suv Remedy: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the attachment bolts for the driver’s seat and seat belt, and torque them to the correct specifications, as necessary, free of charge. Remedy: BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the headlamps and, if necessary, replace them, free of charge. That’s because the 9 percent battery charge should be enough to get the Tesla to a charger. However, it’s the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e that’s the star of the show. That’s where we step in, breaking down the variant lineup to not only tell you what they offer, but also which one makes the most sense for you. When it comes to on-road manners (off-roading won’t even get a mention), there isn’t that much between them, but it’s the little things that drag the Mercedes-Benz down. The X5 M has a lot more AMG DNA – and maybe even a dash of the Range Rover Sport SVR’s demonic possession – lurking about it than BMW would prefer to admit.

It’s not that you can’t take the X5 off-road, but this vehicle is much more at home on paved surfaces. After some experimentation, I fixed the problem by ordering some flexible magnet sheeting from McMaster-Carr, an amazing supplier whose inventory makes Home Depot look like the corner hardware store. The problem for BMW is that many rivals have caught, and even surpassed, the X5 when it comes to offering the ultimate in driving excitement. The base X5 SUV starts at about $60,000, but the X5 M version will surely cost around $100,000 or even above that. The X5 M50i starts at $82,800, and it adds a 523-horsepower V8 engine, a sport-tuned adaptive suspension, 20-inch wheels, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats with 20-way power adjustments, and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo. Standard equipment includes leather upholstery, 12.3-inch infotainment display, electrically adjustable heated front seats and air conditioning, wireless smartphone charger, 19-inch alloy wheels and air suspension. Other options include larger diameter alloy wheels (from £1,575), a Bowers & Wilkins stereo (at £3,190) and a pair of 10.2-inch infotainment screens for the rear seats (for £2,245). The first- and second-row seats are spacious for adults, and the front seats in particular feel supple and supportive.

Apart from this you get better front seats and an ‘M’ specific exterior and interior. The brand has upped its standard safety equipment on the latest X5, including forward collision warning, lane departure warning, blind spot detection, and front and rear parking sensors standard. BMW’s all-wheel-drive system, xDrive, is standard on all variants of the X5. Expected to account for between 80 and 85 per cent of UK sales, the xDrive30d is fitted with 3.0-litre straight-six diesel, producing 261bhp and 620Nm of torque which, like all new X5s, is fed through an eight-speed gearbox to an all-wheel-drive system. Under the hood, the X5 xDrive40 Li will be powered by a 365hp, 3.0-litre inline-six turbocharged petrol engine, which is 25hp up from the standard wheelbase X5 available globally. In fact, India is only market where BMW sells a right-hand-drive, long wheelbase version of the 3-Series. However, the 3-Series is a relatively high volume product compared to the X5 here, and its highly unlikely that the X5 LWB will reach our shores. Although the BMW X5 xDrive40 Li is currently only for China, it’s worth noting that the German carmaker has also acknowledged the long wheelbase luxury car market in India.

Other options include the Driving Assistant Professional package, which adds lane change warning, rear-end collision warning and adaptive cruise control, capable of automatically braking and accelerating the car to motorway speeds from a standstill. BMW’s Parking Assistant is included on all X5s as standard, and can automatically select and manoeuvre the vehicle into parallel parking spaces. A power liftgate comes standard, and it opens in separate upper and lower sections, with the top portion raising up, and the bottom portion lowering like a pickup truck tailgate. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rated the BMW a Top Safety Pick Plus, representing top scores for all crashworthiness tests, as well as for crash prevention and mitigation. After nearly a year in our fleet, we were finally able to beat the EPA’s highway fuel economy estimate for our long-term X5. That’s better than the EPA estimate of 20 mpg in combined driving. Volvo’s XC90 T8 Recharge easily rivals the X5 in terms of quality and premium luxury, though the BMW would best it when it comes to driving dynamics. The X5 platform and powertrains also make up the basis for the bigger and more luxurious three-row X7, so if you like the cabin of the larger car but don’t need the extra space, or want to pay the premium for it, then the X5 would be a perfect choice.
