2007 BMW X5 Review:
BMW finally got it right with the redesigned X5. BMW engineers and designers eliminated the clunky feel of the old X5 that contradicted BMW's "ultimate driving machine" image, and they successfully enhanced the utilitarian aspect of an SUV that lacked from the previous version. Because of X5's newly emphasized character as a driver's machine, a few of the passengers will complain about the ride being too firm. X5 is not a car for those who seek comfort in traditional American sense - large space with cushy seats and floating feel. X5 will hit the high note with those who seek a refined sporty SUV with plenty of utility. The sportiness of the vehicle will come in handy in complex city driving, and flat folding seats will become a decently comfortable camping bed for the children with the help of an inflatable cushion. The ever increasing price tag might be an obstacle for a lot of folks who vie an SUV with elevated level of sophistication, but X5 will certainly convert other luxury SUV owners to switch.
