The BMW X5 can claim to have begun the trend towards large 4x4s that were meant for road use rather than frequent forays into the wilderness. And the new model launched in 2007 improves that formula further - it's more spacious, economical and quicker than before, plus it's better to drive too.

Equipment

There are three trim levels with the BMW X5, though the X5 M petrol and X5 M50d are standalone models with the same level of equipment in each. So, the rest of the range can be ordered in either SE or M Sport guises.

BMW X5 equipment

The SE version of the BMW X5 comes with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, 18-inch alloy wheels, self-levelling air suspension, six airbags, ESP, Hill Start Assist, parking sensors front and rear, Xenon headlights, automatic lights and wipers, and run-flat tyres.

The SE also has cruise control with brake function to keep it a set distance from the car in front, metallic paint, roof rails and central locking. It also has electric windows all-round, Nevada leather upholstery, electric door mirrors, rear tailgate that can be opened remotely and has a soft-close function, and heated windscreen washer jets. BMW includes air conditioning, multi-function steering wheel, CD stereo with MP3 connection, iDrive controller and 6.5-inch colour display screen.

The M Sport models gain 19-inch alloy wheels, sports front seats, and M Sport leather steering wheel. For the X5 M models, BMW supplies 19-inch M V-spoke alloy wheels, M Sport suspension and metallic paint.

BMW X5 accessories

BMW offers a whole range of optional alloy wheels for the X5 that come in 20- and 21-inch sizes. Other options for the exterior of the car include roof add-ons for the standard roof rails to fix a bike carrier or you can also order ski and snowboard carriers. Roof boxes are another option for attaching to the roof rails.

A tow bar can be ordered for the X5, as can extended door mirrors to see safely around a wider trailer or caravan. On the inside, BMW offers an umbrella holder, boot organiser and load tray to keep the boot tidier and cleaner, while rear seat occupants can enjoy DVD screens that either attach to the rear of the front seats or one that drops down from the headlining of the car. Mobile phone holders, Bluetooth and satellite navigation are all options that can be ordered for the X5, as can a reversing camera that works thought the dash display screen.
