The 2020 BMW X5 comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.New turbo V8-powered M50i model joins the lineup.Keyless entry now standard on 40i base trim.Debut of plug-in hybrid xDrive45e expected in early or mid-2020.

Pros
Strong performance from both models
Luxurious, comfortable cabin lives up to its price tag
Spacious cabin and cargo area

Cons
Small mirrors and wide roof pillars create blind spots
Limited interior storage
Wide doorsills inhibit entry and exit

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 BMW X6 has powerful engines and a luxurious, high-tech cabin. You’ll forgo some space and practicality versus a BMW X5 though, and spend more doing it.

Pros
SUVs don’t come much quicker
Fantastic infotainment system
Impressive interior quality

Cons
X5 equivalent has better rear headroom
Audi RS Q8 is easier on the eyes
Smaller boot than every alternative

By:

The X6 M enters the 2021 model year with only the smallest of changes. The list of standard features grows with the addition of Android Auto and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. However, the M's roster of standalone options has been shortened with the elimination of night vision with pedestrian detection, the rear-seat entertainment system, and the satin aluminum roof rails and exterior trim. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Transcendent SUV performance,
stocked with popular standard features,
sumptuous cabin space.

Cons
Compromised rear visibility,
rough ride on some roads,
pricier than the more practical X5 M.

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

Pros
Massive power from its turbocharged V8
Impressive handling performance
High-quality interior packed with features

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Distinctive styling limits rear headroom and cargo capacity
Compromised rear visibility
