The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW X5 lightens up its look and its act with a warmer cabin, lots of techno handling tricks, and standout safety gear. For active families who need to tow a boat or occasionally head off-pavement–but don't need a third row–the 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML is an excellence vehicle choice.
