Are you planning some outdoor activities around our Peabody, MA BMW dealership this fall? If so, you might be thinking about camping. While camping is always fun in its own right, you can make it even more enjoyable in a BMW sport activity vehicle like the 2019 BMW X4 or the 2018 BMW X5.

While you may know what an SUV is, you might not be as clear about what an SAV is. An SAV is an automobile that has ground clearance and visibility that’s comparable to an SUV’s but provides a driving experience that is similar to one offered by a car. SAVs are also known for their “fastback” shape.

Just like SUVs and SAVs differ from one another, so do the BMW X4 and the BMW X5. While the 2019 BMW X4 sticks more closely to the definition of an SAV, the 2018 BMW X5 offers more utility and a driving experience that’s noticeably less car-like. Despite their differences, the redesigned BMW X4 and the new BMW X5 are both ready for some outdoor fun this fall.

The 2019 model year marks the start of the second generation for the BMW X4. Compared to previous iterations of the BMW X4, the new SAV is wider and lower. The 2019 BMW X4 boasts an updated suspension which makes the SAV a bit sportier. The SAV now has more safety equipment and improved connectivity as well.

The 2018 BMW X5 is available in four great-looking trims. Every trim has standard all-wheel drive with the exception of the 35i model, which is equipped with rear-wheel drive. This versatile vehicle comes with standard seating for five passengers, but an available third row provides seating for two more passengers.
