BMW X6 M E71. performance characteristics. test drive. photo

BMW has always impressed with its highest quality. The BMW X6M E71, which was presented to the public for the first time in April 2009, became an excellent result of the long and fertile work of the concern.

BMW X6 M is a business class car that can be classified as a mid-size car in a fairly practical and sporty body.

Its uniqueness was that it embodied all the technical characteristics of an SUV, namely, increased ground clearance, large wheels, a powerful engine and, of course, all-wheel drive.

The main external distinguishing feature of the X5 is the presence of a noticeable slope of the rear part of the roof.

In general, X6 M can hardly be attributed to any particular type. And probably the most suitable classification would be. a hatchback with increased ground clearance and an extraordinary roof shape.

For the development of this model, the BMW concern had to pay a fairly high price, but this was very justified, since, despite the economic crisis existing at that time, the car enjoyed great success and significantly high demand.


The turbocharger and catalytic converter are located between the two cylinder banks providing a spontaneous and direct response so characteristic of M series vehicles.

Despite its excellent dynamics, the crossover offers the highest level of efficiency in its segment thanks to the combination of EfficientDynamics technology.

The developers have made great emphasis on improving the safety system: the car was equipped with airbags for the driver, passengers and side airbags. The anti-lock braking system was also improved, and to ensure a more confident ride on the road, exchange rate stability and emergency braking systems were installed on the car.

All interiors have been finished in wood grain, matched with standard leather upholstery.

Additional advantages are an adjustable steering column, electric front seats, an on-board computer, a navigation system, a rain sensor, climate control and a rear view camera.

The second version of the X6 M in the new F86 body was first introduced in 2014.
