The author also asks if the reader agrees. I do not.
Ed Ashby Feb 10, 2013
They are all shit and fucking ugly though
William Downs Feb 10, 2013
1st Jeffrey it clearly says in the article that these are there opinions, and every car they named was unnessecary for BMW,none of them filled a slot in there lineup that they needed filled, not to mention that every one they mentioned hasn't exactly been a sales hit for BMW either... So yes I would agree that they were unnecessary for bmw
Jeffrey Frank Feb 09, 2013
Daniel, in that case, these models are necessary. BMW is trying to grow the company by reaching new market segments. Smart move given all the competitors now in their traditional segments. They also need fuel economy cars for meeting CAFE standards.
Tyler Tarbox Feb 09, 2013
There are only 5?
Daniel Eads Feb 09, 2013
Jeff, he's talking about cars that don't uphold BMW's sporty/luxurious nature and have other cars in their segments that you could buy for as much or less. Cars that won't be missed.
Jeffrey Frank Feb 09, 2013
There are very few true needs in this world. Automobiles are not one of them. And therefore the entire basis for this article is the author's narrow minded opinion.
Tyler Ray DeFord Feb 09, 2013
@jeff. They are useless because there is no need for them.
Jeffrey Frank Feb 09, 2013
I'm not sure why the author gets to determine what serves a legitimate purpose or not. I'm pretty sure every one sold legitimizes a vehicles purpose. And surely BMW sees some purpose or else they wouldn't be produced.
Harrison Trapnell Feb 09, 2013
5 is just a fraction of all of them.
Patrick Schalk Feb 09, 2013
It's sad there's actually 5 of them.
Description: To this day, we simply can't find what attracts people to this model. Sure, the X6M is wicked fast and is the fastest BMW model on a straight-line. We respect that but the rest of the car itself ...

