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

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

By:

For 2021, the X5's xDrive50i model has been replaced by the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e. The new plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and an electric motor for a total output of 389 horsepower. A 24.0-kWh battery pack is said to provide up to 30 miles of electric-only driving range. The regular 40i models also receive some light electrification in the form of a 48-volt hybrid system.

Pros
Wide range of available engines,
high-quality cabin materials,
intuitive infotainment interface.

Cons
Somewhat vague steering feel,
tight third-row passenger space,
V-8 performance costs a lot extra.

caranddriver.com
