BMW TwinPower Turbo V8 engine in the BMW X6 xDrive50i.
In the BMW X6 xDrive50i, a brief touch of the accelerator is enough to unleash the power of the 8-cylinder petrol engine. On every bend, you can feel the close contact with the road, with the throaty sound of the eight cylinders ringing in your ears each time you put your foot down.
The BMW TwinPower Turbo 8-cylinder engine with two turbochargers, twin VANOS and High-Precision Injection, an outstanding 300 kW (407 hp) and a maximum torque of 600 Nm accelerates the BMW X6 xDrive50i from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.4 seconds. In view of this output, the V8 petrol engine fuel consumption is surprisingly modest – with an average of 12.5 l/100 km and combined CO2 emissions of 292 g/km. The 8-speed sports automatic transmission keeps the engine in the optimum rev range, offering near-imperceptible gear changes and excellent comfort.
Centrally fitted exhaust turbochargers in the V of the cylinder banks make for an ultra-compact design, a low weight − and a unique level of agility.
