Leading the way – all over again. The new BMW X6 and new BMW X4 bring sports-car characteristics to the high-riding all-wheel-drive segment, and blend coupe proportions with the powerful presence of a BMW X model. Where other makes are just starting to design sporty coupe SUVs, the segment-orginating BMWs are still at the front of the pack. Back in 1999, the BMW X5 conquered the world with a clever idea. It was the world’s first vehicle to combine the sporting ability BMW is renowned for with a luxurious feeling of space and a raised seating position. The trendsetter has since grown into a bestseller enjoyed by millions of customers, and is the founding member of a BMW X family that has grown and grown. Today, there is a representative of the agile BMW Sports Activity Vehicle to satisfy every space requirement, from the BMW X1 to the BMW X6.

Performance Control comes standard, allowing drive to be split between the rear wheels as required. And with its sporty chassis tuning and standard variable sports steering, the BMW X4 drives as dynamically as its looks would suggest.

“The new BMW X6 holds the road even better than the family-founding X5, and displays largely neutral handling up to its considerable limits. In other words, it’s another chip off the BMW block.”

BMW X1 –––– Pioneer of town and country
Its success has spawned numerous imitators, but the BMW X1 still sets the benchmark when it comes to demonstrating how much driving fun, space and flexibility you can pack into a compact car. No rival has so adeptly combined a dynamic driving experience with ultra-low fuel consumption. The BMW X1 may boast impressive levels of onboard space, but it will still always find a parking space to fit into – even in tight downtown streets.

BMW X3 –––– Unlimited versatility
The all-arounder with a peerless history of success. Its generous levels of space, excellent driving dynamics and impressive efficiency make it the ideal companion for work, family and leisure. This master of all trades is the first model to be available with the latest generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engines.

BMW X4 –––– The new X symbol
There’s never been a car quite like it. The new member of the BMW X family is the first Sports Activity Coupe in the mid-size segment. Performance Control comes standard, allowing drive to be split between the rear wheels as required. And with its sporty chassis tuning and standard Variable Sports Steering, the BMW X4 drives as dynamically as its looks would suggest.

BMW X5 –––– The original retains its lead
The BMW X5 radiates a pure sense of well-being, even off the beaten track and in deep snow. As many as seven people can enjoy the car’s seating comfort, workmanship, design and luxury equipment at any one time. Offering a truly sublime driving experience, the new BMW X5 once again raises the bar in the class it created.

New: BMW X6 –––– Powerful and dynamic
An exclusive car for anyone looking to combine sporty character with generous levels of space. The new BMW X6 has become even more luxurious and powerful, yet also more efficient. The second-generation model retains the irresistibly masculine aura of its predecessor.
