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

While the regular BMW X6 is in its fourth generation, the high-performance 2020 X6 M has just embarked on its third. It's hard to tell the difference between the all-new model and the one it replaces, but upon closer inspection there are noteworthy improvements. The 2020 iteration is more powerful for one, adding between 33 and 50 horsepower. Its bodywork received a subtle but sharper-looking makeover, and its cabin has been overhauled with a modernized aesthetic and better technology.

Pros
Astonishing performance,
unapologetically brutal design,
long list of standard features.

Cons
Hugely impractical,
limited rear visibility,
thirsty for fuel.

By:

The 2020 BMW X6 M comes with all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.600 horsepower in standard trim or 617 hp with the Competition package.All-wheel-drive system maximized for handling performance.Adaptive suspension with active roll stabilization.

Pros
Massive power from both available engines
Startling acceleration at any speed
Impressive handling performance
High-quality interior packed with features

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Distinctive styling limits rear headroom and cargo capacity

The BMW X5 M is an amazing mix of very high performance, luxurious accommodation and SUV practicality, but it doesn’t come cheap.

Pros
Fabulous engine
Superb handling
Loads of technology

Cons
Ageing looks
Expensive to buy and run
Not all the safety features are standard

By:

The all-new 2020 BMW X5 M represents the third generation of the Bavarian automaker's sportiest X5 SUV. It's more powerful than the outgoing X5 M, with 33 horsepower more in standard trim and 50 extra horsepower in the Competition model. The rest of the changes are more evolutionary than revolutionary. Still, its resculpted sheetmetal, enhanced interior, and modernized technology help make the latest X5 M better than ever.

Pros
Massive power,
stunning acceleration,
high-end interior appointments.

Cons
Six-figure base price,
stiff ride,
complicated drive-mode system.
