Really, you’re spoilt for choice. If you’re in the market for a true three-row SUV, the upcoming X7 is a better idea. Premium materials and high-quality assembly abound, making the X5 feel like a true top-tier luxury vehicle, a step above anything Cadillac, Acura or Infiniti seems able to muster but just on par with the newest stuff from Mercedes-Benz. The BMW X5 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots. The verdict: More spacious, luxurious and comfortable than ever, the latest BMW X5 continues to focus more on luxury than a sporty driving experience. Versus the competition: There are a dozen possibilities in this field, but it’s hard to match the latest 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, with its benchmark interior quality, stunning graphics displays and optional adaptive suspension. Its competitors look good, too; its closest rival is the all-new Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, which also received a complete (and very attractive) redo on a new platform, though it will arrive later in 2019 as a 2020 model.

Its other recent model redesigns have seen their sales drop precipitously much sooner than expected after their release. Leith BMW has been a Leith Automotive Group dealer since 1971. Recent Arrival! The BMW X5 M50d Final Edition is a refined recipe. The tweaks on the exterior are minimal, but we can expect more changes on the final variant. Also, the same power plants are carried over for the xDrive35i, xDrive35d, and xDrive50i trims. The BMW is capable of achieving highway speeds under electric power alone. You’ll be tempted to drive it hard, too, since this X5 launches with authority thanks to the instantly available electric torque, although the throttle is slightly jumpy. The powertrain isn’t the problem; the X5’s base engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder pumping out a very healthy 335 horsepower and 330 pounds-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic and featuring standard all-wheel drive. This isn’t the first time I’ve gone through an obstacle course in reverse. But the improvement to ride quality will be felt every time you drive the vehicle. We’re running out of time here, and I haven’t even had a chance to talk about the comfort features, media instruments, or even the storage.

The good looks really make it stand out from other cars on the road. In the world of luxury high-end SUVs, the competition is intense, with all kinds of new technology being introduced to the market along with looks that can’t be beat. But the world is a tough place, full of worthy competitors. Whether we’re taking out a drone, bringing our full Blackmagic kit along, or heading out for a sunset cruise with snacks, the X5 is a midsize SAV with a split tailgate that opens automatically at the top and bottom. Top speed (with perf. The standard Active Driving Assistant on the new BMW X5 xDrive45e includes Blind Spot Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Collision Warning, Frontal Collision Warning and Pedestrian Warning with City Collision Mitigation (which now also alerts the driver if cyclists are detected) Cross Traffic Alert Rear and Speed Limit Information. It can be used at speeds up to 130 mph and maintains the desired speed while taking the traffic situation into account and the selected distance to vehicles in front. If required, the system is able to brake, stop the car and pull away again automatically after being stationary for up to 30 seconds, meaning greater comfort in stop-start traffic.
The Driving Assistance Professional Package includes Evasion Aid, which now also reacts to pedestrians, and Front Cross Traffic Alert – which reduces the danger of a collision when maneuvering toward roads that are obstructed from the driver’s view. Other elements of the BMW Live Cockpit Professional are two USB-C ports, plus Bluetooth interfaces. Another component of the Driving Assistance Professional Package is the Lane Keeping Assistant with Active Side Collision Protection. Besides emitting visual warning signals and causing the steering wheel to vibrate, Active Side Collision Protection also uses active steering intervention to help avoid a collision. This system is designed to help the driver guide the vehicle back on to the correct path with an active turn of the steering wheel. An active steering system. The standard-fit autonomous emergency braking system performed well in tests of its functionality at the low speeds, typical of city driving, at which many whiplash injuries are caused. I also found BMW’s Comfort Access keyless entry to be completely buggy, often not locking or unlocking as it should have and eventually making me shut off the “smart access” system in favor of a more traditional setup. If the battery is not regularly charged, the petrol engine will end up moving the BMW X5 more frequently, whilst also charging the battery.
