Don't agree. I have taken the X5 off road with a Land Rover Discovery 4 (LR4). The X5 wasn't even close in capability.

When they launched the X5, BMW coined the term "Sports Activity Vehicle." There was a reason. No low range gearing, no locking diff. BMW intended the X5 to be a great school run vehicle, rainy day vehicle, light snow vehicle. Yes, it can handle mild off roading in a capable way, but let's not pretend it's a Land Rover.

And then there's the X6 . ..
