Odd question. I have an S500 that I rarely drive. My sister has an X5, which she loves, especially in harsh Chicago winters. I don't see how you can compare the two. I guess. if you lived in a harsh winter climate, and you had to pick one as your only vehicle, I'd take the X5. I don't drive my MB's in winter weather.
