The G05 BMW X5 is a mid-size luxury SUV produced by German automaker BMW. It is the fourth, and current, generation of the BMW X5. It was launched in 2018 as the successor to the F15 X5.[7] Sales of the X5 started in November 2018.[8] The X5 M and X5 M Competition performance models were revealed on 1 October 2019.[9]

Development and launch[edit]

Information on the G05 X5 was released online on 6 June 2018.[10]

The G05 X5 uses BMW's Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform also found in the G11 7 Series and G30 5 Series.[11] It features a five-link rear suspension and is also available with four-wheel steering or adjustable air suspension that can be raised or lowered by 40 mm (2 in).[12] Compared to its predecessor, the G05 X5 is 36 mm (1 in) longer, 66 mm (3 in) wider, and 19 mm (1 in) shorter in height.[13] All petrol models feature particulate filters while all diesel models feature AdBlue injection that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions.[14]

Almost all regions feature xDrive all-wheel drive, but a rear wheel drive sDrive model is available in the USA.[15][16] The xDrive50i model is available outside the European markets, while the European markets will get the M50i models. For the 2020 model year the M50i became available to the North American market in replacement to the xDrive50i model. [17]

In August 2019, BMW revealed an armoured variant called X5 Protection VR6, which can withstand attacks from AK-47 bullets.[18]


Standard equipment includes LED headlights, electronically controlled dampers, electric and heated sports seats, and two 12.3-inch displays for the instrument panel and iDrive system.[19] G05 X5 models are also available with laser headlights, heated and cooled cupholders, a panoramic sunroof with LED patterns, and a Microsoft Office 365 and Skype for Business subscription with over-the-air updates.[20] A new Digital Key system also enables a smartphone to be used as a keyfob to lock or unlock the car via NFC.[21]

xLine and M Sport packages are also offered alongside the standard trim and feature different body styling and exclusive exterior paint colours and upholstery choices.[22] xLine models feature 19-inch alloy wheels with aluminium exterior trim, while M Sport models feature 20-inch alloy wheels with high-gloss trim.[23]

For the 2020 model year, the BMW iDrive 7.0 infotainment system was introduced to replace the previous iDrive 6.0 system. The iDrive 7.0 system now included standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, which was previously optional with the iDrive 6.0 system (the iDrive 6.0 system did not offer Android Auto). The iDrive 7.0 system also integrates the BMW Assistant feature, with hands-free voice activation via the phrase, "Hey BMW".

M Performance Parts can be fitted to 25-45 models with the M Sport trim and all M50 models. These include M rims, a rear carbon fibre winglet, side skirts, carbon fibre mirrors, a front carbon fibre winglet, a sport steering wheel and carbon fibre diffuser.

The X5 M has its own M Performance Parts. These include a sport steering wheel, roof spoiler extension and carbon fibre kidney grilles.
