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

By:

The 2021 Escalade has undergone a thorough redesign, complete with a new independent rear suspension, savvier interior technology, prettier styling, and a new optional diesel-powered engine.To truly deck out the Escalade in its best features, go for the Platinum trim. It adds semi-aniline leather, 16-way power-adjustable front seats with massage, soft-close doors, and an AKG audio system with 36 speakers. The Platinum version also comes standard with a self-parking feature, a head-up display, and adaptive cruise control. We'll know more about pricing and optional features closer to the 2021 Escalade's on-sale date, which is expected to be this summer.

The 2021 Cadillac Escalade is much more than a Chevrolet Tahoe in a tuxedo.

Pros
Gorgeous interior
Super Cruise
Independent suspension
Lots of torque regardless of engine
An adult-sized third row

Cons
Gets expensive
It’s massive
The rear end barely changed
Where’s the hybrid?

By:
