VERY IMPRESSIVE! Not an SUV fan at all, but this has all the right lines. Those front and rear bumpers are sporty and elegant without being obnoxious. BMW really needs to look at this package closely.

On thing I don't care for though is the lack of a gear shifter. So for shifting manually, both hands must always be up on the steering wheel to work the paddles? How tiring to have both arms constantly angled up, with restricted blood flow . Other than in jr. high driving school or during track driving, does anyone acttually drive this way on a regular basis?

Tough call.
Previous gen ml, I would've said the M X5.

M X5 is now getting old in the design.

The power is amazing, the interior is much better. I'm glad they continue to invest in such a small volume car.

It is simply terrible to look at and even worse in person. They destroyed such a good looking SUV. That thing has terrible proportions.

but the badge is right
