Main problem with X5 is that they're normally fitted with wrong wheels and tyres for off road. Change them and it should be reasonable.
X3 and X6 probably are off road jokes regardless.
Most 4WDs - even RRs and Discos never go off road. I've seen RRs and Discos with ultra low profile tyres - they look ridiculous.
The X6 is just an admission that the market is a bit strange.
