Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.

The BMW X5 M is an amazing mix of very high performance, luxurious accommodation and SUV practicality, but it doesn’t come cheap.

Pros
Fabulous engine
Superb handling
Loads of technology

Cons
Ageing looks
Expensive to buy and run
Not all the safety features are standard

By: 
carwow.co.uk

For 2021, BMW gives the X5 M some new standard features and removes several standalone options. Android Auto is now finally offered. It's standard along with a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. The previously optional roof rails and exterior trim in satin aluminum, night vision with pedestrian detection, and the rear-seat entertainment system have been eliminated. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Jaw-dropping acceleration,
shockingly athletic for its size,
upscale cabin environment.

Cons
Ride will be too stiff for some,
cost will be too pricey for most,
don't even think of taking it off-road.

By:

2021 Now available with Android Auto smartphone integration.Minor changes to feature availability and option packages.

Pros
Massive power from the twin-turbo V8
Impressive handling and braking for such a big vehicle
Includes tech and other features from the standard X5

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Small mirrors and thick roof pillars create large blind spots
Not a lot of interior storage
