CR Model Summary
The redesigned X6 is a coupe-like sporty SUV based on the X5. Most versions are powered by a 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder; a 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 is also offered, along with the prodigiously powered X6 M. The AWD system can vary the torque from side to side, minimizing understeer. It has many attributes that are similar to the X5, but the styling severely hurts rear visibility, cabin access, and cargo storage. The standard seating arrangement is for four occupants; a five-passenger version is optional. A rear-wheel drive version is new.
