2012 BMW X6 Styling

7.0
Styling
BMW's X6, reviled by some and inexplicable to many, is an oddball--an outcast. But for those that come to know it, it's also oddly attractive.

Above the beltline, the 2012 X6 is athletic, with a coupe-like profile mixed with hints of hatchback or fastback sedan. Below the beltline, it's the opposite: high-riding SUV cues dominate. For some, the combination is too illogical, too visually incongruent. For others, it's an acquired taste that improves with time and familiarity. For everyone, it's striking--particularly in high-performance X6 M guise.

Inside, the X6's design is much more conventional, with elegantly contoured surfaces outfitted in tasteful color schemes, and rich materials. The layout itself is perhaps more sedan-like than you might expect for an SUV-like vehicle, particularly the high-mounted center console.

The 2012 BMW X6's design is controversial, but for those that come to like it, it can pay dividends.
