Sporty and Practical SUV

The diesel version of the BMW X5 is phenomenal - the low end torque propels this like a rocket off the line. I recently drove 80+mph on highway and got 32 mpg. Got the x-line which has great black out wheels. The interior is like a spaceship with the adjustable accent lighting and very large high def navigation screen that is great when split with other functions like satellite radio etc. I-Drive controls are easy to master and very logical and responsive. This SUV is SUPER SOLID transport in a very functional and luxurious ride. I love this SWEET RIDE!

I love this car. It is awesome. Nice acceleration, smooth ride ....easy to not realize how fast you're going . This is my first BMW - previously had Lexux GX 460. This is more fun to drive and better gas mileage. Lots of room for a big day of shopping but not big and boxy.. Bought the car at Sun Motors in Harriburg. Friendly staff and no pressure from sales staff. The SUV sells itself

Was feeling great guilt driving my 2013 Yukon Denali, even after gas prices dropped below $2.00. 90-% of the time I was driving alone, watching the engine gulp, only averaging 15-MPG. Opted for an X5 Diesel, which is an absolute blast to drive as well as achieving some awesome fuel economy. No more guilt here. It's like having a sports car with an SUV body. great ride and interior comfort, I often find my wife trying to get behind the wheel because she enjoys the experience equally to me. I highly recommend BMW's 3-liter diesel, power and economy.

I owned BMX 5 of 2001, 2006 and 2013. 2015 BMW X5 i the best. Great acceleration and handling (it handles like 3 series sport sedan). It absorbs pot holes on the road, all controls are convenient. Lot's of room. The steering wheel is light, first time for me. I was a bit scared by that, but there is no difference in handling comparing to previous models. I get used to it next day. The car does cost extra money comparing to 2013 model, but you get Navi, leather, backup camera, sensors, 250 pounds lighter car and other features.

spend more time at the dealer getting repairs than I do driving my x5, really disappointed as the interior is great and when running it is a smooth ride. Drive less than 30 miles a day and tires always dirty from break dust, when cold they squeal loudly, does not leave the feeling of a luxury car. Would not purchase an x5 again, absolutely love my BMW 3 series sedan

As a previous Cayenne owner, our standards were high when we test drove the BMW X5. The BMW is so comfortable and still performs like a sports car. The technology is all there, and the "Genius Tech", Pam, explained it all to us to take full advantage of the car. She is great. New Century BMW was easy to work with, and our sales rep, Hamlet, is excellent. We are so glad we purchased the X5; we love this car!

Absolutley blistering performance and excellent styling. You want a sports car but need SUV space and road presence. It's smooth when cruising on long journeys and will deliver great results at any traffic light Grand Prix. Lots of tech inside and out, coupled with German reliability. Even the stock exhaust will amaze you!

Never owned a BMW before. Pretty sweet ride. Lots of interior toys and haven't figured them all out yet. Poor design on cup holders as tall cups fall over. I got sticker shock at the cost of the extended service warranty. Regardless this car and i will have a long relationship.

This car drives like a sports car. driving it alone would not hint to it being an suv. I wouldnt ever go offroading in it or use it like an suv but it proves itself in other places like performance and style. The car is insanely fun to drive and very fast.
