By the Numbers: 2017 BMW X5 vs. 2017 BMW X3

September 29th, 2016 by

BMW X5On the surface, the 2017 BMW X5 and 2017 BMW X3 SAVs don’t appear all that different. But under their steel-and-aluminum skin, each possesses a character which is decidedly different, yet still uniquely BMW. In both models, xDrive all-wheel drive splits power in a 40/60-percent front/rear split under normal driving to retain a performance driving feel. When enhanced traction is needed, xDrive can seamlessly vary up to 100 percent of each SAV’s power to either axle. Standard safety technologies like brake drying, auto hill hold, and adaptive brake lamps compliment already strong crash test ratings, while the X5’s optional third-row seat enhances versatility.
