The BMW X5 XDrive 40e I-Performance MSport is a super quiet and refined vehicle and a superb long-distance cruiser. It relays a sense of sportiness in the ride control while equipping the drive with a strong command of the road.
It is functional, spacious, comfortable and luxurious on the inside, and it looks good on the outside, complete with M Sport body kit.
Under the hood of the iPerformance X5 is a 2.0L, 4-cylinder TwinPower turbo powerplant producing 240HP, working in conjunction with eDrive electric motor and battery pack. Thus, real power is generated when needed via the 2.0L engine with all the benefits of the electric motor and low fuel consumption, toggling between the two as needed to garner the highest level of efficiencies. When paired with the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission, this engine produces 308HP and 450Nm of instant torque.
For those who care about efficiency and reducing their carbon footprint, the xDrive40e makes total sense. It drives and performs at the high level you’d expect and compromises little with the xDrive all-wheel drive.
