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.

The 2019 Volvo XC90 is a standout effort from the Swedish brand, offering style, luxury, and practicality in a way many other luxury SUVs don’t.

Pros
Svelte Swedish looks
Less-is-more interior
Tablet-like infotainment
Wide variety of models and trims
Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end
Base powertrain lacks oomph
Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places

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:

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
