Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Fresh off its 2019 redesign, the X4 carries over into 2020 with minimal changes. The biggest news is that the twin-turbo six-cylinder of the M40i gets a serious boost in power, from 355 to 382. Base models add BMW's Comfort Access system as standard equipment. This system allows you to access the vehicle without removing the key fob from your pocket.

Pros
Snazzy exterior design,
good fuel economy,
entertaining driving dynamics from both trim levels.

Cons
Stingy cargo capacity relative to that of rival crossovers,
slim selection of standard driver-assistance features,
Android Auto is conspicuously absent.

By:

The 2020 BMW X4 offers powerful engine performance, lithe handling, and an upscale cabin with user-friendly features, but it trails the competition in terms of interior space. This luxury compact SUV does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested.

Pros
Enjoyable ride and handling
Potent turbocharged engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Handsome interior

Cons
Snug rear headroom
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

No significant changes for 2020.Part of the second X4 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy personalization thanks to abundant standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Sloping roofline compromises rear headroom and cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned

The BMW X5 M is an amazing mix of very high performance, luxurious accommodation and SUV practicality, but it doesn’t come cheap.

Pros
Fabulous engine
Superb handling
Loads of technology

Cons
Ageing looks
Expensive to buy and run
Not all the safety features are standard

By: 
carwow.co.uk

The all-new 2020 BMW X5 M represents the third generation of the Bavarian automaker's sportiest X5 SUV. It's more powerful than the outgoing X5 M, with 33 horsepower more in standard trim and 50 extra horsepower in the Competition model. The rest of the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary. Still, its resculpted sheetmetal, enhanced interior, and modernized technology help make the latest X5 M better than ever.

Pros
Massive power,
stunning acceleration,
high-end interior appointments.

Cons
Six-figure base price,
stiff ride,
complicated drive-mode system.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2020 BMW X5 M comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.600 horsepower in standard trim and 617 hp with the Competition package.All-wheel-drive system tuned for maximum handling performance.Unique interior and exterior styling touches.

Pros
Massive power from both twin-turbo V8 engines
Rapid acceleration at any speed
Impressive handling for such a big vehicle
Includes modern refinements found in the standard X5

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Small mirrors and thick roof pillars create large blind spots
Not a lot of interior storage
