And some comments here say that the third row is too tiny even for toddlers. I'm wondering what make you people choose X5 over X3.

Any input is appreciated!
  • You can get a diesel in the X5. Not yet available for th X3
  • You CAN get 5 adults into a X5. You can NOT to that with the X3 (way too narrow for 3 adults in the back)
  • The X5 is a good bit bigger and handles differently (being built off a different chassis).
  • The X3 is OK and fine as long as the kids are small AND you don't need to take grandma with you on any long trips.
