BMW X5 Mighty SUV Drenched in Luxury
BMW has always been my favorite luxury car brand. After introducing the high end luxury SUV car concept to the world 15 years back, BMW came with the all new model in the year 2014. This third generation model underwent revolutionary design changes inside and out. I was in dire need of a luxury SUV, I zeroed in for on the then newly launched X5, Freelander and Audi Q7. My requirement was to buy a rugged luxury SUV that can take me to long journeys of Himalayas with outstation trips every couple of months. So, I finally decided to go for BMW X5 for a whole lot of reasons. I already took the test drive several times and I will share what I loved the most about this car. First thing; the design, it is absolutely jaw dropping with aggressive front fascia which looked contemporary in every sense. The kidney shaped grille, LED headlamps and the 18-inch alloy wheels always makes the presence felt on the road. The ride and handling is very comfortable since I am writing this review after just coming back from Spiti in Himachal Pradesh. The inline 6-cylinder turbo diesel motor produces 258 PS and 560Nm of max torque which plasters a big smile on my face every time I get the car out for excursion. The engine comes paired to ZF 8-speed automatic transmission which can also be controlled by steering mounted paddle shifters. The love the way engine roars with a nice exhaust note. And you won't believe, the car manages fuel efficiency of about 15kmpl on highways if driven moderately under 1500 rpm. Riding on the smooth roads even at high speeds is quite agile. The electric steering is light on hands and the chassis works brilliantly in harmony with the new rear air suspension. Coming to the comfort level, the car comes with every creature comfort feature you can think of in this car such as 10.3 inch iDrive touchscreen infotainment, dual zone climate control, leather upholstery, power lumbar support, ambient lighting, foldable third row seat and chilled storage box among many others. The seats are all draped in leather which is surely a rich experience of owning such a car. The 5-star rating with multiple airbags is surely the bang for the buck. Overall, the car is wonderful SUV soaked in luxury and catches the attention wherever it goes. After driving it for over 6,000 kilometers I can say this is one of the brilliant cars that have come out of the stable of BMW.
