The 2019 BMW X5 is here to replace that aging family SUV The 2019 BMW X5 requires $60,700 to be permanently parked in your driveway 2019 BMW X5 Starts at $61,695 What’s new Besides the complete redesign, which takes a more conservative “don’t fix what ain’t broke” approach to avoid alienating its current and strong customer base, the new fourth-generation X5 actually grows in size. Its wheelbase is larger by 1.6 inches, while the overall length of the X5 increases by 1.1 inches. Width also gets a boost by 2.6 inches while overall height jumps by an inch. BMW says the new design offers the 2019 BMW X5 a more “muscular appearance,” but to us, it just looks exactly the same as the old one, except slightly bigger and sleeker. The obvious result from the increase in size is a considerable bump in space for the interior, meaning more space for people and their things. “The BMW X5 embodies the origins of the BMW X family and, in its fourth generation, sends out its most powerful message yet in terms of presence and modernity,” Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president of BMW Group Design, said in a statement. “It defines a new X design language — robust, clear and precise.” New optional “off-road package” The new 2019 BMW X5 boasts a whole range of new technologies. For instance, there is a new optional “off-road package.” When equipped, it adds an upgraded air suspension setup at both axles and a new rear locking differential, for those who feel like tearing up some paths less traveled. The package also equips bespoke underbody protection in the form of skid plates to avoid damaging the car when crawling over hard obstacles. It also adds special programming modes to the electronic driver aids, allowing certain settings for the suspension, traction and stability control, xDrive all-wheel-drive system, transmission control, and throttle response, not otherwise available in X5s without the off-road package. Introduction of “BMW Live Cockpit Professional” Also debuting for the first time is BMW’s new “Live Cockpit Professional,” incorporating two very large, high-definition 12.3-inch diagonally measured LCD screens, replacing the traditional analog gauge instrument cluster and the previous model’s iDrive 5.0 center screen. Dubbed as the next-generation and seventh rendition of BMW’s love-it-or-hate-it infotainment and central control setup, the “Live Cockpit Professional” setup allows drivers to access everything from the sat-nav to BMW Connected services, and other fancy in-car functions. For computing, the system utilizes a hard drive-based multimedium system with an additional 20 GB of storage memory for music and other personalized settings, all accessible via two USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity. And for the first time, all of BMW’s Connected Services will be bundled in a single “Connected Package Professional,” incorporating remote services, concierge services, on-street parking information, and real-time traffic information — all of which are standard on the new X5. Familiar power- and drivetrains Under the hood of the all-new fourth-generation 2019 BMW X5 is the usual and familiar TwinPower turbocharged 3.0-liter gasoline inline-six, good for 335 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque. For those not wanting to give up any serious performance can opt for the significantly more powerful TwinPower turbocharged 4.4-liter V8. Although BMW has always offered an eight-cylinder option for the X5, this latest V8 is significantly revised with various upgrades. The 4.4-liter displacement remains the same as the outgoing eight, but engineers relocated the turbochargers to the valley of the V8, rather than mounting them outboard, for better performance, efficiency, and packaging. New heat plates are added to aid thermal shielding in the crankcase and cylinder head, and the ignition system is new from the ground up, improving the engine’s Auto Start-Stop function. The result is 456 horsepower, up from 444 for the outgoing V8-powered X5, while torque remains the same at around 480 pound-feet. Both engines still get the same eight-speed ZF-sourced automatic that we have come accustomed to over the past few years. BMW says the V8 can sprint to 60 in just 4.6 seconds while the six-cylinder version isn’t much of a slouch either, taking only 5.3 seconds.

2018 BMW X3
A popular crossover becomes a more convincing BMW.
Buyers’ wild-eyed enthusiasm for compact-luxury SUVs has put the BMW X3 on a trajectory to overtake the X5 and ultimately the 3-series as the brand’s best seller. The model has undergone a redesign for 2018, which sees it get slightly larger—not surprising given that the X1 is on hand, soon to be joined by the new X2, for buyers seeking something smaller. The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well.
Chassis tuning like BMWs of old, improved interior, plenty of passenger and cargo space.
Imprecise variable-ratio steering, goofy electronic shifter, the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder.
As before, the X3 is offered with four or six cylinders under the hood, both engines bolstered by a turbocharger. Their configuration and displacement are the same, but both engines are new to the model. Although the 30i designation suggests that BMW’s 3.0-liter inline-six is present, it actually has a 2.0-liter inline-four. (The 28i was the previous four-cylinder X3). The six-cylinder version has been elevated to M Performance status and is now badged X3 M40i. Both models come with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive.
The new 2.0-liter sees horsepower increase from 240 to 248, while the torque peak falls slightly, from 260 lb-ft to 258. The B46 powerplant’s output is nothing extraordinary, but the twin-scroll turbo effectively masks any signs of lag, making for precise and predictable throttle response. This engine punches above its weight in other applications (330i, 530i), but here it feels a tad overmatched. There’s nothing to criticize in the nature of its power delivery or its pairing with the eight-speed, but it’s a far cry from the M40i’s silken and muscular inline-six, which boasts 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. BMW’s turbo six is an engine from the gods, and the M40i feels as quick as a Porsche Macan GTS.
With either engine, the eight-speed automatic, unfortunately, is controlled via BMW’s annoying and unintuitive electronic shifter that is spreading throughout the lineup. We can’t fault the transmission’s behavior, though, which is smooth and responsive. Plus, standard paddle shifters are on hand should the driver want to take control. The X3 30i earns EPA fuel-economy ratings of 22 mpg city and 29 highway, both increases of 1 mpg over the outgoing X3 28i. The city number falls between those of the Audi Q5 (23 mpg) and the all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz GLC300 (21 mpg), while the BMW’s highway figure tops both competitors’. The six-cylinder X3 M40i also manages increases of 1 mpg over its predecessor in both EPA measures, with ratings of 20/27 mpg city/highway.
More encouragingly, the X3 chassis suffers none of the float or sloppiness that plagues much of the recent BMW lineup. The 30i we drove was fitted with the Dynamic Handling package ($1400), which brought adaptive dampers, Variable Sport Steering, M Sport brakes, and a fourth driving mode—Adaptive—in addition to Eco Pro, Sport, and the default Comfort. Even Comfort mode doesn’t have the wallow we’ve seen in BMWs of late; the X3 is plenty capable in corners. Sport tightens the reins noticeably, which is fine where the roads are glass smooth but might be too much when they’re not. The M40i starts out with a firmer suspension, and our example added the adaptive dampers (a stand-alone option that’s $1000 on the 30i and $700 on the M40i). The net result is that this is a rare modern BMW that doesn’t require you to switch it out of Comfort mode and into Sport the minute you turn it on. The M40i’s body control is exemplary, and even its standard Variable Sport Steering is not overboosted. The variable steering is optional on the X3 30i, however, and there we’d be inclined to skip it. In the lower-spec model, it fails to build effort as you wind on more lock, instead seeming to increase assist; switching to Sport mode increases overall effort, masking this behavior.
Luxury and Practicality
The X3’s starting price has increased by $2400, mostly because there’s no rear-drive version anymore. (Compared with the previous all-wheel-drive model, the new X3’s price sees a $400 increase.) The X3 30i opens at $43,445—versus $42,475 for the Q5 and $43,045 for the GLC 4Matic, its two most obvious competitors—whereas the X3 M40i starts at $55,295. The new X3 is a well-rounded performer, particularly the M40i, and it also is now a better ambassador for its brand. That’s a good thing, given its increasingly visible role
