2010 BMW X5 Review

The 2010 BMW X5 has good performance, but with a tiny third row and poor gas mileage, it’s ranked near the bottom of the luxury midsize SUV class.

Pros & Cons

  • Sporty handling
  • Plenty of power
  • Fuel-efficient available diesel engine
  • Poor gas mileage from most models
  • Tiny third row

2010 BMW X5 Overview

The 2010 BMW X5 has a BMW badge, sporty performance and three rows of seats, which may be enough to close the deal with some buyers. It offers a fuel-efficient diesel engine, standard all-wheel drive and an impeccably-made interior. There’s even a high-performance M model. For a performance-oriented SUV, it’s hard to outpace the BMW X5.

However, nearly every other midsize crossover is more practical. The X5’s available third row is cramped, and its iDrive infotainment controls were confusing to many testers. Every model besides the diesel-powered X5 xDrive35d gets fuel economy that ranges from poor to abysmal. Rivals also offer better cargo space. If you’re a BMW enthusiast and you can’t tear yourself away from the blue and white roundel in your quest for a used luxury SUV, you’ll likely be fine with the BMW X5. But other shoppers will find that many other luxury crossovers will suit their needs better.

Other Cars to Consider

If you’re sold on a German luxury crossover, consider the 2010 Audi Q7. The Q7’s back seat isn’t quite as cramped as the BMW’s, and it also offers an available diesel engine. The Q7 also has an easier to use infotainment system than the X5.

If performance matters less to you than safety, dependability and interior luxury, take a look at the 2010 Lexus RX 350. It’s not particularly fun to drive, but it has strong safety scores and a smooth ride that’s comfortable over rough roads. Plus, test drivers loved its interior tech and well-made cabin.