Sexiest bmw omfg
Dominic Keilty Feb 11, 2013
Jeremy Clarkson hates this car. The editors of CarBuzz hate this car. Everyone should hate this car.
Facundo Planas Martinelli Feb 11, 2013
X6M Repulsive?? Man thats so subjective!!! I love this truck!!!!!
Steven Wilson Feb 10, 2013
Perhaps I am in the minority, but I have always loved the X6 and would gladly park one in my garage (if I could afford it).
William Downs Feb 10, 2013
Id breather have a v8 power SUV then some stupid looking wagon.... Unless its the ctsv wagon, only wagon I would ever buy
William Downs Feb 10, 2013
Not really Jake, the x5 is actually pretty off road capable, but this thing is just stupid, it looks good yes, but sucks at everything it was designed to do
Jake Dula Feb 09, 2013
Uh... None of BMW's SUVs are worth spit off-road, why point that out on this one. I'm pretty sure that a BMW SUV being useless off-road is a given...
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
Yep suv for moms wagon for family man who is young at heart
Phil Johnson Feb 09, 2013
Ill take a wagon over an SUV every time.
Aaron Crisp Feb 09, 2013
I have a Suburban with a 502 big block, I think she's sexy.
Stephen Tyler Learn Feb 09, 2013
@elias you can not use the word sexy to accurately describe any suv
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
I would buy one if I were halfway through a bottle of Absinthe at the time of purchase. But then I would be very very very drunk and slightly high.
Isaac Ferrari Feb 09, 2013
Thank you. Such a useless and hideous car
Elias Harb Feb 09, 2013
Because suv's are sexier than a wagon
Nick Sti Feb 09, 2013
*rarely used.... Damn auto correct
Nick Sti Feb 09, 2013
Agreed. SUV's are early used off road. Why don't people but a Volvo wagon or something of they want to be able to carry 7 passengers?
Tyler Ray DeFord Feb 09, 2013
It is pointless, ugly and useless. For 60 grand you can get a kitted out explorer and save money. Sports activity vehicles are just dumb.
Ryan Patrick Clauson Feb 09, 2013
Most useless bmw
Patrick Joseph Feb 09, 2013
I can understand that some might not like it. But calling it unnecessary I'm not sure about that. Personally I wouldn't buy one. But I can understand why some do. It looks the part. It's imposing. And it's quite nice to drive honestly.
Bala Uncc Feb 09, 2013
Honestly it had better passenger space than Infiniti fx35 when I tried. I see lots of fx35 on the road so I am not surprised to x6
Mohammed Suhail Jamil Feb 09, 2013
I'd buy one? It's amazing!!
Saqar Khudairy Feb 09, 2013
People like it because 1- it's unique 2- impracticality is considered cool 3- looks like coupe 4- they need SUV for weather but not space. I have a kid in my school whose mom drive the x6m, he isn't complaining
Sam McCracken Jul 15, 2013
don't like the X6 at all
Oliver McIntosh Feb 22, 2013
This is one badass car.
Brandon Willis Feb 11, 2013
No, just no.
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
I love this thing. Monster ish like.
Ed Ashby Feb 10, 2013
I can't believe someone said "good looking car!". Nick, I too see these all the time, but only briefly as my windscreen is then obscured with vomit, and my eyes with tears of laughter at the egotist driver that thought it was a good buy for his image
Jacob Burford Feb 09, 2013
@Dylan And BMW has a great reliability record and is known for cheap repairs too right! This is pointless as an SUV! Range Rover and a lot of other SUVs over this any day!
Dylan Bruder Feb 09, 2013
And the rover will cost you more in repair bills too
Nick Rios Feb 09, 2013
I see these all the time. Real good looking car. And yes you have to have money to drive this, yes they don't care what you think.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
So it cant go off-road well it cant carry a billion things in the back it cant transport a large number of people. But it can drive fast for its size
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
To wyatt and nick get diesel for miles but petrol for smile! Lol.
Adam Thomson Feb 09, 2013
You cant even use it on the terrain!
Wyatt Gordon Feb 09, 2013
I want a Range Rover Sport, preferably the Sport Autobiography
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
I would buy it, just so I could crash it.
Christian Billman Feb 09, 2013
While I hate everyone of these, I agree with David. If people buy it and BMW makes money then the market is saying its necessary. I just hope they stop selling XD
Kyle Kloewer Feb 09, 2013
So shitty
David Justice Feb 09, 2013
If I'm BMW, making a profit because people are buying, how is this unnecessary?
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
Pointless! Get range rover instead! Far sexier!
Dylan Gomes Feb 09, 2013
three words, waste of money
Joe Talerico Feb 09, 2013
Like the color, that's about it.
Bala Uncc Feb 09, 2013
Looks nice
Steven Luginsland Feb 09, 2013
So ugly...
Justin Harris Feb 09, 2013
I bet it's actually sliding backwards in that picture lol (top gear x6 reference)

I like it
Dustin McClelland Feb 10, 2013
Why spend $58k on this horrible thing when you can get an equally awful Accord Crosstour for $35k? *barf*
Steven Luginsland Feb 10, 2013
This is one BMW not to be seen in.
Jake Dula Feb 09, 2013
Saw one of these in person once... I was hospitalized for several days afterward. Turns out the 5-series GT is useful if u want ur stomach turned inside out.
Guo-Sheng Huang Feb 09, 2013
So gross...
Jommel Marcella Feb 09, 2013
Wow.
Patrick Joseph Feb 09, 2013
You have to be a massive tool to buy that. Unjustifiable.
Bala Uncc Feb 09, 2013
Ok I agree with this one
Brandon Willis Feb 11, 2013
I looks like my brother took a shit and crafted this.
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
I would consider a Flex over this.
Jose Fernando Vega Feb 10, 2013
Ugly & useless
Jacob Burford Feb 09, 2013
Ah! My eyes!
Dylan Bruder Feb 09, 2013
I hate these one of my least favorite new cars period
Adenis KalashNikov Ruci Feb 09, 2013
Well these were only made to be out into the GT market at an early stage. You never know, BMW could've decided to make a ferrari thrashing supercar in the GT spec by making this its predecessor
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
I like these just cant seem to find a reason to have one over the saloon or touring
Ryan Spencer Feb 09, 2013
I HATE these...
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
Saw one of these last night, and it reminded my of how pretty a goiter is in comparison.
Rodrigo Allen Feb 09, 2013
I actually love it. I'll admit, it looks hideous in this picture, but if you see it in real life you might actually like it. My mom has one.
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
Noooo! Why do I have to c that!
Steven Luginsland Feb 09, 2013
So ugly...
Ty Schuring Feb 09, 2013
Ahhhh my eyes!
Isaac Taylor Feb 11, 2013
I'm a huge BMW fan but this is the ugliest they ever made
Emil Klossie Kleijsen Feb 11, 2013
The back looks great, at least in real life, in this pic it looks horribke
Ryan Sansossio Feb 10, 2013
Iiiii kinda like it
Jacob Burford Feb 09, 2013
Oh dear! Just throw this out and give us a wagon!
Dylan Bruder Feb 09, 2013
Sad part is there's already a wagon no need for this
Rakesh Senthivelan Feb 09, 2013
Dat ass!
Ryan Spencer Feb 09, 2013
My eyes!
Rodrigo Allen Feb 09, 2013
It looks much better in black as well
Kyle Kloewer Feb 09, 2013
Actually not that bad. Just not necessary
Nick Sti Feb 09, 2013
Why?! Just make a wagon!
Malachi Monteiro Feb 09, 2013
This makes me like the Panamera, that is how bad this thing is.
Gavin Jaunky Feb 09, 2013
Fugly
Bala Uncc Feb 09, 2013
3 series GT joins the club too
Description: It costs nearly $31,000 and something as simple and cheaper like the Nissan Juke could equally do the job. But no, sometimes someone must have a BMW at any cost. The X1 fits into that category. While ...

