Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

BMW's Active Driving Assistant is standard.Apple CarPlay is standard but on a subscription basis.Is the 2019 BMW X6 M a gigantic sports car or an ultra-sporty luxury SUV? The answer is "both" but also "neither." It's an automotive curio that exists outside typical car and SUV segments and defies traditional car-buying advice. But for those who do "get it," the X6 M won't disappoint.

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 and passengers
Power delivery can feel overcaffeinated in regular driving

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:

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

The 2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe is the sporty counterpart to the more upright and traditional looking Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV. Note the nomenclature difference: Not only is the GLE Coupe, well, a "coupe," it also bears the AMG label in its name. This is because this year, the GLE Coupe is available only in two different AMG forms: the turbocharged-V6-powered Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe, and the turbo-V8-powered Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe. The GLE Coupe goes against the likes of the BMW X6 by offering a sleeker body and better driving dynamics than the SUV upon which it's based. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is the sporty counterpart to the standard GLE SUV. Don't expect much utility from this SUV though, as the GLE Coupe puts a priority on design.

Pros
The Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe offers some of the characteristics of an SUV -- all-wheel drive, improved cargo capacity, and a taller ride height -- with the design and performance of a luxury sport sedan. If that sounds like you, take a look.

Cons
The GLE Coupe isn't cheap, with a starting price higher than the GLE SUV. In addition, like the GLE, it's based on an older platform that's considerably heavier than newer Mercedes-Benz products. If you want something similar, but more modern, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a little smaller, but far more nimble.

The GLE Coupe is Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X6 – it’s a sporty 4×4 SUV coupe. Underneath the GLE Coupe’s sexier curves you’ll find the same mechanical bits as on the more traditional looking GLE.The GLE Coupe is a more stylish version of the GLE that still has plenty of passenger space.
The GLE Coupe is a good all-rounder for buyers who want a large 4×4 but with a more exciting shape than the usual box-like offerings. It has a big boot, a range of powerful engines and a lovely interior.

Pros
Quick
Classy interior
Big boot

Cons
Expensive to run
High boot lip
Only one diesel option
