sgCarMart – If you like the idea of having blistering power in an unsuspecting-looking vehicle, the X5s we have sampled previously (50i and M50d) would have had your eyes peeled.
What we have here, though, is the base 30d, which in comparison has two fewer cylinders than the range-topping petrol, one less turbo than the M50d, and therefore comes with less accompanying performance.
Unfortunately, because diesels are still vying and trying hard to shed their tainted image, petrol is the 'default' choice in Singapore.
We reckon, however, that you shouldn't be too quick to jump to conclusion. Just as we thought the junior diesel would be mediocre in most aspects - dynamic abilities, level of equipment, etc. - we were left pretty impressed after we took it out for a drive.
