Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

If you thought the 2020 BMW X6's design was bold, you clearly haven't seen it painted in the blackest black exterior color: Vantablack. BMW is gearing up to show the Vantablack X6 at the Frankfurt auto show next month, and we're curious to see what it looks like in person. YouTube user Phoebe Heess beat us to the punch and posted the video below, but we wish it were longer.How is it so, so black? VANTA stands for Vertically Aligned Nano Tube Array, and it's essentially a matrix made from microscopic bits of carbon. Instead of reflecting light the way normal automotive finishes do, it absorbs the light and turns it to heat. We'd suggest BMW not leave the Vantablack X6 parked in the sun too long.

If you’ve ever seen the 2020 BMW X6 wearing the Vantablack VBx2 coating, you know how trippy it getsThe Vantablack VBx2 coating is so black it’s hard to even describe it. But it’s not someone’s figment of the imagination anymore. The 2020 BMW X6 Vantablack is a real thing, and we’re going to see it in the flesh in Frankfurt for the very first time. Like most people, I don’t know what to expect out of it when it shows up. What I do know is I want to see it, as I’m sure most people want to, as well.It’s different because Bimmer partnered with Surrey Nano Systems and creative Levitation 29 to bring this color to life.

The paint colour is so dark, it's said to make the vehicle look two-dimensional, allowing BMW to show off its light-up grille.BMW will use the Frankfurt motor show to unveil a stealthy special-edition X6, finished in a colour called 'Vantablack'.According to the company, the show car is the 'first and only vehicle in the world' to feature the finish, dubbed the 'world's blackest black' by its British creators.
The paint was initially developed to coat space-bound componentry, and can be applied in seriously extreme temperatures.

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.

By:

Pros
Massive power from both twin-turbo V8 engines
Rapid acceleration at any speed
Impressive handling for such a big vehicle
Includes modern refinements found in the standard X5

Cons
Stiff and sometimes unyielding ride
Small mirrors and thick roof pillars create large blind spots
Not a lot of interior storage
