Review
The X5 has great road presence and is extremely practical with the 7 seat option. At speed on the highway, especially with cross-winds, it does not feel as planted as other models. This may be different in a sport model with larger engine, more weight and stiffer suspension

What I like
Large solidly built car with lots to offer those in need of large boot space .
Ideal for long road-trips

What I do not like
High tech features are missing in base models. Worth looking at Volvo XC90 fr comparison.
Price
Fuel consumption.

Review
Test drove this when it first came to our shores sometime back but yet to launch at that time, where not able to write review here as its stated as pending launch or so until now. My bad.

First looks from outside, is small WOW, large car with large exterior but not much changes to its curves and blends.

Inside of the interior, is a bigger WOW factor as interior posh has up-marketed from the posh BMW that you see usually.

Boot space is indeed large and with full 7 seats, the 3rd row is pretty comfortable for an adult to sit in.

The tailgate is DUAL where flips top and also the bottom, perfect for back seat enjoyment and it has a feature button to lower the car when open the lower portion.

Built on a new platform and design, the dated buttons here and there have radically changed and comes with multi touch screens where the conventional conti car turnable knob for headlights has changed to button controls too.

The drive off comes with a whopping 3.0L 300 plus BHP that steers you off instantly. Gear changes is a breeze for this 8 speeder and intense throttle you get the power you need anytime.

Comes with many features from active display, active driving assistance suite, surround sensors and many more.

Bottom line, if you have a stretchable budget of S$300k to spare and needed space, this is what you should get for its engaging drive (where others cannot seem to be able to test drive like the GLE or a heftier price like the Range Rover).

What I like
A LARGE full size 7 Seater SUV.
New platform from the dated ones.
Unstoppable power in it despite its weight.
Full set of Active Driving Assistance as standard.
Dual tailgate with lowering of car.
Laser headlights.
Engaging drive.

What I do not like
Price tag (as at 15 June 2019) of S$371k.
Difficulty when comes to tight places.
