Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the Mazda CX-9 delivers a handful of small but useful changes. Standard on all models is Mazda's G-Vectoring Control, a new electronic system that the company says improves steering and stability in turns. All trims offer new standard safety features and driver aids, ranging from blind-spot monitoring on Sport trims to front parking sensors on upper trims.

PROS
With sharp, modern style inside and out, the CX-9 feels richer than its cost
Sporty handling makes it fun to drive
Comfortable interior remains quiet on the highway
Top-level Signature trim is on par with some luxury-brand competitors

CONS
Third-row seats aren't especially accommodating
Cargo capacity isn't as generous as in competitors

Flexible interior
Better advanced safety features
Good infotainment screen..

The 2017 BMW X5 M returns with an updated iDrive system that includes touchscreen functionality. The Executive option package also now includes a Wi-Fi hot spot and wireless charging for compatible cellphones.

Pros
Astounding acceleration
Comprehensively equipped
Upscale interior with excellent fit and finish.

Cons
Touchy gas pedal
Ride may be too firm for some tastes
No third-row seat offered
IDrive still requires too many clicks to accomplish everyday tasks.

Although the 2017 BMW X5 gets called a "sports-activity vehicle" or SAV by its maker, we know a luxury SUV when we see one. Going head to head against the Porsche Cayenne and Mercedes-Benz GLE, the 2017 X5 emphasizes the "sport" part of sport-utility vehicle. The resulting lineup of luxury SUV models includes a hybrid, a diesel, and even a fire-breathing M version, all of which are fun to drive. The X5 is big, but still midsize, so it's easy to manage through traffic and parking lots, while remaining roomy and comfortable at the same time. Note that the "utility" part doesn't extend as far off-road as you can go in a Land Rover or even a Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Pros
If you want a luxury-sports sedan, but need the room of an SUV, then the BMW X5 should definitely be on your short list. With its wide range of powertrain options and excellent handling, there's an X5 for just about anyone willing to spend $50,000 or more.

Cons
The X5's charms don't come cheap, and if you want a more luxurious ride -- that is, softer -- you might be better suited with a Lexus RX 350, Acura MDX or Audi Q7. If you need more room, check out the larger Mercedes-Benz GL or Infiniti QX80.

The BMW X5 M is now the undisputed king of high-performance SUVs – quicker than similar rivals such as the Porsche Cayenne Turbo, Range Rover Sport SVR and Mercedes GLE63.
The X5 M is a combination of sports car performance and luxury SUV practicality and capability. That may sound like a great recipe at first, but it’s never going to drive like a proper sports car.
The exterior styling of the X5 M isn’t in any way devastatingly attractive, although its brutal design is a match for its performance. If you absolutely have to have the fastest and most powerful luxury SUV, then the X5 M is a worthy alternative to the pricier Bentley Bentayga.

Pros
Fabulous engine
Superb handling
Tons of technology

Cons
Ageing styling
Small rear seats
Can get pricy with
