Stealth Look for powerful SUV

by Dan on May 24, 2018

This SUV is very powerful yet looks like a "normal" SUV. While the M counterparts of regular BMWs usually look much more menacing, the X5M doesn't look much more powerful than the M sport version. However, once you get in the driver seat, it is a different animal. The interior is very luxurious and elegant. It handles very well for a 6000 lb SUV and all that power is available with one touch of a button (M1 and M2 settings). Very enjoyable to drive. The only gripe I have is the frequent trips to the gas station.

X5M - Spacious Altrenative

by EuroDok from Charlotte, NC on February 17, 2016

As a replacement for my 2010 X6M, this 2016 X5M has met all of my needs. It provides more seating from 4 to 5 people and increased rear cargo space with out sacrificing style and performance. The extra torque is definitely noticeable and appreciated from the previous model's engine. The suspension provides a stiffer ride even in its comfort mode setting, but still not too uncomfortable for daily driving. I like the Driver Assistance Plus Package and Executive Package features too such as active blind spot detection. 8-speed transmission is more responsive and faster than the previous 6-speed transmission. The ability to see at night is improved by the LED headlights. The Long Beach Blue exterior is an eye-catcher too!

Very Disappointed! OVER-COMPLICATED

by Bull from Bradenton, Florida on May 11, 2017

I've owned 3 of the X-5 M, super ridiculously over-complicated, it is a joke. It is much bigger, bulkier, much less intuitive, therefore less sporty than previous models or competitors. It is fast, once you go through all the menus and buttons to wake it up. However, the factory software that was installed, crashed at approximately 1000 miles, even lost my settings and audio. Please don't get me started about the poor dealer network. Consider Merc or Porsche before ever settling on this "LUG"

BMW X5M

by BrianK from Peoria, Il on October 24, 2017

This car is comfortable and quiet. With the V8 motor, there is plenty of power and it is incredibly fun to drive.

Awesome SUV

by Chris Anderson from warsaw, IN on April 23, 2018

This is the SUV of SUV's if you want a performance SUV. This drive so much like a sports car that when you get out and look back at the car, it just doesn't make sense to your brain that you just got out of an SUV. The quality of interior and exterior is outstanding with such style. out of my 13 cars I have owned, my favorite to date.
