The entire design of the BMW X6 is testament to the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy. The optimised, aerodynamic front apron and undercarriage feature innovative improvements that reduce air resistance and fuel consumption.
The integrated Air Curtain channels air through two vertical air inlets and along the front wheel arches. The accelerated air flow creates a kind of “curtain” on the outer side of the wheels. At the same time, the Air Breather channels the air flow at the front wheels. These innovative technologies reduce turbulence and air resistance, which in turn reduces fuel consumption.
While driving, the air vent control uses a sensor to continuously monitor whether the engine requires cooling and opens or closes the vents accordingly. The optimised aerodynamics and shortened engine warm-up period reduces fuel consumption.
