A giant of the luxury midsize-crossover-SUV class, the 2020 BMW X5 can seat up to seven and offers variants powered by V8 engines.
As is usually the case with BMW vehicles, the driving experience is a joy for driver and passenger alike. From the base engine to the top choice, there’s power aplenty. In this generation, off-road ability is also enhanced by optional hardware. The software is there too, bringing an infotainment system that’s incredibly user-friendly, plus various driver aids.
The new-for-2020 X5 M, the hottest X5 variant, is reviewed separately. And an X5 plug-in hybrid is in the pipeline, either as a late addition to the 2020 range or as a 2021 model.
