The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
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. Despite some issues with practicality, the 2010 Porsche Cayenne is a luxurious and supremely capable performer.
