2020 BMW X5 Review
Power-packed drives are ahead. Thanks to the 2020 BMW X5, you’ll be able to enjoy the roads with either a V6 or V8 engine, both of which deliver exceptional power to Jackson, Clinton, and Ridgeland motorists.
Here at BMW of Jackson, we’ve put together this 2020 BMW X5 review to give you a closer look at this unique SUV. From the power under the hood to the interior amenities and the safety features, the X5 knows how to deliver a thrilling daily drive.
X5 Performance Specs
There’s plenty of power under the hood of the BMW X5, with the inline V6 available in the sDrive40i and xDrive40i, while the V8 is available in the xDrive50i. Let’s break down these engines and take a closer look at exactly what they have to offer.
The V6 engine is a 3.0L producing up to 335 horsepower. The engine is mated to an 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission with multiple shift modes and paddle shifters, which allow you to take control of shifts from the steering wheel. The available xDrive, the BMW all-wheel-drive system, offers a better grip on the roads in wet conditions. Even when it’s dry, it helps provide better cornering and handling.
With the xDrive50i, you’ll be the owner of a 4.4L V8 engine that delivers 456 horsepower. This engine combines a pair of turbochargers with variable valve control and high-precision direct injection. With this technology, you’ll get plenty of power out of this V8, but it still operates as a fuel-efficient engine.
BMW X5 Cabin Comforts
Inside the cabin of the BMW X5, you’ll have access to a number of features designed to make your life easier. The first thing you may notice is the 3-spoke leather-wrapped multi-function sport steering wheel. This wheel may pilot the vehicle, but it also provides controls for the audio system, cruise control, and Bluetooth® wireless communication.
The 16-way power front sport seats offer power side bolsters and 4-way lumbar support and a memory system for the driver’s seat and steering wheel. Even if you turn the X5 over to someone else for the day, the next time you get in, it’ll feel like you never left.
Need room for all your cargo? You’ll have it, with 72.3 cubic feet of space to play around with. The standard power split tailgate makes packing and unpacking a breeze.
Safety Features Protecting You and Yours
BMW’s Active Protection System comes standard in the X5. Imminent accidents can be detected by this system. Seatbelts will be automatically pretensioned, the windows and the moonroof will close, and post-crash braking will be activated to keep you safe.
The Active Driving Assistant technology includes Frontal Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, and Active Blind Spot Detection. These safety features are constantly working to protect you and can let you know when you’re drifting from the lane you’re in or let you know if it’s safe to change lanes.
