The BMW X5 stands out from the rest of the pack with its emphasis on on-road driving performance. It's unlike any normal SUV and that's why it introduced its own category which is the SAV or sport activity vehicle. The elegant exterior and beautiful interior are highly praised in the market. For a better overall performance, the X5 is equipped with a straight-six or V8 engine. The standard transmission is AT for all models. It also runs on a 4WD system for acceleration and handling.
Depending on the year of the X5's release and its grade, drivers can look forward to the installation of plenty of convenient equipment. For example, some vehicles of the X5's second generation boast an engine which has 2 units of 4.8 L V8 DOHC (355 hp) and 3 L straight 6 DOHC (272 hp), both adopting VALVETRONIC and double VANOS.
Active steering with variable assist amount and Toronic (vehicle speed responsive), adaptive headlights (with cornering light), HDD navigation system with iDrive system and more are installed in many models as standard equipment. In addition, when locking or unlocking the door, or starting and stopping the engine, the X5 has "comfort access" which can lock or unlock the door and start and stop the engine even while your key is still in your pocket or bag. This feature is also standard for this special SAV.
