Advantages: Among the attributes that have set the BMW X5 apart in the automotive landscape has been its unique blend of sporty, elegant exterior design and luxurious, flexible interior ambience.

Those attributes have been enhanced with an entirely new design, inside and out. For customers looking to add an additional element of individuality to their new X5, the Luxury Line, xLine or M Sport will be available, as will two Interior Design Packages Ivory White and Mocha.

The BMW X5s xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive can be complemented by Dynamic Performance Control as part of the optional Dynamic Handling Package.

The Dynamic Handling Package also includes Active Roll Stabilization providing an additional edge to the X5s sporty handling attributes as well as Dynamic Damper Control and a rear-axle air suspension.

Adaptive M suspension, available as part of M Sport, also includes Dynamic Damper Control and rear air suspension with more sports-oriented suspension tuning.



Disadvantages: Lacks the sophistication of a Range Rover.

The optional dynamic handling package, though worth every penny, can be expensive.



Summary: Great on- and off-road abilities plus 7 seats make this the ideal 4x4 for the fashion conscious buyer.

Well combines on-road performance and luxury setting a benchmark for what buyers in this class coule be looking at.

The car is everything I hoped for. I can't wait for the snow this winter (can't believe I said that!)?

02-November-2012 New BMW X5 Deals (xDrive30d SE 5d Auto [7 Seat])
Smooth, quite, powerful and high tech.

05-December-2010 New BMW X5 Deals (xDrive40d M Sport 5d Auto [7 Seat])
Fantastic motor, had an Audi Q7 before this one, but the X5 is better in all departments; it's a great drive, smooth and responsive!

Good people carrying saloon but manual control of gears is ineeffective in extreme conditions (eg snow and ice). The car thinks it knows best and will change down to 2nd gear below a particular speed, even though the engine is generating too much torque for the conditions. Unfortunately BMW haven't learnt as much as they should have done from their ownership of Land Rover.
New BMW X5 Review:
The new BMW X5 will offer a new model and a first for the original Sports Activity Vehicle, the X5 sDrive35i, which marks the first time that an X5 model has been offered with rear-wheel drive.

It, along with the X5 xDrive35i, will be powered by BMWs multi-award winning 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo inline-six.

The V8-powered X5 xDrive50i will use BMWs latest 4.4-litre TwinPower Turbo V8. Offering improvements in horsepower, torque and efficiency, these models will arrive in US showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Based on its popularity over the last several years, a new BMW Advanced Diesel model will join the line-up a few months later.

The second-generation X5 xDrive35d features a new 3.0-litre TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder diesel engine and provides the abundant torque for which BMW Advanced diesels have become renowned while offering significant improvements in efficiency over its predecessor.

All models will be equipped with BMWs latest 8-speed automatic transmission. As was true of its predecessors, the all-new BMW X5 will be produced exclusively at BMWs production facility in Spartanburg, SC.
