The Range Rover Sport is, well, sporty, and a more compact version of the standard Range Rover, much like the X6's relationship to the X5.

The Porsche Cayenne offers similar or better handling, with slightly better cargo space than the X6.

Finally, Infiniti's pair of FX models closely mimics BMW's engine offerings, with a potent V-6 and an even stronger V-8, but with more classical styling, much lower prices, and more car-like demeanor.
