Development and launch[edit]

Information on the G05 X5 was released online on 6 June 2018.[5]

The G05 X5 uses BMW's Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform also found in the G11 7 Series and G30 5 Series.[6] It features a five-link rear suspension and is also available with four-wheel steering or adjustable air suspension that can be raised or lowered by 40 mm (2 in).[7] Compared to its predecessor, the G05 X5 is 36 mm (1 in) longer, 66 mm (3 in) wider, and 19 mm (1 in) taller in height.[8] All petrol models feature particulate filters while all diesel models feature AdBlue injection that reduces nitrogen oxide emissions.[9]

All models feature xDrive all-wheel drive.[10] The xDrive50i model is available outside the European markets, while the European markets will get the M50i models.[11]


Standard equipment includes LED headlights, electronically controlled dampers, electric and heated sports seats, and two 12.3-inch displays for the instrument panel and iDrive system.[12] G05 X5 models are also available with laser headlights, heated and cooled cupholders, a panoramic sunroof with LED patterns, and a Microsoft Office 365 and Skype for Business subscription with over-the-air updates.[13] A new Digital Key system also enables a smartphone to be used as a keyfob to lock or unlock the car via NFC.[14]

xLine and M Sport packages are also offered alongside the standard trim and feature different body styling and exclusive exterior paint colours and upholstery choices.[15] xLine models feature 19-inch alloy wheels with aluminium exterior trim, while M Sport models feature 20-inch alloy wheels with high-gloss trim.[16]
