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For 2021, the X5's xDrive50i model has been replaced by the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e.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.

One of the most complete electric cars money can buy. Superb build quality, and decent to drive.

Pros
Beautifully built intuitive cabin,
effortless performance,
exceptionally cool image,

Pros

The Polestar 2 is an excellent luxury electric vehicle, even if it's not as visually exciting as trendier alternatives.

Pros
Notable athleticism and quickness,
cabin materials and quality are indeed luxurious,
surprisingly intuitive infotainment system.

Cons
Exterior design isn't exactly daring,
race-inspired dampers require manual adjustments,
estimated driving range is underwhelming.
