BMW X6 SUV (2015 - )

The X6 is a car you buy with your heart rather than your head. It has some shortcomings, but if you like the way it looks, you’ll be prepared to put up with them. On the other hand, if you’re just looking for a SUV that can give you sporty thrills, you can buy something better than this.

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The X6 is the most expensive car in BMW’s line-up of X-models, and it has a suitably high-quality interior. Leather upholstery is standard across the range, as are brushed aluminium trim and ambient lighting (whose colour can be adjusted), while higher-spec versions come with high-gloss wood trim. Overall, it’s not quite as smart as you’ll find in a comparable Audi, but at least you feel like you’re getting your money’s worth. It’s all nice and easy to use, too, with the dash dominated by a clear screen that displays details of the infotainment system. This is all run by the rotary iDrive controller, which is the best system of its type, and has the added benefit of keeping to a minimum the number of buttons on the dash. To cap it all, the driving position is excellent, with electrically adjustable front seats on M Sport trim, and the head-up display is a useful option. The driver gets a decent view to the front, but the thick windscreen pillars restrict your view at T-junctions, and the over-the-shoulder view is poor. Little wonder that front and rear parking sensors are standard on every model.
