Review

The X5 is a smooth, classy and luxurious SUV, but not as practical as its best rivals and relatively expensive to buy. Opt for the xDrive45e, though, and you are buying one of the most impressive plug-in hybrids around, combining all the best points of the standard X5 with a substantial real-world electric range.

Trim: xLine

This is the cheapest X5 version, but it’s still pretty lavish, with leather seats, air suspension, ambient lighting, LED headlights and an infotainment system bristling with extra features all coming as standard. You really don’t need anything more.

Engine: xDrive30d

This 3.0-litre diesel offers more than enough punch for most scenarios. It’s very economical, too, so while it’s a little louder than we’d like, it’s still our engine of choice.
