2008 BMW X5 Review

Designed for your every need including the need to fit seven people the 2008 BMW X5. BMW introduces a whole new vehicle category to the world: the Sport Activity Vehicle. The 2008 BMW X5 3.0si’s inline six-cylinder generates 260 horse power and 225 pound feet of torque. The all-new 2007 BMW X5 4.8i boasts an impressive 350 horses and maximum torque of 350 foot-pounds. And yet thanks to equally powerful technology the engine is also more fuel-efficient. The rest of the SAV didn’t go overlooked. For the first time the X5 offers the convenience of a third-row seat so it’s as comfortable for seven people as it is capable at hauling cargo. Enjoy ventilated leather seats four-zone climate control and a rear seat entertainment system. It’s the perfect combination of pleasure and performance. Other Dynamic features include the Head-Up Display an active safety feature that projects essential information as a virtual image in the driver's line of vision. BMW’s xDrive all-wheel-drive system enhances the all-new X5’s safe powerful driving performance. The 2008 BMW X5 with room for seven we have expanded on a great idea!
