    Sorry to say that I'm a happy Toyota driver (even with all the bad publicity they are currently going through) so for me it would be the new Toyota Landcruiser

    What's it like to drive?

    I dont understand the hype for the X5. Whilst my Landcruiser is being repaired after a non fault accident I was given the X5 Msport as a courtesy car and can say I dont like it. The ride in it is rock solid, you feel every bump on the road, fuel consumption is higher than my LC and there is hardly the space in it. I'v just about managed to get 3 kid seats in the back after spending some time re-arranging the seats until they all fit. I like the reviews where they state the X5 has off road capability.- Ha - lets put it this way you will be hurting if you even attempt driving over an uneven gravel road... This car was purley built to be driven up and down motorways and thats it. For that, and if you dont need the space to accomodate a large family the car is good.

    What's it like to park?

    no visability out the rear but the parking sensors are good and there is a display showing the space on the car screen.
