The BMW X5 is a big selling large premium SUV. It rivals the Mercedes GLE, the Audi Q7 and the Range Rover Sport. The BMW X5 is available with a range of powerful engines including a twin turbo in the M version. Diesels are the most popular in the UK though, and a new plug-in hybrid version the X5, called the 40e, has been added to the range to deliver strong performance but with lower running costs than the other petrol engines. This is the model our reviewer Mat Watson is testing here. However, this review is for the whole X5 range. And you can watch our individual videos of the car's practicality and infotainment systems. Plus you can join Mat for a passenger ride thanks to our 360 degrees camera.

      I love the channel and the reviews. I have an X5 and have been told by a BMW main dealer workshop controller of 26 years of experience that the X5 eats tyres. It's due to the suspension set up. The rear tyres wear on the extreme inner edges and can go down to the canvas but the rest of the tyre has 4 to 5 mm left on it. Similarly the fronts wear on the extreme outer edges. Guess what BMW UK deny all knowledge of this. I spent £700 on a set of rear tyres. Not very happy.

      This X5 is a badge away from being a Mitsubishi. BMW has lost it's signature styling. I'm just waiting for Car Wow to do a comparison between this X5, the Q7/5, CX5 and CRV.
