BMW X6:

Unrestrained styling, raucous power, and surprising agility define the X6—although its fastback design limits rear-seat room and cargo space. A 300-hp 3.0-liter turbo inline-six with an eight-speed automatic can be ordered with either rear- or all-wheel drive. An audacious 445-hp 4.4-liter turbo V-8 is optional and comes only with all-wheel drive. The standard Driving Dynamics Control system allows for five distinct driving modes and an available air suspension provides even more fine-tuning.

Like the third-gen BMW X5 introduced for 2014, the new X6 rides the same 115.5-inch wheelbase as before. The fastback design has been updated with exterior character lines forecast by last year’s X4, but these look better-proportioned when stretched over the longer X6, which has gained 1.8 inches in overall length. The redesigned interior departs more dramatically from the past but not at all from recent BMW practice, with a prominent 10.2-inch screen taking center stage on the dash. It’s coupled to the latest version of iDrive, which has evolved from its initial status as a horrific burden right on through manageable to a genuinely useful system. This example was graced with a $1950 “Cognac Interior Design” package that blended brownish-red accents, black leather, and “Fineline Striped” wood trim into a plush cabin ambience. It was a little more old-school than some of our drivers might prefer, but as with most BMWs, there are many other choices (such as metal rather than wood trim). Remember when the cabin of a BMW was always a black hole with big daylight openings? That’s the old normal.

Reinvention for its own sake is not always fruitful, though. We still aren’t big fans of BMW’s latest thinking on the electronic automatic shift lever, with its side release button and complex array of choices that never seem to come naturally, but at least the X6 comes with paddles to manage manual gear selection.

The rear seat now has a seatbelt for a center occupant where the previous model was strictly a four-seater. BMW correctly calls this 4+1 seating, the center being uncomfortable for anyone but small children, who ought to be in a safety seat anyway. This back seat (the roofline precludes the cramped third row offered in the X5) folds in a 40/20/40 configuration, useful when cargo needs exceed the 26.6 cubic feet of space accessed through the hatch, which is now power-operated.