Lol @ tyler
Tyler Tarbox Feb 09, 2013
Only reason you buy this is so people think you have more money than you actually do
Christopher Bohdjelian Feb 09, 2013
I disagree its a bmw much cheaper than a 328i with the same engine. And has the space of a 528i, whats not to like.
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
Only reason these are made, is because mom needed something to take the kids to soccer practice in so she could fit in better with the other soccer moms, because she couldn't afford the X5 or an X3 for that matter.
Chris Friend Feb 09, 2013
A horrible contender to the GLK
Carlos Ernesto Garcia Feb 09, 2013
Why can't someone just be buying the car because they love the interior, the way it drives, and they want it for the snow. (With X drive)
Tyler Ray DeFord Feb 09, 2013
If that's not buying a car for the badge IDK what is
Jason Johnson Feb 09, 2013
I've driven this and its a nice car. Plenty of room, even compared to the ford explorer.
Kyle McCullough Feb 09, 2013
I actually quite like these.
Mark Fei Ling Feb 09, 2013
This one is horrible
Brandon Willis Feb 11, 2013
Nothing against this car. I like this one.
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
Not bad
Jose Fernando Vega Feb 10, 2013
In Europe do you find 6 speed manual. Big difference to drive. Sorry for American customer.because is no available
Tim Belton Feb 10, 2013
Great looking
Ed Ashby Feb 10, 2013
Not as ugly as an X3, but still demanding powerful disrespect to the owner
Jacob Burford Feb 09, 2013
The problem with this is practicality! What's the point of getting an unpractical SUV! Might as well get 3-Series wagon, although BMW decides to give us this GT crap instead!
Stas Allen Feb 09, 2013
Car Buzz. That is your opinion. Not mine.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
It does look nice and all but you can get a 3 series in awd for the snow. So yes it is unnecessary
Max Laino Feb 09, 2013
X1 are awesome and they look great too
Matt Piccolo Feb 09, 2013
I really like these
Aaron Crisp Feb 09, 2013
As long as it's AWD I understand the need for it. Good for snow/rain. I'd still rather have a 3 series though.
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
3 series sedan on steroids! Ha ha!
Jay Kolvenbag Feb 09, 2013
Unlike the rest this one isn't unnecessary, I don't like the proportions though
Jesse Williams Feb 09, 2013
Looks good from this angle.
Farshad Broumand Feb 09, 2013
Lol this is for people who own a 328 and love it but need to have a car that can get them to the office even on snowy days.... That's me and am thinking about get either this or the x3... But x1 actually drives really nice, just like the 3series...
Patrick Joseph Feb 09, 2013
It's quite a crappy thing to buy actually. Even the crappy x3 isn't as crappy.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov Feb 09, 2013
The X1 is quite nice looking actually.
Garrett Bentz Jul 11, 2013
inion
Garrett Bentz Jul 11, 2013
There is actually space for the upcoming 3 series GT in the US market in my op
Kyle Kloewer Feb 09, 2013
Didn't even know there was an X1 haha
Jesse Williams Feb 09, 2013
This is actually not that bad. Not into those rear lights though, they make the car look bad.

