What The Critics Say

"If you want a midsize-luxury-crossover SUV that feels more like a sports sedan than a traditional SUV, put the BMW X5 on your list. If a new diesel SUV is on your wish list, the X5 is one of just a few in this segment to still offer one." - Kelley Blue Book (KBB)

"Great room for five, good cargo capacity, and a well-wrought interior are all assets for the BMW X5." - The Car Connection
