What class of car is a BMW X5?
I’m planning a months-long road trip, but I’m worried I won’t be able to fit everything I need into my BMW X5. Is there an easy way to know how much cargo capacity my car has?
Answer provided by
A BMW X5 is categorized as a midsize crossover SUV in terms of class according to EPA guidelines.
Your vehicle’s cargo capacity and passenger capacity determine it’s class, which is really just a fancy way of referring to your car’s overall interior size. While there are many different scales you can use to determine your vehicle’s class, the EPA’s guidelines are accepted as a standard.
According to the U.S. Fuel Economy Guide for SUVs:
- A mini crossover SUV has less than 116 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
- A compact crossover SUV has between 116 and 125 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
- A midsize SUV has between 125 and 140 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
- A full size SUV has between 140 and 170 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
- A minivan SUV has more than 170 cubic feet of combined passenger and cargo volume
