For years, the BMW X5 has enjoyed its position in the luxury SUV market as one of the best allrounders. In this latest G05 fourth generation, the BMW X5 has grown again in size. The big one piece grille was the talking point in 2019, but I have gotten over them now especially after having seen what the newer BMWs will be coming with. And in any case, big grilles on X5 and X7 are okay because they go well with the size of the carand it is when they put it on a smaller car that they tend to look out of place.
