2020 BMW X5 M review

The BMW X5 M was one of the pioneers of the super-fast SUV segment, but cars like this are still an engineering marvel. How anyone can make a 2.3-tonne lump of metal slip through the air like a teardrop – even though it has the aerodynamic efficiency of a block of flats – boggles the mind.

2015 BMW X5 M v Porsche Cayenne Turbo : Comparison Review

Traditionally, the sportscar concept embraced lightness and simplicity – a less is more approach. Increasingly, though, the makers of the BMW X5 M from Munich and Porsche Cayenne Turbo from Stuttgart – together with Affalterbach arch rival Mercedes-AMG – threaten to burst the conventional ‘sportiness’ pigeonhole at the seams plying extensive feature lists, excess in luxury and extremes of high performance in formulating their range-leading Sport Utility Vehicles...

2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i review

My wife and I bought this car to replace a diesel powered Range Rover product that we had no end of issues with. When its warranty expired we decided that we had to get rid of it. The BMW X5 had been a vehicle that we had desired for some time but we couldn’t afford a new one, but with some extensive research we managed to locate a low kilometre, one-owner vehicle for a reasonable and affordable price, and so a Sophisto Grey xDrive 35i joined our garage...

2019 BMW X5 xDrive30D M Sport review

This is the third X5 we have purchased. The prior two were the F15 first gen and the updated model. The last X5 we had for 4 years and it proved to be a reliable family car, therefore we decided to give the G01 model a go. The new car is a 30D with M Sport pack, 7 seats, and air suspension...

2017 BMW X5 xDrive 40e iPERF (hybrid) review

Our journey with plug in hybrid electric vehicles started with the purchase of an Audi A3 e-tron early in 2016. We loved its smoothness, refinement and the convenience of being able to charge the car from home. The A3 e-tron was a great car, but as we transitioned into our early retirement phase, we wanted to do more driving holidays, so we needed a bigger car and one that could swallow up long distances in comfort...

2013 BMW X5 xDrive 50i Sport review

We had an addition in the family, so I opted for an SUV, and in this case SAV. I always wanted a BMW, so I decided to get my first BMW X5. I have driven BMWs before, as my family previously had different BMWs including an 750i, 335i M Sport, 335is convertible and an M4. I'm stating this to let the readers know that I am an experienced BMW driver...
