    CarExpert's Take

    Anthony Crawford
    Senior Road Tester
    Anthony Crawford drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • It's scary fast off the line and keeps on pulling up to 251km/h
    • Sublime comfort amidst its tech-fest interior
    • It's more tired down and confident in the handling department
    Misses
    • It doesn't look a lot different to the iX xDrive50
    • It commands a sizeable premium over its iX xDrive50
    • No iX M planned... yet
