Nothing is quite as effective at reinvigorating the spirit as a well-deserved getaway. Packing up your family and hitting the road for destinations known and unknown allows you to recharge your batteries and refamiliarize yourself with the joy of driving. The 2018 BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle® is the ideal choice for the job, providing the versatility you need along your journey and the performance to help you enjoy every mile.
Spaciousness is no issue in the BMW X5, which offers ample headroom and legroom in both rows. If you have finicky passengers in the backseat, optional Comfort Rear Seats add reclining capabilities to increase legroom by up to 3 inches. To accommodate larger families, the X5 is available with an optional third row with climate control.
The BMW X5 is also one of the most expansive vehicles in the lineup in terms of cargo capacity. Behind the second row, the X5 offers up to 35.8 cubic feet of space for groceries, luggage and gear of all sorts. If you need flexibility, the X5 delivers with 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats that increase your storage capabilities. With the second row folded flat, storage capacity expands to an incredible 76.7 cubic feet.
Capability is a big part of what makes the BMW X5 a top-tier choice for the adventurous driver. If you prefer to get off the beaten path and explore the wilderness, the X5 offers more than 8 inches of ground clearance and is available with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, which makes it a proficient performer off-road. For the open road, the X5 is offered with four unique engine options and performance technologies like Dynamic Performance Control and Active Roll Stabilization to make every drive feel like an adventure unto itself.
Perhaps the most unique of the X5’s powertrain offerings is the 40e, which pairs an award-winning 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine with a lithium-ion powered eDrive motor and utilizes an eight-speed STEPTRONIC transmission to achieve 308 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. With the ability to choose between gasoline, all-electric or hybrid performance, the X5 xDrive40e achieves a maximum EPA-estimated 65 MPGe, meaning less time spent at the pump and more timing enjoying the thrill of driving.*
Getting away from it all from time to time is necessary for the mind, body and spirit. The BMW X5 transports you and your family to wherever excitement awaits in ample comfort and with the thrill of driving at heart, helping begin your revitalization from the moment you get behind the wheel.
