Benefits of Driving a 2012 BMW X6 M Sport Utility Crossover

Premiering in 2009 and marketed as a 'Sport Activity Coupe', the X6 is based on the X5 and adeptly combines the sportiness of a coupe with the practicality of an SUV. Quick for its size and height, the X6 offers impressive cornering due to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution, wide tires and BMW's Dynamic Performance Control all-wheel drive system.

What's new for 2012?

For 2012, the BMW X6 line sees no major changes. Several enhancements have been made to the list of standard equipment, including standard auto-dimming mirrors, tinted glass, heated front seats and BMW Assist with Bluetooth. A newly optional rear middle seat allows seating for five.

Model Strengths

  • Excellent cornering and handling
  • powerful V8 engine
  • hybrid powertrain available

Model Review

The X6 for 2012 is offered with a choice of several powertrains. The 35i features a turbo-charged 6-cylinder engine rated at 300 horsepower. The 50i utilizes a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 engine capable of 400 horsepower. The hybrid X6 combines the 4.4L V8 with an 84-horsepower electric motor and battery pack, which BMW calls 'ActiveHybrid.' Finally, the X6 M comes with a tuned version of the 4.4L V8, making 555 horsepower.
