2018 BMW X6 M

What We Like

Insanely powerful twin-turbo V8; sports-car handling in a crossover wrapper; impeccably trimmed cabin; class-leading technology features

What We Don't

Dubious value relative to the regular V8-powered X6; impractical interior for a 2.5-ton crossover; Apple CarPlay is optional; Android Auto is not available at all

What's New in the 2018 BMW X6 M?

The once-optional leather-covered dashboard is now standard. And the previously optional bundle of driver-assistance features has been discontinued, with its contents migrating into the Executive package.

Which X6 M is the Best?

It seems wrong to buy the X6 M and not spend the extra $6,000 or so for all the additional equipment in the Executive package.

2018 BMW X6 M vs the competition

2018 BMW X5 M -- Like the X6 M, only more practical.

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport SVR -- A supercharged V8 now generates 575 hp and the RRS SVR has a chassis to match. An amazing machine.

2018 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S Coupe -- Arguably nicer styling than the X6 M. Comes with 10 more horsepower than the X6 M.

2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo -- Although it's an older design, the Cayenne Turbo remains a true athlete in this segment.

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.
