TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 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 Land Rover LR4 takes on tough terrain with ease, and it's become more adept at imparting a carlike driving feel. The 2009 Porsche Cayenne isn’t as practical as other SUVs its size, but it handles like a Porsche.
