Best BMW Models for Families in Fremont, CA

What are the best BMW models for families?

BMW may be known for roadsters like the BMW Z4, coupes like the BMW 2-Series and BMW 4-Series, and performance monsters like the BMW M3 or BMW M5, but they also happen to make some fantastic family vehicles. 

A great family vehicle needs to be able to do everything from hauling the kids and all their stuff to a day at the Aqua Adventure Water Park with room to spare, to taking a road trip out to the Big Sur for a peaceful getaway. However, having ample cargo space and the latest safety features doesn't mean that you need to miss out on enjoying the drive. 

For active Fremont families, there are several BMW models that fit these needs, while also being both luxurious and a joy to drive. 

BMW X3: For active families, the BMW X3 Sports Activity Vehicle offers an ideal combination of size, sportiness, and style. With just over 28 cubic feet of storage space with the seats up, and a stunning 62.7 cubic feet of space with the seats folded, the X3 has plenty of room for everything from a warehouse store run to hauling a set of bikes out to the Coyote Hills Regional Park. The rear seat is large and well-shaped, making it perfect for car seats. Powerful performance from a variety of TwinPower Turbo engines means the X3 isn't just spacious, but fun to drive as well. 

BMW X4: Looking for a sporty family car with style? The BMW X4 Sports Activity Coupe may be just what you need. Boasting some beautiful gran coupe styling, the X4 integrates a useful hatchback into a unique roofline. Inside, the X4 offers up to 50 cubic feet of storage space with all seats folded, so it can haul cargo as well as provide a performance kick with up to 473 horsepower from a six-cylinder twin-turbo engine. Think of the X4 as a combination of a compact SUV and sports car.  

BMW X5: BMW's very first SUV has been defining the luxury SUV space for nearly two decades. With room for up to seven people, the X5 comes in either sporting rear-wheel drive or road-gripping xDrive all-wheel drive. Whether you choose the fire-breathing X5 M or the fuel-sipping plug-in hybrid X5 xDrive 45e, all come with a smooth and responsive eight-speed automatic transmission. Cargo space is 33 cubic feet with the seats up and a staggering 72 cubic feet with the seats folded down. In the world of luxury crossovers, the X5 stands alone. 

BMW X7: For large families looking for big SUV space and power, the BMW X7 delivers. A standard third-row seat offers room for up to 7 adults, while up to 90 cubic feet of storage gives you room to haul everything from the soccer team to dogs and camping gear. When equipped with the muscular TwinPower Turbo V-8 power, the X7 can tow up to 7,500 pounds, more than enough for a boat or trailer. This powertrain also returns serious performance, with 0 to 60 mph times of under six seconds. Even though this is a large vehicle, BMW has provided a driving experience that belies its size. 

BMW 5-Series: Slotting in the BMW lineup just above the 3-Series, the 5-Series is a four-door luxury sedan that offers a spacious interior with the driving experience you've come to expect from BMW. A spacious back seat, wide doors, and a large 14 cubic foot trunk make quick work of people and their stuff. 

BMW 7-Series: Long considered one of the finest full-size luxury sedans on the road, the BMW 7-Series makes an excellent family vehicle due to its large 19 cubic foot trunk and massive back seat space. On top of the roomy accommodations, the BMW 7-Series offers a serene driving experience and plenty of performance. Stand-out models include the limited-edition Alpina B7 and the ultra-efficient i7 xDrive60.
