In 2008, a car appeared on the streets that defied classification: Is it a coupe? Is it an SUV? It is neither, although it combines the best qualities of both classes of vehicle. It is a car for individualists who value performance in every aspect: With 6- and 8-cylinder engines, the BMW X6 has plenty of power, perfectly distributed by the Dynamic Performance Control. The DPC, in conjunction with the intelligent xDrive all-wheel drive, increases steering precision, directional stability, and traction because the drive torque can now be continuously distributed to each wheel individually.
The coupe-like sideline gives the car a flat appearance, while the narrow headlights, together with the kidney grille, visually widen the front: The BMW X6 is also a powerhouse in terms of design, a vehicle unlike any other.
In 2012, the appearance was subtly revised as part of a model upgrade. The parking light rings are now available in an LED look. A far greater number of equipment options are available: For example, the hood with powerdome.
