EXHILARATION HAS A NAME: X . The X6 is a born performer that will raise eyebrows and then pulse rates – especially the fi rst time you experience curve-grabbing, acceleration-boosting Dynamic Performance Control. BMW’s TwinPower Turbo engines include the award-winning in-line six-cylinder that propels the X6 xDrive35i with smooth, rapid confi dence; an effi cient 400hp V8 drives the X6 xDrive50i. And now, with the available BMW M Performance Editions, both X6 models harness more horses for unending thrills. Press the accelerator pedal – and hold on.

CONQUER ANY ROAD IN ANY WEATHER. Not all roads are dry and level. That’s good news for the BMW X6. It welcomes challenges, easily tackling wet or rough surfaces, tight corners, steep climbs and steeper downhills. On steep downhill grades, press the Hill Descent Control button to help keep the BMW X6 to a steady crawl without even touching the brakes. Speaking of brakes, Dynamic Stability Control includes four innovative brake-optimizing features. When stopped on a hill, Start-off Assistant helps keep the BMW X6 from rolling after you take your foot off the brake pedal. When you quickly take your foot off the accelerator, Brake Stand-by anticipates the need for a short stop, and pre-tenses the calipers. Whenever moisture is detected, Brake Drying periodically and discreetly brings the brake pads into contact with the rotors to help dry them. And on long, gradual downhill slopes, BMW’s Brake Fade Compensation helps keep your brake pedal action even, so you don’t have to keep increasing brake pressure.

YOU CAN’T THROW IT OFF GUARD. In addition to inventing its own class, the BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupé® brings with it a host of innovative technologies. For example, power distribution is nominally 40% front axle, 60% rear, for balanced handling. However, BMW’s xDrive intelligent All-Wheel Drive technology continuously and greater traction. And Dynamic Performance Control adds a secondary functionality of shifting power between the rear wheels. This helps maintain the sportier driving dynamics associated with rear-wheel-drive vehicles, so you get the best of both worlds: sporty road feel combined with pavement-hugging traction. It’s an idea that perfectly fits the BMW X6.


CONNECTIVITY THAT STANDS APART. Keep totally informed and in touch at all times. Everyday driving is now easier and more assured, thanks to BMW ConnectedDrive features that provide you with vital up-to-the-second information. Gain a bird’s-eye view of your surroundings when parking with Rear-view and Top-view Cameras. Driver assistance systems, such as Active Cruise Control and Lane Departure Warning, help you reach your destination safely. A Head-up Display helps you keep your eyes focused on the road by streaming relevant data, such as speed, Navigation System instructions and warning messages from the driver assistance systems, directly onto the windshield. And, should something unforeseen occur while en route, BMW Assist™ will automatically make an emergency call while giving emergency services your accurate position.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT. BMW Effi cientDynamics: innovations in sustainability. The BMW X makes it clear at a glance: compromise is not an option. That’s why, thanks to BMW Effi cientDynamics technology, the X is able to balance its great power with high effi ciency and low emissions. The X ’s in-line six and V TwinPower Turbo engines make use of BMW’s Valvetronic variable intake engine technology that helps engines “breathe” better. This, combined with High Precision Direct Injection technology, virtually eliminates turbo lag while delivering one of the most fuel-effi cient ratings in both engine classes. BMW Effi cientDynamics’ measures extend to the  -speed transmission that effi ciently maximizes engine power; intelligent lightweight construction that shaves fuel-consuming excess pounds; environmentally compatible manufacturing and recycling techniques; and Brake Energy Regeneration technology, which makes practical use of the kinetic energy normally wasted when braking or coasting. Add in the myriad other inspired Effi cientDynamics technologies and it’s no wonder BMW has been internationally recognized for industry-leading environmental sustainability, year after year.

Daring designs: futuristic boats and the BMW X .

A bold innovator in yacht design, Milan-born Luca Bassani Antivari’s seminal concepts from the early     s, initially derided, are now global design icons.

