Cons of the X5 SUV
There are very few cons about this vehicle, as it is made to please with the utmost quality with the driver and passengers in mind. The biggest negative about the X5 is the fuel mileage. Despite the large horsepower, it throws back the fuel economy to only 19 mpg on the xDrive48i, 21 mpg on the xDrive301, and gears up the most on the xDrive25d to 26 mpg.
This makes for many gas stops during the week, especially if you drive long distances to work. The navigation system is not the easiest on the eyes. The color scheme makes it difficult to keep track of the streets.
