Editor's Overview

It's hard to tell what exactly the X6 was designed for, but considering BMW calls it a "Sports Activity Vehicle," it's safe to say that it's good for a little bit of everything. While it doesn't quite get the SUV job done in terms of cargo and passenger room, the X6 is as perfectly comfortable off-road as is it is on, and its nimble driving characteristics will fulfill some sports car urges.

Shiny emerald of the Nile. The bullet of all cars and fastest.

I love the car it is awesome. It is fast. It is pretty. The stereo system is loud. The lights are bright and shiny.
