The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 BMW X5 is one of the better-handling utility vehicles of any shape, and a newly available diesel makes it even more appealing, but its styling and interior fail to wow. The 2009 Porsche Cayenne isn’t as practical as other SUVs its size, but it handles like a Porsche.
