Default Another SQ5 victim...

My wife and I traded in her X5 diesel for a 2015 SQ5 last night. It's Glacier White with Black leather/alcantara. It wasn't our first choice when shopping for a new suv, but we fell in love once we test drove it. The acceleration is very smooth and linear. It also has less body roll than the X5d. We were surprised by the amount of space inside the cabin. Overall, my wife is happy which is all that matters.

Pictures to follow.

Congrats! You will love your new SQ5. I've had mine since November and I still get a big grin whenever I get in to drive. :-)

Just wondering what packages you had on your X5? I'm planning on doing the same, but I thought the SQ5 was considerably softer then my X5 with adaptive drive in Sport mode. Hoping a set of KWs can clean that up though.

It is amazing how BMW managed to make the interior so much smaller then the exterior when compared to the SQ5.

Thanks mjfloyd1. It was a 2011. We had no complaints with the X5d, it treated us well. Both are great suv's, just depends on what your needs are.

We didn't have adaptive drive or Msport, so I can only speak for the standard suspension. The ride was a bit fluffier and had more sway.

Yes, it is amazing how efficient the cabin of the sq5 is. I'm also thinking about throwing some kw's on.

Congrats! Love the interior. I too still smile whenever I drive it. And I love nothing more than driving through a tunnel.
