In vogue BMW X6 appearance knocks some people’s socks off

Blend of agile and adapt­able dri­ving prop­er­ties of the new BMW X6 Sports Activ­i­ty Vehi­cle (SAV) knocks some peo­ple’s socks off with its impres­sive looks.

Like its pre­de­ces­sor, BMW Group will man­u­fac­ture the new BMW X6 at its Spar­tan­burg Plant in the US.

The Ger­man car­mak­er will acquaint the pre­mi­um car with the mar­ket in Novem­ber 2019.

Only the BMW X6 M50i and BMW X6 M50d will be avail­able in South Africa in Novem­ber 2019.

The BMW X6 M50i and BMW X6 M50d come with 21-inch light-com­pos­ite wheels as stan­dard.

A rough ter­rain bun­dle is avail­able for every mod­el vari­a­tion except the BMW X6 M50i and BMW X6 M50d, with an alter­na­tive to choose from four modes that opti­mize over snow, sand, rock or shakes.

The X6 third-gen­er­a­tion employ a per­fect, restric­tive struc­ture lan­guage to under­score its cer­tain and amaz­ing appear­ance.

Inno­v­a­tive pow­er­train and chas­sis tech­nol­o­gy team up with a wealth of advance­ment to deliv­er a sport­ing yet also lux­u­ri­ous dri­ving expe­ri­ence.

X6 flaunts the most strik­ing sin­gle-out­line BMW kid­ney grille extend­ing to the head­lights at a char­ac­ter­ized edge.

The new BMW X6 is avail­able for the first time as a choice with an illu­mi­nat­ed BMW kid­ney grille.

Its grille adds a selec­tive pros­per to the out­side design acti­vat­ed by open­ing or clos­ing the vehi­cle — the dri­ver can man­u­aly turn it on and off.

The kid­ney grille’s light­ing capac­i­ty is also avail­able while the vehi­cle is in move­ment.

If we spec­i­fy the option­al BMW Laserlight with Adap­tive LED head­lights, a BMW Laserlight spot­light with Selec­tive Beam opti­mizes the non-daz­zling high beam func­tion, whose range increas­es to around 500 meters.

Famil­iar BMW size define the new X6 flanks drawn char­ac­ter line and the dynam­ic roofline.

X6 is fit­ted with stan­dard 19-inch light-alloy wheels with oth­er vari­ants rang­ing from 20 to 22 inch­es avail­able as a choice.

The new BMW X6 is avail­able from launch in xLine and M Sport mod­el vari­ants as an alter­na­tive to stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion

The two equip­ment lines each have their own dis­tinc­tive design cues.

Inte­ri­or: an exclu­sive ambiance imbued with sport­ing flair

Man­u­fac­tur­er gears the inte­ri­or of the new BMW X6 to deliv­er an exclu­sive and dynam­ic dri­ving expe­ri­ence.

Clear struc­tures lend the cab­in a mod­ern and sporty appear­ance.

Design of the cock­pit, com­plete with the new arrange­ment and design of the con­trol ele­ments, is a pro­gres­sive rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of the dri­ver focus for which BMW is renowned.

The new BMW X6 comes as stan­dard with Ver­nasca leather uphol­stery.

Inte­ri­or offers high vari­abil­i­ty, thanks to 40:20:40 split rear seat back­rests fold­ing to increase boot capac­i­ty from 580 to 1,530 litres.

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

All new BMW X6 mod­els come as stan­dard with an eight-speed Step­tron­ic trans­mis­sion, while intel­li­gent all-wheel dri­ve max­imis­es trac­tion, agili­ty and direc­tion­al sta­bil­i­ty.

The lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the BMW xDrive sys­tem once again splits dri­ve torque between the front and rear wheels and as the sit­u­a­tion demands – only now with even greater pre­ci­sion and speed.

BMW X6 can chan­nel the dri­ve to the rear wheels in the inter­ests of effi­cien­cy in sit­u­a­tions which do not require all-wheel dri­ve,

The xDrive sys­tem also main­tains a rear-wheel bias in dynam­ic dri­ving sit­u­a­tions.

The elec­tron­ic con­trolled M dif­fer­en­tial lock at the rear axle aid the car’s sport­ing attrib­ut­es avail­able as part of M Sport spec­i­fi­ca­tion or with the option­al xOf­froad pack­age.

Tuned chas­sis sys­tems enhance sport­ing respons­es, com­fort lev­els, and off-road prowess.

A dou­ble-wish­bone front axle and five-link rear axle give the new BMW X6 the ide­al sus­pen­sion tools to deliv­er dynamism and ride com­fort on the road, plus unshak­able trac­tion off the beat­en track.

