New is always fun.

And while the 2019 BMW X6 isn't exactly new in the grand scheme of BMW evolutions (it's kept largely the same look since it debuted, with minor updates, changes, and refreshes to keep it modern and cutting-edge) it's still one of the most standout vehicle styles on the market.

But it's not alone in the niche four-door crossover coupe market. Audi's all-new 2019 Q8 is stepping up to the plate and looking for an easy win. The 2019 BMW X6, though, isn't going to give up its crown that easily.
