Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The Audi SQ5 is redesigned for 2018. Highlights include a new body structure, updated styling, a more powerful V6 engine, and new tech and driver-assistance features.The 2018 Audi SQ5 comes in either Premium Plus or Prestige trims. This means every SQ5 comes very well-equipped. But there are still plenty of upgrades to be had in terms of luxury, technology and performance.

PROS
All-new chassis should improve ride and handling
Increased torque for even livelier performance
Major upgrades to driving and infotainment technology
Luxurious but restrained interior design

CONS
Reduced cargo space behind rear seats

By:

The SQ5 strikes a careful balance between sporty and comfortable, making a strong showing in a tough class.The SQ5 enters a new generation this year, with top-to-bottom changes that include an all-new 354-hp turbocharged V-6 engine in place of last year’s supercharged V-6, an all-new chassis, standard adaptive dampers, and available air springs. Updated interior packaging means there’s a little more space for both passengers and cargo than in previous SQ5s, and exterior design tweaks including a revised front grille and a character line running the length of the car serve as differentiators between new and not-so-new models.

Pros
Comfortable ride,
surprisingly fuel efficient,
abundance of standard interior features.

Cons
Disappointing real-world cargo capacity,
ho-hum exterior design,
top competitors have better dynamics.

By:

Pros
Comfortable, adjustable backseat
Visibility
Power liftgate standard
Aggressive engine note
Responsive transmission

Cons
Multimedia functionality
Control ergonomics
Price premium over Q5
Mild styling for a sport model
Requires premium fuel

The BMW X6 M is available in only one feature-loaded trim, so there's not much to recommend. This is a BMW, however, so there are several other option boxes you can check, and the most appealing might be the Executive package. Highlights include cooled front seats, heated rear seats, wireless smartphone charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a host of driver safety aids (including blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, surround-view cameras). It's a pricey package, but it's packed with details that will make the X6 M that much more enjoyable.

PROS
Performance is astonishing for an SUV
High-quality interior packed with features
Seats are comfortable and supportive

CONS
Distinctive exterior design limits rear-seat room and cargo space
Sporty suspension may feel too firm for some drivers, passengers
Gas pedal sometimes responds slowly in low-speed driving

By: 
edmunds.com

The X6 M is a style item: it has sleek lines, a plush interior, and a coveted badge on the hood. It’s also stunningly quick and handles more like a sports car than anything that weighs 5000 pounds has any right to. It’s powered by a 567-hp twin-turbo V-8. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard, and up to 100 percent of torque can be routed to either the front or rear wheels, depending on driving conditions. It’s less practical than the boxy X5 M, but it’ll turn more heads.

Pros
Blistering performance,
commanding seating position.

Cons
Harsh ride,
constricted cargo space.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The BMW X6 M is a large SUV with a coupe body that offers sports car handling with all the practicality of a big 4×4.Driving is where the X6 M not only impresses but even amazes – there is endless grip and you rarely feel the 2.3-tonne weight of the car.

Pros
Astonishingly fast
High-quality interior
Great engine

Cons
Little bit of road noise
A tad firm
Not cheap
