BMW X6 range to expand
29th March, 2011
BMW Australia is set to expand the BMW X6 range with
a new diesel variant: the BMW X6 xDrive30d.
The three-litre straight-six cylinder turbo-diesel engine has already available across the BMW
range, including BMW’s X5 where it accounts for well over half of all X5 sales in Australia.
Demand for BMW diesels is increasing with the car maker selling more diesel than petrol engines
in Australia in 2010 for the first time ever.
Priced at $109,900* the BMW X6 xDrive becomes the new entry model to the X6 range, broadening
the appeal of BMW’s big coupe-like SUV line-up.
The X6 xDrive30d boasts 180 kW of power output and peak torque of 540 Nm enabling the SUV to
sprint to 100 km per hour in 7.5 seconds.
Like all other models in the X6 line-up, the X6 xDrive30d gets an 8-speed automatic transmission
Dynamic Performance Control, which is unique to the BMW X6, is a standard feature on the X6
The X6 xDrive30d also features a number of BMW EfficientDynamics technologies including Low
Rolling Resistance Tyres, common-rail diesel technology and Brake Energy Regeneration, making it
efficient, without compromising power or performance.
The X6 xDrive30d also sees the introduction of a ‘five-seater’ option with a three-passenger rear
seat now available across the X6 range for the first time. This fifth seat, incorporating a
three-point safety belt, retains a centre armrest and the 60:40 fold-down split of the rear seats
Despite its competitive pricing, the BMW X6 xDrive30d offers high standard specification
including 19” Star-spoke alloy wheels, Sport Seats, Sports leather steering wheel, Bi-Xenon
headlights, and Nevada leather upholstery.
A number of innovations from the BMW ConnectedDrive suite of technologies are also featured as
standard including Head-Up Display, Rear View Camera with Top View, Professional Navigation,
Bluetooth and USB Audio Interface.
High-Beam Assist, Automatic Tailgate and Park Distance Control front and rear complete the
premium value package standard on the X6 xDrive30d.
An optional Sports Package will also be available on the new model offering 20” light alloy
wheels, a high-gloss shadow line and anthracite roof liner, all for $5,000*.
The BMW X6 xDrive30d is available to order now, with first vehicles expected to arrive in the
country in June.
