AWD 4dr 4.8i
Starting at | Starting at 15 MPG City - 21 MPG Highway
The 2008 X5, which is called a 'sports activity vehicle' by BMW, combines some of the best attributes of a sport wagon and an SUV, offering better handling than most SUVs yet some measure of off-road ability and toughness. In the first and second rows, the X5 offers a good, quiet ride as well. As in BMW's sedans, there's also plenty of opportunity to upgrade the X5 with high-tech options.
After a complete redesign for 2007, the BMW X5 returns for 2008 with only a few feature changes. The dynamic stability control system now gets a number of additional safety-oriented features: brake drying, brake stand-by, brake fade compensation, and the start-off assistant. Also for 2008, the xDrive system's graphic display has been upgraded with new colors and typography and improved contrast, and the glove compartment is now larger. The standard sound system has been upgraded to one with 12 speakers, two subwoofers, and new speaker configurations.
BMW's X5 comes in two different models for 2008--the 3.0si, and the 4.8i. The 3.0si is powered by a 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine making 260 horsepower; the 4.8i gets a 350-horsepower, 4.8L V8 engine. Both engines have sophisticated design features, including aluminum and magnesium construction and Valvetronic, which controls and varies valve lift to deliver full power when needed yet otherwise allows increased efficiency and smoothness. The transmission has three different modes--Drive, Sport, and Manual, which lets the driver command gearshifts when desired.
