On this week's episode of CarAdvice, Trent Nikolic and Paul Maric go over BMW's all-new X5 SUV, Volkswagen's success with brand loyalty, and a sales slump in China.


One of BMW's most popular models, the big X5 SUV, has been renewed for a new generation. We've got pricing and details right here, and a review here too.

Say what you will about Volkswagen's transgressions in recent times, the brand knows how to keep fans on side – as this brand loyalty survey appears to prove.

Elsewhere, Ford, GM, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volkswagen suffer big declines in the world's largest market. What does that mean for us?
