Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021, the X5's xDrive50i model has been replaced by the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e. The new plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and an electric motor for a total output of 389 horsepower. A 24.0-kWh battery pack is said to provide up to 30 miles of electric-only driving range. The regular 40i models also receive some light electrification in the form of a 48-volt hybrid system.

Pros
Wide range of available engines,
high-quality cabin materials,
intuitive infotainment interface.

Cons
Somewhat vague steering feel,
tight third-row passenger space,
V-8 performance costs a lot extra.

The xDrive45e plug-in hybrid model debuts.Last year's xDrive50i is discontinued.Android Auto is now standard.Minor feature changes.

Pros
Strong performance from available engines
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

For 2021, BMW reshuffles the X7 lineup by dropping the 456-hp, V-8-powered xDrive50i—the 523-hp M50i continues—and adding the 612-hp Alpina XB7. The latter is the first SUV that the BMW tuning specialist has offered in the U.S. The xDrive40i's powertrain gets a 48-volt starter-generator which, surprisingly, worsens its EPA fuel-economy figures; both its city and highway ratings drop by 1 mpg.

PROS
Powertrains' deliciously smooth power,
interior as quiet as a library but much comfier,
Alpina XB7 is hilariously quick and athletic.

CONS
Excessive body roll around corners,
cabin and cargo spaces are smaller than expected,
power rear seats are S-L-O-W.

PROS

Balance of comfort and power
Excellent standard features
Large touchscreen
Larger than competition

CONS
Expensive
Small cargo with all seats up
Two trims, essentially
