The BMW X6 is like Don Corleone, which is to say it's the godfather of coupelike SUVs. The original that debuted back in the late s basically invented the controversial breed, which spawned imitators from the likes of Audi and Mercedes-Benz. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to these polarizing crossover coupes, the sloped-back Bimmer boasts a pair of sublime engines: a hp turbo four (40i) and a hp twin-turbo V-8 (M50i). Thrill seekers will want the latter, but it comes with a hefty price. Both mills are mated to an automatic transmission that's as smooth as they are. Peak performance is offered on the six-figure X6 M (reviewed separately), but even the less extreme models are entertaining to drive. The regular X5 is more upright and practical, but the BMW X6 is just as luxurious inside and better suited for extroverts.
What's New for ?
For , BMW makes a handful of alterations to the X6 lineup. The most notable update is the removal of a rear-drive, six-cylinder model. The X6 40i now comes standard with the brand's xDrive all-wheel-drive system. This contributes to a base price that rises by $, which is exactly what the previously optional system cost to add last year. Other small changes include the addition of enhanced Bluetooth and the subtraction of wireless device charging to the list of standard features, reshuffled option packages, a different selection of individual options, and new metallic paint colors (Sparkling Brown and Dravit Grey).
Pricing and Which One to Buy
Despite the burlier sounds and gutsier acceleration that the hp X6 M50i provides, we don't need to spend the nearly $20, extra on it. Instead, we'd stick with the six-cylinder X6 40i, which comes standard with all-wheel drive. We'd spring for the M Sport package that includes a snazzier body kit and exterior trim, an upgraded exhaust system, a retuned suspension, and a unique steering wheel. The Luxury Seating package is a solid value that adds ventilated front seats with extra power adjustments and massage functions. Those in cold-weather locales like us will appreciate the new Climate Comfort package. It includes four-zone climate control, heated seats in both rows, and a heated steering wheel and armrests.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The X6 40i is powered by a hp turbocharged liter inline-six that features a volt hybrid system and pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The M50i has the same transmission and all-wheel drive, too, but its twin-turbo liter V-8 is significantly more powerful. Its horsepower and pound-feet of torque helped it rocket to 60 mph in just seconds at our test track. What's even more shocking is that the X6 M has up to horsepower and is even quicker. Still, the standard six-cylinder powertrain is plenty quick and velvety smooth. Both the X6 40i and M50i also have standard adaptive dampers and wheel sizes that range from 20 to 22 inches. Our test of the Vpowered X6 revealed its impressive cornering grip and stopping power. Although its suspension is firmer than the setup found on the six-cylinder X6 we tested, it was never punishing. We also appreciated its adjustable steering heft and hushed interior at cruising speed.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
The all-wheel-drive-only X6 40i is rated at 21 mpg in the city and 25 on the highway. The much more powerful twin-turbo V-8 X6 M50i is rated at 16 mpg city and 22 highway. While the six-cylinder X6 exceeded the government's expectations on our mph highway fuel-economy route—part of our extensive testing regimen—earning 29 mpg highway, the M50i missed its mark by 2 mpg in the same test. For more information about the X6's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
Unsurprisingly, the X6 interior looks and feels like most other new BMW products. That means upscale materials and soft-touch surfaces abound, and two large inch digital displays dominate the dashboard. While the instrument panel looks slick, the gauges are a confusing mess. Thankfully, the optional head-up display is more straightforward. The rest of the switchgear is also smartly laid out. BMW's gesture controls—which enable you to control certain functions such as audio volume by waving your hand in front of the infotainment screen—are included but unnecessary. Plenty of standard amenities are offered, too, including way power-adjustable front seats, customizable ambient lighting, heated front cushions, and passive entry. While the back seat is comfortable for two adults, its legroom and headroom shrink by about 2 and 3 inches, respectively, compared with the boxier X5. Likewise, the X6 has less cargo volume behind the rear seats. In our test, it only held nine carry-on suitcases back there; the X5 handled
Infotainment and Connectivity
The standard inch touchscreen infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It operates through various functions such as traditional buttons, voice commands, a rotary controller on the center console, and even hand gestures. The company's iDrive interface has crisp graphics and immediate responses, but some of the layered menus can be distracting. BMW also offers upgrades such as built-in navigation, enhanced USB ports, wireless charging, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The X6 can also be upgraded with a premium Harman/Kardon stereo or an even more premium Bowers & Wilkins unit.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The Bimmer is available with a plethora of standard and optional driver-assistance technology. For more information about the X6's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:
- Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
- Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert
- Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
BMW provides limited and powertrain warranties that align with rival luxury automakers such as Audi and Mercedes-Benz. However, BMW offers one of the best complimentary maintenance plans in the industry apart from Jaguar.
