This is the third generation of the popular BMW X5 off-roader, a car that once represented 10 percent of all BMWs sold in the UK. Hoping to re-create that sort of sales success it promises major advances in design, luxury, comfort, safety, efficiency and driving enjoyment.

Equipment

In theory the line up of BMW X5s is a simple one; starting with SE and moving up to M Sport.

However, in practice there are a few other trims to pay attention to on the way, and now customers can add the Design Pure Experience or Design Pure Excellence trims to their SE models. The former is aimed at those who like the purposeful looks of a 4x4 vehicle, the latter for those concerned more with glamour than gorge-walking, as evidenced by the chrome trimmings that adorn it. If you like the idea of the M Sport but lack the budget, the Dynamic package is available too.

Standard BMW X5 equipment

No matter what you choose, all BMW X5 models come with 18-inch alloy wheels, Xenon headlights, metallic paint, automatic split rear tailgate, LED fog plus taillights and roof rails to ensure they stand out on the road. For those lucky enough to be riding inside one the part electric leather seats, DAB radio, dual zone climate control and Bluetooth should make any long journey comfortable.

As does the standard cruise control and auto dimming rear mirror, while the Professional Sat-nav with real time traffic information means you’ll get to your destination when you expect to. Parking sensors front and rear mean you’ll have no trouble parking and the firm’s Online services mean you can find and book a hotel or locate the best parking on arrival.

Should the worst happen and you become involved in an accident the BMW Emergency Call system will contact the local emergency services, in whatever language is applicable, and tell them how many people are in the car, whether the airbags have been deployed and give them the exact GPS location.

Design Pure Experience adds 19-inch alloy wheels, and a mixture of matt aluminium and titanium look trim to the exterior while the Design Pure Excellence swaps the matt aluminium and titanium-look efforts for glossy chrome. The Dynamic Package changes the seats for Sport items and outside the metal trim has been eschewed for a dark ‘shadowline’ material.

Those lucky enough to have a budget stretching to M Sport trim will fine special 19-inch M Sport alloy wheels, subtly more aggressive bumpers, that shdaowline trim, quad exhaust pipes and M badging. Inside the seats are finished in leather and Alcantara and are fully electrically adjustable, while the chassis gets Adaptive M Sport suspension with self-levelling rear.

Optional BMW X5 accessories

There’s a host of packages available for the BMW X5 including the Active Security Package, ConnectedDrive Services Package, Cold Weather package and the Professional Adaptive Suspension Package on top of the Dynamic and Design Pure choices.

Comfort seats can be specified front and rear, a huge array of interior trims, materials and colours are available and Bang and Olufsen will supply an advanced audio system. For those more concerned with the driving experience a sports automatic transmission can be mated with the different suspension options while safety can be enhanced with the Adaptive LED headlights, Night Vision and a Surround View camera.
