    BMW X5 xDrive30d:: Week with Review | CarAdvice

    All-wheel drive is available, not standard. The X5 offers broad versatility, with a variety of powertrains, trims, and packages. It seats five in warm ambiance, or seven with the optional third-row seat. Which is quite small, so the ambiance back there might not be so warm. Base engine is the 3. Its horsepower zooms it to 60 miles per hour in 6. Go for the X5 xDrive50i model, using a twin-turbo 4. Choose the X5 xDrive35d diesel and take 6. It uses a turbocharged 2. Its all-electric range is 13 miles.

    There are a ton of optional safety systems, if you want an Active Driving Assistant, which is what the main package is called. The X5 is sculpted with grace, as heft is sliced away. A tapered roofline and low beltline rise from the front fenders to the LED taillamps, to give it a big of a wedge and sport wagon looks like the X3.

    Functional scoops steer air to the wheels and brakes. However, the front end seems overwrought, with too many lines crossing the nose. The kidney grille is pushed out, and the air intake just below the grille looks like a small smirk to us.

    The headlights are high and nicely detailed, with LED lamps available. Inside, the X5 departs from the cookie-cutter BMW horizontal dashboard and instrument layout, with another layer of dash that merges at the doors, trimmed standard with poplar wood. This serves to tone down the otherwise monolithic bulge.

    Brown Nappa leather looks nice, an option over the standard black leatherette. Other leather colors include ivory white, mocha, and a reddish brown. Dakota leather comes with the xDrive50i, optional on other models. Comfort in the front seats is less than perfect because of flatness there.

    The rear gate operates in two pieces, bottom dropping like a pickup truck tailgate and top glass like a minivan. Navigation, standard on most models, is ruled by the iDrive controller with a touch-write surface and BMW Apps, a connectivity suite. There are three available trims: Luxury Line with bright metallic touches, xLine with blacked-out grille and trim, and M Sport with an aero kit and bigger wheels.

    We got good seat time in British Columbia in the X5, at least in the xDrive35d diesel and xDrive50i with the powerful V8. We drove from the city of Vancouver into the mountains to the Olympic ski village, and felt immediately comfortable with the rhythm of the 35d turbodiesel.

    Its low-range torque shoots it responsively into holes in city traffic, before it settles into a fairly silent jog on the highway, with little diesel noise in the transitions. This is where the seamless paddle-shifting 8-speed transmission in all models comes in.

    The modes set the transmission shift points and snap, throttle response, and steering quickness and effort. With the optional Active Steering, the ratio varies depending on the speed and cornering forces.
