TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW X6 stays ahead of the SUV curve with its graceful roofline and hard-charging M performance—but at what point is it not an SUV anymore? The 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport adds two new dimensions to its performance profile: a turbodiesel V-6 and a supercharged HST edition. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class doesn't crow about off-roading: it's more concerned with things like fuel economy and in the AMG, superhero acceleration.
