Review

The X5 is a smooth, classy and luxurious SUV, but not as practical as its best rivals and relatively expensive to buy. Opt for the xDrive45e, though, and you are buying one of the most impressive plug-in hybrids around, combining all the best points of the standard X5 with a substantial real-world electric range.

Trim: M Sport

This version of the X5 gets sporty looks and bigger alloy wheels but little else of much substance, so it isn’t really worth the additional cost.

Engine: xDrive40i

A lovely, smooth 3.0-litre six-cylinder twin-turbo petrol with a sporty engine note when pushed hard. It’s powerful, too, which makes it great fun to drive, but the problem is its thirst, so it’s only recommendable if you do relatively few miles – or don’t mind splashing out on fuel.
