Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels. The headlight washing system and full LED headlights with automatic high-beams are no longer standard on the R-Design and Inscription.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup's best features.

Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end

Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places

Underneath their fastback bodies, the X4 M and X4 M Competition are both packing serious muscle. These hot rods are coming to BMW dealerships this fall to take their place among the rest of the brand's performance SUVs, including the new X3 M, which arrives around the same time.

Pros
Balanced power delivery
Impressive grip and balance
Fun on tap in 4WD Sport setting
Transmission refinement

Cons
Punishing ride
Only subtly different next to regular X4
Not as pointed as a full-fledged M4
