In terms of the interiors, the X5 is equipped with iDrive 7 on the centre console, a projected navigation display on the lower windshield, and the signature instrument display. The iDrive controller can still be used, as well as gesture control and voice via Intelligent Personal Assistant. Gesture controls for operations such as attending calls and controlling the audio volume. The speaker system thumps with phenomenal bass, and maximum volume is too loud for any normal human to bear. The available third-row seat is handy, but bear in mind that the space is best left for kids. Rear occupants also can enjoy viewing their video content via 10.2-inch touch screen monitors, fitted behind each front seat. The X5 of this era could seat up to seven. Comfort Access is now standard. It’s loaded with comfort amenities as well. You’ll likely see well over 40 miles in warmer months, especially if you spend a lot of time in town where electric motors are most efficient. The new xDrive45e plug-in hybrid, while still delivering impressive levels of performance, also has a pure electric range of up to 54 miles – providing improved levels of efficiency and lower emissions.
The X5 xDrive45e is a plug-in hybrid that can drive up to 30 miles using battery power alone. The battery meanwhile is one of the largest in the plug-in hybrid segment, with an energy content of 24 kWh. Our rich content includes expert reviews and recommendations for the 2021 X5 M featuring deep dives into trim levels and features, performance, mpg, safety, interior, and driving. All previous hybrid BMWs have impressed me; with more than adequate performance, surprisingly good fuel economy, and powertrain calibration so smooth and clever it bordered on magic. The BMW X5 has always been noted for its road-focused performance, and that remains the case with the latest generation. As such, the new generation G05 BMW X5 xDrive45e is also fitted with M Sport package. Key features of the BMW X5 include an 8 speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission available in all variants except the base diesel version which is available with BMW’s 8 speed Steptronic automatic transmission, Servotronic steering assist, LED headlamps with four LED DRL (Daytime Running Lamp) light rings and LED fog lamps. With BMW Operation System 7.0, users can customise the contents of the main display screen, displaying personalized information in up to four quarters (or widgets) such as including the sport display with audio, weather and cruising information.
Front occupants sit in sport seats with increased adjustments. Tests on the front seats and head restraints demonstrated good protection against whiplash injuries in the event of a rear-end collision. I hate the things – I am a cyclist, I have a young child with a head at bull-bar height and I am as worried as anyone else about the planet. It boasts the same level of luxury and style that you would expect from any BMW, but you don’t have to sacrifice performance for luxury. All variants feature the same super-smooth eight-speed auto gearbox, and a 4×4 drivetrain that sends more torque to the rear wheels in order to emphasise the sporty driving feel. The X5 xDrive is more efficient than those, achieving 23 mpg combined while the X5 xDrive45e gets 20 mpg combined when strictly running on gasoline but is rated at 50 MPGe when getting power from electricity and gas. What is the MPG of a 2021 BMW X5 M? The number is 50.2 UK mpg which translates into 41.8 US mpg or 5.63 l/100 km. The power goes through an eight-speed M Steptronic gearbox, with the M Competition hitting 62mph in just 3.8 seconds. They’re all good and at the least, the base 335-hp sDrive40i goes from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds, same as the 389-hp xDrive45e plug-in hybrid that has a 30-mile electric range.

For the 2021 model year, BMW has added the X5 xDrive45e plug-in hybrid model to its lineup. Thanks to the experience in negotiating on the pricing of locally-assembled hybrid models, the xDrive45e M Sport has a price of RM 434,377.45 in Malaysia, much lower than the xDrive40i at RM 618,800, which has its importation from BMW USA discontinued since. For those worried about the durability and performance of the hybrid battery, BMW Malaysia has extended the hybrid battery’s warranty by another 2 years/60,000 km, bringing the hybrid battery warranty to 8 years/160,000 km. It can take four to five hours to recharge the battery pack using a 240-volt outlet or public charging station. Like before, we should expect the same four engine options. Doesn’t like it is a snob. The X5 doesn’t deliver the connected drive experience. And for gadget geeks, there’s endless fun to be had in terms of infotainment, entertainment and drive systems. However, some of its active safety systems can be too sensitive, and the optional gesture-based control system is gimmicky. However, the driver knee airbag was found not to have deployed correctly. However, as complicated as it may all sound, all of this work paid off.
