Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Updated styling for 2020.New infotainment system with two screens.New V6 engine with more power than last year.

Pros
Exceptional interior materials and build quality
Excellent ride quality regardless of road surface
Plenty of safety and infotainment technology features
Surprisingly agile handling

Cons
Offers less cargo space than most competitors
Cramped third-row seat
New infotainment system is distracting to use

The Q7 receives an extensive facelift for 2020, including updated exterior styling, more technology features on the inside, and a new turbocharged V-6 engine is now optional and is identified by the "55" badge; a turbo four-cylinder remains the base engine, and Q7s powered by this powertrain wear "45" badges. The 2020 Q7 also adopts the two-row Q8 SUV's touchscreen-heavy interior, featuring a large infotainment display stacked on top of another secondary display that handles vehicle settings and climate control.

Pros
Back-road athleticism, beautiful and high-tech cabin, three-row versatility.

Cons
Pricey with extras, snug third row, subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.

For 2021, the X5's xDrive50i model has been replaced by the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e. The new plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and an electric motor for a total output of 389 horsepower. A 24.0-kWh battery pack is said to provide up to 30 miles of electric-only driving range. The regular 40i models also receive some light electrification in the form of a 48-volt hybrid system.

Pros
Wide range of available engines,
high-quality cabin materials,
intuitive infotainment interface.

Cons
Somewhat vague steering feel,
tight third-row passenger space,
V-8 performance costs a lot extra.
