Having established the SAV segment in 1999, the BMW X5 continues to be the most successful BMW X model and the best-selling SAV worldwide. The All-New BMW X5 adds another chapter to this success story.
Harald Hoelzl, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, As the pioneer of the BMW X family, the BMW X5 delivered more than 2.2 million units across its three model generations, making it the best-selling SAV worldwide. This worldwide success is also reflected here in Malaysia as the BMW X5 is a key contributor to BMW Group Malaysia’s performance year on year. On the other hand, its sportier sibling, the BMW X2 has delivered close to 100 units since its introduction last April.”
