The largest of BMW's so-called sports activity coupes, the X6, is actually a raised hatchback with four doors and the cargo capacity of a crossover. The 2019 BMW X6 does fit its official classification in one objective measure: performance.
What's New for 2019
The X6 is essentially unchanged. A total redesign is expected for 2020.
Choosing Your BMW X6
The X6 starts out with a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that sends 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. BMW's xDrive all-wheel-drive system is optional. Either way, six-cylinder models are EPA-rated 18 miles per gallon city, 24 mpg highway, and 20 combined.
xDrive50i models come standard with a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, which lays down 445 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque. Despite their relative ferocity and all-wheel drive, V8 models earn EPA ratings of 17/22/19 mpg (city/highway/combined). Every X6 gets an eight-speed automatic transmission.
With the rear seat folded, the X6 offers 59.7 cubic feet of cargo space, about the same as a compact crossover.
The 2019 BMW X6 lineup consists of two basic models (six-cylinder and V8), available with the customary BMW option designs, tiers, and packages:
The V8-powered xDrive50i delivers thrilling acceleration with hardly any loss in efficiency. Combine that with its standard all-wheel drive and enhanced features, and it emerges as the better value in the 2019 BMW X6 lineup – despite its higher price.
