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.
