BMW X6 – A Different Experience


This is the type of car that people either love or hate, and in my case I was slightly confused. I was in Dubai/Abu Dhabi for a few days and I asked for a Audi Q7 but to complications they gave me an X6 instead which is an upgrade with 300bhp V6. I wasn’t sure about it but I always wanted to try it, and it was an interesting machine to drive. For being the lowest model the car still moved, it had all the options on the interior and black as night windows. I haven’t driven an X5 in probably 8 years at least so this was a new machine to me, and I was always curious about the X6 M, people always had an opinion about the X6, they either loved it or hated it, it was always a passionate reaction.


The car was comfortable and the standard BMW amenities which did the job and on a long drive it was pretty comfortable honestly. The Navigation was really good and this time around you can go directly to each menu from buttons around the circular joystick, you don’t have to navigate all the menus to get to where you want. I think BMW have gotten better at that then before. I still find Audi a bit easier to use, but still the BMW system is really good. The car felt a bit weird, like you were driving a sports car but a bit higher and every time I bumped my head into the door frame when getting in, its an SUV with a compact form, just didn’t feel right. It was an interesting drive, but I would never buy this car.

X6 M

I have always liked the styling of the X6, it has gotten a very large mix of opinions people either love the car or hate the car. Peronsally I think its a well designed SUV with a low center of gravity. I like how it looks, even though I think it needs a different set of rims, I heard the V8 version is very fast, and now that they came up with the X6 M thats just ridiculous.

Now they have a boosted the 4.4 Liter V8 to a 555 bhp with 500 lb-ft of torque. Its probably ridiculously fast and handles very well for an SUV, it seems that way from the X6 M track video. Whoever was driving that car was really pushing it.
