Standout styling,
engaging to drive,
spacious back seat and cargo area.

Cons
Base engine is undesirable,
some subpar interior materials,
best options reserved for priciest models.

For 2021, the X5's xDrive50i model has been replaced by the plug-in hybrid xDrive45e.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