When BMW launched the first generation of the X6 back in 2008, it single-handedly created the SUV coupe style. Others followed in its wake, like the Renault Arkana, the Porsche Cayenne Coupe and the Audi Q, but two generations on, the X6 remains the star of the segment. Its combination of butch SUV front end and a sleek, sloping roofline isn’t to everyone’s taste, but it proved popular enough to sell in large numbers, not to mention spawning a whole new class of luxury vehicle.

What we think about the BMW X6
The BMW X6 is the original crossover coupe. It’s the louder, flashier brother of the X5, sharing most of its mechanicals but packaging them inside an in-your-face grille and a slicked-back roof.
Impressive safety features
Rivals are more spacious
Less practical and more expensive than an M5
When you start out with a car that looks like the first-generation X6, there’s not much point in toning it down. The second and third generations made the car look even bolder and meaner, most recently adding some bling with 22-inch rims for its wheels, and lights in the front grille. Even the entry-level Sport trim is lavishly kitted out, with more and more bells and whistles available as you move up to the M Sport and M50i.
Our verdict of the Bmw X6
4.5 / 5 Gumtree rating
The BMW X6 might divide opinion, but it delivers many of the best things about both an SUV and a coupe in a seriously impressive, head-turning package.
