The 2013 BMW X6 is still a head-turner, though it's not as much of an oddball as it once was.

Expert Quotes:

While automakers are keen on this fashionable cross-breeding, we're not particularly thrilled with the result.
Edmunds

Looking at the X6 from the outside, you immediately think sporty SUV.
Motor Trend

If you took BMW's Z4, raised it up and lengthened the rear quarters to add two more doors, you would get something of the X6's profile.
Cars.com

When folks first happen upon BMW’s peculiarly proportioned X6, they can’t get over its skyscraper butt.
Car and Driver

Quite a departure from other BMW vehicles, the exterior styling is both loved and hated, depending on who you talk to.
Automobile Magazine

The 2013 BMW X6 carries forward an usual mix of stylistic and design elements. New details this year include a slightly wider kidney grille, repositioned fog lights, optional full-LED headlights ($1,900), and redesigned tail lights with two LED bars.

Above the beltline, the 2013 X6 is graceful, even athletic, with coupe- and fastback-like properties in its curves.

Below the beltline, it's the opposite; tall, somewhat off-road-flavored SUV cues dominate. For some, the combination is too visually incongruous, or simply too weird. For others, it's an acquired taste that improves with time and familiarity. Still others love the X6 on sight.

Dress the X6 up in X6 M guise, and it's even more striking, and perhaps even more controversial--what's a crossover doing looking like a supercar?

Inside, the X6's design is conventional, with elegantly contoured surfaces outfitted in tasteful, even classic, 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--and the tight back seat.

Conclusion

The 2013 BMW X6 is still a head-turner, though it's not as much of an oddball as it once was.

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.
