Review

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 petrol engine line-up opens with the xDrive40i, which we have yet to sample in the X6, but proved impressive in the closely-related BMW X5.
