Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 BMW X6 M is about two things: style and performance. It has an abundance of both, but don't expect to get practicality, too.
The 2017 BMW X6 M returns with an updated iDrive system that includes touchscreen functionality. The Executive option package also now includes a Wi-Fi hot spot and wireless charging for compatible cellphones.

Pros
Stellar acceleration from turbocharged V8
Exceptional handling and stability for a heavy SUV
Strong braking performance
Wonderfully contoured seats hold you in place during hard cornering.

Cons
Firm ride even with suspension in its softest setting
Small cargo area
Poor rearward visibility
Limited rear headroom
Sloping rear roofline makes for challenging entry and exit.

Who could have imagined marrying the tall ride height and all-wheel-drive ability of an SUV with the fastback styling of a sleek coupe would produce a desirable vehicle, but that’s exactly what BMW has done with the 2017 X6 SUV. Once an army of one, the X6 has been cloned by such notables as the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. Frankly we’re somewhat puzzled by the X6’s appeal. It isn’t a very off-road-capable vehicle and comes up short in areas designated for cargo and passengers. The 2017 BMW X6’s size precludes it from being as sporty as an Infiniti QX30 or Lexus NF, and yet despite these many drawbacks, the X6 is remarkably fun to drive and seems to have gained a loyal following.

Pros
If you’re looking for a luxury SUV with unique looks, good handling and a lengthy options list, the 2017 BMW X6 SUV might appeal to you. It doesn’t come cheap, but then again what BMW does?

Cons
If you need any part of the “utility” in Sport-Utility Vehicle, the 2017 BMW X6’s tiny cargo area, sharply slanted rear hatch and small rear seat probably won’t impress you. An X5 gives you similar performance as the X6 within a far more usable package.

The biggest demerit to the X6 M comes in its ride quality, which ranges from firm to unacceptably, jarringly firm, depending on how its air suspension is adjusted. On roads that are less than perfect, the head toss gets to be enough that wearing a helmet as protection against the suede headliner seems like a not-terrible idea. And then you’d be ready for the track, which is where the X6 M best acquits itself. Not that we imagine actually spotting any at track days.
With a $103,050 base price, the X6 M’s window sticker is as extravagant as its test sheet. Save the snarky jokes about this being a “German Aztek”—they weren’t all that funny when the first X6 showed up nearly a decade ago. And today, when the automotive world has gone all-in on both horsepower and crossovers, what can we expect but things like the X6 M? This sort of automotive indulgence has never made much sense, but that’s exactly the point.

The 2017 BMW X5 boasts a solid set of powertrains and features that move the sedan toward the top of any list of luxury SUVs.
BMW's charge into every SUV segment hasn't watered down the one that started it all. The 2017 BMW X5 is a benchmark for luxury SUVs and the bar by which many are compared. Its off-road ability is eclipsed only by its on-road manners, and its interior style and comfort make this SUV a must-see for shoppers.

Pros
Bright and stunning interior cabin
Very advanced safety features available
Strong powertrains, top to bottom
Comfortable and quick

Cons
Exterior is languishing, a bit
Very small third row
Price can balloon up to six figures (!) now
Hybrid isn't very fuel efficient either.

The 2017 BMW X5 remains one of the top picks in the very competitive midsize luxury SUV class. Strong performance, a luxurious cabin and an efficient diesel engine option help distinguish it from its accomplished rivals.

Pros
Strong performance from every model
Luxurious and comfortable cabin that lives up to its price tag
Optional diesel engine is as potent as it is efficient
A long list of optional features allows for a wide range of customization.

Cons
Less legroom in the second row compared to some of its competitors
Optional third-row seats are tight even for children.

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2017 BMW X5 ranks 4 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. With plenty of power, loads of cargo room, and a comfy interior, the 2017 BMW X5 should satisfy just about anyone looking for a luxury SUV or a weekend getaway vehicle. Just watch the price tag; the X5 isn’t exactly cheap.

Pros
Range of powerful engines
Lithe handling
Commodious front seats

Cons
Optional third row is small even for kids
