BMW luxury and build quality; standard all-wheel drive; new, more powerful engines
BMW's X5 offers seating for seven with high-tech on- and off-road capabilities. And with great styling as well as a host of refinements throughout its development, the package is hard to ignore. Although it ranks among the more expensive SUVs in its class, it's a strong competitor, offering a wide range of options not found on the Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350 or Mercedes M-Class.
