It feels like a Bimmer
By Familyman on


2007 BMW X5 3.0si 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6A)


This is one of the best handling SUVs (or SAV according to BMW) I've driven, equalled only by the new MDX. But what differentiates the X5 from the MDX are the tangible and intangible qualities of a BMW (handling, quiet cabin, solid build, "growl" of the engine, great styling and the looks you get on the street). We loaded the car up with lots of toys - let's hope it's as reliable as their airtight 4-yr maintenance program. The only areas of improvement are the unnecessarily complex iDrive and limited legroom in the 3rd row.

Best Features

Car-like handling (low center of gravity, 50:50 weight distribution), build quality, lots of interior room, great styling and modest fuel consumption.

Worst Features

iDrive, iDrive, iDrive! Backup camera images are too dark. 3rd row is for show, but not for people! Stiff suspension is a double-edged sword.
