New BMW X6
Prices for the new BMW X6 start at £41,955 and finish at £44,135 (excl X6 xDrive50i). The xDrive50i will do 0-60seconds in around 5.2seconds, will achieve a top speed of 155mph(limited) and will fetch you 34 miles to the gallon. The Standard safety features included on the X6 are twin front, side and curtain airbags, BAS, Dynamic Performance Control, DSC+ stability control and ISOFIX child seat mounts.
There are two diesel engines, the xDrive30d good for 235bhp which is enough to get it to 60mph in 7.8 seconds, and the xDrive35d’s 286bhp capable of punting the X6 to 60 in just 6.7 seconds and onto 147mph. Go petrol and there’s the 306bhp xDrive35i and the 408bhp xDrive50i.
The pricing certainly looks aggressive, with the entry level X6 xDrive30d weighing in at £41,955, or around £1,500 more than the equivalent-engined X5. Go for the xDrive35d and you’ll need to find £44,135, while the petrol-engined xDrive35i costs £42,625. Quite what to compare these prices to is not straightforward, but the X6 will probably have to fend off both more traditional 4x4 models as well as other four seat coupes.
