Rolling out of the factory as a 2009 model, the BMW X6 measured in longer and wider than the BMW X5 and also sits lower to the ground. Initially, seating arrangements were made for four occupants. However, five seater variants were introduced in 2011.
Standard options of the X6 include adaptive xenon headlights, 19-inch alloys on each corner, tyre pressure monitor, run flat tyres, iDrive onboard computer system, power seats and unique sets of leather colour palettes from X5 models. Extra options include a flip-out rear TV screen, multi-zone digital A/C, memory seats, navigation, sunroof, larger 20-inch rims, roof rails, rear spoiler reverse camera and an automatic tailgate.
Stock safety features include front and side airbags, ABS, stability control and crash-activated front seat headrests.
X6M models debuted in 2010 and are aimed towards those who want an extra edge when driving as the vehicle not only looks more aggressive, it is rated higher than standard models. Notably, differences include the rear diffuser, front bumper, 20-inch rims along with different badges. Inside, are sports seats in the front rows, M badging, and optional carbon fibre trim.
In 2013, the BWM received a minor facelift to breath new life into the crossover. This touch up includes a lifted front up, revised lights and new materials inside.
Power is exclusively drawn from a 3.5-litre V6, or a 4.4-litre V8 turbocharged petrol motor powering all four of the vehicle's wheels. Only automatic transmissions are available petrol models controlled by a six-speed automatic with hybrids controlled by an eight-speed automatic instead. X6 M models are powered by the same engine. However, it’s slightly tuned for a higher output allowing the vehicle to hit 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds.
