The Car Connection's Take

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 Porsche Cayenne offers more than enough on-the-road (or on-the-track) performance to satisfy enthusiast cravings, and it's likely to surprise and delight with its versatility and ruggedness.
