TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW X4 drops the off-roading, cargo-carrying pretense, and goes for what some BMW owners really want: attention. The 2015 BMW X5 is a handsome, capable, tech-filled vehicle for the shopper who wants a luxury SUV. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class doesn't crow about off-roading: it's more concerned with things like fuel economy and in the AMG, superhero acceleration.
