Absurdly powerful twin-turbo V8; sports-car handling in a crossover wrapper; impeccably trimmed cabin; class-leading technology features
Dubious value relative to the regular V8-powered X6; impractical interior for a 2.5-ton crossover
Enhanced USB and Bluetooth features are now standard, providing voice control for contacts and music, mobile office functions (text, email, calendar, tasks and voice memos) and the ability to sync up a second smartphone. See the 2016 BMW X6 M models for sale near you

The 2016 BMW X6 M ($103,195) comes as one well-appointed model.
Standard features include 21-inch staggered-width wheels with high-performance tires, adaptive sport-tuned suspension dampers, a rear air suspension, quad tail pipes, an M body kit, adaptive auto-leveling xenon headlights with cornering lights, LED fog lights/taillights, a panoramic sunroof, roof rails, a power lift gate with hands-free operation (via a foot sensor in the bumper), front and rear parking sensors, a performance-themed instrument cluster with a high-resolution color driver information center, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry/ignition, rain-sensing wipers, hill-descent control, a power adjustable steering wheel with paddle shifters, adjustable drive settings (through the Driving Dynamics Control system), 18-way heated front sport seats with driver and front-passenger memory settings, extended leather upholstery, quad-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth phone and audio, a USB port, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio system and BMW's iDrive infotainment system with a widescreen 10.2-in display, satellite radio/HD Radio, navigation and hard-drive MP3 storage.
The optional Executive package adds adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams, soft-closing doors, BMW's Concierge Services (providing live assistance for making dinner reservations, finding nearby places of interest, etc.), a heated steering wheel, a head-up display, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and rear sunshades.
Additional options include 20-in wheels, a self-parking system, a rear-seat entertainment system with twin 9.2-in screens and a 16-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system. There's also a Driver Assistance Plus package with advanced safety features (see the Safety section below).
Cargo capacity is modest, with 19.3 cu ft. behind the rear seats and 53.9 cu ft. with those seats folded down. That's essentially hatchback territory, but to be fair, the X6's styling makes it more of a hatchback than a crossover. Most other vehicles in the 5,200-lb weight class offer considerably more versatility.

2016 BMW X5 M -- This model is like the X6 M, but it's more practical.
2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR -- The SVR has a chassis to match its supercharged V8, which generates 550 hp. This is an amazing machine.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE63 S Coupe -- The revamped and renamed crossover (formerly known as the M-Class) now has a 4-door coupe version coming out of the high-performance AMG stable, with 577 hp to play with.
2016 Porsche Cayenne Turbo -- The Cayenne Turbo remains a true athlete in this segment, although it's an older design.
Used Porsche Panamera Turbo -- The Panamera Turbo is a car, as opposed to a crossover. A new one is seriously expensive, but a certified pre-owned model might be available in the X6 M's price range.
