A Sports Activity Vehicle with seating for four, the 2010 BMW X6 is a four-door mashup of an SUV and a sports car. The X6 is available with a choice between two engines: a 300 hp 3.0L turbocharged six-cylinder and a 4.4L V8 engine boasting twin-turbos, which helps it produce 400 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque. Both versions are fitted with AWD and a six-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. New for 2010 is the addition of HD Radio as a standard feature.Read more Read less

Surprisingly, the X6 handles like a lower, lighter vehicle. Plus, it is stylish and very technologically advanced.
