The 3.0 litre, in-line, six-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine
from BMW powers the X6 xDrive40i. It produces 340
horsepower and is paired with an 8-speed torque-converter
automatic transmission, which uses BMW's electronically
controlled xDrive all-wheel-drive system to distribute power to
all four wheels.
The X6 manoeuvres through traffic easily despite its size.
Particularly smooth running 40i engine makes it a joy on the
road. The ZF 8-speed transmission is both silky smooth and
incredibly quick, and it responds positively when you press the
pedal. The BMW even accelerates well when you put your foot
down, winding up the powerband with all the vigour of a
normally aspirated engine, and pushing it all the way to the
redline feels like a true treat
The X6's interior, unsurprisingly, feels and looks like the
majority of other recent BMW models. That indicates that the
dashboard is dominated by two enormous 12.3-inch digital
screens and is covered in high-end materials and soft-touch
surfaces. The gauges are a perplexing muddle, despite the
instrument panel's sleek appearance. Thankfully, the head-up
display is simpler and optional.
The layout of the remaining switchgear is also shrewd. The
infotainment system includes BMW's gesture controls, which
let you operate some features like radio level by waving your
hand in front of the screen. While the back seat is comfortable
for two adults, it has somewhat less boot capacity and shorter
legroom than the boxier X5, which is down by roughly 2 and 3
inches, respectively. But would you really care if you wanted
the luxurious X6?
