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:

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

Cons
Small cargo area
Poor rearward visibility
