What used BMW X6 estate will I get for my budget?
You can buy a second-generation X6 for around £22,000, at the time of writing. This would be for a 2014 car with an above average mileage for the year and a full service history. If you up this to £28,000, you should find 2016 cars in similar condition but with an average mileage, bought from an independent or franchised dealer. Around £30,000 to £35,000 gets you a neat 2018-2019 car with all the trimmings from a BMW dealer.

How much does it cost to run a BMW X6 estate?
The most economical version, the xDrive30d has a combined NEDC fuel consumption figure of 47.1mpg, which is pretty good for something so large, heavy and quick. However, you’re unlikely to see anything like this in real-world conditions. The xDrive40d gets 45.6mpg and the xDrive M50d 42.8mpg. The petrol-engined xDrive50i M Sport - predictably - gets a rather poor 29.1mpg, while the X6 M is even worse at 25.4mpg.
To keep tax bills low, go for a 30d since that 'only' emits 157g/km, while the 40d puts out a little more at 163g/km. The worst diesel is the M50d at 174g/km, but everything with a petrol engine is significantly worse with numbers starting with a '2'. Kicking things off is the 50i with emissions of 225g/km, but it's the X6M that'll hurt your wallet the most because it produces 258g/km.
Car tax (VED)
Tax for most versions will be costly due to high CO2 emissions if it's registered before April 2017. Anything after this date will be charged a flat rate fee along with an extra charge on top of the normal tax rate for five years after the second year of registration because it cost more than £40,000 when new.

Servicing and insurance
Insurance groups range from a high 42 to a higher 47. Servicing will be expensive at a BMW main dealers, but service plans are available to help spread the cost.
