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

Pros
Elegant interior and exterior styling
Precise handling that inspires confidence
Spacious second- and third-row seating for a midsize SUV
Many standard safety technology features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Overly busy ride quality for a vehicle in its class

Some touchscreen controls can be hard to use

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.

By:
