A luxury crossover is expected to deliver an abundance of space and a comfortable driving experience. The X5 delivers all that and more. With 39.8 inches of headroom and 40.4 inches of legroom, you’ll have plenty of room when you’re behind the wheel. Your passengers can experience that comfort too with 38.3 inches of headroom and 36.6 inches of legroom. It additionally shines in terms of cargo space, with 35.8 cubic feet of room with the rear seats still up. Fold them down for an impressive 76.7 cubic feet of cargo space.

Luxury is essential for the X5, so prepare for a relaxing experience every time you drive. When it comes to seats, you can choose between SensaTec cloth or top-quality leather. The front seats feature 14-way power adjustment and 4-way lumbar support. The X5 can even remember your favorite position as it will automatically adjust to the driver’s prefered seat, steering wheel and outside mirror positioning.


Despite its luxurious and streamlined appearance, the X5 doesn’t sacrifice power for luxury. The base model alone features 300 horsepower with its advanced 6-cylinder 3-liter turbo engine. That’s just the beginning, however. The V8 twin turbo version offers an impressive 445 horsepower that few other crossovers can come close to.

The X5 also boasts excellent versatility. If you want the basic gasoline model, you’ve got it, but there are more options. The X5 features a diesel option that offers an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined fuel economy with a 30 mpg highway. There’s also a hybrid version that gets an EPA-estimated 56 mpg combined while still maintaining 308 horsepower.


BMW has always been a leader in technology, and the X5 is a perfect example. It comes with the iDrive 6.0 infotainment system, one of the most advanced systems on the market today. Some of its features include enhanced voice recognition software and even gesture recognition, so navigating the interface has never been easier.

The infotainment center also has an advanced navigation system with a 10.2 inch high resolution touchscreen. You’ll get access to 3-D maps and a 200 GB hard drive with 20 GB for audio files.
