Excellent. It offers great comfort and stability; great fuel rang, over 500 miles normal driving with 650 miles available on a long run. And, during the recent severe weather conditions, mobility. I live on a steep hill with an even steeper drive which includes quite a sharp bend. The car coped well with only standard Michelin road tyres. All my friends who joked about my "Chelsea Tractor" were laughing on the on the other side of their faces.

Would I have another X5? You bet.

A car full of technology but ride quality is seriously hindering my enjoyment this time around - will definitely be looking at Range Rover and possibly even the new Jag XJ next time around

Great car, great combination of performance and comfort. Local dealer could be better though.
