When I got the email letting me know my last-minute assignment for the week would be to go pick up, drive, shoot and review the 2015 BMW X6 xDrive50i , I had to slap myself in the face for a second. Why, you ask? Well, even if you didn’t ask, I’ll tell you. I’ve never driven an X6. I’ve driven all sorts of BMWs, almost all of them, I think - excep
Spartanburg, SC – While opinions on its styling may be divided, there's no denying that the X6 has been a sales success for BMW, with more than 260,000 sold since its 2008 debut.
It's a hard vehicle to pigeonhole, straddling the line between sports coupe and utility vehicle. But obviously the X6's incongruous looks strike a chord with those qu
“Behold! BMW’s answer to the question nobody asked!” said the blowhard, know-it-all as he climbed out of the X6 for the first time, seven years ago at the Canadian International Auto Show. Over the past seven years, that smart ass was shown that, on average, for a thousand Canadians every year, the X6 is the answer to “What high-fashion luxury mach
Welcome to Depreciation Appreciation! Every month, your buds at autoTRADER.ca dig up an instance of how depreciation can make for an extraordinary used-car deal.
This month, we’ll take a look at a great way to satisfy your lust for all-season-ready thrust and luxe on the relative cheap, with the BMW X6 M. Polarizing styling helped instantly def
Austin, TX - When I first spied the gen-one BMW X6 SAC (Sport Activity Coupe) at the 2007 Geneva Auto Show, I thought “Gawd, what hath BMW wrought?”
Turns out they wrought something pretty good. The X6 has been a consistent and profitable seller for BMW, and when the high-performance M division had its way with this swoopy Swabian for the 2010 m
Daimler takes the four-door SUV coupe fight to the BMW X6
It may have taken a few years for Mercedes-Benz to catch up, but the GLE is here to give the BMW X6 a run for its money.
While official details for Canada likely won't be divulged for months, here's what you can expect:
Release Date: Late 2015 as a 2016 model. Engines: Bet
Right now Audi has a full-size SUV (the Audi Q7 ) and they have a mid-size SUV (the Q5 ). What they don't have is a "stylish" SUV. One like the BMW X6 or the Range Rover Sport . According to Audi chairman Rubert Stadler, the company is quickly working to fix that. Described as their "flagship SUV", the all-new Q8 is intended to sit perched ato
FLORENCE – The rain poured down on us just after we finished washing the 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Quadrifoglio, about halfway down to Rome on our 1,600 km, four-day driving route in the Mille Miglia – Italy’s famed annual classic car caravan. It seemed terrible timing for us in our previously shiny new SUV, until we looked over at the wet and gloomy
Sometimes, a vehicle will leave me speechless. Usually, it’s because it is just such an amazing piece of engineering, while other times, it is due to the fact the vehicle is utter, utter crap. However, periodically a vehicle leaves me dumbfounded because I have no freakin’ clue what to make of it. This, ladies and gentleman, is one of those times.
BMW's roundel is not meant to represent a propeller. That bit of mythology comes from an illustration in an old ad, trumpeting the brand's aeronautical heritage.
However, the blue-and-white badge that sits on the nose of every BMW comes from an even earlier idea: a tribute to the coat of arms of Bavaria.
A century since the first BMW left the
Here's the first good look we've seen yet of the fastback crossover model that's been in the Porsche rumour mill for a couple of years.
These renderings by Dutch artist Remco Meulendijk come to our attention courtesy Australia's CarAdvice , and if a future Porsche crossover coupe didn't look pretty much exactly like this, we'd be plenty surpr
It's been a matter of months since the redesigned 2017 Audi Q5 compact crossover reached showrooms and already the German luxury automaker is looking seriously at further expanding its CUV line with a pair of future models that will likely be dubbed Q4 and Q6.
That's what Audi chair Rupert Stadler reportedly told Aussie mag CarAdvice in an i
In today's we-saw-that-coming files, Porsche CEO Oliver Blume has given the go-ahead for his company to begin building a four-door coupe variant of the Cayenne luxury SUV.
The news comes via the UK's Autocar , which says the couped Cayenne is set to go on sale in Britain in the fourth quarter of 2019 as a 2020 model, suggesting a production lau
The march of the swoopy SUVs continues unabated. While the idea of an all-wheel-drive utility vehicle compromised by a fastback roofline might seem a tenuous prospect to the left-brained among us, the growing popularity of these premium-branded niche vehicles suggests form over function wins in this corner. Mercedes-Benz showed the GLC Coupe at the
When you have two cars that are this similar and this nichey, there’s really no sense in covering every detail that we have already previewed in our BMW X6M First Drive . So we thought we would key in on what few differences there are between BMW’s more conventional X5M performance SUV (or SAV in BMW parlance, short for Sports Activity Vehicle) an
