2013 BMW X6 - Review


out of 10
For some, the design of the BMW X6 has grown on them over time--for others, it remains one of the most awkward of the luxury sport activity vehicles. Whichever camp you fall into, the 2013 BMW X6 carries forward that look--and some truly class-leading aspects as well, especially in X6 M form.

Handling more car-like than most SUVs that claim that attribute, the BMW X6 is the sports car of SUVs--or the supercar, if you're talking about the X6 M.

With 555 horsepower of twin-turbo V-8 fury on tap, fed through all four wheels to pour incredible feats of handling and acceleration all over your nearest track, the X6 M is no gimmick--it's the real deal. A truly track-capable sport ute, that's still useful on-road and (slightly) off the paved path.

Unique M Division styling give the X6 M a much more aggressive look, while handling and electronic driver aids are also much improved over standard X6s.

Like all X6s, however, the X6 M is a bit less practical than, say, the nearly identical X5, which has a larger cargo area. Both the standard 300-horsepower, 3.0-liter turbocharged xDrive35i and the 4.4-liter, twin-turbo V-8 xDrive50i X6s are more compliant than the X6 M, yet still very capable--perhaps even a bit more so off-road.

Likewise, all X6s offer similar accommodations inside, though the X6 M gets a much sportier theme. Seats are comfortable both in front and back, though the sloping roof line may cause taller rear passengers some head-room issues.
