If you’re shopping for a luxury SUV with three rows and BMW Performance auto parts, you may want to put the 2014 BMW X5 on your list. Many buyers turn to BMW for quality materials and top-notch workmanship, all of which is evident in the X5. The BMW X5 Performance accessories help to set it apart from the competition and make for an enjoyable ride in many types of terrain.
The available BMW X5 Performance parts are easily noticed on the car’s exterior. The vehicle incorporates unique touches like a front splitter, decorative black grid on the BMW kidney grille and carbon outside mirror caps. Side sill foils with the M Performance inscription, a diffuser insert for the rear apron and air ducting elements finalize the sporty exterior.
The revamped “Sport Activity Vehicle,” as BMW calls it, offers a refreshed interior with a dashboard that has been relocated forward. The vehicle features a premium sound system, which can easily be heard over road and wind noise.
BMW M Performance parts inside the vehicle also help give it a more athletic look. Interior selections include a gear lever with carbon surface, sports steering wheel featuring a distinctive red marking at its center, floor mats and an accelerator, driver footrest and brake pedal constructed of high-grade steel. The vehicle also features a BMW M Performance brake system, complete with blue brake calipers and bi-color light alloy wheels measuring 21 inches.
Under the Hood
Options under the hood consist of a 255-horsepower, 3.0-liter turbo diesel, a 445-horsepower, 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 and 300-horsepower 3.0-liter gasoline. The three engines are connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both real-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are available. Should you select the BMW X5 xDrive35i, consider adding the BMW M Performance Power Kit, which provides additional output but does not impact how much fuel is consumed.
The X5 also excels at handling. In the mountains, the X5 will behave more like a sports sedan than a trail cruiser. The optional active anti-roll bars and rear air-suspension helps keep cornering under control. Unlike some competitors, the X5 has a stability control that works with you when you approach the limits. It feels like a sedan when you’re changing directions.
New car shoppers with discerning taste should carefully consider the 2014 BMW X5. The included BMW M performance line of upgrades offers several options to personalize your vehicle and tailor it to your unique style.
