2021 BMW X5 Review
The 2021 BMW X5 gives you the space and class you are looking for in a SUV. It runs on a 3-liter twin power turbo engine that powers an 8-speed automatic transmission. The engine comes standard with auto-start and stop.
Also, the transmission has a driver-selectable mode and Steptronic Sequential Shift. The controls are on the steering wheel to make it easier to drive. The wheels are standard 19-inch.
The driver-selectable mode makes it easier to select the best route for the weather or road. The sunroof for the first and second rows will be good for pleasant weather such as spring and summer. The backseat has split function to give you extra cargo room. The driver and passenger seats are heated and are powered for 12-way adjustability.
There are two LCD screens in the front. The one behind the steering wheel is the vehicle command and the other one is for entertainment and navigation. 10 speakers and hi-fi sound system surrounds you and give you the best audio experience.
A light touch of the accelerator pedal starts the fun in the BMW X5 xDrive40i. Even at low revs, the turbocharger with indirect intercooling is able to provide this impressive torque. And with every gear change, the optional 8-speed Sport automatic transmission unleashes maximum dynamics, efficiency and sheer driving pleasure.
