Four generations in, the BMW X5 received a refresh for the 2019 model year and stands as one of the more desirable luxury SUVs on the market. Often referred to as a "sport activity vehicle," the 2019 BMW X5 has an athletic build and is packed with a ton of comforts and technology features. True to its heritage, this BMW SUV handles like a sports car and sounds like one too, with one of two exciting 2019 engine options: the 335-horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder engine in the sDrive40i and xDrive40i or the 456-horsepower twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine in the xDrive50i.

If you're looking for a used car, you might want to consider stepping up from the base model to get more features. That said, the base model sDrive40i is anything but basic. The list of standard features on the 2019 X5 is long, including items such as Apple CarPlay, heated seats, a panoramic moonroof, Comfort Access™ keyless entry, and a variety of driver aids. All X5 models are also available with a number of packages that add additional features to the vehicle, designated as Convenience, Premium, and Executive. Each pre-packaged option adds some of BMW's most popular features; 2019 X5 models that are equipped with the convenience package, as an example, come with wireless device charging, four-zone climate control, and satellite radio, among other things.
Distracted driving is never good, and automobile manufacturers have been adding features for years to help minimize driver distractions. While most late-model cars come standard with a Bluetooth® interface to allow hands-free phone calls, the 2019 BMW X5 takes things a step further. Available as an option on all 2019 X5 models is a Gesture Control™ feature. When equipped with this feature, the BMW X5 can recognize five distinct hand gestures from a dash-mounted detection field, allowing the driver to change radio stations, adjust volume, accept or reject phone calls, and access a 360-degree view around the SUV, all with a flick of the wrist.
Road trips or commutes to the office with multiple occupants can be tricky when it comes to climate control. You might want it cool while your passenger likes it hot and it's never fun fighting over the temperature control. Luckily, the 2019 BMW X5 is a cool companion when it comes to keeping its occupants comfortable. Dual-zone climate control is standard, allowing the two front passengers to adjust the temperature to their liking. Four-zone climate control is also an option across the board, extending that temperature customization to four separate passengers.
The 2019 BMW X5 has its bases covered when it comes to hands-free driving, and that convenience is extended to getting in and out of the X5 as well. Standard across all models of the 2019 BMW X5 is a power liftgate, which makes loading up the rear cargo area with luggage, groceries, or golf clubs a breeze, even when you have your hands full. Also available on the 2019 X5 as an option are soft-close automatic doors—when equipped with this feature, the X5 closes a partially closed door the rest of the way with the aid of a small electric motor.
All-wheel drive comes standard on all BMW X5s for 2019 when in xDrive trims. 2019 X5s are standard with hill descent control and dynamic traction control, allowing the X5 to navigate through inclement weather with ease. An off-road package is also available which adds air suspension and multiple driving modes that can be selected based upon desired ride height and terrain. Heated seats are standard and if your inner Goldilocks needs your beverage temperature to be just right, heated and cooled cupholders are available as an option as well. 2019 BMW X5s that are equipped with the off-road package also come standard with front and rear differential locks for maximum off-road traction.

The BMW X3 is a great choice if you're looking for a luxury SUV that has plenty of versatility in a more medium-sized wrapper. The BMW X3 was redesigned both in 2015 and more recently in 2018. The latter update featured interior upgrades, such as a 10.25-inch touch screen that can be equipped with the same Gesture Control technology available on the X5. 2018 also introduced a high-performance M variant of the X3, designated as the BMW X3 M40i, which upgrades the engine from a turbocharged four-cylinder to a 3.0L twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine that is rated at 355 horsepower. Staying true to BMW nomenclature, the X3 can be had with rear-wheel drive in sDrive configuration or all-wheel drive when in xDrive configuration. The M40i (all model years) is standard with all-wheel drive.
The BMW X6 is another unique SUV that takes a more coupe-like approach to its styling and driving habits. While it is an SUV, the sloping rear roof-line and trunk-like rear cargo area create a very sports-car-like aesthetic. The X6 is a good choice for those that like the look of the X4 but would prefer a bit more size and appreciate the twin-turbo 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine as a standard option. From its inception in 2008, the BMW X6 is also available with a twin-turbo eight-cylinder engine for those that really have the need for speed. Also standard across the board on the X6 is the BMW xDrive all-wheel-drive system, giving the driver an extra boost of confidence with all that power, regardless of the weather conditions.
