2014 BMW X6 vs. Its Competition

2014 BMW X6
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The Range Rover Sport and Porsche Cayenne are both models that are considerably larger and more practical than the X6.

The Cayenne offers handling that's just as good if not better, while packing in much more cargo space and a better back seat.

The Range Rover Sport is new this year—lighter, faster, and more of an enthusiast model than ever.

Over at Infiniti, the new QX70 (actually the FX, but rebadged) is stylish and drives like a sport sedan but lacks refinement and back-seat comfort.

Quick Specs
8.0
The 2014 BMW X6 bends genres, in mostly successful ways; but whether you like it depends on what you're crossing over from.
8.0
The looks of a coupe, the performance of a sport sedan, and the cabin and features of a true luxury car are all here in the 2014 Infiniti QX70. Provided you don't expect a lot of outdoorsy ability, cargo space, or a roomy back seat, it'll leave you charmed.
9.0
The 2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport has the most convincing answer to the sporty-SUV conundrum.
8.2
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.
7.8
The 2013 Acura ZDX is beautiful and well-detailed, as well as quite fun to drive, but its odd utility-sport-coupe design mostly misses the mark on practicality.
