2011 BMW X6 vs. Its Competition

The Range Rover Sport pairs a more compact version of the Range Rover with a more palatable price tag.

The Porsche Cayenne appeals to German sports car fans, but delivers cargo space and handles reasonably well for a big SUV.

Finally, the Infiniti FX50 offers the best bargain in the group-it's substantially less expensive than the others even in V-8 form and has more classically attractive styling than either the Porsche or Land Rover.

Quick Specs
The novelty of the four-door coupe/SUV is wearing off, but the X6's combination of utility and composed driving style still pleases.
The 2011 Infiniti FX35 and FX50 put the priority on looks and performance, and it's no secret that a little utility gets sacrificed in the process.
The 2011 Land Rover Range Rover Sport offers impressive performance and features, whether on-road or off.
The new 2011 Porsche Cayenne is one of the few vehicles you can take off-road and out to the track on the same day; it's leaner and more athletic than before, without giving up the off-road ability.
