Even in the quarter-mile run, the car is an average performer and won't pin any excitement meter around. The fastest car of the lot is 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GLC 63 which is just a tad bit quicker than the 2018 BMW X6 and does the 0-60 MPH run in 3.6 seconds. It also reaches the quarter-mile mark faster than the 2018 BMW X6.
The braking on the 2018 BMW X6 is quite sure-footed and has an evident bite to it. Although it is not the best braking car in its segment it's not the worst either.

During the emergency braking test, the car decelerates from 60MPH to zero in 119 feet which is a little slower than 2018 Jaguar F-PACE.
