And in keeping with the BMW theme – 8 Series or S-Class Coupe?

The 2019 'G05' BMW X5 is a styling hit – at least, compared to its predecessor – according to our latest reader poll.

Although it adopts a typically evolutionary design, the new X5 is larger than the car it replaces, and significantly more advanced under the skin.

Up front, it runs with a much larger kidney grille than before, with more angular headlights and a chiselled jawline. The rear is a more significant departure from tradition, trading a kicked-up light signature for slimline tail-lights with a new LED signature.

According to 77 per cent of respondents, the new look is an improvement over the outgoing model, itself just four years old.


In keeping with the all-BMW theme of last week, we're pitting the all-new 8 Series against its nearest rival, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe. Is the second-ever 8er a winner, or would you prefer the three-pointed star?
