Looking for the perfect luxury SUV? The 2019 BMW X5 may be the vehicle for you. This midsize luxury SUV has been completely redesigned for the year, delivering powerful performance and great features. Whether you are driving around your family or a large group of friends, you'll have the space and versatility you are looking for daily or weekend driving. This year the X5 offers a superior fuel economy too, getting up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. When purchasing a new X5, drivers currently have a choice between two major trims. Read on to find out more.
The BMW X5 xDrive40i is an incredible base model that gives you a whole lot for your money. Starting at $60,700, you'll get a 335-horsepower six-cylinder engine with eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Acceleration is terrific and you'll also get the maximum fuel economy ratings with this model. A huge variety of features come standard including dual-zone climate control, an iDrive infotainment system with 12.3-inch touchscreen, a 10-speaker hi-fi audio system, smartphone integration, USB ports and navigation. A panoramic moonroof allows some natural liight to enter the cabin, while also giving your friends and family some fresh air on long drives. Driver assistance features such as adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and blind spot monitoring are included as well.
For $75,750, you can upgrade to the X5 xDrive50i. This model comes with a crazy powerful turbocharged V8 that generates 456 horsepower. Other upgrades featured in the 50i are Vernasca leather upholstery, a 16-speaker audio system, satellite radio, and quad-zone climate control. In addition to this trim, an M Sport model will be offered as well for $79,550, but that won't be available until later this year. It should be noted that 50i and 40i both offer up to 72.3 cubic feet of space, which isn't class-leading by any means, but nonetheless, provides a decent amount of cargo space.
