The 2015 BMW X5 SUV is available with third-row seating. However, third-row seating is offered as an optional extra rather than as a standard feature.
The 2015 BMW X5 comes standard with 60-40 split rear seats that fold down to expand the vehicle's cargo area. The cargo area in X5 SUVs with the third-row seating option is replaced with seats, along with a rear air suspension to cope with the additional weight and to improve passenger comfort. The third-row seating option costs $1,700, as of 2015, and is not compatible with adjustable Comfort Rear Seats. Third-row seats are also not available with some upholstery choices.
