Check out the video below!

BMW'S second-generation X5 wagon is a rework of a successful format, a combination of soft-road abilities and good on-road dynamics wrapped up in a prestige package.

The restyled X5 is bigger, allowing for the option of seven seats, and with a number of engine-transmission-chassis refinements, which ensure the wagon remains a competent and comfortable back roads tourer.

The BMW has amazing poise and performance for a high-riding two-tonne machine and pick of the bunch (again) as a touring wagon is the 3.0-litre diesel-powered X5.

It is a pity then that some new technology showcased here - the run-flat tyres, the iDrive controls, the “keyless” ignition and fancy transmission lever - do not always lend themselves to long distance runs down outback tracks.
