As for why we chose our X5 (with Diesel engine) - it has better MPG in our driving conditions (mostly city) than any other BMW SUV with V6 or V8 engine and the diesel fuel price is slightly cheaper than the premium gasoline here, the X5 has excellent seats (the Multi-Contour seats... Only Cayenne has equally good optional seats) and the hydraulic power steering which is appropriate for a BMW car and has excellent feedback at any speed. I don't think X3 has any of these
But X5 with Diesel is significantly more expensive than a X3 with standard packages, and X3 already satisfies our needs in two years. However, if the price difference is not that big, I would go for a X5, with a diesel engine!
