BMW has decided to produce a sub genre all its personal, making up the term ‘Sports Activity Coupe’ and occupied it with a single offering – the X6. When the X6 went on sale in 2008 judges exacted it was a place too far and that there was no requirement for such a machine. But the X6 came stuffing attitude, energetic capability and didn’t require anyone’s support to be what it is. For the year 2011, BMW has appended a new six-cylinder diesel engine to top X6 diesel array and called the prototype the xDrive 40d.
In terms of external design, its esthetics’s is daring, characteristic and in the figure it has a singling out road presence. The X6 shares a stand and overall proportions with its X5 sibling but every control board in its sheet metal is all its own.
At the back, broad shoulder lines cover into an advanced hatch lip and two-piece LED tail lamps. The back windscreen is set down very flat and fused with the high back deck gives the X6 an encouraged, swooping posture. There are all the practical touches of an SUV like incorporated roof railings and black plastic under surface facing but the X6’s macadam terrifying intention is indicated through broad double drain tips forcing out of the back bumper and discretionary 20-inch wheels with fat 315 rubbers at the back. In full the X6 looks like a sinister twin brother of X5.
The inside is completed to BMW’s demanding criterion with high-grade materials and perfect build excellence. The control panel is the same as on the X5 and 5-Series, it operates well and is rationally laid out, delicately chic and has instrumentation that can be easily read. Profoundly padded but at ease electric leather seats and a broad centre comfort provides the driver and the rider a featherbedding seating posture. BMW’s iDrive system assures a wide range of amusement and vehicle backgrounds through a single jog dial. It’s satisfactorily instinctive and the major display looks incredible on its 8.8-inch full colour screen.
Normally the backseat is more fascinating than the front arrangement. Merely 4 adults can take up the X6 seats in total. Backseat riders are treated to single seats with a storage plastic piece substituting the center pew. The coupe roof line has limited back end headroom for taller riders and for shorter ones the elevated window line does not allow greater side vision.
On road the X6 executes like nothing else in the region and BMW’s tending new-generation 3.0-liter diesel engine causes for a firm fit in this high-end version. It is a straight six configuration with twin-turbo charging to make sure it packs a heavyweight blow when pushed hard. Developing 225kW of power and astonishing 600Nm of torsion, which is obtainable from merely 1,500rpm, it goes off the line quickly. The smart chronological turbo organization helps the X6 40d move from standing to 100kph in 6.5 seconds but it feels even more straightaway than that figure would propose.
BMW’s latest 8-speed automatic gearbox is mated to the boosted diesel mill and is an elegant match and the diffusion is as silky as you can get from a conventional set up. With eight gears to select from the torsion engine which is laid in its strongest power band for elevated operation or shifts up early during unstrained searching. The gearbox assists the 40d bring back a 7.5l/100km fuel economy on the collective cycle. Allowing for the X6’s fanatical performance and over 2,000kg kerb weight this is an imposing and tempting utilization figure.
