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

By:

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:

For 2021, BMW reshuffles the X7 lineup by dropping the 456-hp, V-8-powered xDrive50i—the 523-hp M50i continues—and adding the 612-hp Alpina XB7. The latter is the first SUV that the BMW tuning specialist has offered in the U.S. The xDrive40i's powertrain gets a 48-volt starter-generator which, surprisingly, worsens its EPA fuel-economy figures; both its city and highway ratings drop by 1 mpg.

PROS
Powertrains' deliciously smooth power,
interior as quiet as a library but much comfier,
Alpina XB7 is hilariously quick and athletic.

CONS
Excessive body roll around corners,
cabin and cargo spaces are smaller than expected,
power rear seats are S-L-O-W.

By:

The 2021 BMW X7 doesn’t compromise roominess, comfort, performance, or price.

PROS
Standard heated armrests, seats, steering wheel
Balance of comfort and power
Excellent standard features
Large touchscreen
Larger than competition

CONS
Expensive
Small cargo with all seats up
Two trims, essentially

PROS

CONS
