2015 BMW X5 Review
says:
We had a bad experience during the test drive with errant alarms and the wife being child locked in the rear seats. Also, direct fuel injection is a technological marvel but makes racket consistent with diesel engines. Seems like more firewall insulation would help. Fit and finish are world champs and BMW seats should be doctor approved.

Overall:

Powerful And Easy To Drive — The new model BMW X5 is not a pretty as the old model, just more aggressive in its styling. Looks great with the 21 inch wheel options. The engine is power and torque is plenty in the 5.0i model. The best bits to this new model is the improvement in interior finishing and the significant upgrade in technology both in the idrive menu and safety features, such as surround cameras, sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and blind spot warning, crash reduction and better heads up display with colour. The tailgate is now powered. The interior of this BMW is nice place to be. The cons, is few, the only thing my initial dislike in driving this new model is my mental comparison with the older X5 with adaptive air suspension. The newer model with standard suspension handles more like an SUV than the older X5 with air suspension. Having said that, we tested a new model Range Rover, which truly drives like an SUV with significantly poorer body control. Second, the steering is much lighter in the newer X5, which makes it easier to drive but feels less sporty. So depends on your preference.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great engine, great handling for a large SUV

Cons: Needs adaptive air suspension to truly shine
