    Default Compare BMW X5 with ...

    A friend who is not technical minded wishes to sell of his BMW X5 2.8L Diesel and buy another equivalent or better vehicle.

    Considerations are durability (as he travels a lot and sometimes in rural areas too), comfort and space.

    Compare a BMW X5 with a comparable SUV and the reasons why would you prefer it over it.

    Anyone who has driven a couple or few will be more welcome. Some options that I can lay down are Toyota/Lexus Land Cruiser, Mercedes M Class, GL Class, Nissan Patrol, Nissan X-Trail, Range Rover ...

    Personally I have short listed Mercedes GL-450.

    Only learned comments needed, please.

    I have moved your thread to 4x4 section where you can get healthy comments.
    Nothing to see here.

    Range Rover would be a nice change from an X5 !
    Comfortable, Spacious, decent at travelling in rural areas as well
    .

    It may have something to do with seeing the Mercedes star on the hood guiding the way, the Benz specific solid feel, the Power, the Looks, the Prestige, but whatever it is, its intoxicating!!

    there are not a lot of competitors of BMW X5
    its just two main competitors
    Range Rover
    Audi Q7
    Volvo XC 90
    Lexus RX

    Others are not even close
    Surf pajeros are basically rough 4x4 cars used in villages for farming mostly and they fall in same catagory of Toyota SSr range
    Audi is like a disease once it gets in your blood there is no going back

    we just test drove Bmw X5 4.8, Audi Q7 3.6, Mercedes GL 450..

    in terms of driving and handling Bmw x5 all the way..

    but the 3rd row has no leg space, Audi just dont have the feel of Bmw, if you are driving a Q7 u know you are driving a big Suv and again no space in 3rd row..

    GL 450 is the most luxurious if loaded and has the most amount of space..
    if u need 7 seats go 4 Mercedes otherwise for 5 persons BMW x5 all the way...

    Thanks everyone for your comments. Most are mere comments but please note that there should be reason for even gut feeling!

    Considering that the person has already used an X5, the new ride should not remind him of his good old X5.

    Based on the few sane comments I prioritise as follows:

    1. GL 450 - I believe will cost him a little more but has seating for 7 and in no way less than X5 in any section.

    2. Range Rover - Must have good durability ratings.

    3. Land Cruiser - Go east, go west, land cruiser is the best! Well this is what I found on various websites. Only that it will be a bit harsher on his pocket!


    Now please let me know where as the show rooms (if they are there) for Mercedes and Range Rover located.

    Plus although not relevant, but I also mentioned to him the Porsche Cayenne. So where is porsche's show room!

    Info needed for Islamabad.
