Loading Comparison...


The BMW X5 is the one that broadened the luxury sport-utility trend. Introduced for 2000 and last reworked for the 2014 model year, the X5 ranks near the top of any list of luxury-level SUVs. Little has changed for the 2017 model year, except for addition of a 10.2-inch touchscreen to the latest iDrive infotainment system.

The 2017 BMW X5 sDrive35i comes with a lusty turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that develops 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Offered with rear- or all-wheel drive, the X5 sDrive35i can reach 60 mph in just over six seconds.

Those who demand more can step up to the X5 xDrive50i, with a 445-horsepower, 4.4-liter turbo V8 that surges ahead with abundant authority. Acceleration time to 60 mph drops to 4.7 seconds.

BMW also offers the plug-in hybrid X5 xDrive40e, which couples a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine to an electric motor and battery pack, yielding combined output of 308 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Battery-only range is only 14 miles, but the plug-in hybrid earns a 58 MPGe fuel-economy rating from the EPA. With a Level 2 charger, the 9.2-kWh lithium-ion battery pack may reach full charge in less than three hours.

A turbodiesel xDrive35d was available in 2015, but federal testers began examining emissions in the wake of Volkswagen’s falsification scandal. Testing was completed in summer 2016, and the turbodiesel has returned. Its 3.0-liter engine generates 255 horsepower.

In a different league entirely, the X5 M unfurls a twin-turbo V8 that generates 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. Transmission gearing differs from the regular V8, oil pumps tolerate higher g-force, and a rear air suspension is standard.

All X5s use an 8-speed automatic transmission. An X5 can seat up to seven, but reaching the uncomfortable third row isn’t easy for grownups.

Any of three special lines may be specified. Luxury Line and xLine models add distinctive trim. The Sport option adds an aero body kit and Shadowline trim.

The X5 earned five-star ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, except four-star for rollovers, not uncommon for tall SUVs. Good ratings came from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but only two tests have been performed: side-impact and moderate front overlap.

BMW’s big SUV offers a fine selection of safety features, but most are extra-cost options. Only the xDrive50i, for instance, has a standard rearview camera.


The 2017 BMW X5 sDrive35i ($55,500) comes standard with rear-wheel drive, six-cylinder engine, 19-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, a panoramic moonroof, 14-way power heated front seats, wood trim, power-adjustable steering wheel, Bluetooth, adaptive cruise control, navigation with traffic information, and a power tailgate. X5 xDrive35i ($57,800) adds all-wheel drive.

X5 xDrive50i ($72,300) gets the V8, leather upholstery, 20-way front seats, a rearview camera, keyless ignition, and 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio.

X5 xDrive40e ($62,100) is a plug-in hybrid with all-wheel drive and adjustable dampers with a rear air suspension.

X5 xDrive35d ($59,300) uses a turbodiesel engine and all-wheel drive.

X5 M ($99,795), the high-performance model, gets a 567-horsepower V8.


Today’s X5 exhibits a softer appearance than its predecessors. Wearing BMW’s familiar kidney-shaped grille with chrome surrounds, flanked by nicely positioned headlights, the front end shows a kinship to BMW’s sedans.

With its tapered roofline and low windows, the X5 looks a bit more wagon-like than typical SUVs. A character line reaches back to LED taillights, adding a bit of wedge shaping to the profile.


Inside, the X5 looks like all BMWs, starting with the bright, driver-centered cockpit and shelf-style dashboard configuration. Materials are excellent, matched by top-notch infotainment. Now including a 10.2-inch touchscreen, the iDrive display is crisp and colorful.

Standard poplar wood trim and black leatherette upholstery may be replaced by either of two options: ivory white or mocha Nappa leather. Dakota leather goes into the xDrive50i.

Front occupants are separated by a wide console that includes ample storage. Because of the standard sunroof, six-footers have scant headroom unless seats are reclined.

Although seven passengers can fit inside, the folding third-row seat is mighty small and challenging to reach, except for youngsters. Without third-row seating, cargo space totals 23 cubic feet, expanding to 66 cubic feet with second-row seatbacks down.

Driving Impressions

BMW’s full-fledged SUV scores highly in both on- and off-road talents. Regardless of engine, useful power will never be in short supply, despite the X5’s hefty curb weight. It’s hard to imagine anyone being disappointed with the six-cylinder engine. Then again, the twin-turbo 445-horsepower V8, yielding 480 pound-feet of torque, unleashes a profound surge to satisfy those who crave even greater force. Fitted with plentiful sound-deadening material, the xDrive50i delivers its vigor in a civilized, drama-free manner.

If raucous behavior is the goal, BMW offers the costly but quick X5 M, boosting V8 output to 567 horsepower and shrinking 0-60 mph time to four seconds.

Behavior of the xDrive40e plug-in hybrid system varies according to its settings. In MAX eDrive, the X5 hybrid is propelled solely by electricity, unless you floor the accelerator pedal. AUTO eDrive lets the gasoline engine engage more often. Performance is strong, pleasant and quiet, though an occasional rough shift might occur.

Selecting Eco Pro mode retards throttle responses, provokes earlier upshifts, and lets the X5 coast at times, by disconnecting the engine. The system can even choose certain routes that promise peak fuel-efficiency.

In Eco Pro and Comfort modes, steering feedback is limited, and on-center feel could be better. Sport and Sport+ modes provide greater heft, in keeping with BMW tradition. Optional Active Steering varies the ratio in accord with speed and cornering force.

BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive splits engine torque front to rear, interacting with traction- and stability-control systems. To help with off-roading, an LCD screen can show exactly how power is apportioned between the wheels.

Visibility is excellent, and available surround-view cameras can ease parking. BMW’s Parking Assistant goes further, able to steer the X5 into parallel or perpendicular parking spots by touching a button. Also available is Traffic Jam Assistant, which helps keep the X5 in its lane, at a proper distance from the vehicle ahead.

Fuel economy is on the weak side, even for a heavy SUV. The rear-drive X5 sDrive35i is EPA-rated at 18/25 mpg City/Highway, or 21 mpg Combined. Adding all-wheel drive drops the highway estimate to 24 mpg. As expected, picking the twin-turbo V8 slashes EPA ratings to 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined. The 2016 plug-in hybrid managed a 24 mpg Combined rating using gasoline, and 56 MPGe when blending electric and gas operation.


Virtually a benchmark for its category, the X5 blends refined, civilized road behavior with authentic off-road capabilities. Add a helping of interior comfort and style, and the amply-equipped X5 is a vessel of temptations, with a broad choice of potent powertrains. Beware, though. Extravagant use of the options list could boost the price sharply.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
