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.

Updated styling for 2020.New infotainment system with two screens.New V6 engine with more power than last year.

Pros
Exceptional interior materials and build quality
Excellent ride quality regardless of road surface
Plenty of safety and infotainment technology features
Surprisingly agile handling

Cons
Offers less cargo space than most competitors
Cramped third-row seat
New infotainment system is distracting to use

By: 
edmunds.com

The Q7 receives an extensive facelift for 2020, including updated exterior styling, more technology features on the inside, and a new turbocharged V-6 engine is now optional and is identified by the "55" badge; a turbo four-cylinder remains the base engine, and Q7s powered by this powertrain wear "45" badges. The 2020 Q7 also adopts the two-row Q8 SUV's touchscreen-heavy interior, featuring a large infotainment display stacked on top of another secondary display that handles vehicle settings and climate control.

Pros
Back-road athleticism, beautiful and high-tech cabin, three-row versatility.

Cons
Pricey with extras, snug third row, subtle styling gets lost in parking lots.
