Ottawa Auto Show: 2015 BMW X6

Published on March 19 2015

''With fuel efficiency and a dynamic drive in such an attractive package, the brand new BMW X6 seems to have it all.''

When the BMW X6 first hit the industry about five years ago, it was met with mixed emotions. Some adored the coupe-like nature of the SUV’s stance, while others found it confusing. Since then, the BMW X6 has gone through some growing pains, and has come out all-new for 2015. 

The design features of the BMW X6 combine the muscular stance of an X vehicle with the sleek and sophisticated lines of a coupe. An athletic and broad build coupled with a curvy silhouette help the BMW X6 straddle the line between sport and utility vehicle. 

New for 2015 is an increase in the BMW X6 xDrive50i’s performance numbers, which sit at 445 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque derived from the TwinPower 4.4L V8. The X6 model lineup also offers up a TwinPower turbocharged 6-cylinder mill that pushes out 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Both the xDrive35i and xDrive50i feature BMW’s renowned AWD system, and engine power is controlled via an 8-speed Steptronic sport transmission.   

As sporty and athletic as the 2015 BMW X6 looks, it’s not all about speed and performance. There’s also a nifty little feature called the ECO PRO mode, which ensures optimal performance from the engine and can reduce fuel consumption by up to 20%. Besides a coasting function that decouples the drivetrain from the engine when the throttle is not engaged at speeds between 50 and 160 km/h, ECO PRO will also work with the navigation system to show you the most fuel-efficient route you can take based on satellite traffic knowledge. 

With fuel efficiency and a dynamic drive in such an attractive package, the brand new BMW X6 seems to have it all. Add to that the interior refinement and comfort of a German luxury vehicle, and this SAV checks all the right boxes.
