The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW X6 continues to stun with its controversial style, while improving its on-road performance with a rear-drive option and a more powerful V-8. The 2015 Porsche Cayenne is no longer the only blasphemous off-roader in the Porsche family; this year, it gets improved powertrains and massaged looks in a familiar package.
