The very first Spy Shots of the interior of the Borgward BX5 SUV, showing a large standing touch screen and various buttons and switches for automatic parking, stability control, electronic parking brake, hill-descent control, and a power-tailgate. Cup holders seem on the small side. In front of the gear lever sits a panel with two USB ports and a cigarette lighter. The Borgward BX5 will be available with three engines: a 1.8 turbo, a 1.4 turbo, and a 1.4 turbo hybrid.
The 1.8 turbo has 187hp and 280nm, the 1.4 turbo has 140hp and 240nm, and the 1.4 turbo hybrid has a massive 253hp and 435nm. The 1.8 will be mated to a six-speed automatic, thee 1.4 turbo and 1.4 turbo hybrid to a seven-speed DCT.
All very nice. Sadly, we are in a disagreement with Borgward about their business. See below:
