Much preferred the interior of the previous model, especially the driver's seat which was much more comfortable. I am 6' and 12 stone, but my knees catch against the memory setting switch on the right hand door and the sharp dashboard side edge on the left. It would help if there was more range of adjustment on the steeering wheel, especially in and out. Some good features like the tyre pressure display and my car has Sat-Nav which is very good. Overall, technically impressive, I just wished it was more comfortable to drive.
Have only had the car for a week and am very impressed. Bought it as an ex-demonstrator and it has everything on it including sat nav,rear dvd player,bluetooth hands-free kit and the Startech(a Brabus subsidiary) SD6 engine chip.This makes an excellent engine into really powerful beast.BHP increases to 262 @ 4000rpm and torque goes up to an amazing 430 lb/ft @ 1600-4000rpm! 0-60mph is around 8seconds. Fuel comsumption is around the published figures, which is quite acceptable for a big,powerful engine. The accelaration at overtaking speeds is excellent. The engine remapping does not invalidate the warranty and did not affect the insurance.
It tows my caravan with ease and is very steady on the road at all speeds. Have not tried it off-road yet but i am sure that with its pedigree all will be well.
This vehicle is a great improvement on previous models and represents good value for money against the opposition..
The car is excellent. My car is the Overland 5.7 and the equipment levels are excellent - basically everything is included.
The sat-nav is the best I have used. The car's handling is unbelievable and enjoyable.
This is certainly the best car I have owned and great value, as I bought it when it was six months old from a dealer.
I have owned this car for three months now and covered 5000 miles. I have to say I think its fantastic.
It returns economy of 30mpg going to Devon this Christmas at speeds up to 90mph. I have owned a BMW X5 previously, but for the same specification, it was £15,000 more, as the model I bought, the Overland, has absolutely everything on it.
The steering is not quite as positive as X5, which was very good, but on the Overland model which has bigger wheels, it has a fair European feel.
With a diesel remap, the engine is more responsive and fuel economy is about 10% better (it's a Mercedes diesel).
Most importantly, as the main user, my wife loves it. Why pay £15,000 more for an X5?
