As much as we love the German brand and as much as we respect the new BMW X6, we really can’t pinpoint where this so called “Sports Activity Coupe” fits. There is no doubt that the X6 is an impressive piece of work design and technical specs wise, but no matter how much BMW says that this is the new ‘sedan/crossover/coupe’ it still looks like an SUV and will still attract SUV buyers that most probably won’t buy it.
