The X5 received a freshening last year, updating its headlight clusters, grille and front fascia, as well as other styling details from front to back. Still one of the most popular luxury SUVs available, the 2005 model offers standard automatic climate control and Dark Poplar wood trim on the 225-hp X5 3.0i, while Light Poplar and Maple Anthracite is optional at no additional cost. Optional power includes a 315- hp 4.4L V8 and 355-hp 4.8L V8. Still nimbler through the corners than many “sport” sedans, the X5 offers one of the best executed cabins in its segment, with unsurpassed solidity.
