What alternatives should I consider to a used BMW X5 4x4?
The Porsche Cayenne might lack the option of seven seats but it is otherwise the only large SUV that can claim to be better to drive than the X5, as well as being a capable off roader.
The Range Rover Sport is also worth a look, although its infotainment system isn’t as good as BMWs and running costs will be higher.
If you’re looking at a nearly new X5 it’s also worth considering the latest version of the Volvo XC90 or Audi Q7. Both offer slightly more space and interiors that are even plusher the BMW’s.
