The BMW X5 can claim to have begun the trend towards large 4x4s that were meant for road use rather than frequent forays into the wilderness. And the new model launched in 2007 improves that formula further - it's more spacious, economical and quicker than before, plus it's better to drive too.

Buying used

Diesels will be the most expensive, but will genuinely be cheaper to run, however if you want to save money look for models without some of the more desirable options which might as a result, be cheaper. There are only two trim levels - the entry-level SE is fairly well equipped but if you want sportier looks go for an M Sport.

The second-generation X5 will be in demand throughout its life so you'll have few problems selling it. Buyers will be after diesel models but trim will make little difference. However sat nav and leather seats will be a major factor in terms of the price you get and how quickly you sell.
