Coupe, sedan, SUV, Crossover – introduced for the 2008 model year, the X6 is unlike any other BMW that’s gone before. Stylish, sporty, athletic and unique are additional terms that come readily to mind after a spin in the German automaker’s latest offering. Billed as the world’s first Sports Activity Coupe, the X6 redefines the very notion of a coupe – five doors, four sculpted seats, a higher ride and plenty of cargo space. It defies coupe conventions in one head-turning look, combining coupe agility and SAV versatility, taking the coupe to the next level of performance and sophistication.

Power for the BMW X6 is generated by one of two prime movers: the xDrive50i (4.4L V8) and the xDrive35i (3.0L inline six-cylinder), both outfitted with twin turbochargers and direct injection. Both engines receive an all-new eight-speed sport automatic transmission with adaptive transmission control (ATC) as standard equipment.

The BMW X6 is equipped with the automaker’s proven intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive technology with electronic control to vary the distribution of drive power between the front and rear axles, instantaneously adjusting to driving conditions. The BMW X6 takes xDrive a step further with the introduction of Dynamic Performance Control, a system that ensures variable distribution of drive forces between the two rear wheels.

Dynamic Performance Control incorporates an advanced computer control and an innovative rear differential incorporating two planetary gearsets and two clutch packs that enable the system to multiply torque on an individual rear wheel. The result is that this system can help steer the vehicle by directing torque to either of the rear wheels.

Underway the X6 is an opulent experience for four adults – power is fluid and seamless, while handling and control is more like a precision tool in the grasp of an experienced craftsman. Spirited cornering is virtually flat at even elevated speeds.

Suspension technology used by the X6 starts with a double wishbone control arm configuration at the front with BMW’s patented Integral IV axle, four trailing arms and subframe at the rear. The drivetrain and suspension hardware have been engineered to work perfectly with BMW’s Integrated Chassis Management. This electronic control ensures harmonious interaction of drivetrain and suspension functions within a fraction of a second.

Inside the sporty and luxurious passenger cabin, the X6 offers a unique synthesis of luxury, sporting dynamics and style. The X6 Sports Activity Coupe offers occupants an elevated, commanding seating position. The sporting design of the X6 includes wide opening rear doors that facilitate access individual rear seats separated from one another through the center console, the high-rising side supports and the integrated headrests on all four seats.

Displays, controls and switchgear are typical BMW, with its iDrive MMI in its usual place in the middle of the center console. Despite the steep rake of the rear of the vehicle, the X6 has a large cargo area. The rear 60/40 split folding rear seats add to the versatility of the passenger cabin.
