2020 BMW X5 vs. Its Competition

2020 BMW X5
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class is closest to the X5 in price, size, and mission.

It offers good engines, including a new V-8, and great tech.

The Audi Q8 is the two-row version of the Q7 crossover and it’s just as comfortable as the X5.

The Cadillac XT6 is a three-row crossover from Caddy that’s handsome from the outside but doesn’t feel as special inside.

The Acura MDX is an aged three-row crossover, but offers a hybrid powertrain that BMW doesn’t yet.

Same goes with the Volvo XC90, but it’s not as efficient with its interior space.