Well, since the 5-series GT is doing so well... XD (that was sarcasm, for the poor idiots who won't be able to figure that one out)
Kevin Lavier Feb 09, 2013
I have to admit it looks a lot better than the 5 series gt
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
The windows is the biggest issue.
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
This was a mistake at the drawing board. This car is just nasty looking. Yucks.
Steven Luginsland Feb 10, 2013
The front is all right but the rest of the car sucks.
Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
Shows people will buy anything with dat badge
Dale Fredriks Feb 09, 2013
That small grille behind the front wheel is absolutely horrid in every way. For that matter, so is the whole car.
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
Current BMW range is 3 series coupe or wagon only! The rest is ugly, expensive and unreliable!
Brandon Willis Feb 11, 2013
Why BMW? Why?
Walter Alexander Thomas Feb 11, 2013
This is very very hideous. I would take a Fusion or Accord with pride.
Jacob Burford Feb 09, 2013
Give me the wagon please!!!!!!
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
I want to spend money on a BMW that looks like an old Hyundai Accent.
Marc E Feb 09, 2013
If I have to have a sedan slash hatchback I would prefer the Porsche panamera, the new 3 series Gt is awful looking at the back.
Nick Sti Feb 09, 2013
I'd rather have an S4 wagon plz
Philip Sweeney Feb 09, 2013
Tail lights to big and sheet metal above rear wheels, just too...fat?
Connor Garrett Koerbitz Feb 09, 2013
I actually like this and most the cars on this list lol
Patrick Schalk Feb 09, 2013
That rear end is so ugly. Either make it a legit wagon or sedan. This middle ground crap looks awful.
Anthony Perugini Feb 09, 2013
I dont see a problem with this

What they forgot to put up is the 1m because its power is only 30 more HP Than the standard 1 seres also it is too expensive M most dumb car ever and hopely the last
Jake Dula Feb 09, 2013
STOP WITH THE BLEEDING EVS AND HYBRIDS ALREADY!!!!! THEY'RE ALL USELESS OVERPRICED CRAP! JUST STOP IT! Sorry people, may have lost it just a TINY bit there. XD
Stas Allen Feb 09, 2013
If people don't invest in electric vehicles, how do you expect for them to get any better?
Luke Purdy Feb 09, 2013
Wait no I'm going to stop here car buzz. There is nothing wrong with the i3, it is a great concept and I'm sure it will improve the development of future BMW models.
Ashton Summers Feb 09, 2013
The i in i3 makes you look so much smarter, Eco friendly, philanthropic, progressive, innovative, saver of baby seal, protector of redwood pine needles, activist for the legalization of same sex marriage for the Congo chimpanzee, all roled into one.
Chris Friend Feb 09, 2013
I disagree with this one.
Ryan Lopez Feb 09, 2013

angry birds* pig

Thankfully this is still just a concept!
Stas Allen Feb 09, 2013

Cian Mac Gearailt Feb 09, 2013
I dont see the whole thing of making a EV that is ultra small and looks all weird just to stand out
James Salaba Feb 09, 2013
Angry pig? That's cool!
Guo-Sheng Huang Feb 09, 2013
Looks like an angry pig.
Dale Schroeder Feb 09, 2013
The front end looks like a bulldog's face. I think I like it just for that alone.

Small...
Sahm Jafari Feb 09, 2013

Coupe? The regular city car is ugly-looking enough.
Chris Gaines Feb 10, 2013
actual wheels will be like 13 inches haha
Sam Oglesby Feb 10, 2013
A full length window looks kinda weird
Brandon Davidson Feb 09, 2013
I like the rims...but that's it
Kasey Cook Feb 09, 2013
Look how skinny that front tire is!! Cool looking but cars like this should only be sold in huge over populated cities where they would be useful.
