The BMW X5 may be the best argument against the X6, as it offers the same core performance, luxury, and technology in a more useful form factor, though it's certainly no match for the X6's design-driven style.
The Porsche Cayenne offers even more impressive performance and handling, though as with the X6, the styling isn't for everyone.
Infiniti's QX70 is similarly sleek and modern, and while its six-cylinder versions pack even more power, the V-8 QX70 can't match the X6 xDrive50i's brawn, and the Infiniti doesn't offer as much high-end technology.
The Land Rover Range Rover Sport may be the X6's closest rival, but the British sport-SUV has a reputation for go-anywhere off-road ability and interior refinement that tops even the BMW.
