Expert Rating

4.7 (Excellent)
15 City / 22 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.


The 2013 BMW X6 receives a refreshed front fascia, giving it a slightly different look than the 2012 model year. Also new to the 2013 model year are LED taillights and optional LED headlights. Other than those, the 2013 X6 is a carryover from the previous model year.

Two trim levels are available with the 2013 X6, including the xDrive35i and the xDrive50i. Both models come standard with all-wheel drive, and are ready to tackle adverse conditions and light off-road usage. The xDrive35i trim level is the base level and includes things like a 300-horsepower six-cylinder engine, leather interior, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Ash Wood Grain interior trim, and Dynamic Cruise Control. The xDrive50i is adds in a more powerful V-8 engine, navigation, and a small array of other luxury features to sweeten the pot for on-the-fence buyers.

In terms of competition, there is not much out there that can hang with the X6, but there are enough models to make things interesting. The X6’s closest competition comes from the Porsche Cayenne, which bases out with a 300-horsepower, V-6 engine that jets it to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, leather seating and a 5,952-pound towing capacity. Next up is the 2013 Land Rover Range Rover Sport, which features a 5.0-liter V-8 engine with 375 horsepower, full-time AWD and leather interior. Third on the competition list is the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, which comes with a 6.4-liter V-8 engine with 470 horsepower, a 5.1-second sprint to 60 mph and standard AWD. The final competitor is the INFINITI FX, which features a 325-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6 engine, a 6.2-second sprint to 60 mph and 24 mpg highway.

With all of this competition, the relative newcomer to the realm needs to bring something more to the table than the “BMW” name to draw in buyers.
