Despite falling a bit short in terms of utility, the new 2017 BMW X6 is engaging to drive and is seen as a cross between a high-end coupe and an SUV. Some of the highlights that define it include a comfortable and whisper-quiet ride quality, potent engines, ample storage, and a top-quality interior laden with upscale material and technologies.
The BMW X6 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017 for the USA market.
According to BMW, several updates and changes should be expected to sport the new X6 especially on its interior and exterior facets. Performance wise, however, the new model remains pretty much the same with the same power and torque as before.
Some might argue that the BMW X6 was arguably the first vehicle that changed the way SUVs work in relation to utility. A while ago, crossover SUVs were meant to haul both people and cargo, were-boxy-looking, and had larger dimensions. Now in its second-generation, the X6, redefined the whole concept but falls short in its fundamental aspect – utility. This is quite apparent especially if you want to bring pets or pets along.
Good Things Last Long
Despite these apparent shortcomings, there’s still nothing like it on the market. It is downright athletic, and boasts of a daring exterior design. The lack of ample roomy interior accommodations can be attributed to the sloping roof line, which cuts substantial headroom especially for the backseat passengers.
Breathtaking Interior And Even Better Performance
BMW says the reason it increased the rows to a maximum of three was because of customer demand. This tells you that the BMW X6 is an appealing and compelling crossover, its downsides notwithstanding. To wit, the 2017 BMW X6 interior furnishings are simply breathtakingly appealing, as are its performance specs.
This is where even the owners of the basic model get to say “awesome” whenever they’re pressing their gas pedals. Opting for the 2017 BMW X6 M model ups the ante to even more soaring levels.
But the BMW X6 2017 isn’t the only vehicle that has received refreshments in its class. Other alternatives worth your while include the similarly appealing Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class Coupe. It is flattery, elegant, sophisticated, and undoubtedly a performance mogul on its own right. Apart from the GLE-Class Coupe, other outstanding vehicles in its class include the Land Rover Range Rover Sport, Audi A7, Porsche Cayenne, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT.