- Limited warranty covers four years or 50, miles
- Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50, miles
- Complimentary maintenance is covered for three years or 36, miles

BMW X6 Review: The Ultimate Oddball
The BMW X6 may have started life out as an awkward and rather unsightly coupe-styled SUV, but it has since become a popular offering from the Bavarian brand and has seen many try to imitate its arresting looks. It's still not outright pretty, but it's not the hideous monstrosity it started out as either. For those seeking something a little less conventional than the X5, the X6 offers athletic design and sporty driving chops, too. Considered separately to the X6 M, there's still lots to love about the regular X6, from its base six-cylinder variant to its range-topping X6 M50i model, which produces more than enough power to make the X6 M seem a little irrelevant. However, despite being one of the first to do it, is the SUV-coupe niche better represented by competitors like the Land Rover Range Rover Sport?

New BMW X6 Changes: 🚙What’s the difference vs the BMW X6?
The biggest news for the model year is that the base rear-wheel-drive X6 sDrive40i has been dropped from the lineup. The xDrive40i all-wheel-drive version of this model becomes the new entry-level car, raising the point of entry to the X6 range by $2, Wireless charging is no longer a standard fitment and other extras and option packages have been shuffled around a bit. For example, the Climate Comfort package has been reconfigured and the Convenience package is no longer available for the base car. The Premium and Executive packages have also seen changes. An enhanced Bluetooth system is now fitted. There are two new paint colors as well: Dravit Grey and Sparkling Brown.
Pros and Cons
- Class-leading handling
- Eye-catching styling
- Brilliant acceleration
- Stunning cabin
- Numerous customization choices
- Poor rearward visibility
- Small cargo area compared to X5
- Can get very expensive

The exterior of the BMW X6 is still rather polarising, with a love-it-or-hate-it look that is certainly unique. The front is rather normal, with large kidney grilles framed by adaptive LED headlights and LED fog lights, while the hood is straked as usual. The top of the car features a panoramic sunroof while the slope of that roof is complemented by meaty fenders that house inch wheels as standard, with 21s or 22s available. At the rear, a subtle double roof spoiler is visible along with a hatch spoiler, elongated adaptive LED brake lights, a faux diffuser, and a dual-exit exhaust system. For the M50i model, a special M Sport body kit is fitted that adds a little more aggression.
The dimensions of the BMW X6 are rather typical for the class. Length measures inches with a wheelbase of inches while the width is measured at inches excluding mirrors. Height starts at inches with the M50i model at inches. The base model's curb weight is rated at 4, pounds while the M50i model increases in heft to 5, lbs. Ground clearance, although likely insignificant to most buyers, is inches for the regular models and inches for the M50i.

Performance is a big part of BMW's DNA, and that's especially true with a vehicle that is intended to evoke a sporty feeling. Even without the top M50i model, the stats on the regular X6 are impressive. The xDrive40i is powered by a liter turbocharged straight-six combined with a volt mild-hybrid system that produces a total of horsepower and lb-ft of torque. This helps it accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in seconds. Top speed is limited to mph, but that can be upped to mph with the right tires and an increased top speed limiter.
If you really want to go fast though, the X6 M50i variant is the one to pick. This model features a liter twin-turbo V8, much like the X6 M, albeit with less power. There's still plenty of motivation though, as you get hp and lb-ft of torque. The result is a mph sprint in just seconds and a top speed of with performance tires. We have no doubt that the M50i is capable of higher speeds, but that would cause it to step on the toes of the X6 M. Despite this impressive performance ability, you can spec a trailer package and lug up to 7, pounds behind you, too. Not bad for a sporty SUV.
