When it comes to luxury SUVs, the BMW X5 sits at the top of a tree that features heavyweights such as the Mercedes M-Class, VW Touareg, Range Rover Sport, Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and Porsche Cayenne. This balance of power in the European axis has existed for a long time and it doesn’t look like it will change anytime soon. A choice of any of these is as good as the other and it usually boils down to personal preference. The newly added 7 seat option in the X5 is a game changer and a clear advantage only shared with the XC90 and the Q7.
