Yea, I think the ML rear end looks way better. X5 front and interior looks really nice, though.

Not a fair comparison.
The current X5 is much much better IMO.

IMO Interior is far better looking than exterior on both cars. Rear end is extremely ugly on both cars. Again JMO

Range Rover must be very happy, the new Sport is head and shoulders better looking than this effort, which is a step backwards from the current model.

The more I see this absolutely uggly Benz, the more it remembers me of seing a Sang Yong !
How can a manufacturer release such piece of crap, even worse, how can people buy such a thing?
The new X5 will yet have to make its proves, but it is all in all an acceptable evolution of the E70, especially with a good looking a more modern dashboard, integrating the modell range of BMW.

Thanks for the pics of the Rover.

After looking at them one after the other. I like the new x5 more. I like the x5's interior more, it looks more dynamic and I like the overall look of the exterior better. The full size range rover looks better then the sport IMO. Seeing that next to an X5 might be a harder decision.

The Mercedes wins from the front profile no question... But it looks so ugly from every other angle. BMW wins again.

The new X5's side profile looks like a Volkswagen
