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

The 2012 BMW X6 lacks for no comfort and few luxuries in the front seats, but the rear seats are a bit short on headroom.

Whichever row you're in, the X6 offers top-notch fit, finish, and construction, with minimal wind and road noise. The seats themselves also catch a nice balance between support and softness, with the front seats well-bolstered, but not hard to enter or exit.

Cargo area is good, but compromised by the sloped roof. Still, compared to a sedan, it's quite roomy; compared to an SUV, it leaves something to be desired. Compared to a wagon or hatchback, it's right on the mark, with about 59.6 cubic feet of available cargo space with the second-row seats folded down.

The X6 continues to blend genres, but does so in mostly successful ways.

Conclusion

The 2012 BMW X6 isn't as roomy as a full-size SUV, but it's well-built and the sedan-like environment will appeal to many.

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.
