The BMW iX is the brand’s first all-electric SUV

In addition to the panache of the BMW badges, the iX offers over 300 miles of range and all of the luxuries you may expect.

In addition to cars like the Audi e-Tron and the Rivian R1S, one of its main rivals is the Tesla Model X.

If you’re in the market for either of these EVs, then here are a few reasons why the BMW iX could be a better choice.

Let’s face it, upon first glance, the BMW iX looks a bit odd. Some may like the massive front grille, others may not

But no matter which way you slice it, you have to admit that it looks aggressive and futuristic

The iX’s bold body lines and contours make it look like a concept car come to life.

In fact, it’s even based on the Vision iNext concept that appeared back in 2018.

On the other hand, the Tesla Model X looks bland in comparison

Sure, it looks futuristic, but it’s actually looking a little long in the tooth. It doesn’t help that it also looks a bit cookie-cutter like other Teslas in the model line.

Compared to the Tesla Model X, the BMW iX handles the road better thanks to a couple of tricks up its sleeve

One trick is its adjustable air suspension, which helps it soak up bumps and hold the road well.

The second trick is via its optional rear-wheel steering, which helps in low-speed and parking lot situations

 The Model X may handle decently, but the iX handles better. According to Edmunds, “it offers a more refined and luxurious driving experience than the Tesla Model X and sportier performance than the Audi e-Tron.”