DR AMATICALLY DIFFERENT: MISTER WALLY. His debut motor yacht, the    -foot,   ,   hp Wallypower, surges from Monaco to Portofi no in a short one and a half hours. Once there, you enjoy your aperitif – not on the stuffy afterdeck, but on the foredeck, cooled by the evening breeze – another of Bassani’s ideas. As for the prism-shape superstructure, that was actually sketched by Bassani’s children. It was their vision of a cool boat for Batman. Ever since Luca Bassani Antivari breezed in with his fi rst futuristic   -foot racing vessel, there have really been only two types of ultraexclusive yachts: the traditional and the Wally. The latter is already an icon of our time, synonymous with cool, clever modernity. Bassani,   , is a bold nonconformist who exudes a surprisingly quiet certainty. Every gesture says, “I’m on exactly the right track.” The name of his Monaco-based company is also surprising. You have to be fairly laid back to name your business after an American comic strip character. But it all makes sense because Bassani’s boats always surprise with their unusual character and technical solutions. For example, the    -foot two-master Wallygator II has an unusually wide stern and a special anchor management system in the centre. We meet in a north Italian boatyard, the bare structure of Bassani’s third Wally standing inverted in front of us. Bassani’s creations are audacious, surprising and refreshingly different. It’s easy to think that Bassani is being provocative on purpose with the daring simplicity of his boats. But Wally is not different for its own sake. “Wally is a way of looking at things,” he says. “A way of considering what is really needed on the water and fi nding new solutions.”

Clearly, Bassani likes to get to the heart of matters in his own particular way. And when this charming provocateur does anything, he does it with utter conviction. The Wallypower stands as a design icon and even became a fi lm star in the science fi ction movie, The Island. It also became the prototype for his motor yacht range, from the new   -foot WallyOne to a   -foot, four-cabin rocket capable of   knots. It’s easy to see why Bassani enjoys his BMW X , with its focus on driving pleasure and strong individual presence. He can even imagine a lighter version of the vehicle – one that uses the composite-fi ber technology used on his boats. “Ultimately,” he says, “a car has to be like a boat: to give enjoyment, look good and drive well. Otherwise it doesn’t interest me.”


The initial Wallypower sketch was a drawing of a Batman boat done by Bassani’s children. Bassani’s boats are not different for effect. Their differences are their strengths.

PROGRESSIVE OUTLOOK? WE’RE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY. Tailored to your needs. With this vehicle you are always the focal point. Consider the interior of the new BMW X with its clear driver orientation. As soon as you get behind the sport leather steering wheel, you will fi nd not only the multifunction buttons, but also the gearshift paddles of the  -speed sport automatic transmission. As in motor sport, you can change gears in split seconds without taking your hands from the wheel. Furthermore, all vehicle functions are displayed on the optimally positioned Control Display. And while the raised seating position gives a clear overview, this can be increased still further by the optional BMW Head-up Display. This projects all driving information directly into your fi eld of vision. It means you can keep your eyes on the road – and maintain a progressive outlook in every sense.

22 23 Interior design



Luxury every day. You have to hand it to the BMW designers: they truly understand the concept of comfort. The BMW X offers a spacious interior that seats up to fi ve, with a surprising amount of leg- and headroom for both the front and back seats. And while some all-wheel-drive vehicles may favour utility over luxury, the BMW X impresses with a wealth of premium interior features, such as supple leather upholstery and exotic Dark Bamboo trim. So no matter what the scenery outside offers, the view of the cabin is always fi rst-rate.

BMW ConnectedDrive In touch with your world.

BMW CONNECTED DRIVE – FOR MORE CONVENIENCE, INFOTAINMENT AND SAFETY. Wherever the road may take you, you’ll always be in touch, thanks to BMW ConnectedDrive. These advanced safety, convenience and infotainment capabilities make any trip easier and more pleasurable than ever before.

