Our Verdict

The BMW X5 is appealing to customers due to its sporty looks and nature. There are four models available – 2 rear wheel drive and 2 all-wheel drive. The X5 comes with seven seats which is what sets it apart from competition. The extra seat does eat into the boot space but nonetheless, its still pretty roomy. Comfort level on the second and third row can be questioned, also, the third row is suitable only for children or luggage. This big, powerful SUV is agile and responsive with emphasis on comfort, safety and luxury. The car proves an irresistible draw because of its cabin comfort, sporting performance and luxury.
