The 2024 BMW iX and BMW X5 are both sleek midsize SUVs with a lot of similarities. However, they also have distinct differences. We’re stacking up the two at BMW of Peabody to help you decide which one is right for you. 

Enticing Performance

The key difference between the two luxury SUVs is undoubtedly their powertrains. The BMW iX xDrive50 is an all-electric SUV that uses dual electric motors to deliver an exhilarating 516 horsepower and 564 lb-ft of torque. It boasts a heart-racing 4.4-second 0-60 time.

The BMW X5 core models are powered by a 3.0-liter BMW M TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine. With it, it produces up to 375 horsepower and 398 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate up to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds.


Naturally, it’s tough to beat the efficiency of an electric vehicle. The BMW iX boasts a notable 307-mile electric range. With a DC fast charger, you can add up to 90 miles of range in just 10 minutes too.

Roomy Cabins

While they each have a distinctive exterior style, the BMW iX and BMW X5 appear nearly identical in size. However, since the BMW iX is an electric vehicle, its electric powertrain’s layout gives it extra space inside the cabin. When you fold the second-row flat, it can hold up to 77.9 cubic feet of cargo in all, while the BMW X5 only has room for up to 72.3 cubic feet of cargo.
