How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

Up front, the BMW X5 feels airy, with lots of room in and around each seat for anyone tall.

There's plenty of storage space, with a huge cubby between the seats, another one with room for your smartphone and two cup-holders, which, if you tick the right option box, can heat or cool your drinks.

Seat folding and flexibility

The electric controls make it easy to adjust the X5's front passenger seat through a wide range of movement, but only the driver’s seat gets a memory function.

As with most rivals, you get rear seats that split into three sections and fold down to allow one or two occupants to remain seated while you’re carrying a long load.

If you pay more to have the optional third row of seats (not available on the PHEV), you can upgrade to a sliding middle row to increase boot capacity when you need to. Sliding rear seats are standard in most rivals.
