BMW X6 review – Bimmer captivates UAE with the agile X6.

The 21st century saw a revolution in the world of automobiles, car makers around the world put in their best to manufacture vehicles which suit different personalities and different needs. This led to the creation of executive coupé saloons, luxurious performance vehicles, futuristic SUV’s and we thought car makers had covered every possible gap in the market. It was then BMW introduced a completely new kind of vehicle, a type that would bring together the practicality and space of an SUV with the distinctive look and agile power of a coupé. Welcome the world’s first SAC (Sports Activity Coupé), BMW X6.

X6 is a much sportier and agile version of the celebrated X5. The on the exteriors though, X6 tells a different story, the roofline slopes down bulging towards the rear giving it the look of a coupé. The front looks quite similar to the X5 except it is much wider. BMW signature headlights and the family grille make for a prominent front profile, the sporty bumper with sharp designs looks aggressive. The rear is distinctive with the bulge, sleek taillights and sharp lines. The X6 bears a unique body which is sleek, sporty and muscular at the same time, this exclusive styling has made the X6 quite popular in Dubai.

The interior of this SAC is a carbon copy of the X5, the simple yet elegant design is crafted in fine leather with wooden and aluminium trims. The premium materials used in the interiors are top notch and the impressive functional details take them to new standards. The trade mark BMW steering wheel is wrapped in leather and equipped with paddle shifters, audio controls, voice command controls etc. A LCD color screen in the center of the dashboard acts as a hub for all multimedia and information display available. It is integrated with a premium entertainment system supporting CD, MP3, IPod and auxiliary inputs.  An optional HiFi audio package offers up to 16 high performance speakers with subwoofers under the seats delivering a distortion free acoustic punch. The leather wrapped seats are extremely comfortable with electronic adjustments to achieve an optimum driving position.

Advanced technology is what makes this luxurious cabin even better. Loaded with electronic gadgets and buttons, controls are surprisingly easy to understand. The special iDrive computer manages all your needs with a simple wheel cum button interface placed near the armrest. Every available feature in the car can be controlled by this easy-to-use joystick. Exclusive features include night vision camera, rear parking sensors with guidelines and camera, rear mounted DVD entertainment system, BMW’s highly appreciated heads-up display and much more.

Although bigger in size then the X5, X6 is smaller on the inside and can only seat four comfortably. Leg room is ample in the rear seats but head room is compromised due to the sloping roof line. The same roof line is reason for poor rear visibility of this vehicle. Luggage space in the boot is ample, seats fold down to make more room and the electronic tailgate adds convenience.

BMW X6 is powered by a choice of three gasoline engine options. The standard xDrive35i is a 3.0L 4WD turbocharged engine which produces 306 HP. The xDrive50i is an optional engine with a 4.4L V8 4WD with two turbochargers and High Precision Injection system and pumps 407HP at 4,500 RPM. But the true beast of them all is a M TwinPower Turbo engine with fastest response than any other turbo engine in the world. Producing 555HP, this is an extremely potent machine. This monstrous power is clearly felt with a slightest touch on the throttle. X6 is very swift on the steering wheel and the ride remains firm thanks to the Adaptive Drive suspension. The wheels a massive and available in various choices of 19” alloys. The feel and performance of X6 is truly a life time experience.

For safety BMW X6 offers front, side, side head and curtain airbags. ABS and dynamic performance control add to vehicle stability in various conditions. Other safety features include high-beam assist, adaptive Head and tail lights, the new passive safety system and run-flat tyres.
