2022 BMW X5

2022 X5 Photos
The BMW X5 is a five- or seven-seat crossover SUV that excels in comfort, technology, and sophistication. It also offers agility and efficiency with all-wheel drive that's standard in all but the base model; there's an available plug-in hybrid with an all-electric range of 31 miles.

The X5 was redesigned in 2019, so for 2022 there are few changes. It loses wireless phone charging and some touchscreen functions, thanks to the global supply shortage of computer chips.

The available powertrains give the X5 the potential to be graceful or brutal, whatever your desires. There's a turbo-6 with mild-hybrid technology; a plug-in hybrid inline-6 with a motor that enables that 31-mile electric range; or twin-turbo V-8s with three levels of performance. They range in horsepower from a perky 335 hp to an astonishing 617 hp, and in acceleration from 0-60 in a smart 5.3 seconds down to a jowl-twisting 3.8 seconds.

The xDrive40i with AWD is EPA rated at 21 mpg city, 25 highway, 23 combined, on premium fuel. The xDrive45e plug-in hybrid gets the equivalent of 50 mpg when its electric capability is used. The M50i, with a 4.4-liter V-8, gets 16/22/18 mpg. The high- and super-high-performance M and M Competition models get 13/18/15 mpg.

The NHTSA gives the X5 four stars overall. The IIHS gives it a Top Safety Pick; its standard headlights keep it from earning the '+'? designation.

Standard safety equipment includes automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitors. An optional Driving Assistance Professional package adds adaptive cruise control, active lane control, and limited hands-free driving assistance at slow speeds; it costs $1,700, but BMW first requires the purchase of the $1,250 Premium package and $400 four-zone climate control. A surround-view camera system and parking assist cost another $800.
