Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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

For 2021, BMW gives the X5 M some new standard features and removes several standalone options. Android Auto is now finally offered. It's standard along with a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. The previously optional roof rails and exterior trim in satin aluminum, night vision with pedestrian detection, and the rear-seat entertainment system have been eliminated. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Jaw-dropping acceleration,
shockingly athletic for its size,
upscale cabin environment.

Cons
Ride will be too stiff for some,
cost will be too pricey for most,
don't even think of taking it off-road.

2021 Now available with Android Auto smartphone integration.Minor changes to feature availability and option packages.

Pros
Massive power from the twin-turbo V8
Impressive handling and braking for such a big vehicle
Includes tech and other features from 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

The 2019 Audi RS 3 comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automated manual.Minor adjustments to package features.Fixed sport suspension now available as stand-alone option.

Pros
Potent acceleration and heaps of traction
Well-trimmed cabin
Enough practicality to serve everyday use
Attractive, easy-to-use infotainment system

Cons
Snug back seat and small cargo area
Ride quality might be too firm for casual drivers
Front seats sit too high for tall occupants
Some driver assistance systems, such as adaptive cruise, are optional

By:

Overall, an excellent car, even considering the high price given the size. It has a well-rounded set of features, and when performance is taken into account, some would even argue that it is good value for money. Definitely well worth a drive!

pros
Excellent power and performance;
Five-cylinder exhaust sound is unique;
Interior fit and finish typical high Audi quality;
Chuckability around tight roads;
Sharp looks both inside and out

Cons
Turbo lag (which may be a pro for some!);
Transmission logic in Comfort mode;
Software bugs in engine and transmission control units;
Lack of electric seat adjustability;
No puddle lights

By:

Pros
Awesome turbo five-cylinder,
planted yet playful chassis,
lovely cabin.

Cons
More engine noise please,
big price for a small car,
cramped back seat.
