Motor Trend latest ranking shows that BMW X5 is now considered the best midsize luxury SUV.

Motor Trends cites improved handling and dynamics, smooth and strong acceleration, and “sublime” interior as the main criteria that gave X5 the top spot. They also point out that if you want to put sports cars to shame, you can order BMW X5 M which comes with a 600 horsepower engine.

At German Auto Sport we have always been big fans of the X5. While the 2011 model did suffer from excessive oil consumption, and 2012 X5 was reported to be prone to oil leaks, overall BMW X5 is a fantastic vehicle.
