Comfort & Convenience
BMW Navigation System with iDrive touchpad Controller
Wherever you're going, get there confidently with the BMW X5 Navigation System with iDrive. Advanced Real Time Traffic Information displays local traffic updates, including delays and alternate routes to keep you one step ahead. The ECO PRO navigation feature directs you to the most fuel-efficient route, while Proactive Driving Assistant lets you know when best to ease off the accelerator to maximize fuel savings. And the easy-to-use iDrive touchpad controller and three-dimensional map displays makes reaching your destination easier and more enjoyable than ever.
Concierge Services with Critical Calling
Wherever you travel, friendly Concierge Services representatives assist you with local restaurant and hotel recommendations, movie times and ticket information, flight arrival and departure gates and times, fuel prices and availability, and much more. You can also get the "Points of Interest" (POI) download, which allows the representative to send addresses and phone numbers to your vehicle. This information can then be transferred to your BMW Navigation system for route guidance, or for calling from your Bluetooth® linked mobile phone.
This driver-assistance system searches for suitable parking spots and then steers your vehicle into them. Simply press the "Park Assistant" button, then drive along potential parking spaces on either side of the road, staying below 22 mph and no more than five feet away. Using ultrasonic sensors integrated into the side indicators, the system searches for and measures parking spaces. When a space at least four feet longer than your vehicle is spotted, it is shown on your Control Display. Shift into reverse and Parking Assistant takes control of steering your vehicle into the selected space; all you have to do is operate the accelerator and brake pedals. The acoustic and visual warnings of Park Distance Control provide assistance to get you and your vehicle efficiently into the space.
Innovative and easy to operate, the Comfort Access system makes it possible to open both the vehicle doors and trunk and start the engine without having to use the car key. The key, even when not in your hand, is automatically recognized upon approaching the car. Once the door has been automatically unlocked, the driver can get in and start the engine by pressing the Start/Stop button. The driver's foot must be on the brake or, with manual transmission, must also depress the clutch in order to start.
Dynamic Damper Control and Rear Axle Air Suspension
Dynamic Damper Control along with the air suspension for the rear axle allows you to adjust to different road conditions for more comfortable driving and transport of cargo. So you can ride relaxed even on the roughest roads.
Part of ConnectedDrive, BMW Apps lets you access social networks, music plug-ins and video playback through your iPhone and Android device, and see them on the display screen (requires Navigation). Tune in to web radio and search for stations from around the globe by name, location or genre, and store your favorite ones on your iPhone so you can take them with you from one vehicle to another. You can access Twitter and Facebook accounts to stay on top of your social media, and enjoy music on-demand with Pandora Radio. And with the GoPro App, you'll even be able to control your GoPro camera using the iDrive system.
iDrive 4.2: Now with touchpad Controller
The new iDrive 4.2 navigation system showcases an optimized menu display with state-of-the-art technologies, like advanced real-time traffic data. And, a new iDrive rotary controller with an integrated touchpad makes it easy for drivers on the go to enter destinations, phone numbers and more.
BMW Mobile Office
BMW Mobile Office, as part of BMW ConnectedDrive, keeps you connected no matter where the road leads by integrating many office functions into the main menu of your vehicle's iDrive screen. You can conveniently organize your daily events, and browse through emails, texts and tasks on the screen or have them read aloud over the audio speakers.
Harman Kardon Surround Sound System
It's a sound experience as remarkable as the BMW driving experience. Unlike traditional stereo systems, the optional Harman Kardon surround sound system uses vehicle-specific equalizing, and a powerful 600W amplifier, to deliver powerful, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth. The result: a scintillating audio performance that pumps the highest definition soundtrack to the open road. The 16-speaker system also includes six tweeters, four mid-range speakers located in the door panels and two mid-range speakers located under the rear shelf space, two bass speakers located under the front seats, one midrange center channel speaker, and one tweeter located in the instrument panel.
Bluetooth® Audio Streaming
Bluetooth® Audio Streaming-available from BMW ConnectedDrive-wirelessly plays the music saved on your Bluetooth®-capable smartphone or MP3 player.
