As mentioned above, the Borgward BX5 specs sheet shows two engine options - a 1.4-litre 4-cylinder unit putting out 150 PS at 5,500 rpm and 250 Nm from 1,750 to 4,000 rpm. Next up is a 2.0-litre 4-pot mill producing 224 PS of power at 5,500 rpm along with a peak torque of 300 Nm at 1,500 to 4,500 rpm.

Both the powerplants are paired to a 6-speed automatic gearbox (a standard option). While the smaller 1.4-litre mill is offered with a front-wheel drivetrain, the 2.0-litre is available as all-wheel-drive option.

On the other hand, the 2.0-litre mill rests under 2.0T, 2.0T (CRS), and 2.0T (TS) models. The three here tallies the equipment list of the 1.4T and 1.4T (TS). However, it comes with a few improvements over the former like a remotely operated powered tailgate, front parking sensors, dual-zone air-con system with rear vents, and power-folding side mirror with puddle lamps.