Engine and Transmission
The standard engine in the BMW X6 is a liter turbocharged straight-six that generates hp and lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed ZF automatic transmission helps manage the power. Thanks to the twin-scroll design of the turbocharger, lag is nonexistent and the delivery of power throughout the rev range is strong and smooth. It's not a huge fan of revving all the way to the red line, but it is responsive and powerful, and the short ratios of the sharp and smooth automatic are a perfect companion. Acceleration from the line or on the freeway is good, which helps one forget just how heavy this SUV is.
On the X6 M50i, there's a stunning liter twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood. It is also paired with the same eight-speed automatic from ZF and generates hp and lb-ft of torque. This engine is just incredible, and although you rarely want for more in the base X6 variants, driving the M50i model makes that lesser version seem almost lethargic. Acceleration and power at any engine speed are brilliant, and the X6 M50i feels like a properly sporty machine. As we mentioned earlier, the existence of this variant, which is both comfortable and powerful, makes one question why the need for an X6 M exists at all.

Handling and Driving Impressions
Despite its sporty styling and performance-minded deposition, the X6 is remarkably compliant and comfortable. The suspension helps smooth over small bumps and big undulations with ease, but those more accustomed to the lavish ride of your typical Mercedes-Benz offering will note a hint of harshness that may not suit everyone. For this reason, we recommend a test drive before signing on the dotted line, as some of the X6's competition may offer a softer feel. Or opt for the optional adaptive air suspension. However, we must also mention that going on such a drive may just make you fall in love with the way this large machine handles, as the steering is sharp and the nose goes exactly where you place it. Sure, there are occasions where some common sense will need to be applied to avoid dangerous understeer, but for the most part, the overall experience is simply mesmerizing.
This hefty SUV handles a lot better than it should, and its rivals from Ingolstadt and Affalterbach are less engaging in the corners. Overall, the blend of grip, steering accuracy, and minimal body roll makes the X6 a brilliant vehicle to play with. The Dynamic Handling package that adds active roll stabilization and Integral Active Steering is no longer available for the xDrive40i from this year, but only for the M50i, sharpening up the handling significantly. For an electrically-assisted steering setup, this is brilliant. Two-axle air suspension can further enhance the comfort and performance characteristics of the vehicle, but the X6 M50i is the ultimate in the range with the availability of optional M Sport brakes, but last year's electronic M Sport rear differential is sadly no longer offered. Regardless of which model you opt for, braking is good and easy to modulate, with the mild-hybrid system's brake regeneration system failing to disrupt the experience in any noticeable way.
X6 Gas Mileage
Gas mileage is rarely a concern for the premium luxury SUV buyer, but it's still good to know what to expect. On the base X6, the EPA estimates that the SUV is capable of 21/25/23 mpg city/highway/combined. With a gallon gas tank, it will achieve around miles of mixed driving range. However, the M50i variant is a lot less economical, with figures of 16/22/18 mpg and an average range of around miles.

* BMW X6 xDrive40i AWD
The interior of the X6 is quite spacious and attractive, although those in the rear seats would certainly appreciate rather being in an X5 due to diminished headroom from the sloping roofline. Nevertheless, there's plenty of legroom and the mix of Vernasca leather on the seats and door panels combined with SensaTec faux leather on the dash makes this a very luxurious place to be. Dual inch screens for driver info and infotainment mix well with the aesthetic of the cabin and add a high-tech look to it, while way power front seats with heating ensure that journeys are comfortable and relaxing.
Seating and Interior Space
The BMW X6 coupe seats five in relative comfort, but six-footers will not appreciate being consigned to the second row on longer journeys. There's enough legroom back there, but the sloping roofline does take its toll. In front, there's plenty of space for passengers of any size, and the standard way power front seats ensure that anyone can find a comfortable and commanding driving position. Getting in and out is easy too, but the roofline once again has a negative impact. Visibility is also impacted as looking out the back or checking blind spots is a little tricky, but otherwise, sitting in the X6 is an enjoyable experience.
