The 2019 BMW X5 is getting even closer to a car that does everything in its family. The BMW X5 2019 didn’t cut anything new from the standard-issue SUV, but the details suited it more. The upper part of the rear pillar reminds us that it is BMW, not Sorento, hiccups across the rear wheels give the rear end a planted stance that exudes more performance than the utility. The 2019 X5 has one of the best BMW cockpits of the year as well. It’s a great balance between the purity of concept cars and logical organization and it looks especially fine with crystal-guided controls and supple premium leather.
2019 BMW X5 Features
2019 BMW X5 standard features of audio include AM / FM / XM tuning with Bluetooth audio streaming and USB connectivity. BMW offers Apple CarPlay compatibility but charges owners an annual fee after an initial one-year service period. It is a move that is not a consumer without parallel in the industry. At the same time, BMW will offer owners a suite of connected services that will cloud the settings from one BMW to another, enable Alex’s on-road service, and even read emails from a Microsoft Office 365 account. It will also provide drivers with a digital key that allows the smartphone to unlock and lock the vehicle, though Apple devices will need to carry a key card with sleeves that will communicate with the car.
BMW’s latest iDrive entertainment info system features a cute 12.3-inch touchscreen in the latest iteration, and for a small charge, BMW fits it into gesture control. It’s a great trick by twisting your finger in the air to silence the radio, but it’s also easy to turn the button a few inches forward on the dash. The system has a multitude of talents, from navigation to the door handling the car and running the tables where it is parked.
2019 BMW X5 Engine
BMW brings the 2019 X5 closer to sedan-style performance with each new generation. And this time, it relies on several power-trains to do the not-so-dirty job. Normally, we would be in all engines with a 456-horsepower twin-turbo V-8, but BMW’s 340hp turbo-6 transmits 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds through a sweetly tuned 8-speed automatic and rear bias – wheel drive. Replaced by street tires and steering wheels that are sometimes overly eager, the 201 X5 presents itself with a faithful, if not outright, ride.
Choosing a durable power-train combines the excellent BMW with a 4-liter 4-liter V-8 with 8-speed automatic and rear all-wheel drive. In the X5 xDrive50i, the V-8 pumps out 456bhp and achieves a maximum torque of 479 pound-feet at just 1,500 rpm. It is docked at 0-60 mph for 4.6 seconds, with a top speed of 130 mph.
2019 BMW X5 Safety
The 2019 BMW X5 receives collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, blind monitors, rubber pads, LED headlights, automatic lights and active lane control. The X5 also has magnificent road views, despite its thick roof pillars and large mirror housings. The package, called Active Driving Assistant Pro, costs extra, but includes lane change assist and downtime, allowing the BMW X5 2019 to track the car forward at low speeds.
Security options include a camera system for surround view, night vision and a head-up display that transfers your data to a larger area. The X5 can also turn up to 164 feet on the track it has just crossed if the driver wishes. With automatic parking assistance, the 2019 BMW X5 40e can target most vertical or parallel parking spaces.
