2012 BMW X5 xDrive35i Sport Activity 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
On the highway, in the passing lane….this is where the BMW X5 sets itself apart.
It holds the lane so well and it WANTSto go fast.
It is so comfortable on a long trip home from the ski slopes, you look at other vehicles that you pass from the far left lane and think to yourself…"Gosh, I'm sorry you're not driving this"
Its not about the emblem, its about the strength and soul under the hood. This all sounds a bit melodramatic, but see for yourself…compare an X5 to a Lexus GX…it is no contest.
Strong acceleration reminds me of a 747 taking off.
Holds lane tight. Really like the iDrive control knob and iPod interface.
Easy and more safe to use than a touch screen.