Every day, our world is becoming increasingly networked. Many BMW drivers, however, are better connected than the rest, obtaining information on the road, communicating by phone or email, and always updated on the latest events. BMW ConnectedDrive encompasses all these services, including traffi c features that allow BMW vehicles and their occupants to network with the outside world. Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go function and Front Collision Warning System lets you preset both desired speed and following distance. When Active Cruise Control recognizes slower vehicles ahead, it reduces your speed to maintain a preset distance. Once the lane ahead becomes free, the system accelerates up to the desired speed. In slow-moving traffi c, Stop & Go can bring you to a complete stop, if needed. The Front Collision Warning System alerts you if your vehicle is in danger of running into the vehicle ahead. If necessary, the brake system also prepares to engage. Even when not using the Active Cruise Control technology, the Front Collision Warning System is still active. Top-, Side- and Rear-view Cameras around the vehicle show the surroundings on the Control Display, for enhanced visibility. The Top-view Camera provides a bird’s-eye view of the road alongside the doors. These images, taken by cameras positioned in the exterior mirrors, help guide you when manoeuvering in tight spaces. Side-view Cameras in the front bumpers show traffi c approaching the front of the vehicle from the sides, such as when exiting a garage. The Rear-view Camera, located behind the BMW badge on the trunk lid, shows the area behind the vehicle. Working with Park Distance Control, interactive guidelines indicate if the vehicle can fi t in a parking space, and display parking trajectories and turn angles. BMW Head-up Display. The BMW Head-up Display allows you to always keep the traffi c situation in view in the new BMW X . Relevant information is projected onto a two-colour TFT display directly in the driver’s fi eld of vision. The BMW Head-up Display shows, for example, your speed and navigation instructions. Please note: Speed Limit Information display not available in Canada.

Lane Departure Warning. At speeds above around   km/h, the optional Lane Departure Warning system registers lane markings ahead, up to a distance of   metres. If the vehicle threatens to move out of the lane, the system warns the driver with a slight vibration of the steering wheel. If the driver has activated the indicator – meaning that the lane change is intentional – no warning is given. Enhanced mobile networking. The BMW Vision ConnectedDrive is a visionary Roadster whose amazing design goes far deeper than its dynamic, fl owing lines. Three levels in the interior each symbolize a facet of BMW ConnectedDrive – Convenience, Infotainment and Safety; accompanying functions and controls are highlighted with different coloured lights that illuminate information. An extraordinary synthesis of exterior and interior style and substance, the BMW Vision ConnectedDrive points the way to a mobile networking future.

26 27 BMW ConnectedDrive

High-beam assistant. The optional High-beam assistant recognizes light sources in the car’s environment and switches the high beam on and off, according to the traffi c situation. When the system is active, an image sensor at the back of the interior mirror monitors the traffi c and lighting conditions. Based on these sensor images, the assistant decides whether or not the high beam should be switched on. When it detects vehicles ahead, or fi nds that ambient light is suffi cient, the high beam is switched off again.

BMW EfficientDynamics Less emissions. More driving pleasure.

BMW was one of the fi rst automotive manufacturers to pursue effi cient driving technologies – one part of our award-winning sustainability strategy. BMW Effi cientDynamics represents the most comprehensive package of innovative technologies currently in production for reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Our commitment to Effi cientDynamics means we are continuously developing innovative systems that bring us closer to our long-term goal of emissions-free mobility. Since     BMW has been able to reduce the CO emissions of its entire fl eet by approximately   percent, and intends to achieve a further   percent reduction by     . However, we remain committed to driving pleasure, which is being pursued in different ways. BMW is passionate about researching and developing systems that ensure advanced and effi cient mobility. Which is why the BMW X , like every BMW, comes with comprehensive, multi-award-winning BMW Effi cientDynamics technology. BMW Effi cientDynamics innovations reduce fuel consumption and CO emissions while maximizing engine output and dynamic performance. Less fuel, more driving pleasure – a contradiction that BMW has resolved once and for all.

