Coming off a full redesign last year, the current BMW X5 is a versatile and high-class luxury SUV. It has lots of high-tech safety features, its interior is bigger and better equipped than ever before, and performance from both base models is strong. The BMW X5 is perfect for leasing in Miami.

The 2020 BMW X5 M50i is a stronger version of BMW’s midsize luxury SUV. Thanks to a more powerful engine, significant suspension updates and some differences in styling, the X5 M50i clearly stands apart from the mainstream X5 models.

How Powerful Is Its Engine?

The standard X5 comes with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 335 horsepower and 330   of torque. If you try the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 in the X5 xDrive50i you will feel that power.

The M50i is even more powerful, delivering 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. This extra boost in power drops the   0-60 mph time to just 4.1 seconds — impressive for a vehicle of any size. Like the other X5s, the M50i comes with a nifty eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.

To facilitate the power there has been plenty of upgrades under the hood with reinforced crankshafts and powerful pistons.

Careful Engineering

The M50i comes with an electronically controlled M Sport differential that transfers power between wheels to maximize traction. With an engine like that you need larger M Sport brakes on those 20-inch wheels. The X5 has larger front bumper openings to channel more air to the engine and keep it cool.

Does It Have Any Extras?

Standard equipment for the X5 M50i includes adaptive LED headlights and LED foglights, dual-zone automatic climate control, Apple CarPlay compatibility, heated multi-contor front seats, a 12.3-inch central display which features  BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional iDrive 7 system.

More Than Enough

If that’s not enough, you can  add  adaptive air suspension to raise or lower  the car   when you place it in Sport mode or exceed 85 mph  Also on offer are a Dynamic Handling package with active steering and adaptive M suspension , a safety package called Driving Assistance Professional giving you active lane-keeping assist, active cruise control, front cross-traffic alert.
