2011 BMW X5 Review Ratings
2011 BMW X5 xDrive35d Review
power, handling, all wheel drive, diesel, comfort
small storage space.
Fantastic Driver — This vehicle combines the power and handling of a sports car with the utility of a SUV. It has great creature comforts and although you pay top dollar for them, the add ons are worth it.. Great cruising range due to it being a diesel and getting 28 plus miles per gallon on the highway at reasonable highway speeds (70 - 75 mph)
Primary Use: Family transportation
2011 BMW X5 xDrive35d Review
Nice, sports car feel in a big bus
not as big as I'd like
X5 35d — We wanted an VW touareg tdi execuline; bought this for almost $20k less. Satisfactory. Nice perormance, good economy, good drivers car. Not a fan of the front seat, uncomfortable on long rides. Great acceleration, superb handling. I don't like the x drive 4wd. the way it cuts power, even with the button pushed to remove the control, is not good when you are fighting snow storms. All in all, satisfactory, but not superb.

Its The Ultimate Driving Machine.
This is definitely a great car to drive. I have driven many SUV's before, but the BMW X5 is in a class of its own. An amazing combination of power , beauty and technology all engineered in one machine... Read More
The BMW X5 is a stupid car. First because it isn't an off-road suv, absolutely not, and costs too much. Yes, you can say that is fast, but why i need a fast suv?? i don't need it, so i think that it'... Read More
There really isn't enough words to justify this car. The entire series seems to get better with every model. Just on performance alone the car beats any other in its class. Braking and handling makes ... Read More
An Suv That Drives Like A Car.
Shockingly good handling when coupled with the adaptive suspension. Plenty of power from the 4.8L V8. Truly easy to live with on a day to day basis. Head up display option is a must! Will not buy an... Read More