Eco-friendly technology. The development of more effi cient vehicles powered by conventional diesel and gasoline engines continues. A comprehensive technology directive enables the reduction of fuel consumption and emissions while at the same time increasing power output and driving enjoyment. These advances are based on innovations such as BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, Brake Energy Regeneration, Air Curtain front apron design, and many others. BMW ActiveHybrid. With the BMW ActiveHybrid  , ActiveHybrid  and ActiveHybrid  , BMW has impressive hybrid production models in its line. All combine outstanding effi ciency with superlative dynamic ability. BMW i. The BMW i brand will launch two completely new vehicle concepts for sustainable mobility in an urban environment. Key features of the BMW i and BMW i include the use of lightweight materials such as carbon-fi ber-reinforced plastic (CFRP), electric drive systems, powerful battery technology and eco-friendly production methods. Both the BMW i and i launch in     and are an important part of Effi cientDynamics technologies.  

THE BMW X SPORTS ACTIVITY COUPÉ.® BMW EFFICIENT DYNAMICS INNOVATIONS. BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. Benefi ting from BMW’s innovative twin-scroll turbocharging technology that reclaims the energy contained in exhaust gases, the X engines deliver quick acceleration while virtually eliminating turbo lag.

 -speed sport automatic transmission. This transmission provides extremely fast shifting in both automatic and STEPTRONIC shift modes. By increasing the number of gears to eight, the transmission provides a more effi cient shifting sequence and improved fuel economy.

High Precision Direct Injection. In this latest-generation direct fuel injection system, the piezo injectors are positioned very close to the spark plugs. They inject fuel at high pressure, with extreme precision, for very effi cient combustion.

Brake Energy Regeneration. With Brake Energy Regeneration, the alternator generates electricity only when the driver takes his or her foot off the accelerator. The kinetic energy that was previously unharnessed is transformed into electrical energy, which is then fed into the battery. In this way, electricity is generated without consuming fuel.

Double-VANOS valve timing. BMW’s VANOS valve timing system “steplessly” varies the points in the combustion cycle when valves open and close. Double-VANOS refers to the fact that it operates on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. Electronically controlled in response to engine speed, temperature and load, it reduces emissions, and enhances low- to medium-speed torque, as well as fuel effi ciency. Valvetronic. BMW’s Valvetronic valve control system improves engine response and refi nement, while also helping to reduce fuel consumption. The system helps the engine “breathe” better by providing fully variable lift adjustment of the inlet valves. 30 31 BMW EfficientDynamics

IT ALL REVOLVES AROUND YOU. SEVERAL THOUSAND TIMES PER MINUTE. Engines that power innovation. Year after year, BMW engines have garnered accolades for their output, refi nement and high-revving ability. Beneath the hood of the X xDrive  i and X xDrive  i are two of the world’s most sophisticated engines.

THE FEELING OF DRIVING THE BMW X IS SIMPLY INCREDIBLE. LIKE THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND IT. The formula sounds simple: a near-perfect   /  weight distribution between the front and rear axles. Yet few other makes have ever been able to duplicate this balance. BMW’s engineers also have conjured similar triumphs in neutral steering properties, directional stability and traction control. A lightweight multi-link integral rear suspension and wide track improve the responsiveness of the dampers, providing a more comfortable ride. Here are some more advanced technologies that combine to make the BMW X such a powerful presence on the road. Every BMW vehicle is engineered to provide the most thrilling and precise connection to the road. This is achieved through innovative axle technologies that increase stiffness front and rear, while reducing weight through the use of lightweight aluminum components. The BMW X ’s near-perfect   /  weight distribution offers strikingly well-balanced road feel, with responsive characteristics virtually unmatched by any competitor on the road today.

