2019 BMW X5 review


Further back, we’re delighted that BMW has retained the signature two-piece electric tailgate, with the bottom section able to remain in place, or to drop and make a table/bench. It’s space-saving, and flexible, and an increasingly rare offering.

The new X5 arrives locally from November, in xDrive 30d and xDrive M50d forms. Pricing should go close to the current versions ($112,990 and $144,990 before on-road costs, respectively), though don’t be shocked to see a small jump. Ditto when the xDrive45e PHEV arrives.

We’d like to see a cheaper, sub-$100k base offering (like the outgoing $93,990 sDrive25d) just to bolster the options list. Moreover, if your priority is vast cabin space, the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90 probably do it better than the Bimmer, though the BMW X7 coming soon will change this dynamic once again.
