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.

Volvo makes a number of minor changes to the 2021 XC90 lineup. Every model now comes standard with front parking sensors, LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel, high-pressure headlight washers, wireless charging, two USB-C ports on the back of the center console, and the company's Care Key, which allows an owner to set limitations on the vehicle's top speed. The plug-in-hybrid T8 is now branded with the Recharge moniker..

Pros
Stunning styling inside and out,
impressive list of features,
quick plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Coarse-sounding gas engines,
harsh ride on rough roads,
plug-in hybrid isn't as efficient as rivals.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Low-key luxury lies in the 2021 Volvo XC90’s serene cockpit, in its strong acceleration, and in its gray-wool confines.

Pros
Proudly Scandinavian, inside and out
Simple and sophisticated interior
Tablet-like touchscreen
Lots of models and trims
Great safety record and standard active tech

Cons
Base powertrain lacks potency
Some flimsy materials in the cabin
Not a performance SUV
