Involved driving experience; more room for 2007; practicality and luxury.
BMW's SUVs have always placed more emphasis on sport rather than utility, and the redesigned 2007 X5 continues in that tradition. The X5 is one of the few SUVs that wears a "tuned at the Nurburgring" label.
The 260-horsepower 3.0L in-line six is the base engine, and a 4.8L V8 with double overhead camshafts and four-valves-per cylinder is available. The V8 produces a rousing 350 horsepower. Both engines are matched with six-speed automatic transmissions and are outfitted with a sport-tuned suspension.
All the features you would expect to find standard on a $55,000 vehicle are present, including xenon adaptive headlights, rain-sensing windshields, power and memory functions, stability control, and dual zone automatic climate control. A tire pressure monitor, dynamic cruise control, and BMW's famed iDrive system are also present. When opting for the V8, leather seat trim, 18-inch alloys, self-leveling rear suspension, and interior walnut trim are added.
A Premium Package is available with either engine, and it outfits the X5 with a universal garage door opener, a panoramic moonroof, auto-dimming rearview mirrors, among other items. A Sport Package adds 19-inch wheels, run-flat tires, electronic damping control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. A number of other packages are available for an enhanced audio experience, cold-weather motoring, and overall comfort. A third row seat can be ordered for those who want to seat seven people.
For 2007 the BMW X5 has been redesigned, but you'll have to look hard to notice it. No one complained about the previous X5 styling, so rather than a radical makeover, the 2007 X5 was expanded to make more room inside. The body panels were massaged in such a way, though, that the new X5 doesn't look any larger.
You'll also find additional utility in the 2007 X5. There is now an optional third row of seats for a total of seven occupants. The rest of the interior is very elegantly designed, and abounds with quality touches. The six-speed automatic backs up both the 260-horsepower 3.0L six-cylinder engine and the stirring 350-horsepower 4.8L V8. The 4.4L V8 is no longer available.
The BMW X5 is an all-wheel-drive, luxury SUV for those who enjoy driving. It offers some of the best handling responses of any vehicle in its class, yet it doesn't skimp on luxury features. The X5 offers similar utility to the competition, too, but blows most of them out of the water when it comes to driving dynamics.
