The BMW X6's TwinPower Turbo engines are a potent mixture of dynamics and efficiency, and BMW xDrive helps to bring this power to the street. Outstanding equipment such as the Design Pure Extravagance package, and top-quality materials make sure this car takes centre stage.
ExteriorBroad, muscular and dynamic, the BMW X6 combines the solid stance of an X model with the athleticism of a coupé. The commanding front contains striking air inlets that provide an indication of the power behind them. The large, sporty, double kidney-shaped grille underlines this athletic presence, with an added air of supremacy provided by the double headlights and the fog lights, which are positioned wide on the vehicle’s exterior.
When viewed from the side, the sporty, coupé-like silhouette comes to prominence, optically framed by the premium chrome surrounds of the windows. The unmistakeable crease line extends from the powerfully shaped wheel front wheel housing to the rear door handles, and then elegantly tapers off towards the rear. The dynamic nature of the BMW X6 is even more prominent across the impressively wide rear, where horizontal lines characterise the solid stance. The BMW X6 is ready to leave all limits behind.
With clear structures, exclusive sportiness and high-quality craftsmanship, the interior of the BMW X6 is carefully thought-through, right down to the last detail. In typical BMW style, the cockpit is fully orientated towards the driver, who enjoys an excellent overview thanks to the elevated seating position. The sporty shape of the seats guarantees optimum stability, even on the most challenging journeys.
The coupé-like silhouette and all-encompassing interior contours ensure that vehicle occupants feel comfortable at all times. Light and dark interior surfaces create intense contrasts and the premium-quality materials and standard-feature leather trims send out a clear message: Perfection is of the essence.

DESIGN PURE EXTRAVAGANCEWith the Design Pure Extravagance package, the independent nature of the BMW X6 comes to the fore − whichever way you look at it. Exclusive details in Cerium Grey, sophisticated exterior geometry and a special BMW kidney grille are just some of the many features on offer. On the inside, this strength of character continues thanks to the colour and material combinations.
INFORMATION PLUSFor anyone who has ever wanted to know what it is like to have their own personal butler, here is their chance: with Information Plus from BMW ConnectedDrive. At the push of a button the driver is connected with a BMW Call Centre agent who acts as their "personal assistant" on the road.
From a particular restaurant to the nearest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy – the BMW Call Centre agent is there to help and can even send information directly to the navigation system. Information Plus operates independently of the driver's mobile phone and are available in their home country and abroad, around-the-clock, seven days a week and at no extra cost.
ONLINE ENTERTAINMENTThe perfect song for every situation, every road and every mood. Online Entertainment offers direct and unlimited access to more than 22 million music titles inside the BMW – all without a smartphone or other device. There are plenty of tracks here to suit every taste. As soon as an artist's song or album is played in the car, it is automatically downloaded to the car's hard disc. For guaranteed listening enjoyment without any interruptions.
With the Online Entertainment offer, a flat-rate account lasting one year can be opened with any BMW music partner, for example with Napster, that can be used in the UK, Germany, France, Italy and the Netherlands without any additional costs.
Additionally, when listenting to the radio, there's a recognition feature that will display the track, artist and album, and allows you to start streaming the album, or any other by the artist. All while the track continues to play.
REMOTE SERVICESWith Remote Services and the free MyBMW Remote App (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play store), various vehicle-related functions, such as locking and unlocking the car, can be operated remotely. It is also possible to directly transmit selected destinations found using the GoogleTM search engine. In addition, the car's location can be shown within a radius of 1.5 km.
REALTIME TRAFFICReal Time Traffic Information (RTTI) provides the most up-to-date traffic information at all times. Precise details about the time and duration of hold-ups are relayed to provide almost instantaneous traffic information about motorways, country roads and main roads, as well as numerous urban routes. Intelligent alternative route suggestions help the driver reach their destination as efficiently as possible. The data is drawn from such sources as anonymous movement profiles from the GPS data of vehicle fleets, smartphone apps and police reports, and also takes into account established traffic patterns such as peak commute times.
DRIVING ASSISTANCE PLUSDriving Assistant Plus not only includes the Driver Assistance systems, Lane Departure Warning, approach control and person warning with light city braking function, but also the active cruise control with Stop&Go function for additional comfort.
HEAD-UP DISPLAYThe full colour BMW Head-up Display projects all information relevant to the journey directly into the driver's field of vision, thereby allowing them to fully concentrate on driving. The display includes data such as speed, navigation tips, speed limit information, no-overtaking indicator, telephone and entertainment lists, along with information and warnings from the various driver assistance systems.
PARK ASSISTPark Assist makes parallel parking easier. Whether activated or not, the system measures potential spaces while driving past at a low speed (below 21 mph) and at a maximum distance of 1.5 m from the row of parked cars. When a large enough gap has been found, the driver simply turns on the indicator and Park Assist takes over the steering, while the driver continues to operate the accelerator, gears and brakes. The system also gives instructions in the Control Display and additional acoustic signals. So the driver can stay relaxed and enjoy greater safety while parking.
BMW NIGHT VISION WITH PERSON RECOGNITIONBMW Night Vision with person recognition provides the driver with a range of vision that well exceeds the beam of light from the headlights, making it possible to identify people and large animals from a significant distance at night.
An infrared camera mounted on the BMW kidney grille transmits images from the front of the vehicle onto the Control Display. This allows the driver to identify people and animals at a distance of up to about 300 metres.
While taking account of the vehicle speed and steering angle, the system also calculates whether the identified objects pose an actual risk. In the event of acute danger, a flashing red icon (animal or person) is displayed in the video image and in the optional BMW Head-up Display. An acoustic alarm is also sounded and the brakes are primed for optimum readiness.
This warning system is automatically activated when the vehicle is started. In the event of danger, the system therefore even emits a warning when the imaging display has not been activated. BMW Night Vision with person recognition is an innovation from BMW ConnectedDrive.
Just bought a brand new 1 Series M Sport, when it came to pick it up at the dealership it was sat ready and waiting in the showroom. I'm very happy with the results and would highly recommend them if your thinking about purchasing a BMW.
