The X6’s considerable kerb appeal is perhaps best appreciated from the side. That’s because this SUV possesses a head-turning profile comprised of raised ride height, rising shoulder line and dramatic, swept-back roofline. Nevertheless, the vehicle is more than simply a handsome-looking straight-line performer. A five-door body, for instance, ensures that the X6 is also a practical proposition.
The BMW X6 is upholstered in stylish Vernasca leather, which is set off nicely by a Dark Aluminium Mesh trim. The vehicle offers plenty of room for five adults to travel in absolute comfort, even on the longest of journeys. Standard features include a split-folding rear bench. This allows the middle seat to fold flat, thus providing a larger-than-normal armrest. It also makes it easy to extend a minimum 580-litre boot capacity to as much as 1,530-litres.
The BMW X6’s standard-issue 3.0-litre 265bhp diesel engine produces 620Nm of torque, enabling the vehicle to go from 0-60mph in approximately 6.3 seconds and max out at 143mph. Offering an even quicker turn of pace is a 4.4-litre 530bhp petrol unit. This eight-cylinder turbo-charged engine delivers a peak torque of 750Nm, 0-60mph in little more than four seconds and a top speed of 155mph. All engine options are paired with eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, M-designated units additionally feature a Sport Plus driving mode, which provides extra oomph when it comes to the roar of the engine.
Onboard entertainment includes DAB radio, which provides a wide range of speech and music stations, each rendered in super-sharp sound quality. This and other audio functions can be operated by using a supplied remote control. As well as AUX, USB and iPod interfaces, the X6 comes with enhanced Bluetooth. Not only does this enable music streaming and hands-free telephony, it allows you to wirelessly charge your compatible mobile devices.
Servicing all of your route-planning requirements is a 12.3-inch touchscreen display, which provides access to automatically updated maps, real-time traffic updates, estimated time of arrival data and much more. It also makes a wide range of apps available, including BMW Connected, which highlights points of interest, among many other things.
