Taking on the crossover SUV market in 1999 with their X5 offering, BMW saw a great opportunity and jumped on it.
Car buyers were quickly learning that they could have a roomy SUV without the high running costs if the off-road equipment was cast-aside.
An optional four-wheel-drive system can be fitted for those who want extra traction with a little added weight but as standard, these cars come as rear-wheel-drive.
Pure SUVs have stronger suspension, axles, driveshafts and transmissions to cope with the extra weight - all adding extra metal to the car's chassis and increasing running costs.
Crossover SUVs like the X5 are built on the chassis of a car, this one was built on the same platform used by the 5-Series but with uprated suspension to deal with the extra weight.
Engine choices are also slightly larger to cope, ranging from modest inline-6-cylinder units all the way to torque-heavy V8's.
As is tradition with the BMW range an M-Sport version of the X5 is available with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine powering all four wheels.
From the outside it isn't obvious to the passerby that the X5 M is a performance car due to only subtle changes to its appearance.
