Fun Driver
The iX xDrive50 is not the top-performance variant of the iX lineup; an M60 version is coming that will tote more than 600 horsepower. But the xDrive50 certainly doesn’t disappoint. Taking the iX for jaunts on our favorite northwest roads, we discovered it handles more like a BMW and less like an SUV. Steering is precise with excellent response. With plenty of torque available instantly in all situations we always had power when needed. BMW lets the driver choose the level of regen-braking. At the higher levels simply easing off the throttle is enough to slow the vehicle to handle a quick corner, eliminating the need to jump back and forth between throttle and brake pedals.
