TRIPLE TURBO JOINS BMW X6 LINE-UP
THE X6 is arguably the most controversial model that BMW has ever brought us. Part luxury SUV, part sports coupé, it divides opinion and has sold strongly. This improved model line-up gets a smarter look, extra equipment and, most importantly, a desirable 381bhp triple-turbo diesel engine, which is tested here.
All X6 models feature four-wheel drive and an innovative Dynamic Performance Control set-up. This is one of the only stability control systems in the world able to provide a stabilising effect when you get out of shape in a corner, whether or not you have your foot on the throttle.
That's standard, but an extra cost option it's probably worth looking at is the Active Steering system that makes this car notably more agile and goes well with the very firm ride. The X6's styling has been tweaked, but not so you'd really notice. A broader front kidney grille and repositioned foglights both attempt to further accentuate the already prodigious width.
Inside, positioned behind the beautifully grippy leather-trimmed steering wheel with its lovely gearshift paddles, you sit on beautifully supportive seats that are mounted a little lower than you might expect in a large luxury SUV.

The really tall may well feel a little cramped in the back. BMW has contoured the roof though to make the best of what's on offer and as a result, averagely-sized adults should be quite comfortable, enjoying decent leg and elbow-room. All models in the line-up come with a healthy list of standard equipment that includes 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlamps, metallic paint, chromed exhaust pipes, leather trim, two-zone climate control, part electric seat adjustment, cruise control, auto headlamps and wipers, a six-speaker stereo system and a 6.5-inch colour display screen with iDrive controller.
But of course you can go a lot further than that. Options include an engine compartment lid with a strikingly-shaped power dome, Vermilion Red leather upholstery and for family buyers, a three-person rear bench.
Safety-wise, you'll find all the usual electronic assistance features for traction, braking and stability control, plus several upgrade options.
