Once you’ve read the reviews below, you’ll have a better idea which trim on the BMW X5 reigns as the best choice for you. Then, head over to our dealership to declare the car you like the winner!
BMW X5 sDrive40i
One way to differentiate among the various BMW X5 trims is through their levels of performance and fuel economy. A high-performance luxury Sports Activity Vehicle® (SAV®) like the X5 never holds back, but your needs on the road may differ from those of fellow X5 drivers.
The 3.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine provides 335 horsepower and 21 city/26 highway MPG, making it ideal for the commuter.
With a whole package to liven up your ride, the sDrive40i gives you a HiFi Sound System with 10 speakers and pre-wiring for SiriusXM® capability.
Select from 16 settings with your power front seating to ensure a comfortable ride every day and adjust the automatic climate control to your and your front-seat companion’s liking. It’s a win-win situation!
BMW X5 xDrive40i
Like the previous trim, the xDrive40i features the same powerful engine and achieves 20 city/26 highway MPG for similar fuel economy that works for your daily errands and appointments. The xDrive40i features AWD that contributes to the slight decrease in city MPG.
It’s a tie between the sDrive40i and the xDrive40i entertainment options that include anti-theft AM/FM stereo and wiring for an available CD player.
For an enjoyable ride, the SensaTec upholstery—found in both the sDrive40i and the xDrive40i trims—cradles you in comfort when the weather outside feels frightful.
BMW X5 xDrive50i
Will a little more power get your blood pumping? Rev up the 4.4L BMW TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine with 456 horsepower to cross the finish line. The fuel economy for this trim reaches 16 city/22 highway MPG.
As a busy commuter or active parent, you may want to drown out the chaos with an audio system that rocks. A Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System with 16 speakers may help do the trick—and so might a 1-year All Access subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.
Need help getting comfortable? Try the 20-way power front seat for a seat that whispers AHHH! Get used to the 4-zone climate control so everyone on board sighs with relief, too. With this trim also comes wireless charging, so your phone remains fresh—just like you—after a long drive.
BMW X5 M50i
The newest BMW X5 trim, the M50i, pushes ahead with a 523-horsepower output fed by the same engine as the xDrive50i.
Your entertainment system mirrors the xDrive50i, so you’ll get the same high quality and perks of a 1-year All Access subscription to SiriusXM® Satellite Radio for your listening pleasure.
Sit supported in the 20-way power Multi-contour front seats while adjusting your 4-zone climate controls for you and your passengers. With WiFi hotspot—standard in the xDrive50i and the M50i—you can master your own connectivity in your SAV.
