You might not like to admit it, but the BMW X5 is a damn good car.
A luxurious, quiet, efficient and durable crossover
Lexus makes a proper alternative to the default German premium SUVs, so long as you prefer efficiency and comfort to outright performance
BMW performance hatch that is also a bit of a bargain. It's not quite a 1M, but it's close.
