Driving dynamics & efficiency of the BMW X5.

The dynamics of the BMW X5 will guarantee a fun drive on every journey – during every manoeuvre and at all speeds. On tight bends, the Driver Assistance systems ensure excellent roadholding, be it in the mountains or at high speeds. At the same time, the BMW X5 impresses with outstanding efficiency, thanks to sophisticated aerodynamics, economical engines and numerous BMW EfficientDynamics measures – particularly the BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance with eDrive technology.

The BMW X5 xDrive40e iPerformance images show the new BMW iPerformance Design expected to be available in the second half of 2016.


The control display screens show the new user interface design expected to be available in October 2016.

MAXIMISES THE BENEFITS.Driving dynamics & efficiency of the BMW X5.


    Whether the goal is maximum performance or minimum fuel consumption – for BMW, the focus is always on delivering quintessential BMW driving pleasure. BMW EfficientDynamics is the strategy developed by BMW to minimise fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while simultaneously increasing dynamics and driving pleasure.


    It is a comprehensive technology package that encompasses the engine, energy management and the vehicle concept – and comes with every BMW. The intelligent drive combination of a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine with an electric motor is responsible for the vehicle's increased performance while consuming the same amount of fuel. Optimised aerodynamics contribute to further increased efficiency, as does BMW EfficientLightweight, which simultaneously lowers weight and increases vehicle rigidity by using the right materials for the right parts. Once again, BMW impressively proves its powers of innovation. It is a comprehensive collection of technologies, including an intelligent energy management system and the optional ECO PRO mode, which supports driving that optimises fuel consumption.

    At the peak of its power: discover the unbeatable driving dynamics of the BMW X5.

    The 8-speed Steptronic transmission sets a new benchmark in terms of dynamic performance and efficiency and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics.
    The particularly finely tuned gradation of the gears allows optimum power delivery − from low through to high speeds. This reduces fuel consumption significantly, while enabling you to enjoy increased sporty flair and dynamic performance.
    At high speeds in particular, the additional gears reduce engine speed and therefore both fuel consumption and engine noise. The converter clutch is a contributing factor here − even if you change into manual shift mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides a very high level of shift comfort and reduces noise considerably.

    100 % SPORTY.

    Options such as active steering and the Adaptive Suspension Packages help to boost the sportiness and comfort of your BMW X5. Active steering enables more precise driving and even more agility. When you choose one of the Adaptive Suspension Packages, you opt for more driving comfort, increased dynamics – or for the most effective combination of the two.

    The intelligent BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring optimal traction at all times. xDrive and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) ensure that the BMW remains safe and stable. Controlled via the DSC sensor system, xDrive flexibly and quickly distributes drive power between the axles in order to prevent oversteer or understeer on bends, thereby ensuring outstanding directional stability. Moreover, it guarantees a rapid, safe acceleration even on slippery or steep stretches. In critical road conditions, the DSC doesn't need to intervene as much. Thus, BMW xDrive combines all the advantages of an all-wheel drive system – traction, directional stability and driving safety – with classic BMW agility.


    The entire vehicle design is testament to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. The optimised, aerodynamic front apron and undercarriage feature innovative improvements that reduce air resistance and fuel consumption.

    The ECO PRO mode helps drivers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, depending on their driving style – according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study. Additional functions such as coasting, Route-ahead assistant and ECO PRO route have the potential for an additional five percent reduction in consumption.


    The coasting function decouples the drivetrain from the engine and the vehicle rolls without additional power input. The car "coasts" when the driver takes their foot off the accelerator between 50 and 160 km/h and does not apply the brakes. Based on data from the navigation system, the Route-ahead assistant recognises bends, built-up areas, speed limits and motorway exits, and gives the driver advance tips when to stop accelerating. ECO PRO route shows the most efficient route based on the traffic situation, driving style and road conditions. The on-board computer displays the percentage of fuel that can be saved by driving along the route selected by ECO PRO route.
