The all-new 2019 BMW X5’s sensational performance and high-tech cabin make it one of the luxury midsize SUV in the market.

Is the new BMW X5 a Good SUV?

Well, that’s one of the most interesting questions people get asked about. All right, the answer is simple. Yes, the BMW X5 is an exceptional SUV. Its vigorous engines and composed handling feel make it stand out from the crowd. Inside, buyers get comfy and high-tech features which add to the feel of this exceptional SUV. There is no denying the fact that some of the rivals are more stylish in terms of designing, but where would you place the terrific combination of performance and opulence delivered by this big boy? Yes, that’s what a very few rivals come up with. Eager to know more about this bad boy? Without further ado, let’s get on with this:

Interior of BMW X5

The X5 gets five seats in its base trim. Be that as it may, an optional third row extends seating capacity to seven. The front-row seats are commodious and comfortable, and they offer terrific forward visibility to the driver. The rear seats are adult-friendly as well, though the third row is too small for most adults. Well, the truth hurts. That’s how it goes. The X5 comes with a couple of sets of LATCH connectors for fitting car seats.

If we spend a moment just taking into account the design and build quality, the X5 hits the nail on the head too. Still and all, its dull, monotone colour schemes keep it slightly below the rivals of this class. This BMW SUV has good enough cargo space for the class, with just under 34 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. That’s decent space for a weekend’s worth of luggage for the family, isn’t it? If we turn the rear seats under, we have more than 72 cubic feet of extra space.

If we talk about the standard features inside the X5, we get a panoramic moonroof and the iDrive infotainment system coupled with a 12.3-inch touch screen, navigation, a 10-speaker hi-fi audio system, three USB ports, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay. And we will get some optional features comprising wireless device charging, quad-zone automatic climate control, and an upgraded infotainment system coupled with a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Wi-Fi hot spot, and satellite radio.

The iDrive infotainment system works just fantastically. There are a bunch of ways to fine-tune the settings, and the controls are super easy to locate and reach. The touch screen reacts quickly to all the inputs. Graphics are sharp, making it easy to get to the on-screen icons easily. So, it’s a big exquisite package.

The powerful engine is what BMW is known for

Whether the motorists go for the X5’s 3.0-litre diesel engine, 335-horsepower inline-six base engine or pick out the 456-horsepower V8, they’ll be getting a turbocharged engine with lots of power for most driving circumstances. Beyond the shadow of a doubt, the V8 feels more vigorous, but it doesn’t mean that we could underestimate the power of the base engine. The X5 wins some of the best fuel economy ratings among non-hybrids in the class, earning 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. For comparison, the all-wheel-drive version of the Mercedes-Benz GLE gets just 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, while the AWD Volvo XC90 gets 20/27 mpg city/highway. Though it can’t match the Porsche Cayenne for handling, the X5 is fun to drive and doesn’t feel overmatched on winding roads. Standard all-wheel drive provides great road grip. This BMW also provides a controlled driving experience.

Your safety is always on priority

Standard driver assistance features comprise adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert, and blind spot monitoring. A few of these features are part of BMW’s Active Driving Assistant.

Drivers can get their hands on some optional features as well such as BMW’s Active Protection System, night vision, a head-up display, a surround-view camera, Evasion Assistant and parallel, and perpendicular park assist. Everything’s just right in the blockhole. Bang on.
