2013 BMW X6 vs. Its Competition

2013 BMW X6
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Range Rover Sport is, well, sporty, and a more compact version of the standard Range Rover, much like the X6's relationship to the X5.

The Porsche Cayenne offers similar or better handling, with slightly better cargo space than the X6.

Finally, Infiniti's pair of FX models closely mimics BMW's engine offerings, with a potent V-6 and an even stronger V-8, but with more classical styling, much lower prices, and more car-like demeanor.

The 2013 Porsche Cayenne spans a wide range of capabilities, from basic family hauler to track-worthy sports SUV, with a few stops in between--including a brand new diesel.
8.2
The 2012 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 look like they sacrifice some practicality in the name of a sexy design and scorching performance—and that's exactly the case.
