The New BMW X6 Delivers

The latest offering from the BMW X collection excels in extravagance, power and athleticism – IT’S the complete package.

BMW is synonymous with precision and beauty when it comes to both the design and performance of their motor creations. Always pushing the envelope to improve on previous models, the BMW X6 does not fail to deliver on this mantra  Visually, the gregarious design seamlessly balances the vehemence and versatility of what one would expect of a BMW X model, with the characteristic sporting grace of their coupés. Not only does one find substantial internal space on offer, but a lavish layout of aesthetic beauty, complete with model-specific sport features and equipment packages. A real beauty to behold. The first-class accents of both the interior and exterior of the vehicle are no less than stunning. It takes a few minutes of admiration to truly absorb the artistry of this creation. The M Sport package adds attention-grabbing elements which assist in setting the BMW X6 apart from would be rivals.

The new BMW X6 showcases an array of exclusive equipment, openly displaying the evolution from its predecessor. These include: 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission with steering wheel shift paddles, 19-inch light-alloy wheels, automatic tailgate operation, bi-xenon headlights, as well as two-zone climate control and auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The stylish leather trim cannot be forgotten either.

The enhancement to functionality needs to be appreciated. The 40: 20: 40 split/folding rear seat backrests allows the load compartment capacity to increase by 75 litres on the previous model, taking it from 580 litres to as much as 1,525 litres. A massive upgrade! Now for what motor enthusiasts want to hear. More power! And with great power comes great response ability…. or at least it should. The creators at BMW understand this concept and have applied it poetically, infusing brutish strength with control and driving comfort.

So what do these supped up engines have to offer? Nothing less than the latest generation V8, developing 450 hp for the BMW X6 xDrive50i with the BMW X6 xDrive35i 306 hp. Impressive. What is even more impressive is the ability of the BMW TwinPower Turbo technology saving the consumer an average of 22% when it comes to fuel consumption. The standard-fitted eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission, extensive BMW EfficientDynamics technology, weightsaving optimisations and enhanced aerodynamics all play their part in ensuring a cost-effective driving experience. So how could one improve on the package so far? Include a standard (and permanently active) intelligent all-wheeldrive system, of course. With BMW xDrive, not only is traction performance optimised, but so too is directional stability and cornering dynamics, helping to keep you safely on the road. Good to know.

Want more? Dynamic Performance Control combined with Dynamic Drive active roll stabilisation as part of the Dynamic adaptive suspension package, helps you to effectively handle this sporty inclusion to the BMW X family. Air suspension at the rear axle and Dynamic Damper Control enhances comfort and is included in both the Comfort adaptive suspension package and Adaptive M suspension (part of the M Sport package). Modified, sports-oriented suspension tuning is also included in this line-up of substantial offerings.In truth, another page could be written, dedicated solely to further features and offerings of this luxurious motor vehicle. It is hard to put on paper, what needs to be experienced in person, for a real understanding of what the designers at BMW have achieved this time round. Perhaps a test drive is the logical next step in your introduction to the new BMW X6. I seriously doubt anyone would be disappointed.
