X5 sales figures ......

I don't know the numbers, but I do know BMW are expecting 50% of all X5's sold to have the third-row as an option on the new model.

 

I'd say that suggests two things....

 

1.  More pre-2013 models have them than I thought

2.  They are expecting much higher demand due to *something* (whatever *something* is)

 

So basically, no I don't know.:roflmao:

Believe it or not, part of that holds true...

 

But only in relation to the size of the car.

 

They are expecting 50% of people to buy them because the additional space means that the third row leaves more space for occupants and luggage.  A major criticism on the outgoing model was that installing the third row wasn't practical for those with all but small children because it robbed the car of luggage space.

Yes, but the feeling in the X5 was that it robbed it of too much space and still provided room only for very small children.  Some, including Chick, obviously didn't find that an issue.  But others seemed to, hence from what I have heard BMW didn't sell as many cars with the 3rd row option as they might have liked to.

I have an E53. My metric is the double pushchair which, in MrsP's A6, would fit in sideways, with loads more room in front of it for other stuff. However it completely fills the boot of the X5. 

 

In fact, looking up the figures, the A6 Saloon boot is 1660 ltr, the X5 1550 ltr. Is the A6 just a particular huge boot? I just expected the X5, which I perceive as a much bigger car, to have a much bigger boot.

Mine is an E70 - it is plenty big enough, even as a family of 6 plus a dog (albeit a small one nowadays).  Can't think of any time we have thought the boot could do with being a bit bigger even when the youngest had a buggy too.  In fact it is now replaced with bikes and scooters and the dog cage .......
