Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Wi-Fi hotspot now standard,no other significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Tremendously powerful six-cylinder engine
Grip and handling are excellent
Sleeker styling than the related X3 M

Cons
Excessively stiff ride
Rear headroom is a bit tight
Sloping roofline compromises cargo space and visibility

By:

Like several other BMWs, the X4 M gains Android Auto and SiriusXM satellite radio as standard features for the 2021 model year. Otherwise, the flashy fastback SUV remains unchanged.

Pros
Abundance of horsepower,
impressively quick acceleration,
deft handling.

Cons
Stiff suspension can be harsh over bumps,
not as practical as X3 M,
polarizing rear styling.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Pros
Balanced power delivery
Impressive grip and balance
Fun on tap in 4WD Sport setting
Transmission refinement

Cons
Punishing ride
Only subtly different next to regular X4
Not as pointed as a full-fledged M4

Audi has simplified the Q3 lineup for 2021 by dropping the top-flight Prestige trim level and splitting its features into available Technology or Convenience packages on the remaining Premium and Premium Plus trims. The entry-level Premium model now comes standard with power-adjustable front seats, lane-departure warning, and steering-wheel-mounted shift paddles. The Convenience package now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror with an integrated compass, heated power-folding exterior mirrors, and LED interior lighting.

Pros
Sharp styling,
plentiful tech features,
spunky driving demeanor.

Cons
Tight rear quarters,
noticeable turbo lag,
a few cheap interior materials.
