The award wining BMW X5 has received a mild update for the new year in form of a subtle facelift, a few technical tweaks and new engines.

The new X5 will be available with two petrol and two diesel engines. As for the petrol models, you get a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 with 407 hp and 600 nm of torque, and the famous twin-charged inline six-cylinder with 306 hp and 400 nm of torque.

Then we have the diesel models which include a straight six-cylinder twin-turbo common-rail developing 306 hp and 600 nm of torque, and a weaker but more economical version of the same unit with 245 bhp 540 Nm.

All models are fitted with BMW xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive system as standard. Prices are high as usual, as the basic model starts at $46,675.

BMW X5 named the luxury SUV of 2010

In Off Road magazine Off-roader of the year poll, BMW X models have been quite sucessful as the X5, X6 and X3 and X1 win different awards.

The best however is the Luxury SUV of the year award which goes to BMW X5 due to its intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive, powerful and efficient engines and an interior which is both flexible and luxuriously equipped.

The recently introduced BMW ActiveHybrid X6 took the Eco Award for its innovative powertrain. This first full-hybrid model from the BMW brand uses its highly intelligent combination of internal combustion engine and electric drive to maximise both performance and efficiency.

Also in the crossover segment, BMW X1 took the first place beating hte X6 to the second place. X5′s smaller brother the BMW X3 too won the second place in the SUV segment. This title is not very impressive, but after all the X3 is a rubbish SUV which can;t go off-road and it’s also really ugly!

2010 BMW ActiveHybrid X6

BMW has introduced a new model from its ActiveHybrid series which is based on the X6, and it’s one of the finest examples of hybrid 4x4s ever built.

The hybrid powertrain of the X6 consists of a regular V8 engine and two electric motors which are fed by Li-Io batteries installed in the rear compartment. So it manages to be powerful and economical at the same time. Considering its capabilities, this car delivers great values.

The main source of power is a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 300 kW/407 hp, it is mated to two electric motors developing 67 kW/91 hp and, respectively, 63 kW/86 hp, so the system chucks out a combined power of 357 kW/485 hp and peak torque of 780 Newton-metres/575 lb-ft. This make the BMW ActiveHybrid X6 the most powerful hybrid vehicle in the world.

Over and above the electric motors, the high-performance battery also supplies electrical energy to the power-consuming items linked to the 12-volt on-board network. The BMW ActiveHybrid X6 is equipped with electromechanical power steering and an electrical climate compressor both remaining fully functional also when the combustion engine is switched off and enhancing the overall efficiency of the vehicle to an even higher standard through their on-demand consumption and uptake of energy.

As for the performance and fuel economy, the X6 AH delivers great numbers for both! It takes the car only 5.6 seconds to reach 100km/h from stand still, while the average fuel consumption is fairly low at 9.9 litres/100 km (equivalent to 28.5 mpg imp), the CO2 emission rating is 231 grams/kilometre.