Interior Colors and Materials
Vernasca leather is standard in the BMW X6 SUV, with SensaTec faux leather adorning the dash and wood or aluminum accents adding contrast. There's quite a bit of choice on offer, with six colors available as standard. These include Ivory White, Canberra Beige, Tacora Red, Coffee, Cognac, and Black. Premium Merino leather is also available for $1,, with a choice of Ivory White/Night Blue, plain Ivory White, Black, Coffee, and Tartufo. Trim elements available include Brown-Metallic Ash Grain Wood, Aluminum Dark Mesh, and Aluminum Tetragon. The X6 M50i also has access to carbon fiber at $, and Individual Piano Black or BMW Individual Fineline Black at $1, each. However, some of the more premium options will require the addition of other packages too, so the real price can be much higher.
X6 Trunk and Cargo Space
Cargo space is part of the reasoning behind choosing an SUV over a sedan or hatchback. However, the X5 is a better choice here, with cubic feet more volume than the X6's cubic feet. Although that's still enough for weekend luggage for each occupant and a little more, you may prefer to fold the 40/20/40 rear seats to open up a space of cubic feet for larger items.
In the cabin, both rows get a pair of cupholders, while those up front also get center armrest storage and a spot in the center console along with a glovebox. Each door also has large door pockets.
X6 Infotainment and Features
All new X6 models are well-equipped with standard features, including launch control, power-folding heated wing mirrors, dynamic cruise control, a inch digital driver display, keyless entry with push-button start, a hands-free power tailgate with remote release, rain-sensing wipers, a panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade, configurable multicolor ambient lighting, way power adjustable and heated front seats, parking sensors front and rear, a rearview camera, and adaptive LED headlights and brake lights. You also get forward collision detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure warning, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a crash preparation system. The X6 M50i model adds to this with way front seats, and quad-zone climate control. Available packages will add combinations of features such as remote start, a head-up display, gesture control, LED headlights with laser light, a panoramic LED roof lighting system, massaging front seats, traffic jam assist, lane keep assist, and an evasion aid. You can also spec a parking assistant, and surround-view camera, heated rear seats, heated front armrests, and a heated steering wheel.
Infotainment on the new BMW X6 is handled through a inch touchscreen display with voice control and the iDrive operating system. It includes HD Radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. You also get Bluetooth and two USB ports, and navigation. A ten-speaker sound system is standard and last year's speaker Harman Kardon sound system is no longer available for the xDrive40i, but at least it's standard on the M50i. The M50i's optional Bowers & Wilkins speaker setup has also been dropped. As usual, the infotainment system's graphics are clean and sharp and display vibrant images, and the interface is easy to adapt to and understand.
X6 Problems and Reliability
Reliability is an important part of our research, and in review of the BMW X6's time on the market thus far, there are indications that things aren't quite perfect. The variant was subject to six recalls, for problems such as headlights with non-conforming lenses, a potential loss in tire pressure due to inner tire layers failing, misassembled volt batteries, loss of ABS and/or braking assistance, backup camera malfunctions, and loose steering-column shafts. So far, there have been no recalls for the model. Still, J.D. Power awarded the variant a superb quality and reliability rating of 90 out of but there's no rating yet.
In terms of warranty coverage, the X6 comes with a four-year/50,mile limited warranty and four years of unlimited roadside assistance. Maintenance is covered for the first three years or 36, miles.

Thus far, neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has yet rated the safety of the X6 in the USA, but the very similar X5 has performed very well in reviews conducted by both agencies.
Key Safety Features
As standard, the X6 comes with a multitude of safety features that include adaptive LED headlights with auto high beams, adaptive LED brake lights, rain-sensing wipers, dynamic cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, forward collision alert, blind-spot monitoring, and lane departure warning. You also get a collision preparation system that closes windows and tightens seatbelts if a crash is imminent. You also get frontal, side-impact, and overhead airbags to tally six, while options include park assist, a surround-view camera, and traffic jam assist.
