BMW has entrenched itself a leader in the world of design, engineering and ingenuity. These ideals, these facets that have been so key to making BMW the first name in luxury and performance, are the guiding principles behind the all-new BMW X5. The latest BMW Sports Activity Vehicle® builds upon a formula set forth 20 years ago and improves it in every conceivable way, resulting in a versatile, dynamic vehicle perfect for those with elevated tastes.
The new BMW X5 cuts an impressive, emotional figure that is simultaneously unique yet decidedly that of a BMW. With 2.6 inches of additional width, a 1-inch increase in height and a wheelbase that is 1.6 inches longer than its predecessor, the latest X5 is more muscular in its stance and more spacious on the inside. Perhaps its most defining characteristic, however, is the X5’s one-piece active kidney grille, which calls attention to its strong proportions so well and signals a new era of advancement for the brand. Flanked by Adaptive LED twin headlights and presided over by a sculpted hood that helps inform its robust character, the face of the new BMW X5 is not one that is easily missed or forgotten.
Convenience and ease-of-use are at the heart of the new X5. For a more connected and intuitive driver experience, the BMW X5 boasts cutting-edge features like Live Cockpit Professional, which includes dual 12.3-inch screens in the Digital Instrument Cluster and Center Display for a fully customizable experience. The seventh generation of the iDrive Operating System makes navigation, entertainment and connectivity simpler, and standard Active Driver Assistant adds to a sense of confidence with technologies like Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Blind Spot Detection and Lane Departure Warning.
Versatility is given the highest consideration in the BMW X5, making it the ideal choice for any type of lifestyle. For the weekend adventurer, the X5 is available with a factory-installed trailer hitch. For drivers with big families and friend groups, an available third row of seating ensures that nobody gets left behind on your getaways. With up to 72.3 cubic feet of cargo space, the X5 makes packing up and loading in easier whether it’s your weekly groceries or all of your camping gear.
When it comes to all of the qualities that are associated with BMW vehicles, the new X5 delivers in abundance. The latest SAV® from the maker of the Ultimate Driving Machine® demonstrates that no drive, no matter how great or small, ever has to be mundane.
