2018 BMW X5 Hybrid Specs, Price

BMW has confirmed that the latest 2018 BMW X5 Hybrid will be
launched next year. The race between Mercedes and BMW in the
premium SUV class does not take off. These two German
manufacturers in that class are currently leading the main
thing. This time, BMW does not want to go into the unknown, as
for design. So, when it comes to technical solutions.

Probably the experts of this company defined that average
customers of this class of vehicles are not in the mood for
experiments. In the first place they value safety, reliability,
quality and driving characteristics. In recent years, it has
again become a characteristic conservative approach to design
for the entire BMW brand, al.

But in spite of that, the sporting image is still cultivated.
This also applies to the new 2018 BMW X5 Hybrid. Changes to the
predecessors are quite discrete. At first glance, the new 2018
X5 Hybrid does not differ much from the previous model, but
during city driving, the changes are noticeable.

2018 BMW X5 Hybrid – Exterior Body Changes and Interior Cabin

The front part of the latest SUV model is typically “BMW-style”
styled. Compared to the previous model, the traditional
radiator grille has been extended. But remains in line with the
rest of the vehicle. Light groups are also recognizable. So the
final assessment is that the design of novelties represents the
evolution of the predecessor, not a radical shift.

The same can be said for the hips and the back. This model
cannot go unnoticed thanks to its dimensions. The carousel is
about five meters long and nearly two feet wide. The new SUV
will use CLAR (Cluster Architecture). Also, by combining steel,
aluminum and carbon fiber, the new BMW X5 Hybrid 2018 will be
50 kilograms lighter than the previous model.

The 2018 BMW X5 Hybrid will be available in several different
colors Alpine White, Atlas Cedar Metallic, Azurite Black
Metallic, Black Sapphire Metallic, Carbon Black Metallic, Dark
Graphite Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Imperial Blue
Metallic, Jet Black, Mineral White Metallic, Pearl Silver
Metallic, Ruby Black Metallic, Space Gray Metallic and
Sparkling Brown Metallic.


In addition to the visual impression, the dimensions also
positively reflect the spaciousness. Upon entering the car, the
driver feels like a slim studio, and the space on the front
seats is unmatched. The driver and co-driver have special rest
areas, and on the back bench, absolutely every passenger will
be able to find adequate comfort. Expectedly, the rear bench is
divided according to 40/20/40 principle, so that only two
passengers can find the maximum comfort. The luggage
compartment has a capacity of 650 liters, which is easily
increased to 1.870 liters by dropping the rear bench.

The interior of the new 2018 BMW X5 Hybrid represents only the
evolution of the predecessor. All recognizable elements, such
as gear shift lever, instrument panel and center console, are
there, only with the necessary changes. In front of the
steering wheel there are only four analogue instruments, but on
the right, there is a huge, well-highlighted color display. And
the inside of the model offers several options of different
colors Amaro Brown, Black, Canberra Beige, Criollo Brown, Ivory
White/Black, Mocha, Nutmeg, Smoke White, Taupe and Terra.

2018 BMW X5 Hybrid – Powerful Engine and Performance

By pressing the switch, a powerful 3.0-liter diesel engine is
launched that releases 258 hp. The torque reaches 560 Nm, which
are available in the range of 1,500 to 3,000 rpm. The sound of
the engine is extremely dim, and even when it reaches the cab,
it’s not rough, but rather quite attractive.

The engine is very good. But the driving dynamics does not
contribute even less to the eight-speed automatic transmission.
It perfectly chooses the engine’s operating mode, so that the
driver is asked what is the option of changing the gear’s
degree. The new 2018 BMW X5 Hybrid has fantastic driving
characteristics. However, the 4 × 4 drive was always there to
provide better active safety and an adequate traction on a
slippery surface.
