Aggressive third generation Muscle cars are based on the same X-5. But compared to its predecessor, this machine is superior in everything. The 2020 model has been updated in everything: the exterior design, interior and, of course, its "filling".
Let's see what the engineers of the German concern have changed BMW AG in a new series.
The car body is made in the style familiar to the X-series. The changes affected the entire front part. The radiator grill has become larger and received clear chopped edges. Another highlight was the illumination of the central air intake fins. Therefore, the car can be recognized even at night.
Aggressive appearance is given by thin headlights of the front optics. It is worth noting that all headlights are equipped with bright LEDs.
Car dimensions (in millimeters):
The sloping body shape gives the kupesh a sportiness. A split spoiler is installed at the rear of the roof. And the rear bumper is adorned with a stylish diffuser for a complete look.
How does the car go?
As you'd expect, the German manufacturer has equipped the car with a large number of assistants. This includes assistants for the start of the hill, control of blind spots, keeping in the lane and emergency braking. In more expensive trim levels there is an assistant for avoiding an accident (warning of a possible frontal and side collision).
The car behaves confidently when cornering. This is achieved by the Dynamic Handing system, which stabilizes the roll angle of the car. Therefore, performing a turn, the X-6 "bites" into the asphalt and demonstrates excellent stability until the maneuver is over. And the air suspension will make the ride comfortable on any type of road.
Under the hood, the manufacturer of the novelty installs four types of motors. These are two petrol and two diesel. Engine type - "bass" V-shaped eight and straight-six.
Technical data for different engine types:
|engine's type||In-line, 6 cylinders, naturally aspirated||V-8, turbine||In-line, 6 cylinders, turbine||In-line, 6 cylinders, turbine|
|Type of fuel||Gasoline||Gasoline||Diesel||Diesel|
|Acceleration to 100 km / h, sec.||5,2||4,1||5,2||6,5|
|Maximum speed, km / h.||250||250||250||230|
All models of the new X6 are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The air suspension with M Sport differential has four suspension settings. The car can be adapted for driving on snow, gravel, stones or sand. Therefore, before us is an almost rally car with a magnificent "appearance".
On the inside, the new model looks a bit like the interior of the X-5. The high-tech console features a 12,3-inch multimedia touchscreen. And the same dashboard screen.
It is worth noting that the manufacturer has abandoned classic sensors. Everything is transferred to electronic mode.
The basic equipment includes sports seats and a panoramic sunroof. And the factory illumination of the torpedo and control buttons on the doors give comfort during a trip in the dark.
The model, presented in Frankfurt at the motor show at the end of 2019, can be considered quite economical. Purely psychologically, it is generally accepted that an indicator below ten liters per 100 kilometers is a good indicator of efficiency.
Average fuel consumption in mixed mode for top engine versions:
|Drive40i, automatic transmission, 4WD||M50i, automatic transmission, 4WD||M50d, automatic transmission, 4WD||Drive30d, automatic transmission, 4WD|
|Mixed mode? l / 100 km.||8,6||11,0||7,2||6.6|
Bavarian cars are faster and more powerful. But compared to the previous version, the X6 retained their economy.
The novelty has not yet appeared in service stations. However, there is already enough experience in repairing the older brother of the X-6. Given the similarity of the main mechanical units, the cost of the main work on the new product will be:
|Type of work:||Cost, USD|
|Diagnostics and error reset||10|
|Diagnostics of the power supply system||35|
|Checking the undercarriage||15|
|Checking and filling the air conditioner||35|
|Valve train chain||From 45|
|Cabin filter||From 47|
|Brake discs||From 56|
|Brake pads (set)||From 35|
Scheduled maintenance will be about $ 205. This will include replacement of engine oil, oil filter, air filters, brake fluid replacement and computer diagnostics. As for a premium car, these are budget prices.
