So, you like SUVs but want a sporty look? The BMW X6 probably should be on your shopping list. As a coupe-like variant of the X5, the X6 boasts a dynamic appearance. This comes at the expense of cargo capacity, mind you. There are many powertrains to choose from, but the most impressive is easily the twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine that produces up to 617 horsepower in M Competition trim.
