2016 model year changes
The biggest change to the X5 lineup in 2016 is the addition of the X5 xDrive40e plug-in hybrid model. The xDrive40e includes enough power for trips of up to 13 miles of electric-powered driving. Quick trips to the grocery store can thus be achieved without using any gas. Despite the eco-friendly nature of the xDrive40e, it is still claimed to hit 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds, making it both quick as well as environmentally friendly.

Special features for 2016
BMW's X5 offers seating for seven with high-tech on- and off-road capabilities. With great styling as well as a host of refinements throughout its development, the package is hard to ignore. Although it ranks among the more expensive SUVs in its class, it's a strong competitor, offering a wide range of options not found on the Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350 or Mercedes M-Class. The X5 M competes with the top-of-the-line GL-Class from Mercedes and the Cayenne GTS from Porsche. The BMW offers intense performance for less money than either without giving up comfort and capability both on- and off-road.
