Inside the X 6 has always been a strong point, and the cabin redesigned for 2015 is even better than before. With a screen size of 10.2 inches screen placed in the upper part of the central Panel, a new cluster of electronic gauge and sophisticated look trim and upholstered, BMW has there are shortcuts when it is in here. The soft iDrive and attractive interface works well to control and adjust all systems in the X 6, but in our experience, it usually takes a few more clicks and turns on the control button to get what she wants; some rival systems are easy to use.
Front-seat passengers both knee padding exclusive would be the X 6 reinforcement along the center console (a feature of the X 5 does not have) and the deep pockets of door for bottles of drinks of oversize and other sources. Perhaps most important is the extra leg room and space in the back seat, which now has capacity for three through the configuration by default. Inside and outside of the seat back can be a bit of an event. The sloping rear roof requires most adults to duck down there is a lot of climbing, while also maneuvering around the arch to the rear wheelwell. Once inside, the extra space in the model of this year is remarkable, but space will continue to be a problem for most passengers. And in an SUV that comes close to six figures with the options, we have rear seats that can recline, too.
The insistence of BMW in performance and suspension adjustment helps high-end hardware to 2015 BMW X 6 the gap between a sport sedan and stretched a large crossover, high horse. The X 6 has a smooth ride on uneven surfaces, but can also switch to Sport mode for a stiffer driving experience, more tense. Handling and steering are acute (especially for a large vehicle), but there is a minimum feedback through the wheel. The X 6 can be carried out quickly, but it is a very rewarding experience. One of the clearest achievements of the size of the X 6 produces on difficult roads, where they discover that the x 6 is small, without light.
However, his sense of 2015 X 6 is considerable size will be deleted quickly by the brilliant performance of the six cylinders in line and V8 engines. The six-cylinder turbo historically fast should be sufficient for most, especially from the ngreme for the x 6 xDrive 50i is due almost entirely to the engine under the hood. Then again, than an engine: planting accelerator on an open road and seems that twin – turbo 4.4-liter V8 would be out of place in a locomotive, like the X 6 with supreme authority, regardless of the driving situation.