Performance & Efficiency
3.0-Liter, TwinPower Turbo Inline 6-Cylinder Engine, 300 hp
This unique engine combines a twin-scroll TwinPower Turbo, High Precision direct fuel injection, and BMW's Valvetronic variable intake technology that helps the engine "breathe" better. The result: turbo lag is virtually eliminated, while posting one of the most fuel-efficient ratings in its class. The X5 sDrive35i TwinPower Turbo develops maximum output of 300 hp at 5800 rpm. Peak torque of 300-lb-ft kicks in almost immediately at 1200 rpm. It continues to push you back in your seat all the way to 5000 rpm. In just 6.2 seconds* you're easily passing 60-mph - and just as easily surpassing all expectations.
8-Speed STEPTRONIC Sport Automatic Transmission
Prepare for an unprecedented level of vehicle response. The 8-speed STEPTRONIC sport automatic transmission features high internal efficiency, precision, and short shift times for improved gear shifting, more responsive performance and reduced fuel consumption.
Additionally, the transmission features Launch Control, a high-precision traction system that translates engine power into road speed efficiently, launching you from a standstill with breathtaking acceleration.
Driving Dynamics Control
Maintain the highest level of comfort, agility and efficiency in all road conditions with innovative drive train and chassis technologies and optimized driving modes, now including ECO PRO.
With Driving Dynamics Control, you determine which personality of the BMW X5 shines through with the push of a button. We've enhanced each mode so that SPORT driving mode feels more athletic, SPORT+ guarantees maximum performance, and COMFORT+ driving mode gears all of the connected systems - such as Dynamic Damper Control (if equipped) and the transmission - toward ultimate ease of traveling.
And now, the new ECO PRO mode adapts accelerator pedal and gearbox responses while also moderating heating/air-conditioning systems to maximize fuel efficiency. It also takes traffic density, individual driving style and local conditions into account, then offers directions optimized for efficiency and minimal travel time.
Dynamic Performance Control + Active Roll Stabilization
Dynamic Performance Control smoothly distributes power between the rear wheels for ultimate agility and sporty handling. When cornering, the outside wheel receives more power, allowing you to drive "into" curves. At the same time, Active Roll Stabilization minimizes body roll and enables the BMW X5 to transform tight corners into straightaways.
Even when idling, such as at a stop sign, an engine burns fuel. BMW's Auto Start-Stop function enhances fuel efficiency by switching off the engine. (The intelligent electronics system first checks the battery charge level and calculates if other electric systems, like the heated front seats need more energy.) Once the brake pedal is released, the engine starts up again almost instantly. A Start-Stop signal in the display indicates the function is active.
Safety & Security
BMW Assist eCall and TeleServices
In an emergency, BMW Assist eCall, now standard in most BMWs, automatically sends your location and relevant information to police and EMT services, saving critical time when you need it most. Also standard with BMW Teleservices, your BMW knows exactly when the next servicing appointment is coming up and informs you about any maintenance requirements. Your BMW Service Center will call you to arrange an appointment. Wherever you are, your BMW Service Center is at your side.
Active Driving Assistant
Drive more confidently with the camera-based Active Driving Assistant. The BMW X5 includes Lane Departure Warning, which alerts you when you drift lanes with a visible signal and steering wheel vibration. Additionally, Pedestrian and Collision Warning detects hazards on a collision course with the vehicle, and depending on driving conditions, initiates the braking system to reduce vehicle speed and prevent critical situations before they occur.
Displays video images of approaching traffic on the Control Display. Side-view cameras positioned in the front bumpers show traffic approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Top-view camera provides video images of the road alongside the doors, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors. All these cameras come together to generate an incredible bird's-eye view of the vehicle's surrounding environment.
Full Color Head-Up Display
Full Color Head-Up Display projects key information onto the windshield directly in the driver's field of view to minimize distractions. Responsive to light conditions around them, the projections can be easily adjusted using the iDrive Controller. Depending on the vehicle specification and equipped optional features, the display not only shows current speed, but speed limits, navigation instructions, and various warning messages. And now, with a touch of a button on the steering wheel, you can also scroll through music libraries or change radio stations.
Park Distance Control
Eight sensors - four in the front, four in the rear - help you judge how close you are to other vehicles and unseen objects when parking. And in coordination with Surround View, Park Distance Control lets you know if your vehicle can fit in a space before you begin pulling in.
