2023 - Present

BMW refreshed the X6 lineup at the beginning of 2023, and along with the rest of the range, the M Competition version received a well-deserved update. The world of performance SUVs was no longer a territory where just one or two brands dominated the market. Apart from Porsche's Cayenne and its sibling Lamborghini Urus, Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Cadillac joined the bandwagon. We didn't mention Ferrari since the Italian brand didn't say that the Purosangue was an SUV (although it was). So, in this small circle of powerful vehicles, the white-and-blue badged automa...

2019 - 2023

With 600 hp under the hood, the X6 M tried to offer more performance for the SUV-lovers in a package that started the SUV-coupe trend. When the first X6 came on the market in 2007, it received as much appreciation as hate from its fans. But BMW didn't care too much about that and pushed forward, and soon, the customers started to like it. By 2019, the X6 was already at its third generation, and its main competitors tried to catch it. BMW offered a special exterior package for the X6 M.

2009 - 2014

What was it really? A hatchback? An SUV? A crossover? Well, all of them. A jacked-up hatchback with a very precise steering and ridiculous power. Sure, everything sounds nice, but it had to come with some compromises: limited cargo space and seating for four. Not a practical or versatile vehicle, but a great option for passionate drivers. The X6M was developed by the BMW’s Motorsport division and featured a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine that cranked out no less than 555 hp, and that’s 5 hp more than the engine on the Caynne Turbo S. Interesting for a crossover, the X6M...
