Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 BMW X6 started the coupe-like SUV trend, and keeps above the fold with potent powertrains.We know what the BMW X6 is not: It's not a coupe. It's not an SUV. It's not even really much of a family car.
We also know that it's not alone. Since it showed up nearly a decade ago, the X6 has been copied by Mercedes-Benz, Range Rover, and others. Even BMW sells an smaller version of the X6, the X4, and reportedly a smaller X2 is in the works.

Pros
Stylish body
V-8 is compelling in its performance
Functional rear seat
New touchscreen

Cons
A $6,000 premium over the X5
Ride is a little harsh
Not an off-roader and not a super sedan

By:

For 2017, the BMW X6 gets an updated iDrive system with touchscreen technology. The Premium and Executive option packages also now include wireless cellphone charging and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Pros
Powerful engines
Agile dynamics
Comfortable and quiet ride
Top-quality interior with comfortable front seats and ample storage.

Cons
Small cargo area
Poor rearward visibility
Limited rear headroom
Rear seats don't recline
Priced higher than many other luxury SUVs.

The 2017 BMW X6 ranks 15 out of 21 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The 2017 BMW X6 sits around the middle of our luxury midsize SUV rankings. Its stellar performance credentials keep it from falling too close to the bottom, but it doesn't have enough positives to elevate it above middling.

Pros
Powerful engine choices
Sporty handling
Upscale interior
Intuitive infotainment

Cons
Small back seat
Minimal cargo room
High price

The 2017 BMW X4 is an alternative approach to tall-riding SUVs, if you can even call it that.The 2017 BMW X4 is a nice thing. Describing it any further requires a little understanding and a break with conventional rules.It's not a coupe, and it's not much of an SUV. It's not a tall wagon, and the X4 certainly isn't much of a sedan.
Instead, it doubles down on the recipe that BMW tested with the bigger X6 and takes an existing SUV and tapers its roofline for a more interesting look and less interior space. In this case, the donor is the more upright X3, and the X4 is fashioned to be a direct rival to the Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Macan, and even the Lincoln MKC.

Pros
A seductive roofline
M40i is a true performance vehicle
Sticky handling
Base engine is plenty quick

Cons
Cargo and rear passenger space is compromised
Thick rear haunches
Not quite a Macan Turbo competitor

The 2017 BMW X4 ranks 13 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X4's strong engine options and sporty driving dynamics make it a great performer among luxury compact SUVs, but competitors offer more interior and cargo space, as well as higher predicted reliability scores.

Pros
Potent engines
User-friendly infotainment system
Accurate steering

Cons
Cramped back seats
Class-trailing cargo capacity

You might already know that sitting up high and having a commanding view of the road can be a great thing. So if you're looking for a luxury SUV that gives you that sense of security along with a sleek design and strong performance, the uniquely styled 2016 BMW X4 is an interesting alternative.
Mid way through last year the xDrive35i model was replaced by the more performance-oriented M40i model. For all 2017 models, wireless phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot are added to the options list, while the upgraded iDrive interface included with navigation has been updated. Finally, the steering wheel included in the optional M Sport package has a new design

Pros
Strong performance and good fuel economy from its two available engines
High-quality cabin looks and feels expensive
Comfortable ride quality despite its sporty nature
Responsive handling bettered only by pricier sport-tuned rivals
High-performance M40i trim level is a rarity for the segment.

Cons
Low rear seat reduces comfort relative to the X3 and most competitors
Small cargo area for a vehicle in this class
Rearward visibility is compromised by sloping roofline
Costs more than a similarly equipped X3 which offers more room inside
Some controls can be difficult to learn
Adaptive cruise control doesn't perform as well as those of rivals.
