The BMW X5 is what the brand calls its Sports Activity Vehicle, but to many people less the most pedantic among us, it's a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). The X5 is significant - you could make the case that it was the very first SUV that was genuinely enjoyable to drive. After all, the original X5 was BMW's first ever SUV, built with a unibody chassis and sharing mechanical underpinnings with the 5 Series.

With the proliferation of engaging, driver-oriented SUVs in today's market (including the Bentley Bentayga, the Jaguar F-PACE, the Porsche Cayenne, and very soon even a Lamborghini SUV), the X5 is in some ways the big daddy of them all.

As part of the M Sport package, the X5 comes fitted with 19-inch M light alloy wheels

What do we have here?

This is the BMW X5 xDrive25d M Sport, the new entry-level X5 model available in Singapore. This X5 is being offered with a downsized 2.0-litre diesel powerplant, replacing the xDrive30d as the base model available locally.

Eh? Hasn't this model been around for awhile already?

Yes, the third generation F15 X5 was launched back in 2013. Presently, the X5 range offered locally has been trimmed to just two models, the xDrive35i model, and this one. Available solely in M Sport trim, this gets you M Sport rims as well as M Sport front and rear bumpers, which give the X5 a more aggressive disposition.

High on functionality, quality and luxury

This may be the 'base model' X5, but the interior feels anything but basic. It's generously well-equipped, with a wealth of technology including a new freestanding 10.25-inch Control Display, linked to the standard-fitted iDrive operating system.

Being an SUV, comfort and space are clearly important, and the X5 does not disappoint. The interior is lined in plush leather, and you have a wealth of storage options including huge cubby holes on either front door panel. The 650-litre boot can be expanded to 1,870 litres with the second row folded down. Additionally, the split two-section tailgate means that loading stuff into the boot is easy. 

The plush and modern interior offers generous amounts of space and comfort
