Expert Quotes:

X5 xDrive35i: 16/23 mpg. X5 xDrive35d: 19/26 mpg. X5 xDrive50i: 14/20 mpg. X5 M: 12/17 mpg.
EPA

Not only does this impressive engine produce substantially more power and torque than the old 30i mill, it also achieves significantly better fuel economy.
Edmunds




It's not going to bowl over efficiency aficionados, but the 2011 BMW X5 is actually one of the more efficient large SUVs available. The X5 xDrive35i, powered by a direct-injection turbocharged inline six-cylinder scores 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway--as good as many mid-size sedans. The V-8-powered xDrive50i scores a less-impressive 14/20 mpg, but even that still manages to beat much of the similarly-powerful competition.

A diesel is available in the X5 xDrive35d, greening things up at 19/26 mpg, for 22 mpg combined, a commendable figure for a full-sized SUV that still has some sporting spunk.

The X5 M is all about performance, and the fuel economy figures reflect that: 12 mpg city, 17 mpg highway.

Conclusion

One of the greenest choices in its class, the BMW X5 rates 19/26 mpg with the diesel six-cylinder engine, and 16/23 mpg with the six-cylinder gasoline option.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
