Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The BMW X6 has powerful engines and a luxurious, high-tech cabin. You’ll forgo some space and practicality versus a BMW X5 though, and spend more doing it.

Pros
SUVs don’t come much quicker
Fantastic infotainment system
Impressive interior quality

Cons
X5 equivalent has better rear headroom
Audi RS Q8 is easier on the eyes
Smaller boot than every alternative

The X6 M enters the 2021 model year with only the smallest of changes. The list of standard features grows with the addition of Android Auto and a one-year subscription to SiriusXM satellite radio with 360L. However, the M's roster of standalone options has been shortened with the elimination of night vision with pedestrian detection, the rear-seat entertainment system, and the satin aluminum roof rails and exterior trim. BMW also changes the Competition designation from a model to a package.

Pros
Transcendent SUV performance,
stocked with popular standard features,
sumptuous cabin space.

Cons
Compromised rear visibility,
rough ride on some roads,
pricier than the more practical X5 M.