Active Steering. This system delivers greater driving enjoyment with even more direct steering when cornering, and greater agility on twisty sections of road. At low and moderate speeds, it takes just two turns of the steering wheel to move the front wheels from far left to far right. When the steering wheel is turned the same amount at higher speeds, the steering ratio gradually changes, providing greater directional stability and more comfortable cruising. Dynamic Performance Control. Where xDrive All-Wheel Drive can send available power from the rear to the front, Dynamic Performance Control smoothly apportions available power between the rear wheels. When cornering, Dynamic Performance Control sends more power to the outside rear wheel, enabling the vehicle to “turn in” with less understeer. Minimizing understeer (the tendency to plow through a turn) lets you make tight turns and corner with confi dence.

34 35 Advanced driving technologies

Adaptive Drive. The Adaptive Drive system (optional) combines the two active chassis control systems: Active Roll Stabilization (ARS) and Dynamic Damper Control (DDC). In corners, the vehicle’s body tends to roll, affecting handling characteristics. ARS twists specially designed two-piece anti-roll bars to generate stronger resistance to body roll, keeping the vehicle more level and providing maximum stability and agility. DDC, on the other hand, instantly and continuously adjusts the shock absorbers from the softest to the fi rmest settings. The result is exceptional riding comfort and fl uid handling at all times, during changes in vehicle speed, load or road and driving conditions. Hill Descent Control (HDC). This feature helps the BMW X drive down steep hills without having to “ride the brake.” By pressing the HDC button, the system keeps the X ’s speed under control automatically.

 -speed sport automatic transmission. This transmission adjusts to your style – from comfortable cruising to very dynamic driving. To change gears, you can use the selector lever or steering wheel-mounted gear shift paddles. In Sport mode, modifi ed clutch settings allow very quick adjustments in engine speed, for minimal shift times. The close spacing of the eight gears optimizes acceleration, while also maximizing effi ciency and comfortable shifting. xDrive. Even when driving on wet roads, over slippery leaves, snow and ice – regardless of the road surface quality – the xDrive intelligent All-Wheel Drive system and Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) give you road-gripping stability and outstanding traction. xDrive reacts immediately upon detecting over- or understeer, and employs an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch to redistribute drivepower between axles in just fractions of a second.

HIGH-TECH BODYGUARDS: ACTIVE AND PASSIVE SAFETY FEATURES. The X is equipped with BMW’s full range of state-of-the-art active and passive safety technologies. Active safety features, such as Xenon Adaptive Headlights, powerful engines and large brakes, help you see and respond to potentially dangerous situations. Should an accident prove unavoidable, passive safety features, such as airbags and an extremely stiff body, are designed to help protect you and your passengers. After a severe impact, a host of features spring into action: the doors automatically unlock, headlights and taillights fl ash, the starter cable is disconnected from the battery and the fuel supply is cut off. Should any airbags deploy, BMW Assist™ response specialists are automatically alerted and notifi ed of your location.

Dynamic Stability Control (DSC). This system provides remarkable tenacity on slippery road surfaces. If it senses over- or understeer, it modulates engine power and can apply brakes individually to help keep the vehicle under control and going in the intended direction. Start-off Assistant, a feature of DSC, prevents the vehicle from rolling backward on a hill for  . seconds after taking your foot off the brake. The system also includes Brake Fade Compensation, which lets you use the same amount of pedal force, even when the brakes are heated; Brake Stand-by, which pre-tenses the brakes for quicker action if you suddenly remove your foot from the accelerator pedal; and Brake Drying, which periodically brings the brake pads into contact with the rotors to eliminate accumulated moisture when it rains.

Airbags. Six airbags are designed to deploy only as needed in the event of a collision: one front- and side-impact airbag each for the driver and front passenger, and Head Protection System (HPS) airbags at the sides of the front and rear cabin to help protect all occupants. Active Head Restraints. Mounted in the front seats, they reduce the risk of whiplash or neck/head/spine injury. When sensors detect a rear-end collision, the headrests rapidly and automatically pivot forward, supporting the driver’s and front-seat occupant’s heads. Note: These pictures of airbags are for illustrative purposes only. Depending upon the type of accident, none, some or all airbags may deploy.

