The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.4
8.6

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2010 BMW X5 offers impressive handling and features, but lacks the styling and interior that makes competitors pop, while the X5 M offers nearly sports car levels of performance with all the utility of a standard X5. The 2010 Escalade Hybrid provides performance, functionality, and luxury, but uses far less fuel.
