The 2021 BMW X6 trades some of the X5’s utility for a fashion moment, but doesn’t miss a performance beat.

Pros
Distinct shape
Better look
Impressive performance
Available twin-turbo V-8 power

Cons
Cramped rear head room
Expensive
Not as practical as an X5
Big rear blind spots

The 2021 X6 lineup adds some new standard features, drops some old ones, and gets revised option packages. The most notable new addition is Android Auto, which was previously not available and now comes standard. However, BMW eliminates previous options such as the acoustic glass, glass interior controls, rear-entertainment system, and night vision with pedestrian detection. The six-cylinder X6 now features a 48-volt hybrid system, and the V-8-powered version adds standard remote start and ventilated front seats.

Pros
Smooth and speedy powertrains,
athletic handling and refined ride quality, f
ulfills luxury mission.

Cons
Unintuitive infotainment interface,
X5 has a bigger cargo area,
V-8 upgrade requires a significant investment.

By: 
caranddriver.com

Minor changes to feature availability and option packages for 2021.

Pros
Strong acceleration from both engines
Comfortable and quiet ride
High-quality interior

Cons
Sloping roofline cuts down on cargo space
Rear visibility is less than ideal
Limited rear headroom
