BMW X5 - most family-oriented vehicle
The 2007 BMW X5 Sports Activity Vehicle, a tall station wagon by any other definition, is the least self-absorbed, most inclusive, most family-oriented vehicle BMW has developed and built to date.
The X5 began as a 2000 model and since then has become the most traditional sport-utility vehicle. BMW is spending millions of dollars on advertising bashing traditional SUVs and telling everyone that their new X5 is different.
The X5 3.0si model is powered by a in-line six-cylinde engine and the X5 4.8i is powered by a 4.8-liter V8.
The new X5, in a major break from traditionally snobbish BMW-think, can accommodate two "big gulp" drinks, right up there on the floor-mounted center console, which is where most Americans and South Carolinians want them.
Although BMW executives are afraid of using "family" in any description of their new X5, the vehicle itself screams the word. Now, it is offered with more interior space, enough for an optional third-row of seats suitable for small children. With the second-row and third-row seats up, enough space remains for a week’s worth of groceries for a family of five.
