Smooth, refined diesel engine; classy interior; seven-seat flexibility; plenty of good features
Low tow ball weight; faulty fuel sender unit; urban focus limits outright off-road potential
Spacious and comfortable as always; new infotainment upgrades a plus in the GXL; safety improvements a leap forward; direct injection and eight-speed auto make the Kluger feel more modern
A "modest" price increase could mean value equation still a tough one; foot-operated park brake; still no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto; eight-speed auto a big plus but still a bit sluggish at times
Proper seven-seater; great interior; enough power and torque regardless of detune; decent off-road ability; cabin ambience; interior spaciousness; great for large families
Not much cheaper than more powerful version; plenty of options required to make it look good; standard ride can be harsh, needs optional suspension; stop-start system very annoying
Very clever driveline which works smoothly within its range; punchy when charged; no loss of space or interior packaging due to hybrid platform; have I mentioned that stereo?
T8 is an expensive option and comes with compromised driving range; fuel economy claims are impossible to meet; cheeky option price increases
Core X5 product still an excellent, practical, family SUV; hybrid drive is very economical in the right conditions; impressive supporting iPhone app; silent luxury at its best.
Slow charging time vs limited EV range not a great ratio; extra weight and placement of battery pack compromises X5’s inherent handling; good luck finding a public charge point...
