BMW X6 Review

Synopsis

Looking for a car that stands out from traditional SUVs can be quite challenging, especially now that there are many car manufacturers that try their best to match and compete with each other’s standards. It can be more perplexing to choose among the models if you are a first time car buyer. It can be a good idea to look into options before purchasing a car. Such options include the features and durability of the car. If you are looking for a car that is more about speed and activity, then you may want to take a look at one of India’s hottest cars today, the BMW X6.

Exterior and Interior

When you first set eyes on the BMW X6, you will know this is the car you have been waiting to drive all your life. The BMW X6 is a four-passenger SAV or sports activity vehicle also called a luxury crossover by some drivers. This sports activity coupe, as BMW loves to call it, has stylish good looks. The sleek body lines and everything about it says 'take me I'm yours’. The vehicle’s overall measurement is 4,877 mm with a width of 1,983 mm and a height of 1,690 mm. It has a wheelbase of 2,933 mm. When you get into the car, the soft velour leather seat wraps around you in a warm embrace and you know you are where you have waited to be for so long. Once you insert the key into the ignition and start the motor, the sound of the engine is like a symphony to your ears, powerful, yet subdued, like a wild animal waiting to be tamed.

Engine

BMW X6 is available with 2 engine options: 4395cc, V8 petrol engine and 2993cc, V6 diesel engine. The 4395cc, V8 petrol engine generates maximum power of 407 bhp with maximum torque of 600 nm. The 2993cc, V6 diesel engine develops maximum power of 306 bhp with maximum torque of 600 nm. These BMW X6 engines are paired off to a eight-speed automatic, uninterruptedly flexible transmission which makes it a fantasy to many car lovers.

Variants

BMW X6 is available in two variants: xDrive 50i and xDrive 40d.

Mileage

The average fuel consumption of the BMW X6 is 30.1 MPG with an average CO2 output 244.0 g/km, which is impressive enough for a sports activity vehicle. There are a few differences depending on the series or model but compared to most SAVs, it is quite exceptional.

Safety Features

The safety features included in BMW X6 are quite similar to other SAVs and SUVs. It includes ABS brakes or anti-lock brakes that automatically detects when a tire has stopped spinning under extreme thumping on the brakes. This feature gives the vehicle the capacity to control the brake pressure to allow the tire to spin. This increases the cars capability to turn while slowing down. It also comes with stability control which mechanically senses when the vehicle’s handling boundaries have been overdone and reduces engine power and or applies select power-assisted brakes to help prevent the car driver from losing control of the car. Front-impact airbags are available for the passenger and the driver and have been designed to protect the head during crash.

Side impact airbags are also installed at the front seats to protect the passengers’ torso during a side impact crash. Aside from front and side airbags, overhead airbags have also been installed to protect the passengers’ heads in case there is a rollover or a side smash. Seatbelt pretensioners are common among new car models which automatically tighten seat-belts to place the passengers in an optimal seating position during a crash. It also comes with an anti-whiplash, which actively reacts to rear impact forces and cradles the occupants head to reduce the possibility of having a whiplash injury. Like most recent BMW models, it comes with a security system which detects any unwanted vehicle intrusion. The vehicle is fitted out with an ignition disable device to prevent the engine from starting if the original BMW manufacturer key is not used.

Accessories

When it comes to accessories, it is always best to purchase from legitimate distributors. Some may offer cheaper rates which can be really attractive but on the other hand, the quality of materials used and warranty are not guaranteed. Chances are, they will get broken in a span of a few months or years. Genuine BMW accessories can be purchased online or through BMW showrooms throughout India. Whether it is for travel, leisure, performance or car care, original BMW accessories are highly functional and attractive.

Value for Money

The BMW X6 went on sale in the second quarter of 2008, with a promise to its customers in India to combine the benefits of a sports utility vehicle plus a whole lot more into one cool package. There are 2 BMW X6 variants available in India today, the xDrive50i which runs by petrol and the BMW X6 xDrive40d that uses diesel. BMW is famous for its extravagance and performance when it comes to auto products which always make it a good value for money especially if one is looking for durability and class.

Verdict

Overall, if you are more into sports activity than a typical family car, then BMW X6 is the right car for you. With a body frame derived from the style of construction of light trucks, its durability is definitely indisputable. On the other hand, if you are looking for a typical SUV, you can look into earlier BMW models. Buying a car should not only satisfy one’s taste but also one’s needs. The BMW X6 is focused on providing customers features that are intended for activities and sports-car like on-road capacity instead of utilities.
