Infiniti expands the 2020 QX50 lineup with two new trim levels and newly standard equipment. The Sensory and Autograph models now top the QX50 pyramid with the most desirable features. Every version now has driver assists that include automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning, rear automated emergency braking, and rear cross-traffic alert. The QX50's infotainment system adds the latest software along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. Likewise, the lineup gains some fresh and reshuffled option packages.

Pros
One-of-a-kind engine, indulgent interior, generous cargo space.

Cons
Disappointing fuel efficiency, engine can be noisy, top models get top content.

BMW has made very few changes to the X1 for 2021: SiriusXM satellite radio is now standard, and LED fog lamps are no longer part of the optional Convenience or Premium packages. Also, BMW won't let customers order the sports seats as a standalone option anymore. You have to select the M Sport pack if you want them.

Pros
Peppy turbo four,
crisp handling,
practical interior.

Cons
Unsupportive standard front seats,
aging infotainment interface,
bland styling.

Good transmission
Comfy front seats
Reasonably large cargo area

Cons
Stodgy vs. expressive rivals
Rear-seat leg room
Infotainment’s clunky controller
Chintzy interior bits
Can get expensive
