Sports Car Performance, Convenience of an AWD SUV
July 19, 2018
The BMW X6, in my opinion, is one of the best all-around SUV's on the market. Not only is it the most stylish and luxurious SUV that BMW makes, it's also the best handling. The X6 XDrive50i comes with a rock-solid, powerful Twin Turbo V8 with an automatic 8-speed transmission that gives power to all 4 tires (AWD) as needed using a special torque control feature only available in this trim (XDrive50i) and the X6M trim - which gives you the ability to take corners much more comfortably, more stable, and faster than 99% of other SUV's. It has the power to get you up to speed quicker than the car beside you, or tow a large boat without noticing a lack of power. The interior is luxurious, with power everything (including seat headrests) and wood/aluminum accents throughout (as you would expect in a $90k suv). The large LCD screen allows you to view a split screen of the navigation GPS and other vehicle features at the same time. The HUD allows you to see vehicle speed and information on the windshield so you don't have to take your eyes off the road. It also has a lane departure warning system which will vibrate the steering wheel if you start to drift into other lanes. At night, the headlights make your life easier by moving in the direction you move the steering wheel, and the windshield wipers turn on automatically if it ever starts to rain. Even as you get out of the car, the doors self-close (soft-close) so you don't even have to bother closing your own doors. There's really no feature BMW didn't think about when building the X6, it's a work of art and a beautifully unique SUV.
