The 2013 BMW X5 isn’t the most spacious choice for family hauling purposes. BMW’s own X3 isn’t that much smaller, for instance, and while the X5 does offer a third row seat, it’s laughable compared to those in the less expensive Acura MDX and Infiniti JX. There are also other sporty choices such as the Infiniti FX and Porsche Cayenne one would likely want to consider. But overall we think pretty highly of the X5. And if your drives regularly involve Nevada sand storms, well, you know what to get.

The 2013 BMW X5 is one of the best handling midsize luxury crossovers around. Whether driving on back roads or on an endless expanse of interstate, the X5 is a champ. Some competitors offer more utility and off road capabilities, but the X5 ably brings BMW’s legendary handling prowess to the SUV arena. You’ll notice the elevated ride height and considerable curb weight on tight roads, though. Engine performance is strong throughout the lineup, even with the base six cylinder.

BMW’s all wheel drive X5 crossover uses the turbocharged six cylinder and V-8 engines also seen in models like the 5 Series and X6. Also offered are a diesel xDrive35d version, which carries on as a 2012 model, and a high performance X5 M. Depending on the model, the X5 can seat five people in two rows or seven in three. Competitors include the Audi Q7, Mercedes-Benz M and GL-Class, and Acura MDX.

The most significant update for the 2013 X5 is the M Performance Package, available on X5 xDrive35i and xDrive50i (with M Sport Package) models. Adding 15 horsepower and 30 pound feet of torque to the six cylinder model, and 40 hp and 30 lb-ft of torque to the V-8 X5, the new M Performance upgrade adds to the X5’s sporty edge. Other updates include a new “chrome line” exterior trim for the Convenience package on X5 Premium models, new Orion Silver trim replaces Platinum Bronze metallic, the Premium Sound Package has been reduced to $950; and the Active Ventilated Seat Package is renamed the Luxury Seating Package. The X5 xDrive35d is still on sale, but only as a 2012 model. Stylistically, the X5 is, unlike its X6 coupe utility brother, largely unobjectionable. It’s chunky, but well proportioned, casting a masculine shadow without going into brawny territory. Inside, the look is typically conservative, but modern, and well executed in color, materials, and customization options.

For 2013 BMW is leaving its (arguably) niche topping X5 midsize crossover SUV pretty much alone. That’s because this 5 to 7 passenger 4 door Sports Activity Vehicle (as Beemer enchantingly designates its entire crossover lineup) is anticipated to don its next gen garb for the 2014 model year. This naturally leaves potential buyers in the somewhat awkward position of pondering a soon to be-bygone trim, or waiting a year for the upgraded version. For those who’d rather not dally, expect the 2013 trims to remain the base xDrive35i, the turbo-diesel xDrive35d, the agile xDrive35i Sport Activity, the uber luxurious xDrive35i Premium and the V8-powered xDrive50i. All trims, of course, come with standard xDrive “intelligent” all wheel drive (AWD), not to mention plenty of standard luxury features, nimble handling and turbocharged power in both diesel and gasoline-burning versions. Dimensions will carry over from 2012 as well, thus cargo capacity remains 75.2 cubic feet in all trims, with the rear seats folded. Towing capacity, by the way, remains maxed out at 6,000 pounds with proper equipment.

2013 BMW X5 Interior :
Standard equipment on the xDrive35i includes 18 inch wheels, automatic and adaptive bi xenon headlights, LED running lights, foglamps and automatic wipers. Inside, you get keyless ignition, cruise control, dual zone automatic climate control, 10 way power front seats with memory functions, leatherette premium vinyl upholstery, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, the iDrive electronics interface, Bluetooth phone connectivity, the BMW Assist emergency communications system, and a 10 speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.

The iDrive electronics interface works well for wrangling all of the X5’s systems, but it can come off as rather complicated, some rival systems are easier to use. Utility can also be a concern. The second row seats are mounted a bit too low to the floor, longer legged passengers will likely bemoan this seating position, as it forces knees upwards. The optional third row is even more cramped and really only accommodates children. With both rows folded, cargo space measures 75 cubic feet, about average in this class.

