BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce the new X5 generation in Australia this November, where the cheapest model will set you back for 99,990 AUD.

Good news for those of you living in Australia who were looking forward for the new BMW X5 generation as the SAV is getting ready to storm dealerships across the country, as the carmaker has officially announced.

However, the starting price of the model will increase by 7,655 AUD, to a total of 99,990 AUD, before on-road costs.

The 2014 BMW X5 xDrive30d is coming with an upgraded 3.0 liter six-cylinder turbo diesel engine under its hood, which is producing a total output of 190 kW and 560 Nm of torque, 10 kW and 20 Nm of torque more than before. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is done in 6.9 seconds. The X5 xDrive50i will also be available from 133,900 AUD, and this will get a 4.4 liter V8 engine under its hood, which is good for 330 kW and 650 Nm of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h acceleration of 5.0 seconds.
