2017 BMW X5 Review
If you’re looking for a luxury midsize SUV with style, class, and power, look no further than the 2017 BMW X5. With a spacious interior, advanced technology, and plenty of powerful engine options, you’ll wonder why you didn’t find the X5 sooner.
Our team at BMW of Annapolis wanted to give drivers in Annapolis, Highland Beach, and Hillsmere Shores the inside scoop on the 2017 X5. We’ll fill you in on the interior specs, technology features, and five different engine options you’ll only find in a BMW.
Let’s get started by checking out the inside of the X5.
BMW X5 Interior
When you opt for a luxury vehicle, you’ll want to feel it on the inside and outside. Inside the 2017 X5, you won’t be disappointed. The cabin boasts high-quality materials like leather and wood trims, keeping you feeling classy and sophisticated on your daily drives.
Perhaps you’re using your BMW X5 as a family vehicle and need a little more room for carpools. The X5 will give you plenty of options for space. You’ll find standard seating for five, with an optional third row that will bump you up to seven passengers.
In terms of cargo space, the X5 offers an impressive 35.8 cubic feet behind the second row and 76.7 cubic feet with the second row folded. That’s plenty of room for luggage, sports gear, and even to help a neighbor with moving.
Technology in the X5
A luxury SUV means state-of-the-art technology that comes standard; in the case of the X5, you’ll find this in the iDrive infotainment system. A 10.2-inch display will seamlessly show you the navigation, media, and communication features while you’re driving.
The iDrive system is controlled by a touchpad controller-so you can literally write out letters and numbers with your fingertip. This feature makes the iDrive system a little easier to navigate with inputting items, such as addresses and contacts.
The 2017 X5 also comes with a Wi-Fi hotspot, so you can stay connected at all times. Plus, the wireless charging feature will ease your battery life worries while on longer drives.
Apple CarPlay™ is also available to connect your iPhone apps with the iDrive infotainment system.
2017 BMW X5 Specs
As we’ve mentioned, the X5 offers five different engine options-turbocharged options, we might add. The standard engine is a 3.0L six-cylinder that produces 300 horsepower, which isn’t bad at all for a base model.
The X5 also doesn’t disappoint in terms of fuel efficiency. You’ll get an EPA-estimated 18/25 MPG city/highway in the base model; opt for the diesel-powered engine, and you’ll be happy with an EPA-estimated 23/29 MPG city/highway.
