The X6 is a coupe-like, four-passenger sporty SUV based on the X5. A turbocharged 3.0-liter, six-cylinder engine powers most versions. A 4.4-liter V8 is also offered. The standard all-wheel-drive system can vary the torque from side to side to minimize understeer, similar to the system in the Acura MDX. Styling severely hurts rear visibility and cabin access. A five-passenger version is optional. An expensive hybrid trim and a high-performance M model are also available.
