Loading Comparison...


The BMW X5 midsize crossover SUV is able to seat seven and features the taut driving dynamics that symbolize the brand. The X5 was last redesigned for the 2014 model year. Little has changed for 2018.

Most 2018 BMW X5 models get a sport-tuned version of the 8-speed automatic transmission. Option groups have been altered, essentially serving as separate trim levels. Most individual options are available with the Premium package.

The X5 presents a broad choice of powertrains. Two turbocharged gasoline engines are offered in regular X5 models: a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder, and a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. The six-cylinder makes 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, escalating to 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet from the V8.

A 3.0-liter turbodiesel six goes into the X5 xDrive35d, developing 255 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is standard.

BMW also offers a plug-in hybrid, which combines a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor and 9.2-kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Combined output totals 308 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque.

All X5s use an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard on the base gas-engine model, but upper trim levels come with all-wheel drive. AWD is optional for the base version.

For all-out performance, the X5 M unleashes a 567-horsepower version of the 4.4-liter V8, producing 553 pound-feet of torque. Sport seats, strengthened steering, and a track-tuned suspension are standard.

Plenty of advanced safety technology is available, but most items are costly options. All X5s now contain a rearview camera. Surround-view cameras and a head-up display are optional. Automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control also are available.

An optional Parking Assistant can position the X5 in a parallel or perpendicular parking spot. Traffic Jam Assistant strives to keep the crossover in its lane, safely behind the vehicle ahead.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has given the X5 five stars overall, and five each for its frontal and side-impact crash. Testing by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety yielded a Good score in its moderate-overlap frontal and side-impact tests. Automatic emergency braking earned a Superior rating.


X5 sDrive35i ($56,950) includes the six-cylinder engine, rear-wheel drive, leatherette upholstery, 14-way heated power front seats, adaptive headlights, power tailgate, panoramic moonroof, and nine-speaker audio. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $995 destination charge.) X5 xDrive35i ($59,250) includes all-wheel drive.

X5 xDrive35d ($60,750) has a twin-turbo diesel six-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive.

X5 xDrive40e iPerformance ($63,500) has a hybrid powertrain with 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, all-wheel drive, and adaptive suspension.

X5 xDrive50i ($73,800) gets the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with all-wheel drive, leather seat upholstery, 20-way power front seats, pushbutton start, and Harman Kardon audio.

X5 M ($100,700) includes the 567-horsepower V8, M-level suspension, larger brakes, and distinctive styling elements.

An optional M Sport package features unique styling touches and a firmer suspension.


Undeniably upscale, the X5 might fall short in automotive personality, due to relatively bland styling. Any appearance deficits tend to be offset by the X5’s refined and spacious cabin, as well as its powertrain and handling capabilities.

Conspicuous up front is BMW’s twin kidney grille. Subtle creases highlight the bodysides. The two-piece, power-operated tailgate can serve as a temporary seat when parked for an outdoor event. Although it may hamper loading of larger items, it also prevents cargo from falling out when the rear hatch is opened.


BMW’s conservative design principles apply to the X5’s cabin as well as its body. Not only is the interior warmly appealing, it provides abundant space for five adult occupants.

Cargo space is plentiful, totaling 23 cubic feet with rear seatbacks up, expanding to 66 cubic feet when they’re folded. The optional third-row seat is best suited for youngsters.

Controls are arranged in a straightforward layout, easy to reach. The driver faces a hefty, triple-spoke steering wheel.

Front seats provide ample support. Multi-contoured seats are the most inviting. Second-row seats promise satisfying space as well as an excellent view, due to the X5’s low beltline.

Infotainment centers on a 10.2-inch touchscreen and BMW’s newest, excellent version of iDrive, using a touchpad and control knob. Apple CarPlay is available.

Driving Impressions

Depending on model, driving an X5 can be surprisingly pleasurable, augmented by a softly comfortable ride: BMW offers several suspension possibilities. Softest-riding is the base model, which could wallow when cornering at higher speed.

Despite weighing about 4,700 pounds, the base X5 can accelerate to 60 mph in a bit more than six seconds. Not only is the six-cylinder gas engine smooth, its strong power delivery begins as soon as the gas pedal is touched. As expected, the quiet V8 version is notably quicker.

Diesel X5s might be in short supply, but the xDrive35d is powerful and refined, as well as fuel-efficient. A larger price premium ($4,250) applies to the xDrive40e hybrid. When fully charged, it can go 14 miles on electric power alone. In automatic mode, the gas engine usually remains off at speeds below 45 mph.

For substantially greater stability when cornering, plus confidence on curvy roads, an adaptive suspension is optional. An M Sport package firms up the suspension and enhances control further yet.

Naturally, 567-horsepower X5 M is the choice for full-bore performance, coupling race-track potential with capability for daily driving. Brakes are heartier, and the suspension firmer yet.

An X5 might look ready for off-road treks, but that’s not its main mission. All-wheel drive (xDrive) works nicely on snow-covered roads and milder journeys past the pavement.

Fuel economy is about as expected. The 2017 X5 xDrive35i was EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. With rear-wheel drive, the sDrive35i edges up to 18/25/21 mpg. The diesel xDrive35d earns an impressive 23/29/25 mpg estimate.

The hybrid xDrive40e has been EPA-rated at 24 mpg combined, but 56 MPGe (equivalent), based on the amount of energy required to supply the electricity.

The xDrive50i’s V8 guzzles, EPA-rated at 15/21 mpg City/Highway, or 17 mpg Combined. Even thirstier is the X5 M, rated at just 14/19/16 mpg. Each X5 has stop/start, which can shut off the engine at stoplights. Early BMW start/stop operation could be annoying, but the current version is less noticeable than some similar systems.


The BMW X5 delivers premium surroundings, ample features, and BMW performance. Options add greatly to the purchase price.

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.
