BMW's X5 is a master of all driving conditions, perfectly adept over rough terrain with its rugged build and strong engines, yet comfortable and refined during cruises through town. The model is an evolution of the 5 Series range and shares with its saloon and estate siblings striking sports styling and a host of cutting-edge technologies. With this model, BMW has succeeded in translating its motorsport-inspired approach into a capable off-roader that promises, and delivers, big things.
The X5's luxury is perfectly represented by its cabin, which has been crafted from a variety of fine materials chosen by you. Stitched leather envelops the gripping seats, while brushed aluminium, fine wood and Piano Black lacquer inlays can be specified throughout. These finishes add further elegance to the spacious interior, which boasts ample room for adult passengers as well as a generous boot.
The SUV's exterior further underlines its versatility, as hard-wearing details such as side steps, bumper protection and alloy wheels are all to be found. The front 'face' is as instantly recognisable as the BMW marque, and the brand's modern design approach is evident from front to back. A two-part grille is flanked by intense headlamps, and at the rear, squared tailpipes sit below a contoured bumper.
There's further choice when it comes to engines, and both petrol and diesel options are offered. Each benefits from BMW's TwinPower Turbo technology, which allows the V8 petrol to give a stunning 444bhp. The six-cylinder diesels are remarkably refined to reduce running costs, and the xDrive 30d SE is the most economical with combined fuel consumption of up to 47.9mpg. BMW's xDrive engines send power to all four wheels, and torque is delivered in fractions of a second to each axle for optimum grip.
