If someone wants a vehicle for the road that handles well while having lots of storage space and practicality, why not get a station wagon? What's wrong with a 3 series or 5 series wagon? Heck, bmw should have made an M3 and M5 wagon. Makes more sense than X5M or X6M. SUVs will always be heavy and have a high centre of gravity, so whether they carry an M badge or not the will never be as stable and well planted on the road as a car.
Yeah, but for an SUV, I do not believe there is one that feels as planted at speed and turns. There's very little body roll and the X5M sits pretty low, the fat tires are nice too.
