BMW X6 Buyers Guide

German automaker BMW surprised the industry with its unconventional luxury crossover, the BMW X6. The X6 melds the attributes of the SUV and the appearance of the coupe. This leaves brand enthusiasts with a high-performance, reliable vehicle with a somewhat outrageous exterior styling and a poor interior room. Still, the model remains a favorite among BMW enthusiasts, as it rates consistently high in performance, handling and overall security. The X6 is a great choice among those looking for an all-terrain vehicle, but may not be the best choice for those looking for a family-sized SUV.

Pros

The BMW X6 engines are a technological masterpiece, complementing the size of the vehicle and giving it an impressive flexibility. For a heavy vehicle, it is also very driveable because of a perfect torque, smooth rev and gearbox shift. The 3-litre twin-turbocharged diesel engine can produce up to 300bhp and accelerate to 62mph in 6 seconds. V8 engine options are also available, which can kick start the car to at least 62mph in 4.7 seconds. This gives the X6 a most impressive output, rivaling the top choices in its segment.

Getting the optional Active Steering for the BMW X6 means amazing agility and handling as well as a more controlled body roll. For a vehicle of its size, the X6 offers firm grip and traction even at higher speeds. The added firmness may give harshness, but it never overpowers. The Dynamic Performance Control also assists in cornering, making the X6 a great vehicle for urban use.

The dash layout is reminiscent of the X5: sensible and user-friendly. The vehicle also gives a commanding view, with great supportive seating. Rear visibility may be problematic, but BMW makes up for it with parking sensors. A central console is added for a sportier look.

Cons

Although the cabin has a generous room, the rest of the interior space feels cramped. The slope of the roofline does away with the all-needed headroom for both front and back seats. Shoulder room is more spacious since the BMW X6 is strictly a four-seater crossover, and legroom is adequate for all seats. The boot is passable, but the load lip is too high and the room leaves a lot to be desired for a bulky vehicle.

While some may laud the rambunctious exterior styling of the X6, opinion tends to be divided among BMW enthusiasts. Above the waistline, the vehicle looks elegant and curvaceous. Below the waistline, the X6 looks awkward with big rims and tall, rounded bumpers. But while the combination may be grotesque at first, the overall look is an acquired taste.

The BMW X6 may not be a crowd pleaser at first sight, but its astounding performance and remarkable handling are surprising for its size. This makes the X6 a clear favorite to BMW enthusiasts. Certain exterior styles and impracticalities in the interior space may mean that BMW has yet to improve on the model. But new owners will delight in its good attributes, which it pushes to the most extreme.

A brief on the BMW X6

The BMW X6 was first introduced in the market in 2008 as part of the 2009 model year. Marketed as what you would call a Sports Activity Coupe, the X6 combined characteristics of an SUV with the style of a coupé. This means the X6 featured all-weather capability, high ground clearance, large tires and wheels, and an all-wheel drive system with bold styling and the dramatic sloping roof that coupés are known for.

Related to the BMW X5, the X6 was the first of BMW’s vehicles to use the Dynamic Performance Control System. As a standard feature in the X6, it was made to complement the xDrive all-wheel drive system, also a standard on the X6. The first X6 models to be released came in two variants, both of which are powered by gasoline engines. Two diesel variants later on were released as well.

A hybrid version of the BMW X6 was unveiled in 2007 at the Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung Frankfurt. Called the BMW Concept X6 ActiveHybrid, this model utilizes a V8 Twin Turbo engine with High Precision injection to power the xDrive50i system, with a defining feature known as two-mode active transmission. Two-mode active transmission is an innovative technology that allows seamless control over how the internal combustion engine and electrical motors work together to move the vehicle.
