Let's start off by taking a look at safety features you'll find in the BMW X5…

BMW X5 xDrive35i Safety

The BMW X5 xDrive35i received five out of five stars for its overall front- and side-crash protection in government crash tests, and was awarded the top score from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Complete with passive safety features, including antilock brakes and advanced multistage airbags, it's fully equipped to keep you and your loved ones safe while on the road.

Active safety features include an optional forward collision mitigation system and lane departure warning. These systems use radar to sense when objects become too close, and provide a visual and audible alert to let the driver know to stop. If the driver fails to hit the brakes in time, the City Collision Mitigation system then intervenes to automatically stop the vehicle.

BMW X5 xDrive35i Technology

The cutting-edge technology of the 2017 BMW X5 xDrive35i ties into safety with its hands-free features, including an optional Wi-Fi hotspot. The enhanced USB and Bluetooth wireless option allows you to communicate without picking up your phone. A massive 10.2" high-resolution screen with 3D maps let you navigate New York City safely and efficiently.

The BMW X5 also offers a superior feature called iDrive, another way to allow the driver to focus on the road yet still control entertainment and communication. iDrive includes an on-board computer, touchpad controller, and eight programmable memory buttons, all situated to accommodate the height of the driver.

In addition, the BMW x5 xDrive35i offers blind spot monitoring, which uses tiny cameras to catch what you can't see in those tight situations that all New Yorkers are too familiar with.

Agility and athleticism define the feel of driving the BMW X5, and an optional Dynamic Damper Control Suspension automatically adjusts the suspension and comfort of driving.

If it's fuel efficiency you're after, the BMW X5 xDrive 35i averages an EPA-estimated 24 MPG on the highway and 18 MPG in the city.
