Expert Quotes:

The BMW X6 is the only X model to feature a sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles.
Automobile Magazine

In BMW fashion, materials are top-notch and the whole thing is put together beautifully.
Edmunds

With barely enough room for four and even less cargo space it's difficult to see where the X6 fits and even more difficult to figure out who would need let alone want something like this.
Motor Trend

About all you can see out of the X6 M’s towering tail is a six-inch glimpse of frothy jet contrails.
Car and Driver

While the suspension is definitely firm, it doesn't crash over large bumps in the road — which are unfortunately prevalent on the roads I frequent in Chicago — the way other cars can.
Cars.com

If it's comfort you're after, the X6 asks you to ask yourself: comfort for whom? Up front, the X6 is every inch the luxurious SUV (though you'd be hard-pressed to tell it from a BMW sedan if you weren't paying attention when you climbed into it) and comfort, materials, and features reflect that. In the rear seats, headroom is at a bit of a premium, though it can fit even taller passengers if they're not put off by close spaces.

Fit, finish, and construction are all top-notch, and that's reflected in the amount of noise that seeps into the cabin: not much, until you get the wide tires and large side mirrors toward the upper end of freeway speeds. The cargo area isn't vast, restricted by the sloping roof, but it offers more space than a typical sedan--back to defying categorization. Visibility, especially rearward, can be a difficult due to the narrow glass areas.

The X6 has 59.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the second-row seats tucked out of the way, but the X5 adds 25 percent more room for a total of 75 cubic feet.

Conclusion

The 2011 BMW X6 isn't as roomy as the X5, but it's enough for most and well-made throughout.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
