Editor's Overview

BMW’s X5 luxury- crossover SUV for 2016 may not return the same smooth ride as a Lexus RX or Audi Q7, but in the areas of acceleration and dynamic handling abilities, only the Porsche Cayenne comes close. Whether it’s the plug-in hybrid or muscular M, the X5 has the power to deliver miles of smiles.
