What Is the 2016 BMW X6?
The 2016 BMW X6 is coupelike in appearance but has many SUV qualities. It seats five and competes with the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe, Land Rover Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne. It is available in three trim levels: the sDrive35i, xDrive35i and xDrive50i. The sDrive35i has rear-wheel drive, and the xDrive35i and xDrive50i come with all-wheel drive. The high-performance X6 M is covered separately.
What's New on the 2016 BMW X6?
For the 2016 model year, the xDrive50i trim features four-zone automatic air conditioning as well as a Harman Kardon surround-sound system.
How Does the 2016 BMW X6 Compare to Other Coupelike SUVs?
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport is nearly identical in price to the X6, but it is slightly larger. The Porsche Cayenne is also slightly bigger than the X6, but it is more expensive.
What Features in the 2016 BMW X6 Are Most Important?
The BMW X6 is powered by a 300-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine. To get the 567-hp, twin-turbocharged V-8, drivers will need to opt for the X6 M. Significant standard features include a power moonroof, power liftgate, 19-inch alloy wheels, automatic climate control, a navigation system, leather upholstery, heated front seats, and front and rear parking sensors. As required in every new car, the X6 is outfitted with front airbags, antilock brakes and an electronic stability system.

Should I Buy the 2016 BMW X6?
Highlights of the 2016 BMW X6 include impressive ride quality, comfortable sport seats and unique styling. However, its low roof limits backseat headroom, and rear visibility is poor. If you are looking for a vehicle with ample cargo space, there are better options available, starting with the BMW X5 on which this more stylistic model is based.
