The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2008 BMW X5 is better than ever, but could use more dramatic styling and an iDrive transplant. The 2008 Lexus GX 470 brings off-road credentials to the Lexus brand, but its skimpy rear-seat room and sluggish performance tarnish the image.
