Muscat: The BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupé created a new market segment when it was launched in 2008. More than 150,000 X6 vehicles have been sold worldwide in just three years — proving the popularity of this unique vehicle which has set a trend in the automotive industry, and has now been upgraded with the new model arriving in the showrooms of Al Jenaibi International Automobiles — the official importer of BMW Group in Oman.
The new BMW X6 includes a number of exterior changes, enhancing the athletic appearance of BMW's original sports activity coupé. A new front end with a wider chrome frame and revised bars on the large kidney grille and fog lights, set towards the edge of the car, highlight its wide track and stable road-holding.
As an alternative to the standard bi-xenon lights, adaptive LED headlights — a modern interpretation of BMW's twin circular headlights — are now available as an option complementing the new front end.
At the rear is a revised red light cluster, enhancing the lines of the car with two horizontal LED glowing bars, further emphasising the width of the vehicle. In addition, a raised power dome bonnet appears on the new X6 giving the car a more aggressive and sportier look.
A host of new colour and trim options are available including three new metallic paint colours: marrakesh brown, orion silver and midnight blue — and two new upholstery trims: ivory white exclusive Nappa leather and vermillion red Nevada leather. This new look BMW X6 is completed with bi-colour double spoke design 20 inch alloy wheels.
The petrol engines with BMW Twin Power Turbo Technology available for the BMW X6 deliver impressive pulling power and low fuel consumption figures.
The V8 engine of the BMW X6 x Drive50i delivers 407hp, while in the BMW X6 x Drive35i an in-line six-cylinder petrol engine with 306hp. Engine power in both models is transferred by means of a standard eight-speed sports transmission including shift paddles on the wheel.
