Hideous even by BMW standards, a serious pointless Dog of a car for WAGs.

A well thought out vehicle that's really good at doing nothing much except the school run I'd imagine. Seriously uncool (in the same way as the Evoque - though I must confess I've been in neither of them).

Arggghhhhhh!!!! WTF!?!?!? This vehicle (not a car) is so pointless it is unbelievable. It is one of pig fugliest things on the road as well, every aspect of it gross and out of proportion.

I can only imagineit is some kind of practical joke by BMW on their slavish clientele "let's see if there are any lackwits who will actually buy this pile of automotive excreta". "Yep, there are....."

Properly bad that one. That doesn't necessarily stop it being cool but it isn't.

I like it, I'd have one tomorrow, it's better than anything Alfa have for sale at the moment. Proportionally it looks good, it can be had with cracking engines and dymamics and has luxury in abundance.

Hate for hates sake isn't an admirable trait...

Appreciation of a car, dynamically or aesthetically, is subjective at best.

In terms of the X6 I would say it carries all the 'soft-roader' fail of the X5 into something which has even less practicality due to it's nice appeal. I know someone who bought his because 'I can get all my scuba gear into it'. The fact that went diving twice a year - whilst on holiday without his car - semed to have escaped him

4x4s usually end up in the Chelsea tractor hate queue at the best of times, more so when they are never off road, doubly so when they really don't do off road.

Meh!

No 2 on the Git list

Are you folding?

I have two simple tests for a "utility" vehicle:

1) Can I wash the inside out with a pressure washer?
2) Can I fit a full size sheet of plywood in the back?

This would fail both of those tests. LWB Defender for me. It is still wildly impractical as I shoved a 4.6 litre petrol engine in it.

I replied as usual before reading other opinions, then I look to see if I appear to be out of touch or not. Heavily polarised against this I see! I'm pleasantly surprised to be in the majority, and @ Sean, no, it's not just hate for hate's sake simply because it's a BMW, this is a piece of cack.

And I agree with Jim, I also despise the X6, but not because of the brand. BMW make several fantastic cars. This isn't one of them.

I never truly understood the idea behind this car,I really do like the X5 (did I say that out loud......) but the X6 is just niche marketing gone mad.

For me,seriously uncool......I don't understand either it or the people who have bought one.

I suppose it depends on how you define cool...

I define it as

None conforming
Risk taking
Dare to be different
Confident
