BMW is famous the world over for its luxurious cars that are high performing and consistently reliable.
The BMW X5 is a mid-size, crossover SUV – now known as an SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle) – and very much continues BMW’s excellent reputation. It is both a luxurious SAV and a durable performance car that is even used by the UK police.
Although the BMW X5 series is popular, the models in the range remain expensive vehicles, often costing upwards of £50,000. So, to help customers who want to drive these magnificent cars, car dealers have various finance deals available.
Here, we are going to take a look at some of the finance deals available for the BMW X5 Series and where you can find the best deals.

BMW X5 Series finance deals
There are a number of finance deals available to purchase a BMW X5 model for those who do not have the funds to buy one outright. They could use hire purchase, personal contract purchase deals, or a personal loan.
Both CarMoney and BMW themselves have a range of excellent finance deals available on X5 models. By choosing one of their finance deals, you may be able to afford to drive the luxury car you have always wanted.
So let’s jump in and take a look at some of the details of what finance deals are available!
What types of car finance deals are there?
A car finance deal refers to any payment for a car when it is not bought outright with a customer’s own money. Some finance deals culminate with the customer purchasing the car, while others end with the customer returning their vehicle to a dealer.
Hire Purchase (HP)
A hire purchase (HP) deal is a car finance agreement in which you pay a deposit that is based on the value of the car, usually around 10%, and then pay off the rest of the costs in monthly payments plus interest. Once you have finished paying these instalments, if you have not yet paid the total cost of the car, you pay a transfer fee to complete your purchase. The overall cost of the monthly instalments, the transfer fee, and the interest, is more than the total value of the car if you had bought it outright.
Personal Contract Purchase (PCP)
Personal contract purchase (PCP) deals are similar to a hire purchase. You usually put down a deposit of around 10% of the car’s value and then pay monthly instalments over a pre-agreed period of time. The cost of the instalments is based on the car’s current value, its predicted value, and interest rates.
However, where PCPs differ from hire purchases is that once the time period of the personal contract purchase is complete, you have three options. You can return the car to the dealer, pay an optional final payment (known as a “balloon payment”) to cover the total price of the car and keep it or use the car’s resale value to put towards the purchasing of a new car.
A personal loan does not involve a deal with a car dealer. Instead, it is a deal you can get with your bank whereby they loan you enough money to buy a car outright. You then pay back the loan in instalments with interest over an agreed period of time.
Depending on your credit rating, the amount of money you are borrowing, and the time frame in which you must pay it back, a personal loan may work out cheaper than some of the other purchasing options.

First generation: BMW X5 (E53)
The first generation of the X5, the E53, was produced between 1999 and 2006.
The E53 was designed and developed soon after BMW had acquired Land Rover and it shares many components with some of Land Rover’s designs. Although no longer manufactured, the E53 shares the same technology for the in-car entertainment system as other BMWs. This means that it can be easily updated and installed with the latest in-car tech.

The E70 includes an optional row of seats to increase the overall capacity to up to seven passengers.

The iDrive system is now standard across most of BMW’s car range.
The E70 also has active steering, which changes the steering resistance depending on the type of driving you are doing, keyless access, and inbuilt parking sensors.
Third generation: BMW X5 (F15)
The F15 third generation was produced between 2013 and 2018.
The F15 was a bigger model than the E70 and came in a choice of engine sizes. The different models included a hybrid electric model that was powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
