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

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 2020 Land Rover Defender is a return to the U.S. for the boxy off-roader that helped start it all. This time with far more creature comforts.

Pros
Back in the USA
Boxy profile
Upgraded interior
Legendary capability
Two body styles

Cons
Turbo-4 for the big Defender 110? Pricey off-roader Odd looks at the rear Interior comfort is a question

Fully redesigned after many decades.Much more comfort and refinement.Lots of customization options.Part of the second Defender generation introduced for 2020.

Pros
Strong off-road capabilities
Numerous customization options
High-tech safety and off-road features

Cons
Not as tough-looking as the original

By:

Land Rover reopens the book on one of its most iconic nameplates with the all-new 2020 Defender. Its boxy shape and retro details combine with design language found on modern Land Rovers to create an appearance that's both sophisticated and nostalgic. While the 2020 Defender looks like an ordinary crossover, it has serious off-road capabilities and rugged equipment that help it live up to its go-anywhere heritage.
