2022 BMW X6 vs. Its Competition

2022 BMW X6
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Don’t buy an X6 without at least considering its X5 sibling.

You’ll pay less and get more—more cargo and rear-seat space, that is.

If you must have a coupe-looking SUV, the Mercedes GLE Coupe offers softer looks and impressive power, too.

The Porsche Cayenne is marginally more practical, if not as boldly styled, and it’s a blast to drive.

Audi’s Q8 does the coupe-SUV thing better than most with more balanced styling and a little more interior space.

Don’t forget about the Jaguar F-Pace, a delightful crossover with a reasonable price tag.
