Style & Amenities

Whether you're interested in two or three rows, the 2021 BMW X5 is decked out in polished materials. SensaTec upholstery comes standard on both the dashboard and the seats, but Vernasca leather upholstery is also available. To give your SUV the feeling of a classic luxury car, it's also equipped with a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

You'll have a few options for the interior accents as well. Refined wood is available along the center console, or you can opt for a more modern approach and choose a sleek black accent instead.

Power adjustable front seats also come standard to give you lots of ways to get comfortable. You can warm up quickly on cold days, too, with 3-stage heated front seats. Plus, multi-color, adjustable ambient lighting is available to set the right atmosphere for your drive. If you prefer natural light, the panoramic moonroof can brighten up your drive.

High-Tech Features

While the BMW X5's design is timeless, its dashboard and instrument cluster feature the latest technology. For example, the iDrive 7.0 Operating System features a 12.3-inch screen on top of the dashboard. It's Bluetooth® compatible and includes the following features:

  • Apple CarPlay™
  • Android Auto™
  • Voice control
  • Navigation

In addition to streaming music, the X5 also includes both SiriusXM® and HD Radio™. Plus, you'll get excellent sound quality from the available Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound System.

The navigation system can guide you with turn-by-turn directions, but the instrument cluster can also display a map of your route in real time. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional system provides a second 12.3-inch screen, so you can see information about your drive and know where to make your next turn.
