BMW X5 overview and history
Are you thinking of buying a used SUV? Then the BMW X5 is a good choice. AutoUncle has 3,361 used BMW X5 for sale in the United Kingdom, each one sourced from an online marketplace or dealership website, providing you with nearly a full listing of all pre-owned BMW X5 for sale in the UK.
What is the price range for a pre-owned BMW X5?
There exist four main parameters which play a crucial role in the price of a used BMW X5: year, fuel consumption, how far the car has travelled together with equipment.
The oldest and cheapest BMW X5 here on AutoUncleis can be purchased for £2,500, and the newest and most well-equipped model costs around £70,850.
Equipment for BMW X5
Introduced in 2013, the latest generation of BMW X5, known as X5 F15 comes in the following trim level:
- BMW X5 M Sport (1,965 cars for sale)
- BMW X5 Comfort Edition (170 cars)
- BMW X5 Sport Line (124 cars)
- BMW X5 xLine (31 cars)
When looking for the best car deal for a used BMW X5, it is important only comparing the sale prices of cars with the same engine and trim level. Otherwise, you may make a wrong decision on which car to purchase.
As a guide, the most costly equipment variant, named xLine (Avg. price £55,727), is 17% more expensive than the cheapest variant, Sport Line (Avg. price £30,107), so you can save an average of £25,620 by choosing the cheapest variant. Normally, the depreciation is higher for the expensive equipment variant when buying a new BMW X5, as dealerships don't value equipment at the same level when reselling the car.
The BMW X5 outperforms similar cars in fuel efficiency
An ordinary SUV in the United Kingdom has a MPG of 34 miles, but the latest generation of the BMW X5 outdoes the average with a MPG of 41 miles.
Get your BMW X5 with multiple fuel types
In order to choose the right fuel type, you need to ask yourself the following questions: Do you primarily use your car to commute, and is the distance 35 miles or fewer each way? If your car is mainly used for short trips or in the city, the best fit for you would probably be hybrid, electric or petrol cars.
On the other hand, if you tend to rack up a lot of miles each week, we recommend diesel. Note that certain countries have banned high-emission diesel engines from cities.

Black is the most popular choice of colour
On AutoUncle you will find most BMW X5 in black and we currently have 508 cars for sale in that colour.
Black is the bestselling colour, but beware that it has some disadvantages. For one, scratches and dents are more visible on black cars than on light ones, and on top of that, they have a tendency to get quite hot during the summer.
You can get the latest generation of BMW X5 in 7 different shades and they are black, white, grey, silver, blue, brown and purple.
The BMW X5 only comes in the suv body type
SUV is short for Sport Utility Vehicle, and this is easily one of the most popular cars on the market today. The style is versatile, and the ride height is higher than traditional cars, which is a key selling point.
