BMW X5 Rent in Dubai
The BMW X5 Rent in Dubai is a versatile player in the mid-size luxury-SUV segment, combining a well-appointed interior and a pleasurable driving experience in one handsome package. Even the entry-level models are richly outfitted with modern technology and convenience features, not to mention a silky-smooth inline-six cylinder engine. Upgrading to the plug-in hybrid model gives the X5 the ability to drive solely on electric power for short trips while the optional twin-turbo V-8 engine delivers seriously punchy acceleration. It might not be as plush inside as the Genesis GV80, nor quite as athletic as the Porsche Cayenne, but when compared to SUVs such as the Audi Q7 and the Mercedes-Benz GLE-class the X5’s well-roundedness shines through and for that it wins an Editors’ Choice award.
The limited edition Black Vermilion model is new to the lineup for 2022. This black-and-red beauty features unique styling cues as well as a host of high-end features such as Merino Black leather upholstery with red piping, a glass shift knob, a faux-suede headliner, a leather-covered dashboard, and a Harman/Kardon stereo system, to name a few. It’s based on the xDrive40i model and only 350 will be offered in the U.S., so if it strikes your fancy act quickly. Elsewhere in the lineup, the wireless smartphone charging pad is no longer offered and the Convenience package (remote start, four-zone automatic climate control, Wi-Fi hotspot) has been eliminated from the spec sheet for 40i models. Those entry-level models are no longer offered with the optional air suspension either. Two new colors are available for 2022—Sparkling Brown Metallic and Dravit Gray Metallic—and buyers can now order the fancy glass shift knob and control buttons as a standalone option.
We love saving money almost as much as we love great performance, and that’s why we think the xDrive40i is the BMW X5 Rent in Dubai to rent. With a zero-to-60-mph time of just 4.8 seconds, it’s got sports-sedan acceleration, comes with all-wheel drive, and is a relative bargain in this pricy class. We’d recommend adding the Premium package for its head-up display, four-zone automatic climate control, remote engine-start capability, and Harman/Kardon stereo system.
The 2022 X5 is offered with one of three distinct powertrains, each associated with a different model. X5s wearing the sDrive40i or xDrive40i badge are powered by a 335-hp turbocharged inline-six. The plug-in hybrid xDrive45e comes with a turbocharged inline-six and an electric motor that combine for 389 horsepower. At our test track, that powertrain motivated an X5 to 60 mph in just 4.7 seconds. (We’ve also tested the 40i—it managed a quick 4.8-second run to 60 mph.) Last but not least, the M50i’s 523-hp twin-turbo V-8 enables it to rush to 60 mph in less than four seconds. All three powertrains are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and none of them will leave drivers wanting for power in virtually any driving situation. The X5’s refined ride and stable handling are a big improvement compared with the previous-generation model, as is its steering, which feels more connected and direct but still not exactly what we’d consider sporting. The Q7 still has the X5 beat in this area, but it’s a close match. Pitch the BMW X5 Rent in Dubai into a fast corner, and it holds on reliably and rewards the driver with a predictability that’s missing from the GLE-class. And if you need to tow, know that the X5’s maximum towing capacity is a stout 7200 pounds no matter which engine it has.
