The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The benchmark of mid-size luxury SUVs, the 2016 BMW X5 offers handsome looks, a choice of powertrains, an abundance of tech features, sporty on-road dynamics, and even some off-road capability. Imagine what a full-size luxury SUV should be and you'll almost certainly picture the 2016 Cadillac Escalade.
