The Car Connection's Take

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 2011 Land Rover Range Rover is a bit pricey, but it delivers a lot of value, too.
