The new 2015 BMW X5 is out as the fans have eagerly awaited the return of this great SUV vehicle. The new X5 is a vehicle which has been engineered in Germany but actually built in South Carolina, represents a fabulous combination of luxury and on road maneuverability. The car has been built to possess the ability to enable you where you wish to go and bring you high comfort levels as well.
Although the comfort levels in this case have been highlighted and this is the part on which the concentration of the manufacturers was the most, opposed to off road capabilities, the car is a very useful and very good vehicle, representing a benchmark for a modern luxurious vehicle.
Despite being a bit on the pricey side, as the people view it, the price for the new 2015 BMW X5 is actually ok and can be viewed as standard actually. We have provided you with some pictures to go along with the review so you get a glimpse of what the car is actually all about and what it represents. Read on to get the facts.
2015 BMW X5 exterior
The overall feel when you look at the exterior design of the 2015 BMW X5 is that it is a pretty good design. Although, the sheet metal that has been used is not that much changed and has been mostly taken from the previous model, the car looks much better than before.
Particularly the noticeable changes can be seen on the cabin which is now stylized in great fashion and looks much better than the predecessor. It is not in any way dramatically changed but it has been sculptured in all the right places, making the design that much better.
At the sides we notice a more X3 shape, where we can notice that the more tapered roofline and new beltline make a much more sport-wagon looking appeal and picture. As seen the car actually makes a lot more sense now, or actually the proportions of the vehicle have been set a lot better.
The inside continues what the swell design as the outside. The redesign of the new 2015 BMW X5 looks great and actually makes a lot of sense. The dashboard has been redesigned and made to protrude compared with the other parts of the inside.
The thing that makes it so are the combination of brown leather and neutral leather designs that the car has been fashioned with Actually there are some more different color schemes that are offered which you can choose from if you do not want the standard offering.
The inside can also stack up to seven people inside at the same time. But unfortunately, the comfort is not as high as you might think and there is going to be a tight squeeze inside of the vehicle.
The second row now comes with 40/20/40 and adds more flexibility, with adjustable rake and an optional third row of seats. Although an Easy entry function is also provided, there is still less space than one should hope for. The cargo space is ample but also takes a toll on the seating arrangement. So you may thing that the design of the car is great but the comfort levels can be a bit higher and this is the only fault of this vehicle so far.
The base engine for the 2015 BMW X5 is 3.0-liter, twin-turbo with an in-line six-cylinder engine. It has the capability of reaching 300 hp and a means to achieve a speed and acceleration of 0 to 60 at about 6.2 seconds. But this time we are also able to enjoy a xDrive35d turbodiesel and the V-8-powered xDrive50i option as well.
The 0-60 acceleration of the former is an astounding 4.9 seconds and it beats the latter version which can achieve that sort of speed in a not too shabby 6.9 seconds. But the diesel’s engine fuel efficiency numbers and the provided torque are enough to make these two options as equals, so it could be pretty hard to decide which of the two to pick when the time comes.
Price and release date
The base price for the 2015 BMW X5 vehicle is set at $54,000, and it is actually somewhere around the standard of all of the European brand SUVs. Depending on which features you add to the base trim you can enhance the pricing for about $400 for a rearview camera, $550 for a custom color, and $1,400 for special leather upholsteries.
The X5 xDrive35i engine option comes available at $56,000 while the X5 V-8 is given for a hefty $70,000. The release date has not been given till now and we will have to wait a month or two, according to our estimations, to get the official date.
