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 Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe is the sporty counterpart to the more upright and traditional looking Mercedes-Benz GLE SUV. Note the nomenclature difference: Not only is the GLE Coupe, well, a "coupe," it also bears the AMG label in its name. This is because this year, the GLE Coupe is available only in two different AMG forms: the turbocharged-V6-powered Mercedes-AMG GLE43 Coupe, and the turbo-V8-powered Mercedes-AMG GLE63 S Coupe. The GLE Coupe goes against the likes of the BMW X6 by offering a sleeker body and better driving dynamics than the SUV upon which it's based. The 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe is the sporty counterpart to the standard GLE SUV. Don't expect much utility from this SUV though, as the GLE Coupe puts a priority on design.

Pros
The Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe offers some of the characteristics of an SUV -- all-wheel drive, improved cargo capacity, and a taller ride height -- with the design and performance of a luxury sport sedan. If that sounds like you, take a look.

Cons
The GLE Coupe isn't cheap, with a starting price higher than the GLE SUV. In addition, like the GLE, it's based on an older platform that's considerably heavier than newer Mercedes-Benz products. If you want something similar, but more modern, the Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe is a little smaller, but far more nimble.

The GLE Coupe is Mercedes’ answer to the BMW X6 – it’s a sporty 4×4 SUV coupe. Underneath the GLE Coupe’s sexier curves you’ll find the same mechanical bits as on the more traditional looking GLE.The GLE Coupe is a more stylish version of the GLE that still has plenty of passenger space.
The GLE Coupe is a good all-rounder for buyers who want a large 4×4 but with a more exciting shape than the usual box-like offerings. It has a big boot, a range of powerful engines and a lovely interior.

Pros
Quick
Classy interior
Big boot

Cons
Expensive to run
High boot lip
Only one diesel option
