KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen

Think of the 2018 BMW X6 as the more vivacious, less practical sibling of the X5. Whereas the BMW X5 midsize-luxury SUV prioritizes hauling people and gear, the X6 favors a sportier nature and design flair with its coupe-like form. This blending of a high-riding premium-crossover SUV with a sports coupe may seem strange, but the X6 has found success among laissez-faire buyers and a newer German rival in the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. The X6 packs a turbocharged 6-cylinder or V8 engine, and can be had in even more powerful form as the X6 M (reviewed separately). Form over function has a price in the X6. At nearly $64,000, the X6 starts over $6,000 beyond its X5 brother.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a nonconformist sport-utility vehicle that’s more sport than utility yet still boasts BMW’s luxury and performance credentials, the 2018 X6 remains a standout. With an ample 8.3 inches of ground clearance and optional all-wheel drive, the X6 is also a worthy winter-weather hauler.

You May Not Like This Car If...

With its signature sloping roof, cargo space and rear sightlines take a back seat to style in the X6. Unlike the X5, there is no 3rd-row option, and BMW prices this “Sports Activity Coupe” higher than the X5. Mercedes’ AMG-finessed GLE Coupe rivals, meanwhile, win the horsepower war.

What's New for 2018

There are only minor changes for the 2018 BMW X6. Among them are updates to the iDrive infotainment system, upgraded navigation and new wheel options.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The X6 isn’t just an amalgamation in the way it looks. The same is true of the experience behind the wheel. Counterintuitive as it may seem, the BMW X6 is one dynamic performer. First, it’s fast. The 6-cylinder models can do 0-60 mph in a commendable six seconds flat. Step up to the V8-powered xDrive50i, and you can hit that number in 4.6 seconds -- right up there with high-powered sports cars. Beyond impressive straight-line performance, the X6 has respectable cornering ability for such a large and heavy vehicle. One differentiator between the BMW X6 and Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe is that you can get the X6 in rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) vs. just AWD in the Mercedes. This is relevant because some sports-car purists want a rear-drive car. It also enables the BMW to undercut the Mercedes’ starting prices by about $7,500. When not trying to imitate a BMW M3, the X6 has comfortable highway manners. Two things to be aware of are its massive rear blind spots and the engine’s start/stop system, which cuts power at idle to save fuel. At least the latter can be remedied by disabling that feature with the press of a button.

Favorite Features

The X6 has the design and attitude of a maverick, yet is wholly part of the BMW brand portfolio. It’s also a progenitor, spawning the smaller X4 and X2, along with rivals from other brands.

If your ears can appreciate an audiophile sound system and your pockets are deep enough to spend an extra $4,500, this high-end 16-speaker audio system aims to make sonic journeys as memorable as your actual ones.
