The same goes for the X5 xDrive30d diesel variant. It’s also RM19,000 cheaper at RM539,800 when compared to the RM558,800 price tag of the CBU model. However, this diesel variant does get the flat-folding third row seating and the full-colour, sharp-resolution BMW Head-Up Display, which was previously offered only for the petrol model.
