I like it. Very helpful comparison. Granted, the front of the 5 looks a bit exaggerated, but I think it's cool overall.

The exterior looks good to me. More modern, but not in an in-your-face fashion (a la RRS, but that might be a good thing a couple years from now).

The interior looks MUCH better than I expected.

'14 X5's competitor '14 RRS revealed

In my book, these two are competitors.

The new RRS looks too Evoque-ish to me, but I love some of the interior features and it seems to scream luxury. I'd be interested to see how it rides and if...

Disappointed so far, but I'm very skeptical of these leaked images. I have been debating between a RR and X5, and did not like the new RR's look (2013). It seems the new X5 is going in the same...

I did a lot of test driving with both the RRS and the LR4 vs. the X5. They are very different vehicles. In the Land Rovers, you definitely have the high, commanding presence, and there's a ton of...

I'd err toward Porsche Cayenne S, but it's a little unfair since with options I'd get it up to 86K pretty quick while the X5 hits about 69K for me. The interior of the Cayenne is unbelievably...

Torn between new X5 or '13 LR4

I drive an X3 now and like it a lot, but am looking for a larger vehicle with more oomph. I'm torn between waiting on the new X5 this year, or going with a '13 LR4 with the luxury package.

Am I...

I like the front, not the back at all. I have an X3 now and if this were a little smaller I'd say, oh, the updated the X3!

Looks like a slightly more feminine version of the current-gen X5 to me, albeit, the potential for a more useable third row and of course any new technologies may be enough to steer me to it.

I don't know if this helps but when I read the "pros" list for the X3 I was smiling and nodding while for the Q5 I was like "ehh."

Interesting that BMW tops the list, but only for its SUVs. I thought the new 3 series might crack the list.

That's better than having your one-year old throw it in the trash Sunday night and realizing too late as the trash collectors wish it away to a landfill probably in New Jersey. :cry:

I really wanted it but preferred a black exterior, which is not the best combo with grayish brown. I'd steer to the white and silver palette for the best compliment.
