2020 BMW X5 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 BMW X5?

Redesigned for 2019, BMW’s X5 mid-size luxury SUV seats five or seven, depending on the seating configuration. It’s available with rear- or all-wheel drive and is powered by a standard 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine or a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 that makes 456 hp in 50i form and 523 hp in new M50i form. All engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and Land Rover Range Rover Sport

What’s New on the 2020 BMW X5?

Comfort Access is now standard. Besides more power, the new M50i trim level features 20-inch wheels, M Sport brakes, an M Sport differential, an adaptive M suspension, an M Sport steering wheel and exterior aerodynamic elements. 

What Features in the 2020 BMW X5 Are Most Important?

Standard features include a digital instrument panel, a 12.3-inch center touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity, navigation, a panoramic moonroof, a power liftgate and a 40/20/40-split second-row seat. Options include wireless device charging, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 360-degree camera system, night vision with pedestrian detection, remote start, an air suspension, first- and second-row heated seats, a heated steering wheel, a Bowers & Wilkins stereo and a rear-seat entertainment system. 

Should I Buy the 2020 BMW X5?

The X5 is a luxurious, comfortable and quick luxury SUV. However, some of its active safety systems can be a little too sensitive, and the optional gesture-based control system is gimmicky. It’s high time the X5 got Android Auto connectivity, too.
