2011 BMW X6 xDrive50i 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl Turbo 8A)
The X6 is a sports car for car enthusiasts who want to drive the car 12 months per year, including snowy months, who need extra room for luggage. Really, fold down those two back seats and you have a two seater with LOADS of space.
You have that high seating and massive weight so your wife, bless her soul, isn't going to pee in her pants every time you pass a truck.
The car is fast, luxurious and for my needs, eminently practical.
The only con is fuel economy.
