We're happy to show you what makes this BMW crossover SUV special at our BMW dealership in Massachusetts.


The 2018 BMW X5 


The 2018 BMW X5 makes a wise choice if you're looking for a crossover SUV with a diverse array of engine choices, excellent utility, and all-weather capability. The entry-level BMW X5 35i trim comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine that puts out 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque. A diesel six-cylinder engine and a robust V8 engine are also available. BMW X5 35i models come with rear-wheel drive, but all other models are equipped with all-wheel drive. Standard features for your comfort and convenience include the BMW iDrive infotainment interface with a 10.2-inch touchscreen, a navigation system, voice controls, and a nine-speaker sound system. On the safety front, the BMW Assist emergency communications system is standard, as are a rearview camera and parking sensors. Cargo space measures 76.6 cubic feet with the seats folded down. Test out the storage options and tech traits in person with one of our BMW dealers near Burlington, MA.


The 2018 Audi Q7


The 2018 Audi Q7 is another spacious luxury SUV that might catch your eye, but thanks to the dynamic engine options, features, and cargo space of the BMW X5, we think it still makes the right choice. The base engine in the Audi Q7 is a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 252 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, which puts it a step behind the BMW X5 in terms of power. There is also a supercharged six-cylinder available, but no fuel-sipping diesel engine. All-wheel drive is also standard. Other standard features include a rearview camera, an infotainment system with a seven-inch display, and a 10-speaker sound system. Unlike the BMW X5, parking sensors and an emergency communications system don't come standard, and maximum cargo space falls short, measuring 71.6 cubic feet with the back seats folded down.
