2021 BMW X6 Review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 BMW X6?

Redesigned last year, the BMW X6 is essentially a fastback “four-door coupe” version of the X5 mid-size luxury SUV with room for five. X6 powertrain choices include a 335-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine with rear- (sDrive40i) or all-wheel drive (xDrive40i) or a 523-hp, turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with all-wheel drive in the M50i. The high-performance X6 M features a 600-hp, turbocharged 4.4-liter V-8. All versions come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Competitors include the Audi Q8 and Porsche Cayenne Coupe

What’s New on the 2021 BMW X6?

Android Auto smartphone connectivity and a one-year satellite radio subscription are now standard. Meanwhile, 40i versions gain mild-hybrid technology.  

What Features in the 2021 BMW X6 Are Most Important?

  • 12.3-inch configurable instrument display
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity
  • 12.3-inch touchscreen multimedia system
  • Navigation
  • Forward collision warning with city collision mitigation
  • Low-speed hands-free driving system available

Should I Buy the 2021 BMW X6?

If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s large enough for most families and combines traditional SUV virtues with an arguably more stylish look, the X6 could be for you. It offers plenty of luxury and tech features, as well as available all-wheel drive. The coupelike shape isn’t for everyone, however, and the design compromises cargo room.

Sportiest and fastest SUV we've ever owned!

This car is much more comfortable than other mid-size SUVs we test drove. Luxurious seating and small details that sets this car apart from the competition. Very sleek look! AND when you want to "giddy up" - it giddies up and GOES! The engine power is awesome!

Most Comfortable Car I Ever Owned

The BMW X6 is exactly what I was looking for. I had my eye on it for years as it has an appealing design. Now was my time to buy. It is stylish, both inside and out, and very comfortable. I love the handling and the user interface. I give it a 10 out of 10.
