For The X6 offers strong performance across the board, a high-quality cabin and lots of standard equipment.
Against It doesn’t blend agility with ride comfort like its best rivals, and BMW’s own X5 offers everything the X6 does but with more space and practicality.
What Car? says
The BMW X6 is powerful, fun to drive and suitably luxurious, but unless you particularly like the X6’s looks, stick with the superior X5.

There are 8 BMW X6 versions available
Target Price team says:
There are several diesel and petrol versions of the X6, but we see little point going beyond the cheapest model, badged 30d. Its 3.0-litre diesel engine is easily powerful enough for most tastes, plus it's relatively economical. Sure, there are quicker and arguably more desirable models, but they don't make as much sense as the 30d.
All X6s come loaded with kit, including sat-nav, heated leather seats, a 20Gb hard drive, front and rear parking sensors, xenon headlights, large alloy wheels and metallic paint. We'd stick with entry-level (SE) trim, but we can see the appeal of M Sport versions, which get even bigger wheels, electrically adjustable sports seats and beefier styling.
BMW also offers so-called 'Pure Extravagance' packs for both the X6's exterior and interior, which add different wheel designs and exterior highlights, as well as finer cabin trims and leather finishes.