36 37 Safety features

Tire Pressure Monitor. This feature alerts you when there is a sudden and irregular drop in tire pressure. Should the target pressure of a tire fall below   %, both a warning light and acoustic alarm are triggered. Run-flat tires. Thanks to reinforced sidewalls, run-flat tires maintain their shape and rim position even after suffering a complete loss of tire pressure. They allow you to continue driving at a reduced speed until you reach a safe area to change a tire or wait for Roadside Assistance.

Dynamic Performance Control. The X flexibly distributes drive force between the wheels of the rear axle. This active distribution of power increases agility in corners and makes steering even more precise. The overall result is a noticeable increase in sportiness and optimum driving dynamics.

Extremely rigid body. The BMW X features a protective safety cell that directs severe impact forces around the passenger compartment. Thanks to BMW’s intelligent lightweight design and the use of highstrength steels, the interior passenger compartment is surrounded by a remarkably strong shell.

Impact-absorbing bumpers. These, and compressible “crush tubes” front and rear, help absorb the force of impact in collisions up to   km/h, minimizing damage to the vehicle’s body and simplifying repairs. Only at higher impact speeds do structural supports begin to deform, dissipating impact energy to help protect occupants.

Xenon Adaptive Headlights. These low and high beams enhance illumination of the road ahead at night or in poor visibility. Four LED Corona headlight-rings, which can be used as Daytime Running Lights, also serve as parking lights. Adaptive Headlights automatically swivel to follow the curves of the road. Light distribution is automatically adapted to the road speed and steering angle.

Active Steering. This system adjusts both steering ratio and steering force in relation to driving speed. At low to medium speeds, a small turn of the steering wheel translates into a big turn of the front wheels. You enjoy more agility in city driving, quicker turns on twisting roads, and easier parking manoeuvers. At higher speeds, a larger turn of the steering wheel is needed to turn the front wheels, resulting in greater straight-line stability.

Cornering Lights. Positioned in the two inner headlights, Cornering Lights are automatically activated by using the turn indicator or changing the steering wheel angle, even when the vehicle is at rest.

BMW INDIVIDUAL. THE EXCLUSIVE WAY TO DRIVE A BMW. For those who dream of a vehicle that refl ects their own unique personality, there is BMW Individual. The BMW Individual collection of exclusive paints, leathers and trims takes the BMW X to greater heights of quality and exclusivity. Only the finest, perfectly matched materials are selected to create each expertly handcrafted interior. BMW Individual exterior colours are noted for their brilliant, iridescent effects. One dramatic example is the Ruby Black Metallic paint finish. Under the light, it develops a dark red luminosity that seems to emanate from countless ruby pigments. Watching a BMW Individual X in Azurite Black Metallic move through light and shadow is reminiscent of being at sea, as the deep blue swells reflect and hide the sun. Citrin Black Metallic combines black-tie elegance with the warmth of golden light. And Pearl Silver Metallic evokes the shimmering, luminous beauty of pearls. BMW Individual Full Merino Leather looks enticingly soft and velvety, and feels sumptuous. Its secret lies in a painstaking selection process: only absolutely flawless hides are approved for use. As a result, these premium leathers do not require surface treatment. By leaving the leather in its natural state, it retains its breathable, porous structure, remaining soft and supple. All the available Full Merino Leather colours in the BMW Individual X – Platinum, Champagne, and Criollo Brown – are designed to complement and harmonize with BMW Individual paint finishes.

Experience BMW Individual interactive with the BMW Individual iPad® App.

Sumptuous Criollo Brown Full Merino Leather adds a rich note to the interior.

A tour de force of Old World craftsmanship: Champagne Full Merino Leather upholstery.

BMW Individual trims have their own magic. Whether you choose Woven Leather, Eucalyptus Red Brown Wood or Piano Black Wood trim, our strict selection process and perfect finishing techniques ensure excellent quality. In creating the Piano Black Wood interior trim, for example, superior craftsmanship is an essential ingredient. In fact, its brilliant, high-gloss surface is the result of a special process usually applied only by the world’s leading piano makers.
