The BMW X5 is the German auto giant’s first-ever attempt at making a luxury SUV and the brand nailed it with its brilliant engineering and design. The SUV featured an AWD system and a base 3.0-liter straight-6 motor which is retained even to this day. Along with a comfortable cabin, the SUV came with a strong set of safety aids and a sturdy build quality as one would expect from a German vehicle.
The 2016 BMW X5 comes with no changes barring the introduction of a plug-in hybrid model. The SUV gets the base I-6 engine that is a brilliant performer and also has an enhanced ride quality. In the segment, the X5 competes against the Mercedes-Benz GLE Class, Lexus GX 460, and the Volkswagen Touareg.
