Overview

Which X6 is the Best?

We say go big with the V8-powered xDrive50i. Because anyone seriously considering an X6 isn't bothered by pricing or practicality issues.

How Much Does a 2018 BMW X6 Cost?

The 2018 BMW X6 is available in sDrive35i, xDrive35i and xDrive50i forms. A high-performance M version is reviewed separately.

The sDrive35i ($63,695) comes standard with the aforementioned trapezoidal tailpipes and rearview camera, plus 19-in alloy wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, LED fog lights and taillights, rain-sensing wipers, a sunroof, a power liftgate, parking sensors front and rear, self-dimming side mirrors, a digital instrument cluster, a power-adjustable steering wheel with paddle shifters, driver memory settings, adjustable drive settings (Driving Dynamics Control), heated/10-way power-adjustable front seats with driver's-side memory settings, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, wood trim, Bluetooth phone and audio, a USB port, HD Radio, an auxiliary audio input, a 9-speaker audio system, navigation and BMW's iDrive infotainment system with a 10.2-in touchscreen.

The xDrive35i ($65,995) is similarly equipped and adds all-wheel drive.

The xDrive50i ($78,445) upgrades to the V8 engine, a hands-free power tailgate with a foot sensor, keyless entry/ignition, 20-way multicontour front seats, quad-zone automatic climate control and a 16-speaker Harman Kardon Surround Sound system.

Some of the standard equipment in the xDrive50i can be optioned in the lower models. As usual, BMW has an extensive list of extras. These include LED headlights, an aero body kit, 20-in alloy wheels, sport-tuned adaptive dampers with a rear air suspension, a self-parking system, power-closing doors, a leather-covered dashboard, ceramic-trimmed controls, ventilated front seats, a sport steering wheel, a heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, wireless smartphone charging, Wi-Fi, a Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound system, a rear entertainment setup and advanced safety features (see the Safety section below).

Cargo space behind the rear seats measures 20.5 cu ft., a modest figure for a large crossover SUV. Folding down the 40/20/40-split rear seats opens that up to 53.9 cu ft., another humble measurement. The 4-door Volkswagen Golf compact hatchback has a similar amount of space.

Is the 2018 BMW X6 a Safe Car?

The X6 comes standard with stability control, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes (with automatic collision preparation) and six airbags (front, front side and full-length side curtain).

The optional Driver Assistance Plus package includes a head-up display, a 360-degree parking camera system, blind spot monitoring, lane-departure warning and forward-collision warning with low-speed automatic braking. Adding adaptive cruise control also brings the forward-collision warning system with driver alerts. Night vision with pedestrian detection is yet another optional feature.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have put the X6 through their crash-test programs yet.

Competition

2018 BMW X6 vs the competition

2018 BMW X5 -- It's only reasonable to compare the X6 to its sensible sibling, and the X5 has a lot going for it, including relatively generous cargo capacity and an optional third-row seat.

2018 Infiniti QX70 -- The QX has concept-car looks and optional V8 power in a crossover body style.

2018 Land Rover Range Rover Sport -- Offers a lot of Range Rover luxury appointments and equipment, but in a smaller package.

2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe -- A natural rival to the X6, with arguably more agreeable styling.

2018 Porsche Macan -- Smaller than the X6, but the driving experience is exceptional. Attractive interior as well.

Used Porsche Cayenne -- Used examples of the more powerful Cayenne variants are similar in price to a new X6. This combination of practicality and performance is rare.
