What's New in the 2020 BMW X5?

An M50i joins the lineup. The 50i models gain Wi-Fi and wireless charging as standard. This is also the first full model year of the entry level sDrive40i rear-wheel drive (RWD) variant. See the 2020 BMW X5 models for sale near you

Which X5 is the Best?

Think seriously about acquiring the most driver assistance features before going for a bigger engine. The entry level inline 6 is perfectly adequate. Anyone looking to lower their emissions might like to wait for the plug-in hybrid version that's expected for 2021. Find a BMW X5 for sale

2020 BMW X5 vs the competition

2020 Acura MDX -- Wonderfully refined. The third-row seat is pretty tight, but the equipment-to-price ratio is appealing.

2020 Audi Q7 -- Lots of space, tech, safety and sophistication.

2020 BMW X6 -- Just in case you didn't need quite so much rear passenger and cargo space, and would prefer something with more "out there" styling. An all-new generation debuts for this year.

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class -- A luxury crossover/SUV with a range of models similar to the X5 and X6. All-new for 2020 and a seriously excellent vehicle.

2020 Porsche Cayenne -- Doesn't have the X5's 3-row versatility, but delivers awesome performance and undeniable Porsche cachet.

2020 Volvo XC90 -- Not particularly a driver's machine, but comes with its own cool factor and lots of tech. Integrated child booster seats are available.

Used Land Rover Range Rover -- There's nothing like a Range Rover, and a pristine low-mileage example can be acquired for the price of a new X5. Check out Land Rover's certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
