A mid-size luxury crossover, the BMW X6 is available in two different trim levels: X6 xDrive35i and X6 xDrive50i. The base trim is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that produces 300 hp while the upgraded trim level grants the driver a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that yields 400 hp. Both engines are paired to AWD and an 8-speed automatic transmission to produce an EPA estimated 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway (base X3). Features include xenon adaptive headlights, chrome exhaust, 20-inch wheels, engine start/stop button, power tailgate, park distance control (front and rear), navigation system, Bluetooth® wireless capabilities, HD radio, and USB adapter. Safety is comprised of dynamic stability control (DSC), anti-lock braking system (ABS), advanced airbags, and tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). The X6 is backed by a 4-year/50,000-mile warranty.Read more Read less

Excellent cornering and handling; powerful V8 engine; hybrid powertrain available
Premiering in 2009 and marketed as a "Sport Activity Coupe," the X6 is based on the X5 and deftly combines the sportiness of a coupe with the practicality of an SUV. Quick for its size and height, the X6 offers impressive cornering due to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution, wide tires and BMW's Dynamic Performance Control all-wheel-drive system.
