BMW X5 2016
Carsguide Senior Journalist Richard Berry had this to say at the time: The hybrid technology in the xDrive40e is awesome and it makes so much sense fitting it to an X5, which if we're honest with each other won't leave the city much and will probably sit in a lot of traffic. A big issue is the range – sure most Aussies live close to work, but in real world conditions it's less about range and more about energy needed to move the car. Just climbing a small hill over a short distance in electric only will see your charge drop fast. To get the super low fuel economy you'll need to charge it fully and regularly and fairly flat commuting terrain.You can read the full review here.
This is what Richard Berry liked most about this particular version of the BMW X5: Great motor and engine., Fuel efficient when charged each day., Subtle eco badging.
The 2016 BMW X5 carries a braked towing capacity of up to 2700 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

What would be the better SUV between the Volkswagen Touareg, BMW X5 and Toyota Prado?
I’m reluctant to recommend the Touareg, or the X5 for that matter. They are good cars, but can be expensive when things go wrong, and they are more likely to go wrong than is a Prado. I would definitely go for the Prado.
