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 Armada gets a significant makeover for 2021, starting with a squarer front end featuring prominent headlights. The design revisions reach out back, too, with a new bumper and taillights that are connected by a continuous trim piece. There's also a newly available Midnight Edition with blacked-out trim. Inside, Nissan redesigned the center stack and added a larger 12.3-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay.

PROS
Serenely quiet and comfy,
smooth,
potent powertrain,
pillowy ride.

CONS
Dreadful fuel economy,
some dated interior elements,
wanders at highway speeds.

By:

The 2021 Nissan Armada is a big, comfortable brute that can tow the boat and haul the family all at once.

PROS
Spacious inside
Lusty V-8
Strong for towing
Good safety features
Value at the base level

CONS
Gas guzzler
Third row for kids only
Gets expensive
Plodding moves
