BMW X5 - Features and Benefits of an SUV with a drive like a sedan.

2012 BMW X5 35i Sport Activity

The BMW X5 is an SUV that drives more like a sedan. It is a solid vehicle that also handles well in the snow. The luxury leather interior is comfortable, smooth and classy. All preferences can be programmed on each driver's key fob - temperature and climate controls, seat position, dashboard lights, etc. Features like seat warmers, heated steering wheel, electric headrest controls all ways, automatic windshield wipers and more that add to the luxury feel. It is a reliable vehicle that hasn't needed any major repairs.

Reliable luxury family vehicle.

2012 BMW X5 35i Premium

I love this vehicle. It is very reliable. Well made. It is sturdy and feels safe. The exterior is not flimsy like most vehicles these days. Solid exterior. The interior is comfortable. It has tons of features to keep you connected to today's technology without losing focus while driving. While having tons of features it is also easy to maintain and keep clean and looking good. It is easy to drive and park yet has plenty of room for my family and storage room for large grocery purchase etc.

Great luxury sports car like SUV

2012 BMW X5 35i Sport Activity

Love how the X5 drives and handles. Like a sports car but with more room! I have the sport and premium package. There is a built in DVD player for the backseat so it keeps my kids busy and not whiny. I also have the 3rd row seating, it's very small but a great option for extra passengers when needed. I have cooled and heated seats and they work great. Have an issue now with the automatic trunk closing button not working, the trunk door is very heavy to close without the button working.
