2018 BMW X5 Interior Review

Nothing is more commanding on the road than an SUV. With its generous interior space and assertive presence, an SUV may be just what you need to navigate the streets of Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens, NY. The SUV market is packed full of incredible models, but the BMW X5 tends to stand out among the rest.

The X5 includes a wide variety of features that all kinds of drivers will come to enjoy. However, it truly shines when it comes to the interior. After all, a luxurious, amenity-filled interior is what most SUV drivers are looking for. Learn more about the inside of this incredible luxury SUV and discover if it’s what you’re looking for in our comprehensive BMW X5 interior review!


The best way to understand the interior of any vehicle is to take a look at the sheer size and dimensions. Up to eight people can fit comfortably inside the X5 with the optional third row, and they’ll have plenty of room no matter where they’re sitting. Up front, you can enjoy 40.5 inches of headroom with 40.4 inches of legroom. Rear passengers are similarly comfortable with 38.8 inches of headroom and 36.6 inches of legroom.

If you’re more interested in carrying cargo, the BMW X5 features a generous amount of cargo space even if you don’t fold the rear seats down. Behind the back row, you’ll find 35.8 cubic feet of space. If that’s not enough, don’t hesitate to fold the back row of seats down into the floor. Doing so will reveal the incredible maximum 76.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity.


The luxurious BMW X5 interior was designed with passenger comfort in mind. SensaTec upholstery comes standard, but you can always upgrade to high-quality leather for that extra sophisticated touch. If you’re really looking to treat your rear passengers, be sure to opt for the comfort rear seats which not only recline, but add up to three inches of extra legroom.

Comfort seats aren’t unique to your back passengers, however, as the driver and front passenger also have quite a few appealing options available. With the Luxury Seating Package, you can get ergonomically friendly seats that will keep you comfortable for even the longest of drives. They’re also heated and ventilated, so you can be sure you’ll always be at your optimum comfort level.


No modern SUV interior would be complete without some of the latest technology, and the X5 goes out of its way to impress in that regard. This car features the state-of-the-art iDrive 6.0 infotainment system-an incredibly intuitive interface with voice recognition technology that allows you to operate it without ever taking your hands off the wheel.

A multitude of other features are present inside this luxury SUV, but one of the most impressive is the Head-up Display. This feature displays important information directly on your windshield within your line of sight without blocking the road. With this, you can view turn-by-turn directions, speed, current speed limit, collision warnings, and more without having to take your eyes off the road.
