Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Here’s the BMW iX - BMW’s first purpose-built, all-electric SUV!

So does the iX stand a chance against class leaders like the Tesla Model X or Audi e-tron? Well, it’s time to find out!

Starting with the exterior design, there’s no denying that it’s certainly striking! Sure, it doesn’t need the massive ‘grille’ upfront, but if anything it clearly helps it to stand out on the road. What’s more, the high-quality of the outside continues through to the inside, where you’ll find a minimalist design coupled with a load of tech.

The performance isn’t all that bad either! When it comes to the range-topping xDrive50 edition, it comes equipped with a 100kWh battery which is good for a claimed range of 373 miles. It also produces 500hp, and can hit 60mph in under five seconds!

So the question is - is it really worth the £95,000 starting price for the range-topping iX50? And should you consider it over a Model X? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

going to have to disagree with you, the little wooden centre console with "crystal" controls is not as nice as the carbon fibre variant to me, its probably one of the most modern cars there is, yet they are trying to look like a morgan, now if mogan made an e-car, then yeah a bit of wood in the dash/console area would look great but not on this to me.

the Germans climbed to the heights of their awesomeness and created a log that looks like a fake. This car looks dramatically bad. the badge on the hood had fallen off, on the back a broken cup holder. High price and looks like a cheap prototype. The world is turning backwards and this is the perfect example

The voice, the casual wear and the obsession with ‘soft eject’ cup holders tells me this IS Partridge if he got his second show and enjoyed a life of professional privilege bouncing gleefully between car reviews, judging ‘Best in Show’ marrows at Holkham Harvest Festival and of course beauty contests for the over 50s.

The levers that lower that back seat are way too cheap. The whole panel almost popped out. Cheaper SUVs have power folding and lifting rear seats. You can option this to 90k plus! Come on BMW!

I think it's a mistake to stick with styling cues that were once essential and now pointless. The grill and fake exhaust ports being examples. This car needs neither, but the ID guys at BMW just can't move on with their thinking. I'm sure they'll get over it someday. No Frunk!! It seems rushed, very rushed.

As clever as this thing is, it’s such a shame that this is the future of driving. BMW’s used to be drivers cars, now it looks like they are making cars for loaded people to make money. I mean it’s incredible, but it’s an IPad. It’s soulless. The fact that it has no buttons inside would wind me up. What’s wrong with having knobs for climate control etc! And it’s f#^king ugly! Really ugly. It will be a sad day when these things take over. Still great vid as ever

So, with an Austin Allegro steering wheel, a bit of manky plywood for the switches and seat adjustment buttons that look like half sucked wine gums - plus front styling that looks like a massive gopher - I think my BMW buying days are behind me, especially at nearly 100k. Hideous!!

I have one clear label to put on the IX: BEAUTIFUL! I seriously find the exterior and the interior design really nice and outstanding! The front is aggressive and really stand out of the crowd in a positive way. I liked both the exterior and the interior design right from the first time I saw the pictures. Then I noticed all these comments about how ugly this car was supposed to be and asked myself if I had got a wrong impression. But the more I looked at the pictures, the more I loved the design, both the exterior and the interior. I have not heard any negative comment when I talk directly to people. They all say: "oh, that car is gorgeous!". Many comments on the web are about the grill, that it is big and ugly. I totally disagree. If I should put the tag "ugly" on a grill, I rather put that tag on the Audi e-tron, Audi Q4 e-tron and Lexus grills. The BMW IX design is very different from earlier BMW cars, but hallo: we talk year 2021! Things change. Cars shall look different from what they did years ago. When I bought my BMW i3 in 2016, I looked at several electric cars - among those Leaf and e-Golf. Leaf had a design I could't swallow, and e-Golf looked like a normal Golf. When I was looking for an electric car in 2016, I wanted something fresh, new, modern. i3 was exactly that. The interior design was completely different from all other cars, and I found it really nice. Today when I am going to replace my BMW X3 with an electric car, I am again loking for something modern, high-tech, stylish as of year 2021. BMW IX xDrive 50 is exactly that! I have checked all electric cars on the market, test driven quite a few, read tests and reviews. I had an open mind to any brand of car. I didn't find anything matching IX. There are so many important features when choosing my next car: noise level, level 2/3 assistant driving, efficiency, AWD, range, head-up-display, navigation, displays and input control, ground clearance, performance, comfort, driving pleasure, high-tech, roof load, towing weight, exterior design, interior design, ... BMW IX50 is top notch on everything, meeting all my expectations 100%. It is a fantastic, beautiful car and it will be my next car. One thing is to judge something from pictures, seeing it in real life is often quite different. I have noticed that many journalists are reporting that they find the car even nicer when they see it in person than the first impression from pictures. So maybe people writing all these negative comments should be a bit more open minded until they have actually seen it in person.

14:20 Did you notice how Mat had to look down at the touch switch on the centre console then up at the screen to change driving mode. It took him 4 glances down at the center console then a few seconds swiping away at the touch screen, yet it's illegal to touch your phone while driving!!!. Is this BMW's idea of safety?

This thing is hideous. I am sorry. I am getting my XB7 next month. Then, God willing, an M4 CSL and maybe an M3 CS (if it will be offered with a Manual) but if this is the design language for the next generation of BMWs, I won’t be buying any new ones any time soon.

Respect to BMW they lead the way with design. Initial impressions is almost always ‘yuck that’s hideous’ but they grow on me in time. Much better than being dull like so many manufacturers.

I know styling is very personal, so here's my very personal view - absolutely bloody hideous. Possibly one the ugliest cars I ever seen - I cant honestly find anything positive to say about the exterior except the back isn't quite the horror show the front is. Looks like instead of being poked by the stick of truth, its taken a severe beating from the ugly stick. I do like the interior though. Fortunately for BMW, I can't afford it so a) the won't care what I think and b) they haven't lost a sale. Off to watch some videos of puppies and try and unsee this monstrosity.