The tall, chunky proportions mean business, but they’re softened by smooth lines, delicate details around the front end, and BMW’s sedan bred front end identity. While it’s somewhat middle of the road, it’s also not something everyone will like. The X5 M breaks the X5 mold a bit by adding some seriously bonkers bodywork that only the truly track mad or tuner friendly will really enjoy.

As for entertainment and convenience features, the X5 has a long list of available equipment, including the iDrive based navigation and infotainment system, 10 way power adjustable front seats, push button start, automatic climate control, parking distance sensors, HD Radio, plus iPod and USB connectivity and more.

Seating for five is standard, an optional third row seat raises capacity to seven. Other options include a power adjustable steering column and ventilated seats. Interior features include :
>. Standard automatic climate control.
>. Standard tilt/telescoping steering column; power adjustments optional.
>. iPod/USB adapter.
>. Available premium stereo.
>. Available wood trim.

2013 BMW X5 Exterior :
The 2013 BMW X5 is a midsize luxury crossover SUV that seats five. An optional third row bench adds two more seats, though they are quite small. Five trim levels are offered: xDrive35i, xDrive35i Premium, xDrive35i Sport Activity, xDrive35d and xDrive50i. “xDrive” indicates that it has standard all wheel drive, while the last three digits represent the engine. A high performance version known as the X5 M is covered in a separate review.

Though there are four main trim lines to the 2013 X5, they differ very little in appearance, with a wide range of exterior and interior customization available. The X5 M is the only real deviation from the lineup, with aggressive body work, larger, lower profile wheels and wider tires, unique interior elements, and a decidedly racy look.

Eighteen inch alloy wheels are standard on the base xDrive35i, with 19-inchers optional. An M Sport Package adds more aggressive bodywork and 20-inch wheels. Exterior features include :
>. Automatic headlights.
>. Available panoramic moonroof.
>. Heated side mirrors.
>. Power liftgate.

2013 BMW X5 Engine :
The xDrive35i models feature a 3.0 liter turbocharged inline 6 that produces 300 horsepower and 300 pound feet of torque. Both this engine and the 50i get an eight speed automatic transmission and all wheel drive standard. According to BMW, it will go from zero to 60 mph in 6.4 seconds. EPA estimated fuel economy is 16 mpg city/23 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined. With the Sport Activity’s M Sport package, output increases to 315 hp and 330 lbft of torque. The xDrive50i gets a twin turbo 4.4 liter V8 good for 400 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. BMW says it’ll hit 60 mph in 5.3 seconds, while EPA estimated fuel economy is 14/20/16. With its M Sport package, output goes up to 440 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque.

The X5 is available in five trim levels: xDrive35i, xDrive35i Premium, xDrive35i Sport Activity, xDrive35d and xDrive50i. The xDrive35i variants get a single turbo 300 hp 3.0 liter inline six cylinder engine, while the xDrive50i boasts a 400 hp 4.4 liter twin turbo V8, both engines are mated to an eight speed Sport automatic transmission with manual shift mode. The xDrive35d is powered by a 265 hp 3.0 liter twin turbo inline six cylinder diesel engine, paired with six speed automatic transmission with manual shift mode.

The 2013 BMW X5’s strongest suit is its paved road handling and comfort. In V-8 powered xDrive50i form, there’s plenty of power on tap and most certainly so in the 555 horsepower X5 M but all X5s steer, grip, and feel much like a car behind the wheel. The xDrive35i’s 3.0 liter turbocharged in line six cylinder engine is rated at 300 horsepower and 300 pound feet of torque. It feels like it offers every bit of that to the driver, with good low end torque and strong acceleration at almost any speed. The eight speed automatic transmission, common to all X5s, feels sporty enough to keep up with the X5 when the driver wants to hustle, and is very laid back and smooth shifting when the pace is more relaxed.
