The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is a big family mover with a sharper look and better safety features.

PROS
Sharp looks

Spacious interior
Wireless smartphone software

CONS

Chevrolet has given its three-row Traverse a light refresh for the 2021 model year that includes revised exterior styling and a host of new standard driver-assistance features. Among them are automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlamps. An 8.0-inch display inside the gauge cluster is now an available tech option, and new upholstery designs dress up the interior.

PROS
Spacious cabin,
peppy acceleration,
fuel efficient powertrain.

CONS
Big blind spots toward the rear,
plasticky interior parts,
most appealing options cost extra.

By:

The 2021 Traverse has no significant changes. Part of the second Traverse generation introduced for 2018.

PROS
Passenger room is generous in all three rows
Loads of space for any combination of passengers and cargo
Feature-rich infotainment system comes with standard Wi-Fi hotspot

CONS
Some safety features are only available on top trims
Quality of some interior panels and controls seems low-rent for this class

The 2021 BMW X6 trades some of the X5’s utility for a fashion moment, but doesn’t miss a performance beat.

Pros
Distinct shape
Better look
Impressive performance
Available twin-turbo V-8 power

Cons
Cramped rear head room
Expensive
Not as practical as an X5
Big rear blind spots

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2021 X6 lineup adds some new standard features, drops some old ones, and gets revised option packages. The most notable new addition is Android Auto, which was previously not available and now comes standard. However, BMW eliminates previous options such as the acoustic glass, glass interior controls, rear-entertainment system, and night vision with pedestrian detection. The six-cylinder X6 now features a 48-volt hybrid system, and the V-8-powered version adds standard remote start and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Smooth and speedy powertrains,
athletic handling and refined ride quality, f
ulfills luxury mission.

Cons
Unintuitive infotainment interface,
X5 has a bigger cargo area,
V-8 upgrade requires a significant investment.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Minor changes to feature availability and option packages for 2021.

Pros
Strong acceleration from both engines
Comfortable and quiet ride
High-quality interior

Cons
Sloping roofline cuts down on cargo space
Rear visibility is less than ideal
Limited rear headroom
