4dr SUV turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6 8-speed shiftable automatic AWD

Why the 2011 BMW X5?

Powertrain performance

Decent fuel economy for the class with good acceleration.


This car felt more composed and "smaller" on the road than any other full sized SUV I drove.

Interior styling

Third row is adequate for occasional use, especially for the dog. Anything with a bigger third row was too big overall.

Why Not the 2011 BMW X5?

Interior styling

BMW styling is a step behind Audi. It is very functional, but unattractive.

Controls and instruments

BMW turn signal stalks are the worst in any car I've driven. They switch off too quickly and always return to home, even when they are on. The dashboard turn signal lights are hidden by the steering wheel, so it can be difficult to know when on.

Cargo capacity

The trailer hitch is a $2000 plus option.