Verdict: 🏁Is the BMW X6 a Good SUV?
The BMW X6 series of vehicles, which comprises only a six-cylinder variant and a V8 M-fettled model, is more compelling than ever before. However, these SUVs are also inherently flawed, with that swooping roofline detracting from the practicality for which SUVs are usually chosen. Nevertheless, its popularity highlights that some people want coupe styling in a big, brutish package. However, while others may be mostly show and little go, the X6 backs up its sporty styling with brilliant handling and a truly engaging drive. In addition, it comes with a long list of standard features and plenty of customization options, especially when it comes to color schemes, both inside and out. We would recommend visiting a dealer to see the upholstery options in person as pics don't quite do them justice. But, no matter what you opt for, the X6 is luxurious, powerful, and exciting. The infotainment system is brilliant too, but is the cost of the BMW X6 worth it over that of the X5 while getting less out of the experience? On paper, the answer is no, but if you want something that looks unlike anything else on the road, the X6 is very tough to pass on.
🚘What's the Price of the BMW X6 SUV?
The X6 is available in two configurations in the US, with the base model being the cheapest. It starts at a base price of $67, before a $ destination charge. The price of a BMW X6 M50i is $86,, but depending on how much you're willing to spend, that can be inflated considerably. A fully loaded model will carry a price in excess of $,
BMW X6 Models
With the loss of last year's rear-wheel-drive sDrive40i base model, the BMW X6 range has now been pared down to two models, both all-wheel drive, namely the xDrive40i and the M50i. We review the X6 M separately.
The xDrive40 is powered by a liter turbocharged inline-six with hp and lb-ft of torque, sending the power to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. Standard equipment includes Icon adaptive LED headlights, inch alloy wheels, adaptive brake lights, power-folding and heated exterior rear-view mirrors, a hands-free power tailgate, and a panoramic sunroof with a power sunshade. Inside, Vernasca leather upholstery is standard, as well as power-adjustable and heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. The infotainment system consists of dual inch screens and it incorporates enhanced Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a ten-speaker audio system.
The M50i additionally receives the M Sport body kit, adaptive M suspension, blacked-out Shadowline exterior trim, and M Sport brakes with blue calipers, besides its hp V8 engine. Inside, way electrically adjustable and ventilated multi-contour front seats are added, as well as quad-zone climate control. The audio system is upgraded to a speaker Harman Kardon setup. This model has access to more interior and exterior finishes too, as well as additional extras.
Although the M50i variant gets an M Sport body kit as standard, it is available on the lesser models too at a cost of $3, For the xDrive40i, there is a Premium Package that can be had for $1,, which equips remote engine start, gesture control, and a head-up display; this is $1, on the M50i, which already has remote engine start. The available Executive Package adds these features as well as a LED-lit Panoramic Sky Lounge roof, rear side-window shades, glass controls for the iDrive controller, gear shift, and start/stop button, and Icon adaptive LED headlights for $3, to the lower trim. This again costs less - $3, - on the M50i that already has remote engine start. Other options for the xDrive40i include a Driving Assistance Package ($1,), Luxury Seating ($1,), a Shadowline Package ($) that blacks out the exterior trim, and Parking Assistance ($), while standalone add-ons include heated armrests and steering wheel for $, an Anthracite Alcantara headliner for $, four-zone climate control for $, glass controls for $, air suspension for $1,, and M Sport brakes with either red or blue calipers for $
And, if you've decided on the M50i model already, upgrades for this model include the exclusive Dynamic Handling Package for $2,, front massaging seats for $1,, and a leather dashboard for $
🚗What BMW X6 Model Should I Buy?
