Loads of room and room to load: Transporting heavy or bulky objects is no problem in the BMW X5 – thanks to a variety of practical and space-saving features.
Both on the inside and on the outside, the BMW X5 is extremely versatile. For example, with the dual-section tailgate: The upper tailgate swings up high and allows smaller, lighter objects to be conveniently stowed and removed. The lower tailgate creates a platform flush with the load compartment floor when open, allowing luggage to be set down before being loaded.
The tow bar can not only bear a load of between 2.7 and 3.5 t (depending on the engine fitted), but also offers a high degree of safety. The trailer stability control system recognises when the trailer is swaying dangerously and activates the brakes of the towing vehicle and the trailer in order to restore stability quickly.
Versatility is just as prominent in the spacious interior, too. The rear seats can be folded down in a ratio of 40:20:40, ensuring that the space available can be maximised for passengers and luggage alike. The Storage compartment package improves the vehicle's practicality with many intelligent solutions for storing small and large items. This includes a glasses compartment, as well as hooks, nets and lashing rails with eyelets in the luggage compartment.
Feel-good factor guaranteed: comfort and functions in the BMW X5.
BANG & OLUFSEN HIGH-END SURROUND SOUND SYSTEM.
Equipped with the new Dirac Dimensions signal processing system, the Bang & Olufsen high-end surround system provides a vibrant open space for the generation of a superb sound.
There are 16 speakers with a music output of 1,200 watts including an automatically extending centre speaker on the dashboard carrier. This speaker is a mid-range unit featuring Acoustic Lens Technology for consistent sound quality on all seats.
You can choose between two sound settings: "Studio" for a flawlessly authentic sound and "Expanded" for a subjective expansion of the acoustic space. The lighting scheme of individual speaker covers makes for an integrated audiovisual experience.
The Bang & Olufsen high-end surround sound system is only available with the equipment TV function or Navigation system Professional.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL INSTRUMENT DISPLAY.
The Multifunctional Instrument Display with black panel technology and a screen diagonal of 10.25" provides a highly impressive visualisation of the driving experience.
At the same time, it helps the driver to concentrate on the road ahead by displaying relevant information and prevents distraction.
Three different modes and their specific characteristics – each of which have their own colour scheme and graphic style – can be displayed in the instrument cluster: Comfort, ECO PRO and Sport modes. While Comfort Mode largely retains the appearance familiar up to now, blue tones dominate the display in ECO PRO Mode, in which the new EfficientDynamics and Bonus Range displays aid the driver in achieving the most efficient driving style possible. Sport Mode, in contrast, is recognisable by its red colours, and includes performance information.
The Multifunctional Instrument Display also allows navigational information to be displayed, including tips from the Route-Ahead Assistant, as well as lists from the entertainment and telephone functions.
Regardless of where you sit in the BMW X5, you’ll always be in the premium seats – thanks to the elevated seating position at the front and the seemingly unlimited flexibility at the rear.
The driver and front-seat passenger in the BMW X5 can enjoy not only the X typical elevated seating position, but also the optional comfort seats . The upper backrest segment, backrest width, thigh support and headrest height can all be adjusted electrically in order to reduce tenseness and fatigue and to increase general seating comfort.
The rear seats can be folded down in 40:20:40 split, in accordance with how many passengers or luggage itemsneed to be transported. Luggage space can be extended up to a generous 1,870 litres.
The optional comfort seats at the rear have particularly comfortable upholstery and are individually adjustable in several ways. For example, the backrest tilt angle of the two outer seats can be set to six different positions covering a total range of ten degrees. The comfort seats can also be shifted by 80 millimetres forwards or backwards in a 60:40 split. This allows for more knee or luggage space if required. The rear backrest can also be folded down in its entirety in a 40:20:40 split.
Even more flexibility is offered by the third row of seats, consisting of two individually foldable seats that face the direction of travel.
REAR-SEAT ENTERTAINMENT PROFESSIONAL.
The very best entertainment.
Rear-seat entertainment Professional provides excellent entertainment for rear passengers thanks to two separate colour displays. An additional Blu-ray player or an HDMI connection in the rear even makes it possible to play different films on both of the 10.2" monitors in a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels.
They can also watch television programmes, surf the internet, access other online features (depending on the mobile phone contract), use an MP3 player, have fun with a game console, etc. The sound is emitted via loudspeakers or headphones (can also be used with wireless headphones). Rear-seat entertainment Professional can be operated conveniently via remote control. Passengers in the rear can even access navigation functions for route planning and suggestions (if a navigation system is featured).
