Comfort & Convenience
BMW Navigation System with iDrive Touchpad Controller
Wherever you’re going, get there confidently with the BMW X6 Navigation System with iDrive. Advanced Real Time Traffic Information displays local traffic updates, including delays and alternate routes to keep you one step ahead. The ECO PRO navigation feature directs you to the most fuel-efficient route, while Proactive Driving Assistant lets you know when best to ease off the accelerator to maximize fuel savings. And the easy-to-use iDrive touchpad controller and three-dimensional map displays makes reaching your destination easier and more enjoyable than ever.
Convenience is keyless with the advanced Comfort Access System. Simply carry the keys in your pocket and unlock doors just by touching the handle, open the trunk just by lifting your foot under the rear bumper and activate the engine with just the push of a button.
20-Way Power Multi-Contour Seats
The 20-way power multi contour front seats are newly designed with high-grade leather seats, armrests, backrests and door panels. In addition to horizontal, vertical and angled adjustments, the seats include an articulated upper backrest, comfort headrest, power-adjustable side bolsters and four-way power lumbar support. And with new bi-color contrast Nappa leather in Ivory White/Black (pictured right) or Cognac/Black, including a leather dashboard, the striking interior of the BMW X6 proves it’s truly all in the details.
Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster
The Dynamic Digital Instrument Cluster puts relevant driving information in a sleek digital display, with different color themes and content signifying whether you’re in Comfort, ECO PRO or Sport driving modes.
Dynamic Damper Control and Rear Axle Air Suspension
Dynamic Damper Control along with the air suspension for the rear axle allows you to adjust to different road conditions for more comfortable driving and transport of cargo. So you can ride relaxed even on the roughest roads.
BMW Apps for iOS and Android
Part of ConnectedDrive, BMW Apps lets you access social networks, music plug-ins and video playback through your iPhone® and Android® device, and see them on the display screen (requires Navigation). Tune in to web radio and search for stations from around the globe by name, location or genre, and store your favorite ones on your iPhone so you can take them with you from one vehicle to another. You can access Twitter and Facebook accounts to stay on top of your social media, and enjoy music on-demand with Pandora® Radio. And with the GoPro App, you’ll even be able to control your GoPro camera using the iDrive system.
Bluetooth® Audio Streaming
Bluetooth® Audio Streaming-available from BMW ConnectedDrive-wirelessly plays the music saved on your Bluetooth-capable smartphone or MP3 player.
Bang & Olufsen Surround Sound System
Experience sound quality equal to that of the world’s best concert halls with the optional Bang & Olufsen® high-quality Surround Sound system. Thanks to innovative technologies like 16 active speakers, 1,200 watts and an acoustic lens in the center speaker - which opens when the sound system is activated - every passenger is given an exclusive box seat.
Precisely orchestrated trebles, mid-tones and bass notes treat the most discerning music enthusiasts to the acoustic fidelity and quality of a real concert hall. For example, try "Studio" mode for crystal-clear sound or the "Expanded" mode for incomparable surround sound.
BMW Mobile Office
BMW Mobile Office, as part of BMW ConnectedDrive, keeps you connected no matter where the road leads by integrating many office functions into the main menu of your vehicle’s iDrive screen. You can conveniently organize your daily events, and browse through emails, texts and tasks on the screen or have them read aloud over the audio speakers.
Harman Kardon® Surround Sound System
It's a sound experience as remarkable as the BMW driving experience. Unlike traditional stereo systems, the optional Harman Kardon®Surround Sound System uses vehicle-specific equalizing, and a powerful 600W amplifier, to deliver powerful, high-current, ultrawide-bandwidth. The result: a scintillating audio performance that pumps the highest definition soundtrack to the open road. The 16-speaker system also includes six tweeters, four mid-range speakers, two bass speakers located under the front seats, one mid-range speaker and one tweeter in the instrument panel.