Dynam­ic Damper Con­trol is avail­able as stan­dard

Adap­tive M sus­pen­sion Pro­fes­sion­al with active roll sta­bil­i­sa­tion and Inte­gral Active Steer­ing endows the car with agile and dynam­ic dri­ving qual­i­ties, and the new BMW X6 is also avail­able with two-axle air sus­pen­sion includ­ing auto­mat­ic self-lev­el­ling.

The dri­ver can alter the car’s height by touch­ing a but­ton in the cock­pit through a max­i­mum of 80 mil­lime­tres.

And at the press of a but­ton, they can also acti­vate the ide­al set­tings for the vehicle’s ride height, the xDrive sys­tem, accel­er­a­tor response, trans­mis­sion con­trol, and the DSC system’s cor­rec­tive inputs.

Inno­v­a­tive dri­ver help sys­tems offer­ing new func­tions

An exten­sive selec­tion of stan­dard and option­al dri­ver help sys­tems mark out the new BMW X6 as an inno­v­a­tive Sports Activ­i­ty Coupe.

Adding a myr­i­ad new func­tions, the sys­tems do an effec­tive job in enhanc­ing com­fort and safe­ty.

Stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion for the new BMW X6 includes Cruise Con­trol with brak­ing func­tion, col­li­sion and pedes­tri­an warn­ing with City Brak­ing func­tion, which also alerts the dri­ver when detect­ing a cyclist.

The Active Cruise Con­trol sys­tem with Stop & Go func­tion is avail­able as an option.

Dri­ving Assis­tant Pro­fes­sion­al is on the options list for the new BMW X6.

This com­plete pack­age of safe­ty- and com­fort-enhanc­ing tech includes both the steer­ing and lane con­trol assis­tant with Traf­fic jam and lane keep­ing assis­tants 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 maneu­ver­ing with­in a con­fined space, rep­re­sents anoth­er step en route to auto­mate dri­ving.

BMW Intel­li­gent Per­son­al Assis­tant is on hand to help the dri­ver

The BMW Live Cock­pit Pro­fes­sion­al in the new 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 new 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 BMW Intel­li­gent Per­son­al Assis­tant (IPA) ensures there is always a gen­uine BMW pro­fes­sion­al on board.

IPA can explain many dif­fer­ent func­tions, pro­vide up-to-date infor­ma­tion and assist the dri­ver.

The range of func­tions and skills avail­able expand as part of reg­u­lar updates found on a smart­phone and in a car via Remote Soft­ware Upgrade.

Four pow­er­ful engines and an M duo from launch

Line-up of engines for the new BMW X6 avail­able dur­ing the launch includes two petrol units and a pair of diesel vari­ants from the lat­est gen­er­a­tion.

BMW M mod­el devel­oped 390 kW V8 petrol engine is spear­head­ing the mod­el line-up

BMW X6 M50d (fuel con­sump­tion com­bined: 7.2–6.9 l/100 km; CO2 emis­sions com­bined: 190–181 g/km)* with 294 kW six-cylin­der in line diesel engine and a quar­tet of tur­bocharg­ers joins BMW X6 M50i (fuel con­sump­tion com­bined: 10.7–10.4 l/100 km; CO2 emis­sions com­bined: 243–237 g/km)*

A straight-six petrol unit with out­put of 250 kW sees action in the BMW X6 xDrive40i (fuel con­sump­tion com­bined: 8.6–8.0 l/100 km; CO2 emis­sions com­bined: 197–181 g/km)*, and the BMW X6 xDrive30d (fuel con­sump­tion com­bined: 6.6–6.1 l/100 km; CO2 emis­sions com­bined: 172–159 g/km)* uses a six-cylin­der in-line diesel with 195 kW.

All vari­ants of the new BMW X6 ful­fill the EU6d-TEMP emis­sions stan­dard.

The M Sport exhaust sys­tem fit­ted as stan­dard on both M mod­els is also avail­able as an option for the oth­er ver­sions of the BMW X6 or as part of the M Sport pack­age and gives the car an unmis­tak­able and rich aur­al pres­ence.

Dynam­i­cal­ly stretched pro­por­tions exude sport­ing prowess

The new BMW X6 has grown by 26 mil­lime­tres in exte­ri­or length over the out­go­ing mod­el (to 4,935 mm) and by 15 mm in width (to 2,004 mm).

It now stands 6 mm low­er (at 1,696 mm) and com­bines dynam­i­cal­ly stretched pro­por­tions with excep­tion­al visu­al mus­cu­lar­i­ty.
