If you want a mid-size luxury crossover SUV that looks more like a sport sedan than a traditional SUV, add the 2018 BMW X5 to your list. If there is a new diesel SUV in your wish list, the 2018 BMW X5 is one of the few vehicles in this segment to offer one more (the others are the Land Rover Discovery and the Range Rover Velar). The benefits of the 2018 BMW X5 are not cheap. Prices start at over $ 58,000 and you will easily spend more with the options. Rivals like the Acura MDX, the Volvo XC90 and the Infiniti QX60 can be obtained at a much lower price, costing nearly $ 14,000 less. If you regularly need a third row, wait for the BMW X7 2019 or choose the QX60, MDX or full size SUV.
Exterior and Interior
The luxurious 2018 BMW X5 SUV retains its smooth, muscular lines and its considerable size is well proportioned. As for its interior, the exterior style of the 2018 BMW X5 prefers to be crisp and clean. You will not find ostentation here, and we think this is the type of design that will age well, like many other BMWs. We particularly like the double entry “kidney” grill that flows to the stylish headlights and folds in the hood. You can distinguish the Hybrid 2018 BMW X5 from the others by its additional filler cap located at the front of the driver. This is where the power port is to charge the 2018 BMW X5’s lithium ion battery.
All models of the 2018 BMW X5 , with the exception of the plugin hybrid, can be chosen with three rows and seats for seven, but we do not recommend placing humans in the last row for long periods. If you opt for this, you will probably find that it is the best flat use to open a cargo space. However, the first and second rows are relatively comfortable for adults of most shapes and sizes. The second row seat folds into a 40/20/40 configuration, useful for placing long objects in the middle without sacrificing position. seated. At the front, the cabin presents the familiar game of BMW’s horizontally aligned keys. As usual in a BMW, the cabin is more minimalist than other luxury brands, but at the same time, it feels sophisticated. The latest iDrive 6.0 entertainment system and its 10.2 inch touch screen are easier to use and its controls are easy to find and understand.
The 2018 BMW X5 comes with few engine options. The first will be an electric 2.0 liter/four turbocharged engine to generate 308 hp. The next is 3.0 liter turbocharged inline six for 300 hp. The most powerful will be the X5 M with a turbocharger double V8 of 4.4 liters for 567 hp. The EPA for the M is 14/19 mpg city / highway. The maximum speed is 156 mph and can accelerate about 6 seconds.
Price and Release Date
2018 BMW X5 for the price range is $ 54,000 to $ 100,000. It is assumed that it will be published by the end of 2017.
