BMW X6 Cross-Over

Written by tonks on October 1, 2007

BMW X6BMW is one of the few automakers who can make both coupes, cross-overs and SUV’s with ease and excellence. Most SUV’s and cross-overs have harsh lines and that tough look about them that just screams “off-road”. But not everyone rides in them for that reason. Some people just love the room, especially when they have a large family.

The BMW X6 is their newest cross-over that gives you the space you need mixed with the sophistication that you love. The BMW X6 features Dynamic Performance Control for unique directional stability and precision under all driving conditions as well as BMW’s intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive technology.

Clear orientation to the wheels, generous ground clearance and extra-large wheel arches give BMW X6 the powerful presence so characteristic of a BMW X model. BMW X6 is the first car in the world to feature Dynamic Performance Control for unique directional stability and precision under all driving conditions as well as BMW’s intelligent xDrive all-wheel-drive technology.

As recent photos show, the X6 is anything but a conservative design. The X6′s roofline begins arching downward after the B-pillar and continues plunging right to the X6′s rising waistline. As a result, second-row headroom and rear cargo volume are both compromised. The new X6 will be longer and lower than the new X5, seating only four. But what the sporty X6 loses in seating and storage, it is expected gain in performance.

The X6 is, by far, the most extreme example of a “crossover-coupe” to date. Mercedes and Land Rover are both rumored to be planning similar vehicles, but no plans have been announced. BMW also debuted a hybrid version of its X6 Concept. Visually the hybrid is identical to the regular X6 but BMW claims that the hybrid is 20% more fuel-efficient. Various reports indicate the X6 will be BMW’s first production car offered with the option of a hybrid powertrain.
