The Variety and Options Make the 2017 BMW X5 A Stellar Midsize Family Hauler

Even vehicles that offer utility as their prime selling point should make a strong impression, and in that, the BMW X5 delivers. Not only does its trademark double-kidney grille and angel-eyed headlamps stand out at the curb and in parking lots, it offers gobs of fun behind the wheel thanks to its RWD-based platform. When it comes to a marriage of performance and function, there’s plenty to love.

The X5 comes in four flavors based on powertrain—35i, 35d, 40e, and 50i—with xDrive all-wheel drive standard on all models save for the base. Although being able to choose between a gas engine, plug-in hybrid, and diesel may seem like a recipe ripe for hampering performance, none of these models give up their fun-to-drive characters. The X5 also comes with a variety of impressive standard options, such as the lauded iDrive 5.0 system, a panoramic moon roof, navigation, rear view camera, and more. Packages and options are available in a virtual arsenal, and consist of luxury, performance, technology, and driver assistance options.

To see just how functional, fun, and luxurious the X5 SAV is, we invite you to check it out. Browse our new BMW inventory to get a feel for what we have in stock, and then schedule a test drive with our Urbandale, IA location.
