-coded bumpers with integrated fog lights, extended wheel arches housing unique 19 and 20 inch wheel sets plus new side moldings.
The M Sports package also includes special tailpipes for the exhaust system. On the six-cylinder variants, they share the trapezoidal shape standard on the BMW X5 xDrive50i. Other goodies include an exclusive Carbon Black metallic paint scheme and roof rails in a chrome satin-finish.
Inside, the SUV gets full leather accessories with M labeling, sports seats, polished aluminum trim and an M steering wheel. Handling has been enhanced thanks to modifications to the adaptive drive and active steering systems, and individual selection of specific tires that differ between the front and rear axles.
Both the new 2011 BMW X5 and M Sport Package will be unveiled for the first time at next week’s 2010 Geneva Motor Show before going on sale this spring.
