2011 BMW X5 xDrive50i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)


I've had a X5 4.4 for little over ten years (one of the very first). It still looks and drives like brand new at 7ok, so I didn't want to sell it to a stranger who wouldn't appreciate its condition and gave it to my daughter. I replaced it with a 5.0 which I feel I'll be happy with for another ten years or so. Performance is great, ride is firm with the M sport package and 20" wheels, but that's how I like it. Build quality is excellent.Transmission is smooth and fun in manual mode, though with eight gears you can't take your hand off the shift knob, you're constantly busy. It is very forgiving though if you get lazy, as it has lots of torque almost regardless of the gear you are in.

Best Features

Power, torque, handling, build quality.

Worst Features

Styling is typically BMW- quirky, you have to train your brain to love it.
