BMW X5 Performance Specifications

Next, we’ll cover some of the most important performance features and systems in the X5.

xDrive: This is BMW’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system which ensures that you have the best traction possible on all kinds of road surfaces. How, you may ask?It accomplishes this by distributing power to the front and rear axles.

Dynamic Performance Control: While the above AWD system is focused on distributing the torque between the front and rear axles, the Dynamic Performance Control System is focused on distributing it between the back two wheels. This is especially helpful when you’re rounding those difficult curves.
