2002 BMW X5 Overview

The biggest change for the 2002 BMW X5 was the addition of the 4.6is model. As if the 4.4i wasn't fast enough, BMW introduced the 4.6is as the new standard bearer of the lineup, complete with a 347-horsepower, V8 engine.

At the time of its release, reviewers noted that it "may be the best handling SUV on the road," while conceding that a $40,000+ luxury automobile probably isn't the best option for off-road adventures (muddy trails, however, are "easily negotiable"). All 2002 models were upgraded with an in-dash CD player as standard equipment, optional automatic headlight control, and more options for seat adjustments. Adjustable ride height was a new option on the 3.0i and 4.4i models (not available on 4.6is).
