Much as you might want to hate it, five minutes behind the wheel are about all it takes to prompt a spectacular about-turn, persuaded by the X5 M40 D , M Sport full and impressive package , slick, seethingly powerful engine that can reach 0 – 100KM in just 5.9 secs and a M Sport full package package that’s at once compellingly sensible and more over impressive!
Throttle response is particularly pleasing, the engine unleashing its serious physics without pause or hesitation, and lag all but absent thanks to some pretty compelling engineering under the hood. Turbos, variable valve control and cross-bank exhaust manifolds all do their bit for ever-present performance.
And on the inside?
Lovely. The BMW’s mood lighting spots what is a spectacularly refined, and a comfortable and well-appointed cockpit. A spectacular sense of space and light (thanks to those huge side windows) and the fundamentals of the driving position are perfect: great visibility, great lateral support from the spectacular M-specific 7 seats available, and nice details like BMW’s awesomely crisp and clear full M Sport Package function head-up display and the tactile shift paddles.
iDrive is as beautifully resolved and as intuitive as ever. You wouldn’t dream of trying to tweak, say, your bass level or interior lighting colour on the fly with most touchscreen interfaces for fear of prompting a pile-up, but with iDrive you just get stuck in, so accurate are its inputs and clear its menus. And those all-important M function buttons make light work of the car’s endless drive options.
