Our overall rating:Rated 4 out of 5

The original BMW X5 was one of the first road-focused 4x4s, and this third-generation model is even further removed from the off-road roots its looks belie – some versions don’t even have four-wheel drive.

Instead, the latest X5 focuses on offering the qualities that prestige SUV buyers demand: space for the family, a commanding driving position and the sort of plush interior that used to be reserved for luxury cars.

It's also one of the best-handling cars of its kind, and is available with six engines: a four-cylinder diesel, three six-cylinder diesels and two V8 petrols.

However, the latest X5 faces a tougher task than any of its predecessors, because it has to fend off competition from some very strong rivals, including the Mercedes GLE, and the latest Audi Q7, Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne.

You can read about previous versions of the BMW X5 here. Or, for everything you need to know about the latest model before buying one, read on over the next few pages.
