BMW retains its status as a maker of classic looking cars, even when swelled to this X5 size.
The front grille is large, and the bonnet quite extended, but that’s what happens when you beef up a car: everything featured is on a much bigger scale.
It’s also worth noting this car has been fitted with the 'M Sport Package' for an extra $9900 and includes things like 20-inch alloy wheels, which does make a difference to the overall exterior look.
Inside the car and you’d never guess this was the base model, because you can add things if you really want them. On this car, the seats have been upgraded with Extended Leather Trim' in black with brown contrast stitching for an extra $3200, and it has a panoramic sunroof for an extra $4000.
The leather steering wheel comes standard and feels great under the hands, and it’s been styled with a metallic trim along the dash and centre console. You can choose which trims you’d prefer and they are customisable if you are willing to pay for them.
