What they are saying about the new 2019 BMW X5

Published on October 31 2018

The new-generation BMW X5 has just entered the market and already it is amazing with a ton of new features, a greatly improved level of luxury and refinement, and a style that’s both sporty and elegant.

We have already covered the BMW X5 in another article, now let's take a look at what the media thinks with the recent reviews of the 2019 BMW X5.

That’s all down the road, however. For now, the drive through the morning traffic of downtown Atlanta and out to a more rural setting on the outskirts was in an xDrive 40i. Though time behind the wheel was brief, the X5 felt bank-vault solid, partly because it tips the scales at 2,258 kilograms for the five-seat version (2,339-kilos for the seven-seater), but also because BMW engineers screwed this vehicle tight. Despite the xDrive40i’s avoirdupois, the smooth-running inline-six had no trouble keeping the rig in motion. Indeed, unless you plan to load up the X5 with family, cargo and maybe tow a boat or something similar, the V8 option is superfluous – Driving


If you were expecting a disappointing review of another BMW that just doesn’t seem to drive like it used to, we’re actually happy to report the opposite. Now, imagine meeting a straight-faced German in the workspace who seems to take things too seriously. But then, said person unexpectedly takes you on a thrilling skydiving trip, while still wearing a suit. That pretty much sums up the persona of the X5. 

Our tester came with the lovely 3.0-liter, turbocharged straight-six engine, tuned to 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque and bolted to a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic. The drivetrain left us with no complaints in the performance department, with BMW claiming a 0-62 mph time of just 5.5 seconds – The Digital Trend


We’ve seen the vehicle in person, and the front seats are roomy, as is the three-person second row, which can be fitted with power-folding capability. A third-row seat is optional and will be available shortly after launch, although space in the third-row seat doesn’t materially improve. BMW must expect that the new, larger X7 coming later this year will cater to that crowd - Car & Driver
