Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 BMW X5 boasts a solid set of powertrains and features that move the sedan toward the top of any list of luxury SUVs.
BMW's charge into every SUV segment hasn't watered down the one that started it all. The 2017 BMW X5 is a benchmark for luxury SUVs and the bar by which many are compared. Its off-road ability is eclipsed only by its on-road manners, and its interior style and comfort make this SUV a must-see for shoppers.

Pros
Bright and stunning interior cabin
Very advanced safety features available
Strong powertrains, top to bottom
Comfortable and quick

Cons
Exterior is languishing, a bit
Very small third row
Price can balloon up to six figures (!) now
Hybrid isn't very fuel efficient either.

The 2017 BMW X5 remains one of the top picks in the very competitive midsize luxury SUV class. Strong performance, a luxurious cabin and an efficient diesel engine option help distinguish it from its accomplished rivals.

Pros
Strong performance from every model
Luxurious and comfortable cabin that lives up to its price tag
Optional diesel engine is as potent as it is efficient
A long list of optional features allows for a wide range of customization.

Cons
Less legroom in the second row compared to some of its competitors
Optional third-row seats are tight even for children.

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2017 BMW X5 ranks 4 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. With plenty of power, loads of cargo room, and a comfy interior, the 2017 BMW X5 should satisfy just about anyone looking for a luxury SUV or a weekend getaway vehicle. Just watch the price tag; the X5 isn’t exactly cheap.

Pros
Range of powerful engines
Lithe handling
Commodious front seats

Cons
Optional third row is small even for kids