Performance & Efficiency
3.0-Liter, BMW TwinPower Turbo Inline 6-Cylinder Engine, 300 hp
This advanced inline six generates 300 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque at 1400-1500 rpm, launching from 0-60 in just six seconds, 0.3 seconds quicker than its predecessor. And you can say goodbye to turbo-lag thanks to Double-VANOS steplessly variable valve timing, direct fuel injection and BMW's inspired use of the latest TwinPower Turbo technology.
The engine's innovative design includes an all-aluminum engine block with cast iron sleeves for durability and a direct fuel injection system that also cools the engine. A cooler engine allows for a higher compression ratio, which translates into superior emission control, greater fuel efficiency and, most importantly, a thrilling performance.
8-Speed STEPTRONIC Sport Automatic Transmission
Prepare for an unprecedented level of vehicle response. The 8-speed STEPTRONIC sport automatic transmission features high internal efficiency, precision, and short shift times for improved gear shifting, more responsive performance and reduced fuel consumption.
Additionally, the transmission features Launch Control, a high-precision traction system that translates engine power into road speed efficiently, launching you from a standstill with breathtaking acceleration.
Dynamic Performance Control + Active Roll Stabilization
Dynamic Performance Control smoothly distributes power between the rear wheels for ultimate agility and sporty handling. When cornering, the outside wheel receives more power, allowing you to drive "into" curves. At the same time, Active Roll Stabilization minimizes body roll and enables the BMW X6 to transform tight corners into straightaways.
The extroverted, athletic looks of the BMW X6 are anything but superficial. Every detail has been meticulously designed for optimized aerodynamic performance. Air Curtains integrated into the front apron, Air Breathers in the fenders and optimized rear airflow - it all comes together up to reduce turbulence and decrease the vehicle’s drag coefficient as far as Cd 0.34.
Driving Dynamics Control
Maintain the highest level of comfort, agility and efficiency in all road conditions with innovative drive train and chassis technologies and optimized driving modes, now including ECO PRO.
With Driving Dynamics Control, you determine which personality of the BMW X6 shines through with the push of a button. We’ve enhanced each mode so that SPORT driving mode feels more athletic, SPORT+ guarantees maximum performance, and COMFORT+ driving mode gears all of the connected systems - such as Dynamic Damper Control (if equipped) and the transmission - toward ultimate ease of traveling.
Safety & Security
Active Driving Assistant
Drive more confidently with the camera-based Active Driving Assistant. The BMW X6 includes Lane Departure Warning, which alerts you when you drift lanes with a visible signal and steering wheel vibration. Additionally, Pedestrian and Collision Warning detects hazards on a collision course with the vehicle, and depending on driving conditions, initiates the braking system to reduce vehicle speed and prevent critical situations before they occur.
Displays video images of approaching traffic on the Control Display. Side-view cameras positioned in the front bumpers show traffic approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Top-view camera provides video images of the road alongside the doors, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors. All these cameras come together to capture a 360° panorama and generate an incredible bird’s-eye view of the vehicle’s surrounding environment.
Full Color Head-Up Display
Full Color Head-Up Display projects key information onto the windshield to appear directly in the driver’s field of view to minimize distractions. Responsive to light conditions around them, the projections can be easily adjusted using the iDrive Controller. Depending on the vehicle specification and equipped optional features, the display not only shows current speed, but speed limits, navigation instructions, and various warning messages. And now, with a touch of a button on the steering wheel, you can also scroll through music libraries or change radio stations.
BMW Assist eCall and TeleServices
In an emergency, BMW Assist eCall, now standard in all BMWs, automatically sends your location and relevant information to police and EMT services, saving critical time when you need it most. Also standard, with BMW TeleServices, your BMW knows exactly when the next servicing appointment is coming up and informs you about any maintenance requirements. Your BMW Service Center will call you to arrange an appointment. Wherever you are, your BMW Service Center is at your side.
Park Distance Control
Eight sensors - four in the front, four in the rear - help you judge how close you are to other vehicles and unseen objects when parking. And in coordination with Surround View, Park Distance Control lets you know if your vehicle can fit in a space before you begin pulling in.
