Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 BMW X6 pioneered the sloped-roof SUV segment and maintains high quality and performance, but it’s showing its age.

Pros
Head-turning looks
Strong powertrains
Interior build quality
Luxurious options

Cons
Tight rear seat
Measly cargo space
Too expensive
Not as fun as it could be

By:

For 2019, the X6 receives several new standard features and revised option packages. Every model now features standard Apple CarPlay and these driver assists: automated emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning, pedestrian detection, and speed-limit information. The six-cylinder versions can now be had with the Convenience package, which adds four-zone automatic climate control, a one-year SiriusXM satellite radio subscription, and passive entry. Likewise, this package is now included with the M Sport package on six-cylinder models. The Premium package is updated to include self-parking assist, a head-up display, wireless charging, and a Wi-Fi hotspot; the Executive package adds soft-close doors, rear manually operated side window shades, adaptive headlights that turn with the steering wheel, and automatic high-beams.

Pros
Spectacular powertrains,
fantastic infotainment system,
well-to-do interior.

Cons
styling,
compromised practicality,
cost of options adds up fast.

More advanced driver safety aids are now standard.Apple CarPlay is now standard (subscription-based).The 2019 BMW X6 may be called a "coupe" by its makers' marketing wizards, but it's really a five-passenger midsize SUV with the boxy bit at the back chopped off.

PROS
Engines provide strong acceleration
Comfortable and quiet ride
Quality interior with comfortable front seats

CONS
Sloping roofline cuts down cargo space
Hard to see out the back
Limited rear headroom

Porsche spices up the 2021 Cayenne lineup with the return of the GTS model. While the company hasn't announced changes for the rest of the lineup, we now know that the GTS will have a 460-hp twin-turbo V-8. Along with more desirable standard features, it'll also benefit from a lowered suspension and other performance hardware. The 2021 GTS is the top-of-the-line version of the regular Cayenne, but it's just as much a gateway to the high-powered Turbo variants (reviewed separately).

Pros
Sensational powertrains,
sports-car DNA,
can tow 7700 pounds.

Cons
Ride can be stiff,
limited cubby storage,
custom options can add up.

By:

The GTS returns, powered by a 453-horsepower turbocharged V8.

Pros
Truly impressive handling for a crossover SUV
Wide selection of powerful engines
Exquisite interior and build quality
Plenty of customization options

Cons
Quite a few features that should be standard at this price are optional
Gloss-black interior panels can quickly look dirty
Poor rear visibility
Climate control fans are weak at low speeds and noisy at high
