The BMW X6: A New Breed of Car.  A leader with broad shoulders.

The sleek and dynamic BMW X6 is the model that lit the fuse for an innovative and highly distinctive new breed of car: the Sports Activity Coupe (SAC). The third-generation BMW X6 blends the agile and versatile driving properties of a Sports Activity Vehicle with the head-turning looks of a coupe.

The BMW X6 employs a clean, exclusive design language to underscore its confident and commanding appearance. And advanced powertrain and chassis technology teams up with a wealth of innovations to deliver a uniquely sporting yet also luxurious driving experience.

Dynamically stretched proportions exude sporting prowess.

The large, single-frame BMW kidney grille is the most striking feature of the front end, the outer edges of the kidney grille now approaching the headlights at a clearly defined angle. The BMW X6 is available for the first time as an option with an illuminated BMW kidney grille, which adds an exclusive flourish to the exterior design. The illumination is activated by opening or closing the car, but the driver can switch it on and off manually too. This lighting function for the kidney grille is also available while driving.

Interior: an exclusive ambience imbued with sporting flair.

The interior of the BMW X6 is geared squarely to delivering an exclusive and dynamic driving experience. Clear structures lend the cabin a modern and sporty appearance. The design of the cockpit, complete with the new arrangement and design of the control elements, represents a progressive re-interpretation of the driver focus for which BMW is renowned. The BMW X6 comes as standard with Vernasca leather upholstery.

Highlight equipment features from the list of optional extras include multifunction seats with massage function for the driver and front passenger, four-zone automatic climate control, thermoelectric cup holders, glass applications for selected controls, the Panorama glass roof Sky Lounge, the Ambient Air interior fragrancing package and the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond+ 3D Surround Sound System.

Four powerful engines and an M duo from launch.

The line-up of engines available for the BMW X6 from launch includes two petrol units from the latest generation. The model line-up is spearheaded by a BMW M model with a newly developed 530 hp V8 petrol engine. A straight-six petrol unit with output of 340 hp sees action in the BMW X6 xDrive40i.

Innovative driver assistance systems offering new functions.

An extensive selection of standard and optional driver assistance systems mark out the BMW X6 as an exceptionally innovative Sports Activity Coupe. Fresh from the addition of myriad new functions, the systems do an extremely effective job in enhancing comfort and safety.

Standard specification for the BMW X6 includes Cruise Control with braking function and the Collision and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function, which also alerts the driver when a cyclist is detected. The Active Cruise Control system with Stop & Go function is available as an option.

The Driving Assistant Professional can also be found on the options list for the BMW X6. This complete package of safety- and comfort-enhancing tech includes both the steering and lane control assistant with Traffic jam assistant and lane keeping assistant with active side collision protection.

The Evasion Assistant is another component of the Driving Assistant Professional, as are the rear collision warning, road priority warning and wrong-way driving warning systems, crossing traffic warning, Lane Change Warning and the Emergency Stop Assistant.

The innovative reversing assistant, which helps the driver when exiting parking spaces and manoeuvring within a confined space, represents another step enroute to automated driving.

BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant is on hand to help the driver. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional in the BMW X6 combines a new display and operating concept with unbeatable connectivity.

It includes a high-resolution instrument cluster and a Control Display, both with a screen diagonal of 12.3 inches. The BMW X6 comes with the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, an intelligent digital character who responds to the prompt “Hey BMW”.

One unique feature over other digital assistants is that drivers can choose their own name for him. The arrival of the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant ensures there is always a genuine BMW professional on board. He is able to explain all sorts of different functions, provide up-to-date information and assist the driver.

The range of functions and skills available will be constantly expanded as part of regular updates, which can be carried out seamlessly on a smartphone and in-car via Remote Software Upgrade.
