The BMW X6 is the only X model to feature a sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles.
In BMW fashion, materials are top-notch and the whole thing is put together beautifully.
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.
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.
The X6's interior, like it's exterior, is of two natures: the front seats are spacious and comfortable, while the rear seats are short on headroom and lack some of the features you'll find in the second row of more traditional SUVs.
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.
While cargo area is good compared to a mid-sized sedan, the sloped roof impinges on the space available for larger items. Taken against a lower-roofed, lower-riding hatchback or wagon, however, the X6 is right on target, with about 59.6 cubic feet of cargo space once the second-row seats are folded down.
The X6 continues to blend genres, but does so in mostly successful ways.
While it's not as useful or spacious as a full-size SUV, the 2013 BMW X6 is an interesting blend of car- and SUV-like features.
