Summary

Parkers Rating:

4.5 out of 5

The X5 is a well designed and beautifully engineered rival to the Mercedes-Benz M-Class and Land Rover Range Rover. It has the performance of a high-power saloon, with the a high driving position and some off-road capability. The V8 is a superb all-rounder, but the diesel pulls equally strongly and is the more cost-effective solution. List prices for the recently launched X3 are close to X5’s, so it’s expected that the next generation model will push X5 even further upmarket.

 The space inside, ride height and boot area make this a very nice car to be inside. It's easily large enough to fit everything in that a family of 5 would need for a holiday and is a very relaxing...
