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

2017 BMW X5 M -- Like the X6 M, only more practical.
2017 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR -- A supercharged V8 generates 550 hp, and the RRS SVR has a chassis to match. An amazing machine.
2017 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe -- Arguably nicer styling than the X6 M. Comes with 577 hp as well.
2017 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, but what a car. And it's an all-wheel-drive hatchback. A certified pre-owned (CPO) model might be available in the new X6 M's price bracket.
