Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pros
Handles very well for its size
Impressively comfortable too
Loads of infotainment tech

Cons
Muted engine sounds
Auto gearbox isn't the best
Lots of expensive optional extras

By:

Audi has made no changes to the RS Q8 for 2021.

Pros
Mega-powerful V-8 engine,
nimble chassis,
styling is more restrained than the mechanically similar Lambo Urus.

Cons
Slower and more expensive than the RS6 Avant,
brake feel isn't particularly confidence inspiring,
not quite as poised as a Porsche.

The RS Q8 is unchanged for 2021.

Pros
Turbo V8 delivers devastating straight-line performance
Nimble, lively handling puts most sports cars to shame
Comfortable, well-trimmed interior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Limited interior storage
Less practical than the related Q7

The 2019 BMW X6 pioneered the sloped-roof SUV segment and maintains high quality and performance, but it’s showing its age.

Pros
Head-turning looks
Strong powertrains
Interior build quality
Luxurious options

Cons
Tight rear seat
Measly cargo space
Too expensive
Not as fun as it could be

By: 
thecarconnection.com

For 2019, the X6 receives several new standard features and revised option packages. Every model now features standard Apple CarPlay and these driver assists: automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, pedestrian detection, and speed-limit information. The six-cylinder versions can now be had with the Convenience package, which adds four-zone automatic climate control, a one-year SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, and passive entry. Likewise, this package is now included with the M Sport package on six-cylinder models. The Premium package is updated to include self-parking assist, a head-up display, wireless charging, and a Wi-Fi hotspot; the Executive package adds soft-close doors, rear manually operated side window shades, adaptive headlights that turn with the steering wheel, and automatic high-beams.

Pros
Spectacular powertrains,
fantastic infotainment system,
well-to-do interior.

Cons
styling,
compromised practicality,
cost of options adds up fast.

By: 
caranddriver.com

More advanced driver safety aids are now standard.Apple CarPlay is now standard (subscription-based).The 2019 BMW X6 may be called a "coupe" by its makers' marketing wizards, but it's really a five-passenger midsize SUV with the boxy bit at the back chopped off.

PROS
Engines provide strong acceleration
Comfortable and quiet ride
Quality interior with comfortable front seats

CONS
Sloping roofline cuts down cargo space
Hard to see out the back
Limited rear headroom
