2023 BMW X6 Review: Prices, Specs, and Photos

2023 BMW X6 Review: Prices, Specs, and Photos

What kind of car is the 2023 BMW X6? What does it compare to?

The 2023 BMW X6 is nearly identical to the X5 mid-size luxury SUV, though it stands out thanks to its a fastback-style roofline. The X6 is pretty, it’s expensive, and it’s a pretty expensive contender in a competitive segment that includes the Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, Porsche Cayenne, and Jaguar F-Pace.

Is the 2023 BMW X6 a good SUV?

Yes. The 2023 X6 has handsome looks inside and out to complement its fantastic acceleration, though cargo capacity falls shy of the more practical and traditional X5. The X6 earns a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

What’s new with the 2023 BMW X6?

The X6 now gets standard synthetic leather upholstery, and there have been some minor changes to the features menu—most notably, gesture control is no longer available. This follows similar changes for 2022 that resulted in wireless device charging becoming an option rather than standard. Chalk it up to the chip shortage and other widespread industry supply issues.

If looks could kill, it would be an Uzi. The X6 makes an attractive mashup, shapely without being svelte or sleek. The inside boasts excellently executed BMW cues, with eye-catching swaths of wood or metallic trim dividing the cabin into digital space and leather-clad conversation lounge.

Performance escalates from merely impressive to unreal. Even the base model, fitted with a 335-hp turbocharged-6 and 8-speed auto transmission, charges off the line with a pace that defies its girth; cornering demonstrates grip and grace but also induces body lean. The X6 clears steep performance hurdles with the serious M50i model, featuring an adaptive air suspension, and it’s absolutely amazing in M trim made track-ready with the Competition package. That adds up to 617 hp, a 0-60 mph sprint well under four seconds, fantastic grip, and a ride that shifts from stiff to harsh depending on surface quality.

The X6 sheds a baker’s dozen in cubic feet of cargo capacity compared to the X5, but still earns good scores for utility. The roofline impacts back-seat space, too, forcing taller  rear passengers to slouch or lean.

There’s no crash data, but the X6 is similar to the X5, which earns solid scores in this area. The X6 gets standard blind-spot monitors and automatic emergency braking, with options such as a surround-view camera system and adaptive cruise control.

How much does the 2023 BMW X6 cost?

Pricing starts at $71,095 for the xDrive40i, which has all-wheel drive, synthetic leather upholstery, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. With Bowers & Wilkins audio, wireless smartphone charging, and 22-inch wheels, the X6 M Competition soars to $120,000.

Where is the 2023 BMW X6 made?

It’s produced in South Carolina.
