Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 BMW X6 is the crossover coupe that "nose" how to turn heads.

Pros
Daring shape
Imposing look
Impressive performance
Available V-8 power

Cons
Light-up grille? You sure?
Very expensive
Not practical
The X5 and X7 are very good

If the squareback BMW X5 isn't flashy enough for you, its coupe-like cousin—the X6—will be right up your alley. The 2020 model is all new; its sloping roofline and subtle ducktail rear end adds a shapely option to the lineup that looks sportier and more stylish than the X6 it replaces.The 2020 X6 will be offered with either a 335-hp turbocharged inline-six or a twin-turbocharged V-8 that makes a whopping 523 horsepower. The latter is a big bump versus the 2019 model's 445-hp unit. An all-new X6 M is likely but hasn't been announced yet; we review that model separately and expect an even more monstrous horsepower rating from that high-performance model.

The X6 is all-new for 2020.Receives tech and engines updates from the redesigned X5.Up to half a second quicker than last year's model.Launches the third X6 generation for 2020.

Pros
Strong acceleration from both engines
Comfortable and quiet ride
High-quality interior

Cons
Sloping roofline cuts down on cargo space
Less-than-ideal rear visibility
Limited rear-seat headroom

By: 
edmunds.com

No significant changes for 2021.

Pros
Turbocharged 500-hp V8 moves the SQ8 with authority
Four-wheel steering keeps the big SUV feeling nimble
Surprisingly comfortable given its performance bent
Stylish, distinctive exterior

Cons
Infotainment system can be distracting to use
Driver's seat has few adjustments
Limited interior storage

By:

For its sophomore year, the SQ8 soldiers on with only one change: It now comes standard with a built-in toll-road-payment transmission feature.Upgrading to the Prestige trim costs $5500 but adds a host of driver-assistance and luxury features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, a head-up display with navigation guidance, fancier LED exterior lighting elements, soft-close doors, headlamp washers, heated rear seats, and power rear sunshades. If none of that sounds particularly important to you, save the cash and go with the Premium Plus. All SQ8 models come with the best performance-enhancing features Audi can throw at them, so no matter which one you choose, you're getting the same driving experience.

PROS
Powerful V-8 engine,
high-quality interior trimmings,
aggressive exterior design.

CONS
Some may regret not going with the RS Q8,
braking performance could be better,
thirsty powertrain.

By:

Pros
Sports-car fast
Posh and spacious interior
Plenty of infotainment tech

Cons
Alternatives are more fun to drive
Cheaper Q8 50TDI makes more sense
Petrol-powered alternatives are more dramatic
