Plenty of interior room
Upscale SUV without a luxury price
Standard automatic emergency braking

Spotty safety data
Bulbous sheet metal
Awkward top trims

Nissan Armada SUV models are available with a 5.6 L-liter gas engine, with output up to 390 hp, depending on engine type. The 2019 Nissan Armada SUV comes with four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 7-speed automatic.

Pros
Attractive, high-quality interior
Smooth V8 engine makes ample power for towing and hauling
Rides more comfortably and less like a truck than some rival SUVs

Cons
Third-row seating isn't as spacious as some rivals
Infotainment system is dated
No getting around the V8's poor fuel economy

The 2019 Nissan Armada ranked #5 in Large SUVs. Currently the Nissan Armada has a score of 7.9 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 26 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Powerful engine
Composed handling

Cons
Outdated infotainment system
Subpar cargo capacity
Low gas mileage ratings

By:

The 2020 BMW X4 offers powerful engine performance, lithe handling, and an upscale cabin with user-friendly features, but it trails the competition in terms of interior space. This luxury compact SUV does not have an overall score or ranking because it hasn’t been fully crash tested.

Pros
Enjoyable ride and handling
Potent turbocharged engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Handsome interior

Cons
Snug rear headroom
Below-average cargo capacity

By: 
usnews.com

Fresh off its 2019 redesign, the X4 carries over into 2020 with minimal changes. The biggest news is that the twin-turbo six-cylinder of the M40i gets a serious boost in power, from 355 to 382. Base models add BMW's Comfort Access system as standard equipment. This system allows you to access the vehicle without removing the key fob from your pocket.

Pros
Snazzy exterior design,
good fuel economy,
entertaining driving dynamics from both trim levels.

Cons
Stingy cargo capacity relative to that of rival crossovers,
slim selection of standard driver-assistance features,
Android Auto is conspicuously absent.

By: 
caranddriver.com

No significant changes for 2020.Part of the second X4 generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Both available engines are smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient
Easy personalization thanks to abundant standard and optional features
Impressive handling for an SUV

Cons
Sloping roofline compromises rear headroom and cargo space
Android Auto is not available
Pricey when fully optioned