Although the lesser-powered xDrive40i is highly impressive, we're tempted to go with the thirstier M50i variant. The added performance that this model offers is simply exhilarating and makes the X6 M seem almost redundant. In addition, you get a number of features thrown in, including an M Sport body kit, adaptive M suspension, a speaker Harman Kardon sound system, quad-zone climate control, and better front seats. The only option that we deem truly necessary is the parking assistant system, as looking out that letterbox of a rear window is a problem. Adding this option costs only $

BMW X6 vs BMW X5
The BMW X5 is the biggest problem that the X6 has to deal with. Not only does it offer broadly the same features as the X6 while also providing more cargo volume behind the rear seats, but it's also cheaper. While the X6 starts at over $67,, the X5 is sold for a starting price of $59, It comes in more configurations as the X6 - also a RWD base model and a hybrid - but offers more practicality and better headroom for rear passengers. It also has an arguably more appealing overall aesthetic, although some will still prefer the oddball looks of the X6. Ultimately, there's no real difference beyond the obvious of the body style and the price with even fuel consumption figures being similar, so the choice will come down to personal preference.
BMW X6 vs BMW X4
If you're dead set on an SUV with coupe styling but can't quite look past that $67, price tag that accompanies the X6, you may be tempted by the X4, which starts at $51, However, those savings have their downsides. The X4's base variant is powered by a liter turbocharged four-pot that produces hp and lb-ft of torque. Like the X6, handling is brilliant and practicality is low, but the styling is a little better resolved in our opinion and the X4 looks much bigger than it feels on the road. The cabin is very much like a scaled-down X6, with a pair of digital screens and numerous options. It's a great vehicle and there's plenty to love about it, but we suspect the additional space and power of the X6 will be worth the added investment.

BMW X6 Expert Review
Essentially an X5 with a rebellious streak, the BMW X6 competes in the niche midsize luxury fastback SUV segment with the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and Porsche Cayenne Coupe. The BMW's sloped roof gives it a standout design, but limits practicality. For the model year, the X6 receives minor updates.
- Rear-wheel-drive sDrive40i trim is no longer available
- Wireless charging removed as standard equipment
- Enhanced Bluetooth for xDrive40i, X6 M
- Sparkling Brown Metallic and Dravit Grey Metallic paint colors have been added
- Glass controls added as an individual option
- M Compound Brakes with red calipers become a no cost option on X6 M
- New Climate Comfort package brings front and rear heated seats, heated armrests and steering wheel, and four-zone climate control
- Convenience package has been removed for xDrive40i
- Convenience package content has been removed from Premium and Executive packages
- Front/rear heated seats have been removed as an individual option
We can discuss the questionable design aesthetic of fastback SUVs all day, but at its core, the X6 is compelling. The most interesting variant is the X6 M Competition, whose prodigious power makes the world go blurry and shoves you into the back of your seat as soon as you hit the throttle. Similarly, braking is lightning quick. Its nimble steering belies its 5,+ pound curb weight. Unfortunately, all that power and performance requires sacrifices to road comfort. This model rides fine over smooth pavement, but roughly over imperfect surfaces. The SUV wasn't quite polished enough to win our Super SUV comparison.
Less of a showstopper is the xDrive40i, which suffers from jerky throttle responses at low speeds. Steering requires lots of little corrections, too. Ride quality on our tester suffered due to the optional inch staggered performance tires.
Although the chopped roof hinders cargo space in the X6, there's still plenty of room back there. We can easily fit four golf bags, or a weekend's worth of luggage for two, in the cargo bay. Up front, drivers and passengers will enjoy a well-appointed cabin. BMW's tricky infotainment system remains a point of contention, however.
The BMW X6 isn't as impractical as it may seem. If you like the look and don't mind the steep price, this SUV is a fun alternative to the X5, particularly in its more potent variants.
All BMW X6 models feature an eight-speed automatic transmission and AWD.
The xDrive40i features a liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine good for hp and lb-ft of torque. When we tested this variant, we clocked a mph time of seconds. Fuel economy is rated 21/25 mpg.
On the M50i, a liter twin-turbo V-8 delivers hp and lb-ft of torque, good for a fuel economy rating of 16/22 mpg.
Step up to the X6 M, and the liter twin-turbo V-8 makes hp, or hp when equipped with the Competition package. Regardless, torque is lb-ft and fuel economy comes out to 13/18 mpg. When we launched an X6 M Competition on the track, we hit 60 mph in just seconds. We were also impressed with its mph braking performance, taking just feet to reach a complete stop.
