This year, the big change to the X5 lineup can be summed up in three words: even more performance. BMW has added a fourth member to the stable, the M50i, which pummels the asphalt with 523 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from its turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8—up 67 horsepower and 74 lb-ft from the xDrive50i's similar 4.4-liter V-8. The M50i package includes a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, an electronic limited-slip rear differential, an M Sport exhaust, bigger brakes, and sportier suspension tuning with adaptive dampers.

Pros
Inspiring engines,
top-notch build quality,
easy-to-use infotainment system.

Cons
Steering feel is in short supply,
third row is for small fry only,
no Android Auto capability.

The 2021 E-Tron SUV and Sportback offer all the comfort, luxury, and features of Audi’s other premium models, with a fully electric twist.

PROS
Well-proportioned exteriors
Quiet, luxurious cabin
Straightforward, quick charging
Family-size interior space and versatility

CONS
Overly complex touchscreen layout
Climate controls low in line of sight
Range doesn’t measure up to Tesla

By:

For 2021, Audi introduces a more affordable base model that features the Premium designation. Available on both the regular and Sportback e-tron, it costs about $9000 less than the mid-level Premium Plus. It can also be equipped with the Convenience Plus package, which includes driver assists such as adaptive cruise control.

PROS
Whisper-quiet operation,
luxurious state-of-the-art cabin,
tows up to 4000 pounds.

CONS
Other luxury EVs have more range,
not very engaging behind the wheel,
none of the flashiness exhibited by rivals.
