2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 BMW X6

It can be a big decision to invest in a car, especially when you are considering top luxury models such as the BMM X6 or the Porsche 911. Smooth handling, exceptional ride quality, and stylish interior are some of the common features in these vehicles, but the 2018 Porsche 911 has something more to offer. This comparison will tell you why.

Design & Style

The 2018 BMW is a 5-seater car with plenty of space and comfort in the front seats. You get great visibility from the driver seat, but the headroom is quite limited at the back, making it difficult for adults. This SUV has a stylish interior that includes plenty of top-quality materials, giving it an upscale look.  But you will be cramped for room, unlike some rivals’ cabins.

The 2018 Porsche 911 is a 4-seater vehicle, where the rear seats can be used as extra cargo space. The front seats are quite nice with plenty of headroom and legroom for tall passengers. The sports seats are extremely supportive, and you will literally fall in love with the interiors. Porsche lives up to its reputation with even small trim pieces exhibiting elegance.

Technology & Safety

Some of the standard features in the 2018 BMW X6 include iDrive infotainment system, along with Apple CarPlay, USB port, Bluetooth, 9-speaker audio system, navigation and 10.2-inch touch screen. The base model doesn’t have a Wi-Fi hot spot, Android Auto or wireless charging. Standard safety features include lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, parking sensors, and a rearview camera.

The 2018 Porsche 911 comes equipped with the PCM infotainment system, which features Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Satellite Radio, Wi-Fi hot spot, USB port, and Bluetooth. Standard safety features include rear parking sensors and a rearview camera.


The 2018 BMW X6 comes with a 300 HP 6-cylinder turbocharged engine. A couple of V8s are also available. V6 has enough power to move the vehicle with ease, but you get more dynamic acceleration with the V8s.

The 911 gives you an option to choose from three 6-cylinder engines. Based on the trim, the base engine puts out 370-450 HP, providing sufficient power for day-to-day driving.

The Bottom Line

There’s no doubt both the models are tough competitors, but the BMW X6 doesn’t quite match the level of Porsche 911 in a few parameters. If you consider the overall requirement of any car buyer, 911 stands out as a great choice. Driving enthusiasts looking for more power should definitely go for 911 over BMW X6, given the set of excellent attributes it has to offer.
