2020 BMW X3 & X5
2020 BMW X3 & X5
BMW proves you truly can have it all in a vehicle, from a stunning luxurious design to unbridled performance to the height of modern technology, and the 2020 BMW X3 & X5 are shining examples of this watermark. The BMW X3 provides compact 4x4 capability, maintaining athleticism and style whether it’s cruising urban streets or conquering rural terrain. Setting the standard for what a luxury crossover should look and act like, the BMW X5 is a segment-leader that represents everything that is refined BMW elegance. Come visit Georgian BMW at our Barrie, ON dealership and explore our top-selling mid-size SUVs, the BMW X3 & BMW X5.
One look at the X3 is all it takes to get a deep understanding of its commanding presence through each one of its striking design features. Based around strong haunches and gorgeous curves that connect its bold front to its slight rear, this is a crossover SUV that maintains a sleek look while still looming large. Its adaptive LED headlights are your guide to wherever adventure takes you, with cornering and daytime running lights and variable light control for the best illumination of the road ahead. The smooth elegance continues inside, with fine-detailed surface elements that boasts its unbeatable style, while there’s still always more than enough room to shepherd your passenger or cargo.
Performance & Efficiency
Led ahead through the BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder diesel engine, the X3 offers up all the power you could want, while simultaneously making it incredibly efficient at the same time. That’s the turbocharger (with variable turbine geometry common rail direct injection) at work to balance this high-tech functionality. This all spells out 248 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque produced from this peppy 4x4, impressive wherever it needs to be. BMW xDrive, the intelligent all-wheel drive of the vehicle, is a starmarking feature of the brand, one that provides smooth driving even when the terrain underneath isn’t.
As gorgeous and powerful as the 2020 X3 is, so is its eye for only the height of modern technology. The entire suite of connective elements is designed to make it easier for you to operate than ever before, and without diverting your attention from the road. BMW voice and gesture control allows you to command the systems with your voice or just the movement of your hand. BMW Head-up Display adds to the features that keep your eyes on the road by displaying important driver info right in the windshield. Below that is the 12-inch Control Display, showcasing all of your driving instruments, in stark colour and style.
Luxury competition abounds in the segment, but the X3 maintains its dominance over the other brands thanks to its often imitated but never duplicated design elements, and a litany of extra performance and technological features that put it over the edge. Against the Audi Q5, the competitor remains a hollow imitation through its basic design features against the X3’s elegant touches, less storage space, and inability to match the performance and capability features of the X3 when put in its M Performance designation. The Jaguar F-Pace faces a similar fate against the X3, where the F-Pace remains subservient in horsepower and while advertised as a mid-size SUV it presents a more heavier and hulkling look than the sleek compact crossover style of the X3. And even starting at a more expensive price of $52,500 compared to the X5’s $50,250, which can easily become more when the Jaguar balloons out with its higher trims and add-on features. Even in a crowded luxury market, the X3 consistently makes its advantages felt, especially when it excels in so many areas.
If making a statement when you drive is paramount for you, there’s no better option than the 2020 BMW X5. The signature BMW kidney grille always makes itself seen, flanked by unique curved headlights that cuts through all ahead. Sat on 22-inch light alloy wheels, this crossover is imposing, yet still devilishly light on its wheels. The driver and passengers alike will enjoy the outside elements in safety and luxury thanks to the glass roof Sky Lounge, all accented by the best in high quality glass accents and ambient lighting that deliver an interior that you’ll hardly believe is in a vehicle. For those always with gear in tow, the luggage compartment in the rear of the X5 provides secure storage, while the tailgate splits into two sections for simple loading and unloading.
Performance & Efficiency
Tough work is absolutely no stranger to the X5 when pushed forth by the TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder petrol engine. Pumping out 340 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque, this SUV only knows top-notch performance. Incredibly responsive, the turbocharger produces exquisite torque at just the slightest touch of the pedal, while the 8-speed automatic transmission ensures your drive is always efficient. xDrive capability and availabilities like the xOffroad Package makes certain that you’ll always receive the height in possible driving dynamics in the X5, the true Ultimate Driving Experience.
BMW Operating System 7.0 is at your command, through speech, touch, gesturing and iDrive management, it’s never been easier to get your X5 to do what you need it to. Only the latest and greatest technology has been infused in the X5, and especially with the Remote Software Upgrade, you’ll always have the latest versions. We could all use a little help out on the road, and the Driving Assistant Professional does exactly that, leading ahead with everything from a Lane Change Assistant to Emergency Stop Assistant, active side collision protection and so much more safety features. Connected Navigation gets you to your destination fast and efficiently, even offering pedestrian navigation that’s connected to your phone and the BMW Connected app.
The X5 is maybe the most quintessential luxury SUV on the market, so of course that means a healthy amount of competition, but ones that the BMW consistently sees itself with the upper hand against. If the Jaguar F-Pace finds itself struggling to compete against the X3, what do you imagine the results would be against the X5? The X5 may come at a larger price, but it makes all of that cost worth it with the variety of functions and features found in this uncompromising option. It’s big SUV size dwarfs the F-Pace, and does so within the height of gorgeous exteriors and interiors that tick every box for your sport utility needs. Even against something like the Land Rover Range Rover, you might get similar performance functions and comparable tech, depending on your interest, but the X5’s sporty design makes short work of the Range Rover’s personality-less boxed style. And, of course, that’s with the Ranger Rover starting at $114,000 and the X5 starting at $73,500. The X5 has been driving the segment forward for a reason, and it’s all due to its comprehensive, all-encompassing package.
