Its styling may divide opinion but the BMW X6 is actually a very well-rounded coupe SUV. Not only is it available with a range of truly fantastic engines, but it’s also one of the most entertaining cars in the class to drive, making the Mercedes GLE Coupe and Range Rover Velar feel sloppy in comparison. Meanwhile, the interior is as easy to use as it is beautifully built, and there’s plenty of space, despite those sweeping exterior lines. Factor in reasonable running costs and a competitive price tag and the X6 truly is one of the most alluring coupe SUVs currently on sale.

Although Sport is the entry-level trim, it's far from sparsely equipped. As standard you get 19in alloy wheels, adaptive LED headlights, a parking assistant, rain-sensitive wipers, an automatic tailgate, leather upholstery, electrically adjustable front sport seats, BMW’s 12.3 in iDrive infotainment system, a 12.3in digital instrument display and a DAB radio.

The six-cylinder 3.0-litre diesel engine of the xDrive30d is our pick of the range. It’s beautifully smooth, provides tonnes of punch low down in the rev range and is noticeably more responsive than the equivalent Audi Q8 50 TDI. It’s so good in fact, that we don’t think you need to step up to the more expensive xDrive40d – despite having an extra 54bhp the 40d doesn’t feel significantly quicker.
