Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India at the launch of the new BMW X6 in Bangalore
German luxury carmaker BMW launched the new X6 in India. Positioned as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC), the BMW X6 is available at all BMW dealerships across India as CBU (Completely Built-Up) units. The ex-showroom price of the BMW X6 xDrive40d is Rs 1,15,00,000.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “BMW established the Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) segment with the introduction of BMW X6 and continues its remarkable success story. The BMW X6 was the first of its kind and the second generation once again perfectly combines quintessential BMW X qualities with elegance of a BMW coupe. The all-new BMW X6 with the M Sport package sees BMW once again setting the benchmark for extravagant, emotive design, luxurious interiors and extensive customisation options. The sporty exterior of a coupe and equally impressive dynamism and agility makes the all-new BMW X6 the most attractive and distinctive car both on the road and off the beaten track.”
The 2015 BMW X6 is available in Alpine White as non-metallic paintwork and in the following four metallic paintworks: Carbon Black, Flamenco Red Brilliant Effect, Space Grey and Mineral White.
Philipp von Sahr, President, BMW Group India said, “Luxury has always been written with an X. To the very last detail, the all-new BMW X6 offers a unique synthesis of luxury, sporting dynamics and powerful style creating an excitingly different driving experience for our customers. The superior handling characteristics and thrilling driving dynamics bends the laws of physics, instantly propelling this exceptional vehicle to its rightful position as the king of the road.”
The dynamic design of the new BMW X6 perfectly combines quintessential BMW X qualities with the athletic elegance of a BMW Coupe. The front view is dominated by a wide kidney grille and large front air inlets with horizontal chrome trims, horizontal lines along with rear L-shaped taillights with three –dimensional LED Adaptive Light banks emphasise the wide stance and convey a powerful, solid appearance.
The interior features BMW’s driver oriented design of the cockpit, the innovative control and display elements, elevated seating position and lines which streak dynamically from the instrument panel into the door panels to form a ring around the interior. Special interior colours, exclusive trims and standard Dakota or optional Nappa leather upholstery.
BMW X6 is also surprisingly spacious. With the seat backrest in an upright position, the luggage compartment in the BMW X6 offers 580 litres of storage space. Depending on various requirements, the three sections of the backrests can be folded down in a 40:20:40 split and offer 1,525 litres of luggage space when all three sections are folded down.
The Driving Experience Control included as standard comes with an ECO PRO mode which enables additional fuel-saving features such as a coasting function ECO PRO Route, Active Cruise Control and Route –Ahead Assistant (only with Navigation System Professional).
The BMW TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder in-line diesel engine produces 317 PS and a maximum torque of 600 Nm at 1,500 – 2500 rpm and accelerates from 0-100 kmph in just 5.8 seconds and achieves a top speed of 240 kmph. The engine is mated to a new eight-speed sport automatic transmission. The driver can also take over manual control or gear changes using shift paddles.
The intelligent BMW xDrive four-wheel drive system adapts perfectly to even the most challenging road surface conditions, ensuring traction at all times. Split-second response times allow xDrive to distribute drive power flexibly between the two axles for optimum grip. In this way, xDrive combines the advantages of all-wheel drive – traction, directional stability and safety – with classic BMW agility.
Safety features in the 2015 BMW X6 include six airbags, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) including Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Hill Descent Control (HDC), side-impact protection, electronic vehicle immobiliser and crash sensor.

Systems such as the high-definition, full-colour BMW Head-Up Display, BMW Selective Beam, the intelligent emergency call with accident severity detection, optional BMW Night Vision with Dynamic light Spot, high-end Surround Sound system from Harmon Kardon and BMW apps define the benchmark in its class.
The all-new BMW X6 comes with the M Sports Package as a standard which further accentuates its athletic appearance. Even the M-style car key arouses anticipation for a dynamic driving experience. Its striking air inlets on the front and the rear aprons, along with the tailpipe trim in high gloss chrome and pronounced side sills are perfectly complemented by the 19-inch double-spoke style light alloy wheels with mixed tyres. The M Leather steering wheel features particularly convenient multifunction buttons and integrated gearshift paddles, while the door sill finishes with M logo. Comfort seats at the front in Dakota leather, Exclusive Nappa leather and BMW Individual extended fine-grain Merino leather upholstery are also available. The interior trim are available in American Oak, Fineline Stripe, Poplar Grain fine wood trim. This vigorous look is rounded off by the BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite.

In addition the interior is defined by two-tone upholstery in Nappa leather with contrast stitching available in either Cognac/Black or Ivory white/Black, Leather upholstered door panels and instrument panels with contrast stitching.
