2011 BMW X5 Review

BMW continues its trend of producing impressive luxury SUVs through the 2011 X5. Following in the footsteps of the 2010 version, the new 2011 BMW X5 features an improved design with an exterior that is sure to make heads turn. The interior has also seen improvements and now boasts impressive legroom allowing the car to easily handle seven passengers through its third row option.

Aside from the subtle but equally impressive changes on the design, the engineers of BMW have also made some revision to the engines. The result is a more economical vehicle, especially on the gasoline engines. The base vehicle features a 3-liter, 6-cylinder engine with automatic transmission and fuel capacity of 23mpg on a motorway.
When it comes to handling, customers familiar with the BMW brand always expect the best – and this model is no exception. Smooth transmissions between gears with reliability in handling are only some of the features drivers will enjoy with the 2011 BMW X5.
Of course, there are a few drawbacks for the X5 and among them is the iDrive controls. While this is a revolutionary method of controlling the vehicle, drivers will have a hard time dealing with iDrive because of its learning requirement. Another drawback for the vehicle is its price. Even though it’s a bit more affordable than the 2010 model, it’s still more expensive than other luxury SUVs offering similar features.
But aside from the iDrive dashboard and price, the BMW X5 is an impressive vehicle. Maneuverability, fuel economy and power are just some of its most impressive features and the vehicle is sure to persuade many customers to purchase.
