If you're looking for your next SUV to have room for the whole family, state-of-the-art technology, and plenty of power, look no further than the 2017 BMW X5. With plenty of options from the inside out, drivers in Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx will find this SUV to accommodate any city or suburb lifestyle.

Our team at BMW of Manhattan has put together this review for you to get a look at all of the features you'll find in the 2017 BMW X5. Check out what you can expect when you get behind the wheel of this luxury SUV. 

Let's check out the inside of the X5 to get started…

The BMW X5 Inside Scoop

When shopping for a luxury SUV, you don't want anything less than high-quality interior. Fortunately, you won't be disappointed with the BMW X5. The cabin boasts a classy look and feel, with available leather and wood-trim materials.

Comfort is not to be shorted, however. The 14-way power adjustable driver and passenger seats come standard with heating options and driver memory functions. So, you can adjust your position and temperature one time, and your BMW X5 will store your preferences for the next time you take a cruise.

Speaking of comfort, the BMW X5 offers plenty of space for all passengers. With standard seating for five, riders of all sizes will fit quite comfortably in this SUV. Plus, with an optional third row to seat two extra people, you'll be able to fit everyone in for car-pooling to the local soccer and baseball games.

Speaking of games, you'll need some cargo space to fit your players' equipment. With the BMW X5, that won't ever be a problem thanks to the 35.8 cubic feet available behind the second row, and a massive 76.7 cubic feet when the seats are folded. You'll have room for everything from gear to luggage, bikes to groceries.

State-of-the-Art BMW X5 Technology & Safety Features

 A luxury SUV should be well-equipped with advanced technology features. The 2017 BMW X5 has all of the bells and whistles when it comes to technology, including entertainment and safety features.

Enjoy your favorite music and smartphone apps with the BMW X5's infotainment system, which includes a standard 10.2-inch touchscreen.  Available Apple CarPlay® and a Wi-Fi hotspot make accessing your entertainment easier than ever.

Navigation also comes standard with the BMW X5 infotainment system, so you'll never have to worry about using your phone as a GPS again. You can get to your destinations safely with this hands-free, voice-activated system.

Since safety is crucial, the advanced technology features extend to keeping you and your passengers as safe as possible in the BMW X5.

Standard front and rear parking sensors will help get your mid-size SUV in the tightest city parking spots without hitting anything (or anyone!) in the process. In addition, BMW's Parking Assistant will get you into those parallel parking spots with ease. By simply utilizing the accelerator and brake, your vehicle will literally guide itself into a parking spot.

An available 360-degree camera, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Lane Departure Warning will also be your driving assistants for those times when you need some extra guidance. You never know when a New Yorker might step out into the street without looking, and your car will sense this even before you see it.

Engine Options & Performance in the X5

The performance of the BMW X5 is certainly something to write home about. With five different trim levels, you'll have plenty of engine options to get the most out of your vehicle's performance. These BMW X5 trim levels and options include:

  • BMW X5 sDrive35i/xDrive35i: This base trim level comes standard with a 3.0L, six-cylinder engine and produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque.
  • BMW X5 xDrive35d: The next level up, the xDrive35d trim comes with a 3.0L turbodiesel six-cylinder engine.
  • BMW X5 xDrive40e: You'll get to where you want to go in no time with this trim level's turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine.
  • BMW X5 xDrive50i: For the quickest acceleration, go with the xDrive50i trim with a standard twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine. Producing 445 horsepower and 480 lb-ft of torque, this powerhouse will get you from 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.9 seconds.
  • BMW M: The highest trim of the line, the M model also comes with a twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine.

With all of these engine options, of course you'll want to know a little more about the MPG-rating of the BMW X5. At an EPA-estimated 23/29 MPG city/highway, the X5 will keep you on the go for a while before having to make a pit stop on longer trips.

With the X5's athletic handling, you won't mind those longer drives. Whip around the city easily or cruise down to the beach in your sporty SUV. You can even opt for the Dynamic Performance Control to adjust the suspension settings on your vehicle, setting you up for the most comfortable, agile drive. 

If you need to bring something bigger along-say, a boat or trailer-the X5 can tow up to an extremely impressive 6,000 pounds when properly equipped.
