Editor's Overview

Who would have thought marrying the tall ride height and all-wheel-drive ability of an SUV with the fastback styling of a sleek coupe would produce a desirable vehicle, but that’s exactly what BMW has done with the 2017 X6 SUV. Although not the most versatile vehicle, the X6 is a good match to the Mercedes-Benz GLE and Infiniti QX30.
