Crossover vehicles are perhaps the fastest growing segment of the automotive market. Typically, this marries an SUV body to a car-based platform. What if the reverse were true? Welcome to the new 2008 BMW X6. The X6 is officially labeled as a Sport Activity Coupe, a pretty sleek 4-door...

2008 Cadillac CTS
