Most stylish and exhilarating sport utility

by Rtoman on Mon Apr 30 2018

This car serves all my wants and needs in an suv. Fun to drive, stylish, plenty of horsepower and great fuel economy. It's so light and responsive at the wheel. It handles like a sports car, but has the fuel efficiency of a Honda Civic. The electric battery comes in handy driving in town or stuck in bumper to bumper traffic. Very comfortable ride. My family love this car. I would recommend a test drive to really appreciate this car.

Oddball purchase, happy consumer

by time matters from Denver, CO on Mon May 01 2017

Bought largely in part to capture the tax credit prior to the trump bump. But impressed by the EV component . Six months in, still on the third tank of gas. That's over 3 hours saved from not having to stop for gas. Do you realize a 10 minute link to stop for gas per week is over 6 hours lost a year?. This is HUGE for this forty-something mid-manager with a family of three active kids. 6000 miles on less than 3 fill-ups (less than 60 gallons consumed / consistently over 100 mpg) - happy, happy consumer.

Our Take on the 2017 BMW X5 eDrive

The verdict:

New for 2016, the BMW X5 eDrive plug-in hybrid is a compelling choice for X5 shoppers, but those shoppers ought to drive the X5's competition, too.

Versus the competition:

The X5 plug-in hybrid boasts good performance and a handsome interior, but it faces strong competition, ranging from the opulent Volvo XC90 to several value-oriented Japanese alternatives.

Editor’s note: This review was written in March 2016 about the 2016 BMW X5 eDrive, but little of substance has changed for this year. To see what’s new for 2017, click here, or check out a side-by-side comparison of the two model years.

Officially named the X5 xDrive40e (a mouthful), the plug-in hybrid version of the X5 is BMW's first plug-in SUV. BMW badges it under its eDrive moniker, and I'll refer to it as the X5 eDrive from here out. The five-seat SUV has standard all-wheel drive and slots in price between the six-cylinder xDrive35i and V-8 xDrive50i. (The X5 also comes in diesel and high-performance M versions.) Compare the eDrive with other X5s here.
