2009 BMW X6 vs. Its Competition

2008 BMW X6-Series xDrive35i
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

BMW says that next year, it will offer the X6 with a new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter clean diesel engine as well as a Two-Mode hybrid drive system.

Either version should help improve the X6’s somewhat dismal fuel economy ratings of 15/20 mpg for the six-cylinder version.

Quick Specs
A novel idea (unless you know the old AMC Eagle), the 2009 BMW X6 strikes us as a good-looking car flawed by its mismatched personalities.
The 2009 Infiniti FX offers a truly distinctive shape and sportscarlike acceleration. If you need to haul plywood or lots of kids, though, look elsewhere.
The 2009 Porsche Cayenne isn’t as practical as other SUVs its size, but it handles like a Porsche.
There may not be a better way to pose on road or off than from behind the wheel of a 2008 Land Rover Range Rover Sport.
