Bmw X5 has been named the luxury used car of the decade

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

CAP, UK's independent used car pricing experts, has named the BMW X5 as the luxury used car of the decade. These experts at estimating residual value and whole life costs applauded the X5 for setting a new benchmark and taking the 4x4 from the field and putting it on the motorway.

The group is appreciative for the most part, for making it seem like the BMW X5 has always belonged there.

Those who served as judges cited the X5's effortless usability, faultless build quality and strong influence on the marketplace.

Mike Hind, CAP Communications Manager, in talking about the 2000-2006 X5, said that the car appeals to the used car buyer who does need a workhorse, with towing power and room for the whole family's holiday load.

At the same time, the car also offers the opportunity to leave the green wellingtons and the horse box at home and enjoy driving as a pleasure in itself. Since its inception in 2000, the BMW X5 has been popular with British car buyers, selling 65,353 units since its launch.

The X5 was the first model to feature BMW's acclaimed xDrive four-wheel-drive system. It has also inspired other BMWs as well as other manufacturers to create this new class of vehicle.
