2012 BMW X5 Review

The 2012 BMW X5 – a vehicle that stirs the performance-loving soul. Yes it’s on-road performance is something to behold. Choose the 3.0 liter 6 cylinder engine or the 400 horsepower twin-turbo V8 in the xDrive 50i. With built-in features like an iPod interface privacy glass and package option for cold weather technology and more the X5 will be the first SAV that personally caters to you. All 7 of you. Life demands flexibility. So we’ve designed the X5 to be as comfortable as it is capable of hauling cargo. Not only is there an option of third-row seating with easy access but the seats fold flat for optimal cargo capacity. The 2012 BMW X5 shines on the pavement with its agility responsive acceleration emphasis on safety and luxury appointments. The 2012 BMW X5 – for every path even those without a road.
