Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Ride quality is firm, and the X6 suspension controls body motions well. The electronic steering doesn’t give the driver the road feel that BMWs of the past transmitted.

Each engine, including the base model’s six-cylinder, is strong and willing, promising stimulating performance. Admirably smooth, the 3.0-liter delivers sufficient thrust to satisfy most drivers.

Still, the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 in the xDrive50i sends the pleasure quotient up a notch, helped by the prompt-shifting 8-speed transmission. Acceleration to 60 mph takes place in a brisk 4.7 seconds. Because the fashionable X6 tends to make a statement rather than merely provide lavish transportation, a V8 seems more appropriate for its mission, though gas mileage sinks significantly.

The X6 M delivers thunderous vigor when wanted, with its 567-horsepower V8 always waiting patiently for opportunities to leap into action. With its heftier anti-sway bars and special air suspension, the X6 M handles nearly as well as many lower-riding sports sedans.

Ranking as the most popular model, the six-cylinder xDrive35i is EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. The rear-wheel-drive sDrive35i does a hair better, at 18/25/21 mpg. Despite its bountiful power, the X6M isn’t as thirsty as might be expected. Hardly frugal, though, it’s EPA-rated at 14/19 mpg City/Highway, or 16 mpg Combined. In all models, a stop/start system can shut the engine off at traffic lights.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Few vehicles draw such contrasting visual impressions as the BMW X6. Not everyone falls for the lushly sloped-roof profile; but for those who do, it’s a truly distinctive-looking vehicle, even after a decade on the market. Somehow, BMW designers made this eye-catching, still-daring crossover look somewhat pudgy, but also slinky.

BMW established the basic pattern, which has since been adopted by several premium manufacturers. BMW also offers a smaller version: the fashionable X4, derived from the company’s compact, conventionally-looking X3.

Differences between the X5 and X6 are negligible when viewed from the front. Below the beltline, too, the X6 looks almost like a traditional crossover. Higher up, the difference becomes dramatic.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Classy as well as tastefully refined, the X6 cabin promises a comfortable ride for as many as five occupants, provided the back-seaters aren’t too tall. Only a glance at the profile is needed to realize that rear headroom has to be restricted.

Front passengers can expect comfortable seats with multiple adjustments, promising a fine view ahead. In back, not only is headroom constricted, but entry/exit isn’t so easy.

The cargo hold also has problems. Tall items might not fit, due to the sloping back windows. Cargo volume totals almost 27 cubic feet, but BMW’s traditional-looking X5 crossover holds about 9 more. Considering usable space rather than numerical volume, the difference is even greater.

Every X6 feels solidly, carefully assembled. BMW offers a broad choice of interior trim, including several types of wood and aluminum. Leather upholstery comes in several grades. Each version is fitted with abundant standard equipment.


New Car Test Drive

The BMW X6 is satisfying to drive but may might not deliver quite as much motoring fun as its lush body suggests. Utility is somewhat limited by the design, but the cabin exudes a clearly upscale aura. No X6 falls short on either features or visual flair, amplified by a trio of strong engines. Inexpensive they are not, and adding options boosts the price into formidable territory.
