New BMW X5 Quotes

Performance

Although there is one petrol engine available in the X5 range, diesel engines will be the best performers, and in particular the 3.0-litre 245bhp six-cylinder model due to its eight-speed automatic gearbox. For sheer speed there is the X5 M with its 555bhp is capable of reaching 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds, but it is entry-level 3.0-litre that makes the most sense. Its clearest rival is the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, which although is better for off-road driving it is slower and does the 0-60mph run in 6.8 seconds. Fitted with impressive hydraulics, the X5 is well balanced and has continuously adjusting suspension to take corners with ease, feel the easy handling of the X5 by booking a test drive now at askaprice.com.

Running Costs

The entry-level sDrive25d is the most frugal in the range as its rear-wheel drive means that it will average a return of 50.4mpg and it emits 149g/km of CO2. Swapping to four-wheel drive will drop the fuel economy to 48.7mpg which is still good considering the size and performance of the car in general. However, the Range Rover Sport is a much less economical rival to the X5 as at its best it will return 37.7mpg and has 199g/km of CO2 emissions. Similarly the Sport has a starting price at around £51,000 which makes the X5 the more affordable and economical choice with its starting price at £42,590.

Equipment

The standard SE trim features 18" alloy wheels, self-levelling air suspension, ESP, Hill Start Assist, front and rear parking sensors and Xenon headlights.
