BMW X5 | Petrol vs. Diesel vs. Hybrid

June 30, 2021


Since our popular BMW X3 article from a while ago, the BMW X5 has been growing in popularity (and stock levels) so we thought we’d write this article to help customers choose between Petrol, Diesel or Hybrid.

Petrol vs. Diesel vs. Hybrid

Let’s have a look at the tech specs of the BMW X5, we’re basing this on our current stock holding. We currently run BMW X5 30d, 40i and 45e M Sport 5dr Auto’s on our short-term fleet:

BMW X5 40i

  • Top Speed: 150mph
  • 0-62mph: 5.5 seconds
  • WLTP Combined MPG: 25.7-28.2
  • Engine Power: 340hp
  • Engine Torque: 450 Nm
  • Luggage Capacity: 650l

BMW X5 30d

  • Top Speed: 142mph
  • 0-62mph: 6.3 seconds
  • WLTP Combined MPG: 37.7-42.2
  • Engine Power: 286hp
  • Engine Torque: 620 Nm
  • Luggage Capacity: 650l

BMW X5 45e

  • Top Speed: 127mph
  • 0-62mph: 5.6 seconds
  • WLTP Combined MPG: 188.3-235.4
  • Engine Power: 400hp
  • Engine Torque: 450 Nm
  • Luggage Capacity: 500l

Which version is for you?

This all depends on many factors, for example. Are you a company car driver? If you are, then the Plugin-Hybrid (PHEV) might be kinder on your Benefit in Kind tax. The hybrid version also allows you to travel around 45 miles on pure electric, so your daily commute might be covered.

If you can’t justify the price difference between the Hybrid against a traditional engine, then you’ve got the choice of the X5 40i or the X5 30d, this is again down to personal preference and the mileage you do on a daily basis. There is a 10 miles difference between the MPG on the Petrol vs. Diesel front.

Performance-wise, the Petrol is quicker and the engine is super slick. It sounds lovely inside the cabin as well. The diesel has plenty of torque but is slower to 62mph.
