Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The two-door "90" body style sees increased availability for 2021 and now comes in base, S, X, First Edition, and new X-Dynamic trims. Speaking of X-Dynamic, this new trim level is also now available on the four-door "110" model and provides the appearance items from the top-spec X without the expensive off-road-tech features, such as the adjustable air suspension and active differential.

PROS
Legendary off-road abilities,
smooth on-road ride,
nicely outfitted cabin.

CONS
Six-cylinder engine isn't as perky as expected,
best accessories and options add a lot to the bottom line,
brakes are difficult to smoothly modulate.

BMW's Active Driving Assistant is standard.Apple CarPlay is standard but on a subscription basis.Is the 2019 BMW X6 M a gigantic sports car or an ultra-sporty luxury SUV? The answer is "both" but also "neither." It's an automotive curio that exists outside typical car and SUV segments and defies traditional car-buying advice. But for those who do "get it," the X6 M won't disappoint.

PROS
Performance is astonishing for an SUV
High-quality interior packed with features
Seats are comfortable and supportive

CONS
Distinctive exterior design limits rear-seat room and cargo space
Sporty suspension may feel too firm for some drivers and passengers
Power delivery can feel overcaffeinated in regular driving

The X6 M is a style item: it has sleek lines, a plush interior, and a coveted badge on the hood. It’s also stunningly quick and handles more like a sports car than anything that weighs 5000 pounds has any right to. It’s powered by a 567-hp twin-turbo V-8. An eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive are standard, and up to 100 percent of torque can be routed to either the front or rear wheels, depending on driving conditions. It’s less practical than the boxy X5 M, but it’ll turn more heads.

Pros
Blistering performance,
commanding seating position.

Cons
Harsh ride,
constricted cargo space.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The BMW X6 M is a large SUV with a coupe body that offers sports car handling with all the practicality of a big 4×4.Driving is where the X6 M not only impresses but even amazes – there is endless grip and you rarely feel the 2.3-tonne weight of the car.

Pros
Astonishingly fast
High-quality interior
Great engine

Cons
Little bit of road noise
A tad firm
Not cheap
