Completely redesigned for 2019.Revised styling.New standard features.BMW's redesigned 2019 X4 is a more sporting and stylish alternative to the traditional luxury crossover. It's related to the X3 SUV but has a sleeker, more coupelike profile. It's also a bit wider, longer and shorter in height than the X3, signaling its mission from the moment you lay eyes on it.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy to personalize thanks to a long list of standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Rear headroom is a bit tight
The sloping roofline compromises cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned

Porsche announced that the 2021 Cayenne Coupe will add a sporty GTS model. It uses a version of the twin-turbo 4.0-liter that powers the mighty Cayenne Turbo, generating 453 horsepower rather than the Turbo's 541. The new model also has dark exterior accents, a lowered suspension, and other performance hardware and premium features.

PROS
Perhaps the prettiest fastback SUV,
drives more like a 911 than a crossover,
diverse powertrain choices.

CONS
Base models have less luxury,
all models have less cargo space than their SUV cousins,
large wheels affect ride quality.

PROS
Impressive handling for a crossover SUV
Wide selection of powerful engines available
Exquisite interior and build quality
Plenty of customization options

CONS
Quite a few optional features should be standard given the price tag
Gloss-black interior panels can look dirty almost immediately
Poor visibility out of the rear
Fans are weak at low speeds and noisy at high speeds

PROS
