The Top Gear car review:BMW X5
Final thoughts and pick of the range
BMW has got to know crossover buyers well, and has built a really solid entry. The basics are right. It’s competent, and you don’t have to spend a pile on options to get a desirable spec.
It’s superbly powered, and great to steer notwithstanding our reservations about the 4WS. It actually will go off-roading too.
The cabin is roomy and comfortable, but did it have to be this flash?
