Today's NYT review of X6

I don't always agree with mass-market automotive reviews, but it's pretty hard to argue with the summation:

BMW says the X6 is a hot commodity, with dealers already snapping up the entire 2008 production run. So, obviously, there are people out there who see themselves on the vanguard of vehicular chic, defying convention by stepping boldly into the realm of the $50,000 jacked-up four-door coupe.

But other BMW buyers are even more radical than the X6 customer, trendsetters who know they can walk right past that X6 in the showroom and drive away in an even cooler, more futuristic vehicle. One thatís almost a second faster to 60 m.p.h., gets 3 more m.p.g., weighs 800 pounds less and carries more people and cargo.

Itís called the 535xi Sports Wagon. It is a station wagon, pure and simple, and itís the real step forward in the crossover evolution.
