2024 BMW X6 SUV

Side view of 2024 BMW X6 SUV

BMW’s latest X6 SUV is a flash-looking machine.  It is surprisingly peppy for a spacious SUV, it’s safe, and the way it coasts along at a swift pace is wonderfully engaging.  There are three models you can buy in Australia.

BMW xDrive30d M Sport

Ok – yes, I agree – the new X6 is pretty pricey, and it won’t be the cheapest SUV you can find at the car sales yard.  However, a 2024 BMW X6 SUV is BMW at their best, where power, performance, space, and luxury intertwine to produce a sensational good driver’s car.  And the range starts off with the xDrive30d M Sport. 

If you’re spending the sort of money that will get you into SUVs of this price bracket, there is a whole lot of amazing stuff bolted down inside one of these.  For instance, the sports suspension has electronic damper settings and the power steering is electronically assisted and speed sensitive. You have selectable driving modes, an eight-speed automatic gearbox that is Sportronic and boasts paddle shifters on the steering wheel, AWD traction, seven airbags, and a diesel engine boasting hybrid technology that will deliver power in silky unison.  And I haven’t even mentioned any of the features inside the luxury-packed cabin yet! 

Inside the 2024 BMW xDrive30d M Sport SUV, you are cosseted in supportive leather-like seats with electronic memory functions and superb long-distance comfort.  The audio package boasts a 10-speaker stereo equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.  There is wireless device charging, two-zone climate control, and even voice recognition if you like talking to a machine.  There is one driver’s display and one infotainment screen, but the new X6 BMW has cleverly designed them both to seem like you have just one big screen.

For a 3.0-litre turbodiesel SUV, the performance is sprightly.  The BMW X6 xDrive30d capable of sprinting from a standstill to 100 km/h in a smidgeon over 6 seconds: quite the feat for a vehicle weighing in at well over 2.1 tonnes.  Of course, BMW knows all about performance, and this frugal (combined fuel economy of around 7.5–8 litres/100 km) turbodiesel packs 210 kW of power alongside a maximum of 650 Nm of torque.  On the right road, you can tickle a top speed of 233 km/h.  Its smooth refinement makes long distance cruising a joy, and with its strong construction, BMW say that you can tow a braked trailer weighing up to 3.27 tonnes (or a 750 kg unbraked trailer). 

Space is good inside the sporty X6 cabin, and space behind the rear seats is good for holding up to 580 litres of luggage.  The rear seats can be folded down for even more luggage-carrying capacity.  While it doesn’t offer quite the space or practicality of the boxier X5, the X6 isn’t far off in terms of being a nice practical vehicle for family duties.

BMW xDrive40i M Sport

If you want a bit more from your X6 performance equation but are not gunning for the M60i’s stunning performance credentials, then the new BMW xDrive40i M Sport SUV might be just the right model for you.  It runs on premium unleaded fuel, uses hybrid technology to gain power delivery and fuel efficiency, and the price sits sweetly alongside the xDrive30d M Sport’s price, yet quite some distance off the flagship xDrive M60i’s price tag. 

What you can expect from the six-cylinder 3.0-litre turbo motor is a silky-smooth driving experience with plenty of punch when required.  The xDrive40i has a top speed good for 250 km/h, and the 0–100 km/h dash is over in 5.4 seconds. 

In the 40i, a similar level of premium luxury and high-end features that you find in the xDrive30d are offered.  And all three new BMW X6 SUVs come with additional optional packages and upgrades, so you can easily kit out your new X6 just the way you like it. 

BMW xDrive M60i

This is the performance king in the X6 line-up, with 390 kW and 750 Nm at the ready.  You can take this out on the track to make the most of the sublime AWD chassis, immense acceleration, and awesome ride quality.  Its top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h, and the 0–100 km/h time lowers to 4.3 seconds.  There is even a Competition model of the latest X6 available.  So, if you ask nicely and are prepared to pay the dosh, you might get one of these shipped out specially for you.  There is probably a waiting list, mind you! The 0–100 km/h time in the Competition version is an insanely fast 3.9 seconds, which is gobsmacking for a vehicle of this size and weight.

Driver assistance features include the Driving Assistant Professional package, which has some extra features on top of the regular adaptive cruise control (a must with all this performance and refinement). You also get some very nice self-parking technology.

This large coupe-styled SUV has a set of strong engines and seats five adults in comfort.  It looks really cool, and the enormous kidney grille can be made to illuminate.  This is one to enjoy!
