2008 BMW X5 3.0si AWD 4dr SUV, Pompano Beach, FL AUTO HOUSE FLORIDA 2303 West McNab road unit 3, Pompano Beach, FL 33069 (561) 285-1448 "The BMW X5 puts emphasis on the sport half of the sport-utility equation. While it offers more utility than ever, it comes up short in cargo-passenger flexibility compared to many luxury SUVs. As opposed to hauling acres of equipment and gear, the X5 provides the essential equipment enthusiast drivers expect when they want to enjoy the art of driving as much as they're able. Indeed, BMW shuns the SUV tag entirely, describing the X5 with it own copyrighted label: Sport Activity Vehicle, or SAV. This may be tacit acknowledgement that the X5 can't tow or carry as much stuff as some of its competitors, or it may simply highlight the X5's strength. That strength is its ability to get down the road in the step-on-the gas, shove-through-corners fashion of genuine sport sedan. BMW focused on improving utility for 2007, when redesign stretched the X5 by seven full inches and delivered substantial increase in rear seat legroom. For 2008, X5 upgrades have re-focused on sport. Both the six-cylinder and V8 engines are new, with revised six-speed automatic transmission. The V8 in the BMW X5 4.8i increases in displacement, while the 3.0-liter inline six is an all-new design, with substantial increase in power. These are BMW engines, which means plenty of usable torque and turbine-like smoothest. The 4.8i might be the chest-beater, but the BMW X5 3.0si still delivers the kind of response we expect in sport sedan, and it shouldn't leave owners pining for the V8. The X5 is styled in obvious BMW fashion, only taller, with traditional Bimmer cues like the twin-kidney grille and dual-beam headlight clusters. Like it or not, its look and badges are often enough to get the X5 one of the high-profile valet spots at trendy club. Inside, the X5 offers plenty of room for five, with nice, rich finish and nearly all the bells and whistles one expects in high-line luxury sedan. The back seat is more than roomy enough for two adults, three in pinch, and there's enough cargo space in back for two-day family outing. With all seats lowered for maximum cargo capacity, the X5 offers less space than virtually every competitor, from Acura to Volvo. It's not class leader in fuel economy, either. Sport in the X5 context does not mean off-roading. Its all-wheel-drive system was developed for slippery roads and sporty driving characteristics, rather than sand dunes or steep, rutted hillsides. Yet It can tow substantial 6,000 pounds, and the all-wheel-drive can be great friend in blizzard. The X5 gets high marks for safety. It performs well in both government and insurance industry crash tests, and it has been designated one of the Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Besides the full complement of front, side and head protection airbags, the X5 offers some of the most advanced active safety systems available. These include anti-lock brakes that periodically sweep the discs dry in rainstorms and electronic stability control that works with the all-wheel drive system and even to steering to manage skids. Still, the X5's calling card is its driving dynamics. Think of the X5 as Series sedan with more headroom and bit more cargo space.' J.P.
