TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from. Yes, Porsche does make a family car, and this is it; the 2014 Cayenne runs the gamut from sporty errand mule to track-worthy sports SUV, with some interesting green options in between.
