BMW X5 Overview

The third generation X5 traded some steering feel and sporty handling for a refined driving experience. The 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder, paired to a silky-smooth eight-speed automatic, delivers effortless acceleration. It averaged a pretty good 21 mpg overall in our tests. The interior is quiet and impeccably finished, but the optional third-row seat is tiny. BMW's iDrive control system has been improved, but remains complex, and the electronic shifter is unintuitive. Safety systems are comprehensive, but a rear camera is optional. A 4.4-liter V8, a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel, and a mighty 553-hp X5 M are available. BMW now offers rear-wheel-drive for sunny climes. Reliability of the redesign has been average.
