2016 BMW X6

Rating 67/100 Background You could put together a pretty good argument that the BMW X6 is the car that killed the "U" in SUV. Once upon a time, all sport-utility vehicles were boxy-looking and were meant for hauling people and cargo. But the X6, which is now in its second generation after last year’s full …

Rating 60/100 Background The 2015 Infiniti QX60 is a three-row luxury crossover that puts families first. Based on the versatile Nissan Pathfinder, the QX60 has plenty of room for adults or growing children in all three rows, and the second-row seats slide and recline to enhance passenger comfort. Moreover, we’ve found the drive to be …

2015 BMW X6

Rating 58/100 Background Practicality is central to the mission of most crossover SUVs; after all, "utility" is part of the name. At the other end of the spectrum, you have coupes, which generally forego everyday usefulness for swoopy styling and sporty handling. Trying to marry the two, as BMW does with the 2015 X6, can …

Rating 77/100 Background No, your eyes are not deceiving you: The 2014 Infiniti QX60 looks exactly the same as last year’s JX35, which itself was a new addition to the company’s lineup. That’s because the JX and QX60 are the same car other than some minor feature shuffling and the debut of a hybrid version. …

Rating 60/100 Background BMW labels its 2014 X6 a "sport activity coupe." And indeed, sleek "coupelike" styling is all the rage lately. But while this design can be extraordinary on a sedan, the results are less satisfying when applied to an SUV like the X6. If you’re interested in the 2014 BMW X6, it shouldn’t …

Rating 72/100 Background We can only assume that you’re reading this because something about the 2013 BMW X6 appeals to you on an emotional level. Maybe it’s the unique styling. Perhaps it’s the idea of a sporty-handling SUV. Or maybe you’re just looking to one-up the neighbors and their X5. Whatever the reason may be, …

Rating 78/100 Background Sleek "coupelike" styling is all the rage lately. Four-door sedans with downwardly sweeping roof lines started it off a few years back, and the coupe concept now has been adopted by crossover SUVs, of which the BMW X6 is a prime example. From the beltline down, the 2012 BMW X6 has all …

Rating 70/100 Background Think of the 2010 BMW X6 as one of those hybrid mythical creatures — the Minotaur, a griffin or a mermaid — that combines several elements to make up one unique beast. You could say it’s part SUV, part hatchback and part coupe. Actually, BMW defines the X6 as a “Sports Activity …

Rating 63/100 Background Just because something’s different doesn’t necessarily make it better. Or does it? When BMW introduced the X6 last year, that question, along with, “Do we really need something like this?” sprang forth. With BMW covering the small and midsize crossover SUV market with the X3 and X5, the X6 finds itself in …

Rating 82/100 Background In the past, BMW didn’t exactly rush in to follow the trend toward larger, more family-friendly vehicles. Like a fashionable latecomer to a cocktail party, the German automaker launched the BMW X5 a few years into the SUV craze. But when the tide turned and the market clamored for scaled-down utility, BMW …

The trend at this year’s New York Auto Show was SUVs. After all, with them being the most popular automotive segment, manufacturers want to take full advantage of this growing marketplace. Due to this, many manufacturers like Chevrolet are diversifying their product lines. Their thinking is by offering more packages and trends for their existing …

2017 Audi Q3

Luxury manufacturers have been scrambling to compete with their non-luxury counterparts. In this regard, it isn’t uncommon for you to find compact luxury SUVs priced in the low $30,000s, which can be a steal when you factor in style, reliability, quality of construction, and performance. The 2017 Audi Q3 is one of the models signifying …
