BMW X6 Review

There's a reason BMW calls their vehicles the ultimate driving machines. This is especially the case when it comes to their relatively new mid-size luxury SUV, the 2018 BMW X6. This powerful and athletic BMW SUV combines the sportiness of a coupé and the versatility of an SUV. We could go on with superlatives, but instead, Kearys BMW thinks it wise to get to the facts and numbers that make the 2018 BMW X6 a one-of-a-kind SUV.

Ride of a Lifetime

If you already have an SUV, the first thing you'll notice is that driving a BMW X6 is unlike anything you've experienced. The BMW xDrive system offers the intelligent all-wheel drive that instantly adapts to almost any road surface condition. Using a DSC sensor system, the xDrive quickly distributes drive power between the axles, which can eliminate uncomfortable and dangerous oversteering and understeering as well as giving you safer acceleration. With the xDrive Status app, you also get real-time data about how the system is working and a 3D display. The ride gets even better when you include the adaptive suspension packages. These four packages — Comfort, Dynamic, Professional, Adaptive M — allow you to adapt the chassis to your driving style and personal tastes.


When you look under the bonnet of the 2018 BMW X6 you will not be disappointed. Depending on the trim level, you have four different engines — one petrol and three diesels — to choose from including:

  • TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with a mx output in kW at 1/min of 330 and max torque in Nm at 1/min of 650
  • TwinPower Turbo diesel engine with BMW EfficientDynamics and CommonRail direct injection with up to 280 kW and 740 Nm of torque

When you combine these powerful engines with intelligent lightweight construction and the 8-speed steptronic sport transmission with ECO PO mode you get fuel consumption as low as 5.7 L/100 km.

Unmatched Luxury and Technology

BMW has the technology and luxury features in the BMW X6 to turn the cockpit into a VIP lounge. Normally we would chalk this up to hype, but when you review the standard and available features, they aren't too far off. When it comes to your listening pleasure, there are few SUVs, let alone cars, available that have a better available sound system. The Bang & Olufsen surround sound system features 16 loudspeakers with a 1200 watts output including a centre speaker that is equipped with Acoustic Lens Technology that allows for the best sound quality no matter where you are sitting. Other luxury and hi-tech features in the 2018 BMW X6 include:

  • 40:20:40 divisible rear seat backrest
  • Contactless opening and closing of the tailgate
  • Rear-Seat Entertainment Professional with two separate 10.2-inch colour monitors
  • Soft Nappa leather instrument panel
  • Leather/Alcantara interior trims
  • BMW ConnectedDrive
  • BMW Head-Up Display that projects images as if they were 2.3 m in front of the vehicle
