Why Lease A BMW X5?
How Does Leasing Work With Vanarama?When you lease a BMW, you get access to a brand-new car while making fixed monthly payments for the length of your contract. Most lease deals last between 2-5 years, but you can decide the length of the deal to ensure it meets your needs.You get to decide your annual mileage and how much you’d like to pay upfront. Car maintenance and servicing can also be included as an optional extra on your lease deal. Once your leasing contract ends, you simply return the car. If you choose a BMW X5 business lease, you can reclaim up to 100% of the VAT on your deal, providing your company is eligible.To find out more about how contract hire works, take a look at our easy-to-understand guide to car leasing.
What’s The BMW X5's Interior Like?
BMW X5 Driving Experience
One of the principle benefits of SUVs is the space they offer inside. The BMW X5 is no exception, with ample room for grown ups in the first and second row of seats.
A third row of foldable seats is an option on most models within the X5 range. This takes the total capacity up to 7 seats, although as with most SUVs, the final row is best suited to children.
The BMW X5’s fuel economy figures are generally better than average for a car of this size. The xDrive30d, for instance, returns up to 42.2mpg. That’s better than the similarly powerful Audi Q7 50 TDI or the Mercedes-Benz GLE 300d, and CO2 figures generally compare favourably for company car drivers, too.
But the biggest news with the new X5 is the arrival of a plug-in hybrid option, the xDrive45e. This offers an impressive electric-only range of up to 54 miles, which means that some drivers will be able to cover all their normal daily driving without ever firing up the petrol engine.
You’d certainly need to spend most of your time running on electricity to get anywhere near its official fuel economy rating of 235mpg – as is the case with any plug-in hybrid. In the real world, you’re more likely to see 40-50mpg in mixed driving, but that’s still impressive for a large SUV.
BMW X5 Models Available To Lease
BMW X5The BMW X5 sticks to a traditional SUV template – 5 doors, including a split tailgate, both sections of which can be operated remotely if you choose to lease a car with the Comfort Access pack.
BMW X5 M CompetitionThe flagship model in the X5 range is the X5 M. This is given its own separate designation, much like the BMW M3 is to its 3 Series siblings, and in the UK we only get the range-topping Competition variant. This retains the same basic body and structure as the regular X5, but it has been heavily reworked under the skin to provide huge performance that totally belies its size.
High-Performance ModelsAll versions of the X5 are good to drive, and all are potent performers by the standards of their class. Opt for the X5 M50i, or its diesel counterpart the M50d, and you get features like a sports exhaust, stiffer suspension and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential at the back. It’s the X5 M Competition that really ratchets things up, however. Powered by the same 625hp twin-turbo V8 that you’ll find in the BMW M5 supersaloon, it rockets from 0-62mph in just 3.8 seconds and on to 180mph when fitted with the optional M Driver’s Package.
X5 Trim Levels To Lease
The BMW X5 Vs Competitors
Generally, yes. BMW finished joint-9th out of more than 30 brands in a reliability survey carried out by What Car? in 2020, eclipsing the likes of Audi, Porsche and Volvo. The current generation X5 is still relatively new, but few problems have been reported.
The BMW X5 sits more or less in the middle of its class for boot space, but in outright terms the answer is still ‘plenty’. It’s more capacious than a number of rivals and boasts a handy split tailgate design and a flat boot floor to make loading easier.
BMW’s trim levels are more straightforward than some manufacturers’. The 2 main trim specs are xLine and M Sport, the latter being somewhat more sporty in drive and appearance. Further up the range, the V8-powered M50i is given its own trim spec, as is the range-topping 625hp X5 M Competition.
Yes. All models come with BMW’s Parking Assistant system.
If you want to access 7 seats, you’ll need to lease an X5 with the Third Row Seating option ticked. Nonetheless, the standard 5-seat cabin provides plenty of storage space and a large boot.
The BMW X5 is a popular leasing choice because it responds so well to the questions posed by everyday driving. It’s comfortable, spacious and good to drive, with a good-quality cabin and reasonable running costs for a vehicle of this size.
