Editor's Overview

Part SUV, part sports coupe, the 2018 BMW X6 is an automotive amalgamation that stands out from the crowd. Based on the X5 midsize-luxury SUV, the X6 is less practical but more stylish thanks to its sloped roof. Starting around $64,000, its design comes at a premium but is still less expensive than the Mercedes-AMG GLE Coupe.

Just a little about my BMW x6.

I just got the car 2 weeks ago it only had 15k miles on it. My BMW x6 is fully loaded with custom interior. So far I have nothing but love for my x6 it is spacious for my two kids and fits all of my equipment it the back comfortably. If I start having issues or problem I will add it into the comments.

Driving BMW’s all year long baby.

Everything is great about my car! I love my car I have always dream of having this car. Now that I have this car I'll always keep up with it the performance is great everything I dreamed off.

- I B

Pretty conformable design and comfort

Very comfortable and attractive van to be in the city or make family trips, I quite like the design I would not exchange it for anything just for the following year I would buy a newer one
