Engines

50i
Twin-turbo V8 petrol is super-refined and hugely quick. Not the pick of the range, though, because its poor fuel economy and CO2 emission make it an extravagant purchase.
X5M
Massively costly to run, but massively fast, too. The one to go for if performance is a priority, but you’ll need very deep pockets to buy it and keep it on the road.
Our pick
25d
The best choice, whether you’re buying privately or through work. Its performance is good, yet its fuel economy and CO2 emissions are the best of the range, so running costs are kept as low as possible.
30d
Better performance and refinement than the four-cylinder 25d, but more expensive to buy and run with it. Unless you want the extra punch, stick with the 25d.
40d
Better performance again than the 30d and better refinement than the four-cylinder 25d, but more expensive again to buy and run. Unless you want the extra punch, stick with the 25d.
M50d
This triple-turbo performance X5 is savagely fast for a diesel, but suffers poor refinement. Cheaper to run than the petrol X5M as a performance option, but there’s more sense further down the diesel range.
40e
This petrol-electric plug-in hybrid will do 20 miles on electricity alone (following a three-hour charge), before the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine kicks in to take you the rest of the way. It’s refined and relaxing to drive, and fairly low on company car tax compared to the diesel X5s - although the Volvo XC90 T8 is usefully cheaper still on this score, and is much faster and more practical.
