Seating of Bmw X5
The interior of the BMW X5 7 seater car is similar to that of its predecessors, featuring 5 very comfortable seats. However, the X5 7 seater car features two extra pews that can be assembled by pulling the back upright. You can easily reach back from the side doors to assembly them, but you can choose to lean in from the boot as well. The middle-seats of the X5 slide via a release lever you can find on the outside shoulder back. They seats slide effortlessly in either direction thanks to the counterbalanced mechanism. Even though BMW recommends the rearmost seats for passengers no taller than 1.7 metres, these seats would work better for someone even shorter than that.
Storage of Bmw X5
This family car has a total storage capacity of 75.2 cubic feet, with 21.9 cubic feet being available behind the second row of seats. It offers more space with all 3 rows in use than other similar vehicles. The BMW X5 has an about average small-items storage and it features a flat load floor with all rows folded down. With only the third row seat up, you have enough room for a row of grocery bags.
Access of Bmw X5
The BMW X5 comes equipped with the comfort access system, which means you don’t have to search for your keys in your pockets or handbag anymore. All you need to do is approach the vehicle, open the door, and press the “Start” button. The comfort access sensors recognize your unique key remotely, regardless of where you are carrying your keys. Another benefit of the comfort access system is the fact that it is impossible to lock the keys inside the vehicle, as the doors do not lock as long as the key remains in the cabin. The ConnectedDrive technology allows for contactless opening of the tailgate.
Parking of Bmw X5
Even though the dimensions of the BMW X5 may make you think it is a difficult car to park, this is far from the truth. With a length of 191.1 in and a width of 76.1 in, the vehicle is easy enough to manoeuvre. Moreover, the car comes with useful parking sensors and multiview parking camera.
