The BMW X6 isn’t for everybody. And that’s exactly what the Munich-based automaker had in mind when it launched the first X6 Sports Activity Coupe in 2008. Now in its second generation, the South Carolina-built X6 is designed to appeal to buyers who want the high-riding driving position and big-wheel look of an SUV blended with the sloping rear roof and shapely profile of a coupe.
Although it has attributes of all three body styles, the five-door X6 is neither a wagon, a hatchback coupe, nor an SUV. It’s something altogether different. Three models are offered for 2018: the rear-wheel drive $63,695 sDrive35i, the all-wheel drive $65,995 xDrive35i, and the all-wheel drive $78,445 xDrive50i (prices include a $995 destination charge). A 300-horsepower turbo six-cylinder powers the sDrive and xDrive35i models, while a 445-hp twin-turbo V8 is under the hood of the xDrive50i.
