2017 BMW X5
The 2017 BMW X5 is the gold standard for luxury SUVs, and it serves as a standard by which others are measured. Because of its off-road capability, only its on-road manners are superior, and because of the interior’s design and comfort, this SUV is a must-see for consumers. In terms of features, the BMW X5 delivers practically everything that a premium customer might want, but most of it is available as an option, making the SUV’s basic costs deceiving. For example, leather upholstery and a backup camera are still available as options on the majority of BMWs sold today.
The 2017 BMW X5 is offered in 4 trim levels:
- sDrive35i: 21 combined MPG
- xDrive35d: 25 combined MPG
- xDrive35i: 20 combined MPG
- xDrive50i: 17 combined MPG
Performance and Fuel Economy
The selection begins with the well-known company turbocharged inline-6, which produces 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, as the base model. The engine’s torque peaks between 1,200 and 5,000 rpm and are available in either a rear- or all-wheel-drive configuration, depending on your preference. According to BMW, the inline-6 accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just over six seconds, which is impressive for a vehicle that weighs 4,700 pounds—upgrading to the twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8 results in a powerful burst of Bavarian brawn delivered through the American South.
The twin-turbocharged V-8 produces 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque, and it accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. Even though the X5 xDrive50i features standard all-wheel drive, adjustable suspension, and 8-speed automatic transmission, the real speed isn’t as exhilarating as it sounds on paper: the car has enough sound deadening to muffle an arena and is equipped with enough sound deadening to muffle an arena. We’d describe it as “uncomplicated” and “relatively polite” speed.
Design, Comfort, and Quality
Because the 2017 X5 has many characteristics with other contemporary BMW vehicles in terms of appearance, feel, and functionality, this car will be extremely familiar to you, and that’s a good thing. High-grade materials abound, and everything appears to be of very high construction quality. Comfortable long-distance seating is provided by the basic chairs, which are well-shaped and well padded. The offered 16-way multi-contour seats are among the most comfortable seats available in any vehicle. While the second-row seats are likewise comfortable, there is significantly less legroom than in some of the company’s main rivals. The same may be said about the optional third row, which is too small even for little children.
Driving is more pleasurable because of the thoughtful placement of the vehicle’s key buttons and gauges, easy to see and operate. Getting accustomed to BMW’s iDrive control interface might be a challenge for newcomers. The menus are quickly learned thanks to the controller’s touchpad, which supports handwritten input. Behind the second row, there are 35.8 cubic feet of capacity, and with folding seats, there are 76.7 cubic feet of space, which is somewhat over the average for the class. The xDrive40e’s battery pack reduces its volume by more than half, from 72.5 cubic feet to 34.2 cubic feet. When tailgating, the X5’s two-part power liftgate, which includes a fold-down bottom component, is lauded for being both practical and easy.
The standard electric power steering system on all X5s is consistent with the rest of the BMW range. In Eco Pro and Comfort settings, the steering provides nothing in the way of input and dithers in the middle of the road. In Sport and Sport+ settings, the steering has a meaty feel that has grown typical among BMWs: stop the wheel in the middle of a corner, and there’s an instant buildup of return force that you must climb as you unwind the wheel back into place.
