BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Probably the best review so far.

Doesnt the Urus run 2.9 secs 0-60mph and a 11.2qtr mile stock? Closer to a new M5 than an X6.

I believe so, but when you factor in cost and the ability to tune the X6M, well, the Urus should watch out. Nothing worse than getting beat by a cheaper car!

I've been blessed to have owned numerous M cars, including F86. Nice review. But I cannot spend 100k on a car that doesn't have a nice ass. It's subjective, but for me a deal breaker. Glad to see they got rid of the curved lines on the rear quarter!

Trust me, no one buying an Urus cares about an X6M or if it's faster.

X6M is simply a better car...

If you want something screaming, drawing attention, sure Urus is better, but other than that, I'll take X5M or X6M any day...

Would like to see some track numbers for X6M and compare them with Urus.

It might well be a better car, but people who buy a Lambo usually want a Lambo for the reasons you mentioned.

Traditional wisdom would tell us thats true, but you'd be surprised. The Urus does attack a different market then their traditional halo cars. I personally know of someone who was originally hooked on ordering a Urus and instead held off for the F96. For half the price, it offers almost just as much value, minus the badge of course! With that said, I doubt the Urus will see a decline in sales.

Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I disagree with his comments about the rear taillights being designed well and the two reflectors in the rear bumper looking good. I hated it on the M2 as well. I think it really looks cheap.

Always love his reviews. So we'll done, and very knowledgeable. The X6M not so much, but nice specs at least...:
