BMW X5 Rent Dubai. Damn, the X5 is good to drive. Perhaps not quite as overtly sporty as previous models, but as an overall package, it really takes some beating, with a measured ride, crisp handling and near-total confidence in all weathers and all remotely road-based surfaces. To really venture a long way off-road you’ll still need a Range Rover, but for most people the BMW will suffice.
That 381bhp tri-turbo M50d is very amusing and immediate, with barely believable surge given its economy. But the xDrive30d, now with 258bhp, still does 0-62mph in 6.9 seconds, so is perfectly quick enough in its own right.
For the X6, read X5, but with a more sporting focus. It sounds unlikely, but BMW really has given it a nuance of driver-pleasing edge, though you’ll ultimately not escape the fact it’s a two-tonne SUV. Physics rules all.
BMW really pored over every aspect of the old X5 in order to make sure this one was better in every way. It’s now calmer inside, appreciably more hushed and smooth, while a subtle repackaging means there’s more space and flexibility. There’s still a seven-seat version and this is that bit easier to use: even more of a viable family-focused people carrier.
But it’s the generally higher quality of everything you see, touch and hear that’s the most overriding impression. This is the same for the X6, which shares the X5’s interior, although it doesn’t share its practicality: despite its bulk, it’s optimised for four, not seven, and the boot’s far from optimal.
